Shine Advertising Co. in Madison, WI designed this flashlight box wrapper as a promotional piece for their agency. The look is a pretty sweet 1800’s ephemera inspired style and inside is a mini Maglite flashlight. We letterpress printed in four spot colors on Smart Genisis Husk 110lb C – 100% PCW. There are three tones of blue ink plus red ink. Chad, the design director, came in and spent the day on press with us. Take a look at a few press room images he created with an iphone camera using an app called HiCon – kinda nice black and white effect. A note on press checks – We are always happy to have clients come in for press checks. And if you can’t make it, we often do a virtual press check and send along photos as we are on press. We schedule a press time and you can wait by your computer for letterpress goodness. That really gives no excuse not to letterpress with us. :)

The good folks at Taiga Records sent this sleeve design for letterpress printing last year. They are two color letterpress printed on a 100% PCW 160lb stock from Smart Genesis. They sold through all 500 copies in a month and we are now working on letterpress printing of another new album to be completed early this June. All of their records are pressed on 200 gram virgin vinyl. Andrew at Taiga asked us to spread the word about one of the artists on the label performing in Minneapolis.
