business cards, letterpress workshop

I've been having a great time volunteering at the Center for the Book (especially blogging!). I few weeks ago I took the Introduction to Letterpress: Business Cards evening class and made these fun, simple business cards. I've since taken Letterpress 1: Handmade Notebooks (post forthcoming! Don't forget, I'm still catching up on things I made when I wasn't posting). I was excited that I got my name to look similar to how it does on my website.

After I took them home, I spiced them up a bit with some watercolor washes, inspired by Oh Happy Day's cards for someone named Aubrey, which I learned about through this inspiring post on Bird and Birch. Before I start handing them out, I'm going to add a bit of clarity by going over some places where the ink didn't quite fill in the letter -- I didn't know enough about the process to see that some of the type pieces I picked wouldn't print well.

Your business cards are very formal and that fit you as a businessman. I just love the simplicity of the cards.
