Duplex & Beyond Letterpress stocks


 My card is printed on a sample of quintalplexed cardstock. Constructed using 3 sheets of soft, felt 80# text, paper. Sandwiched between 100# Crane Lettra & 110# smooth Classic Crest cover.
 
 This business card for Drew Press, Inc. is printed in 3 colors, 2 sided, that is 6 passes thru the press. Printed after gluing, without any bruising or show-through. This was printed using handset types on the text so I kept that impression light.

This side of the card was printed while it was still moist from the gluing process.
This allowed for deeper impression while not not wearing out the type. 
        Thats a lie, it took  a little of the edge off........................But I liked it.

  1. Hello Turtleman. We used the custom business cards you made at quilt market in May. They were a hit at market. Because they were heavier we got a good share of the door prizes at the Schoolhouse teaching series. They were also beautiful, of course.
    Thanks for the great job. We especially liked the quilt design paper you glued to the back of the cardstock to make our custom cards!

  3. You replied to a thread created on reddit concerning my Pearl letterpress. I wasn't sure where to contact you so I thought I'd just comment here. I want to restore it back to a usable condition and could really use an experts opinion. If you have time to answer some questions feel free to contact me. I'm located in Tulsa, OK. Have 2 presses. One is in good condition.
