Unusual Letterpress Printed Wooden Business Card
Using wood as a material for business cards isn't new in and of itself but this design shows an innovative way of getting images onto this material. Wooden business cards are usually laser etched or cut to create images. This is very limiting in terms of colour as it is only the colour of the wood itself and its response to a variety of stains that can be used as a palette. However it is possible to print inks on to wood and letterpress is an excellent way to do this especially if tough metal plates are used to print the image - they can stamp deeply into the wood leaving not only colour and ink behind but also causing a deep texture to be added.
