Zen of Letterpress Business Cards™ important info
Our Zen of Letterpress business cards templates are designed by SlowPrint founder and master typographer Peter Fraterdeus. Zen of Letterpress business cards are printed with matte black ink only, on Strathmore Soft White #110 writing cover stock. This is the lowest price we've ever quoted for our top-quality letterpress work, and therefore certain strict conditions must be met.
You choose the template, provide your contact info and wording and we'll get your cards to you in about three weeks. All of our standard Trade Terms and Conditions apply. Please review our FAQ before placing your order
Jobs are scheduled in batches of six-to-twelve, so delivery times are dependent on when enough orders have accumulated. Typical delivery is within 3 weeks.
All changes to templates are subject to a minimum $75 Design Charge.
Several template designs require a double-bump for solid ink coverage. If you need solid black for larger type or graphic elements, there's a $75 charge for this service. We run the cards with standard coverage to get crisp inking of small type and line elements. To produce solid coverage in larger areas, we then trim away the finer type and line from the polymer plate, leaving the heavy elements only. The Heidelberg Windmill press provides perfect registration, and allows us to then run the stock through the press again for a second hit on the solids. Without this double-bump, the solid areas will read as a dark gray rather than black, as the texture of the paper prevents a single hit from covering completely.
Any changes requested to templates will be billed at normal job rates. Please see the Exquisite Business Card Estimator for standard business card pricing. We will send a PDF proof of your design which must be approved before we will print the cards. No claims accepted or refunds given for Zen of Letterpress Business Cards.
If you need the cards faster, or want to use your own design, different colors, or different stock, see our Business Card Estimator where you can create your own quote with different paper options, ink colors, and single or double-sided cards.
