Letterpress Business Cards - Overview

Letterpress business cards use a traditional printing process with hand-mixed PMS spot color inks.

Fans of letterpress know that the chief characteristic is the dramatic debossed printing effect with super deep impressions.

To get the most out of your design we pair this old school print method with only the thickest most elegant letterpress-ready stocks.

Crane Lettra is arguably the most famous of these papers and was specifically designed for this print method.

Enhance your big thick edge with hand-painted edge colors in your custom PMS color of choice.

Free letterpress design service included with each order, for those who are not providing finished files.

About the Paper Stock

Crane’s Lettra is engineered for letterpress. It is 100% cotton, soft and luxurious to the touch, yet strong and stable on the press.

Lettra’s distinct “letterpress finish” is rare and engaging in a machine-made, commercial paper.

The cotton fibers are relatively uncompacted, so the sheet feels extra-bulky, even fluffy.

Artwork Guidelines

FontSize_image-01
  • Bleeds: all files must have a 1/8″ bleed on each side
  • Live Area: keep all critical text and artwork inside the trim
  • Colors: supply your files in CMYK color mode (not Pantone)
  • Resolution: 300 dpi
  • Fonts: fonts must be converted to curves/outlines
  • Transparencies: flatten all transparencies
  • File Types: PDF, EPS, TIFF or JPEG

Special Finish Guidelines

PP_Applying_A_Mask_Image_01_1_

If your project includes foil stampingspot UV, embossing, or die cutting you will need to provide a mask file (per finish) alongside your design files.

  1. Create a black and white pdf file where all black areas have a color value of K = 100%  (C=0 M=0 Y=0 K=100)
  2. Black areas represent where you want the finish to be located and white means no finish will be applied.
  3. If your project contains more than one finish, you must provide separate mask files for each finish.

    Absolutely love my new cards. Quality is incredible. The 32pt cards always leave a lasting impression with clients. I’ve ordered edge print cards from another company, but I’m much more impressed with these. They just feel better, heavier, sharper. Most people will think you’ve accidentally handed them two cards. The look on their face as they realize it’s a single card is priceless. You’ve just made a lasting impression.

    If you want a card that will get you noticed, you can’t go wrong with these edge print cards!

    This was my first order from Print Peppermint and I was quite pleased with the results. I am a independent graphic designer that often works with small business owners, looking for quality, who don’t have budgets to work with typical, local offset printers and/or the need to print minimum quantities that would be unnecessary for their needs.

    I have used several online printers over the years. Each one has served a purpose and has provided mixed results both great and awful. However, that said, Print Peppermint delivered a great product that my client was very happy with.

    My client opted for the 20pt Suede/Soft-touch laminated cards with rounded corners after seeing one up close that was included in the sample pack I received. The feel on these cards is really unique and the thickness is perfect…sturdy.

    I will definitely look at Print Peppermint for my next client’s needs.

    I've ordered my tags from them before they offered the hole/tagging feature with no problems before. When I did order the holed tags last, the holes were centered and everything about them was perfect. Our reorder, which I doubled in quantity for price efficiency, has all of the holes a little off to the left and I believe the design was printed backwards. As mentioned in the "cons," the hole-puncture residue is sitting on the front design versus the back.
