Client requested to see one "seal" like concept and it became final. Business cards will be letterpressed.

That works too. Be a tough letterpress in those fine outer lines though?

Thanks, Mike. I agree! I warned them of that but they took the card and decided to see the printing through themselves. Not sure I will even get to see it. Hope it looks cool.

Maybe suggest just LPing the center?

That is a really good point! Thanks for the suggestion, I will pass that on to them. Didn't think of that, thanks!

I think you should have just made the outer border solid and the same shape as the center because it reminds me of Alligator bumps. Oh well done deal. See ya Later Alligator.

Thanks, Agencija and Alen! Glad that is coming through. Conceptually the eye plays into the movie and television production (visual) thing.

Re: letterpress and fine lines, actually, most letterpress shops can effectively print down to .5 pt. rules and about 5 or 6 pt. type. Line work is actually what works best for letterpress. Some shops, like Studio on Fire in Minneapolis, are able to turn out precision results on complex jobs that most other letterpress shops won't even touch, and I think I've seen examples of prints with 3 pt. type.

%5E I modified the design after Mike raised the issue. The lines that were in there were quite tiny. But good points, it is amazing what good letterpress shops can nail. You mention Minneapolis, is that where you are at? I'm in Omaha. Your cool mis-registered style and shape usage would lead me to believe you are in the area! :)

Hey, thanks for the compliments, Sean. Newp, I'm actually in Baltimore, but I have a massive ____-on for Midwest design and letterpress, especially the stuff coming out of Minneapolis. I stalked Studio On Fire for years before I was ready to pull the trigger on my own bizcards. And as a matter of fact, I'm on a major, nationwide full-time job search, and a good majority of the firms I'm looking at are in Minneapolis/Saint Paul. I just might be in your neck of the woods!
