“As a design firm I knew it was important for us to have business cards that represented a high level of quality, design, and production techniques without being trendy. I stuck with a classic black and white setup, but wanted to add a twist that would make these cards stand out from the pack. The cards were printed on a privately-owned letterpress by a friend of a friend. We used 92# Reich Savoy for the top and bottom layers, and I had him sandwich in a 100# cover sheet of French Paper’s pop-tone in black licorice.”

    how do you layer the colors of paper together?… do they stay together over time?

    @Lisa looks like its a heavy cardstock with the back as black. When cards are stacked it will look like that naturally.

    I am also curious as to how this technique of combining three papers together is done.

    I’m not quite sure exactly how he triplexed the sheets, but I have a call in to ask for details. Will post when I know more.
