Posted this piece yesterday on Instagram but sometimes iPhone snaps and truncated words are not enough. So I thought a proper photo (with a real camera-like contraption) and a few specifications were in order.
Our increasingly disgruntled pressman recently completed this business card for Parse & Parcel. They are a paper-obsessed group just up the road from us in Cleveland, Ohio.
Jill Dinicolantonio runs the service that furnishes sample books, information and other printed ephemera to graphic designers or anyone interested in paper materials. The Parcel delivers goodies by subscription. The Swatchbook instantly stocks your shelves with enough swatches to sooth even the most carpal tunnel afflicted fingers.
Designed by Christine Wisnieski, here are the appropriately nerdy details:
Paper Stock– Custom duplexed Neehah Classic Crest Stipple 130# Cover Epic Black and Classic Crest Stipple 165# Cover Solar White (finished weight of 295# Cover)
Silver foil-stamping on the black side and 1-color letterpress printing on the white side (using a special-mixed Pantone gray color ink)
Paper in background of photo– Strathmore Pure Cotton Letterpress in Smoke Gray (I thought Jill and Christine would appreciate that)
