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.

About Jenn Lawrence
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.) I've been pretty busy at work, and have built up a lot of Simbi credit, 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), so if we do a trade there is probably going to have to be cash payment as well.show moreOpen to other proposals
