Business Card Design - Letterpress

55


55 simbi per hour - Virtual OK

I'll help you design a great business card that will look beautiful when printed letterpress! There are certain things that look amazing when printed with this old-school technology, and certain things these presses can do (like print on thick papers, blind-deboss without ink, etc.) that can really add a lot of depth and interest to a card design.
Do you already have a logo, but just need layout, and maybe converting to be more letterpress-friendly? Do you have nothing except a great idea, and need someone to do all the computer work and talk you through the process to make your vision come to life? Wherever you are, we can make it work! I would estimate that the average design can take between 1-3 hours depending on where you are in the process to start with, and how many options you'd like me to explore with you.
This specific service is for DESIGN ONLY and DOES NOT include the actual printing -- please see my other services for letterpress card printing.

Training & Qualifications


I've been running my own print studio, Letterpress PDX, for almost 7 years now. I've printed hundreds of projects, taught classes, and just lived the printing life! I do this full time, so you will be receiving a very professional product.

Availability & Preferences


I'm usually in my studio Monday-Friday, and sometimes on the weekend too. Email is a great way to get a hold of me, and if you're in the Portland area we can set a time for you to come by the studio and check out papers and samples in person.

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!

About Jenn Lawrence

PLEASE NOTE: I've been pretty busy at work lately, so can't always take every trade offer. I also have to cover my material costs which can be pretty high with letterpress (paper & plate cost), which ...you may need to cover. If you're not in Portland, you will have to pay for shipping. I own a small letterpress & design studio in North Portland, and recently moved in a new (to me) house nearby. I work all the time, but it's by choice, so I'm a pretty happy person! I love the Kenton neighborhood, and can usually be found at my studio Monday-Friday and sometimes even on the weekends. My boyfriend and I live in the N. Portland neighborhood too, and spend most of our free time watching Star Trek, drinking beer, playing bar trivia, or camping. Some of the stuff I could use help with is minor construction/painting stuff around our house, help with deep/seasonal cleaning, yard maintenance, larger yard projects (death to grass!), and maybe better signage at my studio. We also always appreciate edible goods such as pastries and really anything edible... Or drinkable. Yum. Because I spend a lot of time on my feet at work, and doing repetitive motion-type-stuff with my arms, I'm also in desperate need of massage & all other bodywork things! Like, massage is just something that I have to consider a business expense so I don't break myself completely and have to change jobs. I also enjoy trading for things I can give as gifts to friends and family (gift certificates to haircuts etc.).show more
