Letterpress Business Cards - Black
Let's print something cool!
I will print you 250 custom letterpress business cards, single sided, with black ink, at my studio in North Portland (please see my other Simbi trade for a color ink option).
This Simbi trade is for my labor/printing ONLY, please see cost breakdown below (I accept payment via paypal, check or send you an electronic invoice from Square Register, and will provide you with a detailed quote once we decide which paper you are using).
*The plate we will use for printing costs $25, and is reusable.
*Paper cost can vary from between $10-$25. I keep several papers in stock, including: 110lb 100% cotton Crane's Lettra paper (available in Bright White, Soft White, or Cream); 220lb double-thick 100% cotton Crane's Lettra paper (available in Bright White, Soft White, or Cream); Neenah's Wild paper in 111lb or 166lb (a nice soft white, with a slight texture to the surface); Neeha's Wild paper, 111lb in Black; and a couple different brown/kraft papers as well. My turnaround time is usually about a week, but can be up to 3 weeks.
*If you aren't in Portland and need them shipped, they will fit in a flat-rate USPS box which costs $6-$12 depending on paper thickness
*Optional: If you'd like a double-sided card (black ink both sides), or if you'd like to add "blind deboss" (printing without ink where it just leaves an impression) it would be an additional $25 + 25 Simbi.
This Simbi trade does not include design (please see my other Simbi service for that). I'll need you to provide me with a good quality image file (the best is a .pdf exported from either InDesign or Illustrator, with all text outlined and all images converted to black & white only vectors). If you see one of my designs either in the examples here, or on my instagram @LetterpressPDX that you like, and just need me to put in your specific info, I can do that for free and won't charge any design fees etc.
Please let me know if you have any questions, and I look forward to printing with you!
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.
