Winning design #215 by redlogo, Business Card Design for Letterpress Business Card - Turning Point Contest
Gold Medal

designed by redlogo

Project description

After having a Card Design that was selected not be viable for printing we have to start over. 

A Couple things to keep in mind: 

1. Absolutely NO Foil
2. Must have some sort of Letterpress Design
3. No QR Codes

We learned from our last contest that Black does not work well as the card color for Letterpress Designs.  But we definitely want a 3D Effect. Back side should be included.

Keywords: Simple, Elegant, Depth, Memorable, Double Sided,

The attached Adobe Illustrator Files have layers setup that should be easy to navigate. There is a layer for the colors that we would accept.

  • this is my new design #235
  • this is my new design #234
  • this is my new desigen #233
  • I'm sending last version with option for rounded edges. This is triplex business card without edge painting. #229
  • We have had issue with other designs in which printing companies told us edge painting and rounded corners was not possible. This has been my dilemna #226
    • About #226, @kaswetlik No problem, I only submit the files in 2D...edge painting is a type of card model in printing company!

  • Any editing in text or colour can be done as per your wish.
    You are most welcome to change any thing.feedback welcome! #226
  • Not bad but I really like the rounded corners and I am disappointed I can't have both. Do you have any ideas way outside what you already provided #216
    • About #216, @kaswetlik
      Sure, I have other option for outside and I will send samples tomorrow. Thank you!

  • hi, thank you for the invitation! i'm not such an expert regarding print, so i'm not sure i can offer any better ideas. will put it in mind if anything comes up. good luck!
  • The back is great and the upper half of the front is fine. I like the concept of the front lower half with all the information it just may appear too busy. Thanks for all the designs - I appreciate it. #213
  • Great design - I am skeptical that it would be able to letterpress but would look great digital printed #218
  • Thanks for adding the T - Still a bit more industrial than we are looking for #224
  • There is T #224

  • Thanks - I do like the overall concept of the card, but I feel its too industrial and also the "T" is missing in the name. We are trying for more of a look of elegant and refined with the modern yet simple features. Thanks for the submission, I would love to see more from the feedback #217
