"Just a quick little story for ya... I went out to the club we just opened last night (The Motel) and gave my card to a couple people in the beginning of the night that I was talking to about real estate. Obviously they were blown away by the cards, but that's not the best part..... A couple of hours later I had random people approaching me and asking if I was Rob Visnjak. They said 'so-and-so' showed them my card and were wondering if they could have one! Are you kidding me?!! I knew they would turn some heads but never did I think people would be asking me for my cards just because they looked so good! How good an advertising tool is that?!!

Letterpress printing is a type of printing that has its beginnings in the 1450s, with Gutenbergs world changing invention of movable type. As you may surmise, techniques have been modernized over the centuries, but the amazing look is the same today as it was then: a deep impression into soft, thick paper makes a pillowing effect around each letter and image. The distinctiveness of this third dimension in printing brings an intriguing beauty to every printed piece that cant be duplicated by any other method. It, combined with excellent design and typography, draws wonderment from the recipient of each card or invitation. Why does it look this way? is most often the question asked. Our aim is always to elicit that response for your work or project, event or wedding.
What can you expect to gain by having a gorgeous letterpress business card? Your potential client looks more closely, touches the sculptural effect, thinks about the type of person who has such a beautiful, artistic object representing his or her work. By itself, it is a business builder, expressing your attention to detail and particular aesthetic. Letterpress is famous for a more spare look, serene and classical, even when used on a very contemporary design.
Modern design sensibilities married to the venerable art of letterpress printing techniques allows Studio Z to turn your dream into something you can mail or hand out with pride & excitement. Using our many years of experience, and rather remarkable intuition (some of our clients think were psychic) we work closely with you to express in your printed materials your style, intention, & to stay within your budget.
