A beautiful client—designer relationship between Print Publish and ALTR resulted in a fantastic award-winning print collaboration with our studio.

These business cards were foiled in white and letterpressed in black ink to the front, before two stocks were duplexed together, letterpressed to back and finally die cut. A total four passes through the Heidelberg, each a labour intensive process.
