“Each calling card is hand printed on a 1902 Chandler and Price letterpress. For $75 you get 100 personalized cards with your name and the option of either your email or phone number printed on 100% 110lb cotton paper.”
Here’s a short video of the letterpress that Evan “threw together” using his GF1 and iMovie (email subscribers can watch on-site).
The sample of cards Evan kindly offered arrived this week, and I photographed a couple alongside Moo’s offering below (I bumped-up the wordmark size before supplying Illustrator files).
Note cards from Moo (left), and the letterpress equivalent from Hoban Cards (right)
Here’s a Flickr set showing all 1500lbs of the 1902 Chandler and Price letterpress being moved from the basement of a print shop (where it sat unused for 50+ years) to Evan’s garage.
Have a look at calling cards Evan’s printed for other designers.
And here’s my original note cards post (still using/liking the Moo card holder).
Hoban Cards. Gets my vote.
