Get Carded: Letterpress

Here at Move LifeStyle, it’s no surprise that we love paper and print in their numerous incarnations. We designed a place to showcase the beauty of the oft-overlooked business card and asked our creative design intern, Tianna, to curate some of her favorite styles. – Jenn

Having a dull business card is like having a weak handshake. When someone hands you their card and it’s flimsy, dull and boring, are you going to keep it? Did they make an impression on you?

A letterpress business card impresses the receiver with its weight, texture and visual appeal. For those unfamiliar with letterpress printing, it’s the art of relief printing using a printing press, using movable type and other designs pressed against paper to form an ‘impression’. Here are some of my favorites:
