My good buddy Gideon Naf just printed me up some posh old-fashioned letterpress bizness cards. The kind on the thick stock, where you see the heavy lead imprint on the reverse. They are a thing of beauty.
He’s got this great blog where he just breaks down his process step by step, so if you’re interested in seeing exactly how to make a woodcut, letterpress or etching- just click here.
Also, get him to print you up some suave cards to impress people with, everyone’s doing it!
