For all print collateral, the paper and print finish is essential in making the design come to life. Through the years and after experimenting with different printing techniques and paper stock, we have a good knowledge of what works and what doesn't.
For our business cards, we wanted a sophisticated yet refined result that matches our minimalistic identity. We picked a Cordenon Italian paper called 'Wild'. The paper has been responsibly sourced and made of 35% cotton at 450gsm; it has a firm yet soft feel while being an excellent weight to deboss. For the front, we used a deboss with clear foil on the logo, and for the back, we used black foil for the information.
Patrick Bateman would approve. :)
