I wasn't sure if this was actually going to happen, but on Saturday it was confirmed. I received a small package on my doorstep and from the packing tape I immediately knew what it was, my complimentary copy of Iron Beasts Make Great Beauty by Studio On Fire. I excitedly opened the package and started flipping through the pages. To my surprise not one, but two of my design projects were printed on its glossy pages; my business cards for Dita Eyewear and my Costa Rica Wedding Invites. Sweet!
On April 8th Lauren and I got married in Costa Rica at the Tabacon hot springs. It was all very last minute, back in February we came to a realization that having a big elaborate wedding here in the states just wasn’t for us. So on a good friends recommendation we decided to run away with a few family and friends to get hitched in the shadow of an active volcano… The wedding couldn’t have been more perfect.
Anyways, these are the invites that I whipped up for the occasion. They are 3 color letterpress on 110lb 100% cotton card stock and I’d say that Studio on Fire did an amazing job on the printing as usual, thanks again guys!
New Dita business cards came in on Friday. I’m really happy with how they turned out and relieved that they finally went to print. If I remember correctly, I designed these cards over a year ago… It’s been that long to get them approved for printing… The cards were custom die-cut, duplexed, letterpressed by Studio on Fire a small letterpress house in Minneapolis, I’ve used them a couple times now for various projects and have been always very happy with the results.
UPDATE: Studio of Fire posted their own killer writeup here: Beast Pieces.
My Gracen business cards finally came back from the printer, had a few problems with the paper availability, which delayed things a bit. I’m extremely happy with how they turned out, the photos hardly do them justice. The cards are duplexed with letter-pressing both sides, printed on 80% recycled post consumer stock using soy based inks.
