Staak Business Cards

Client

Internal Project

Whilst being a digital agency here at Staak, we still appreciate the expressive, tactile quality of a nice print job. So, when it came to producing our business cards, we knew we wanted to create a piece that conveys our passion for craftsmanship which informs everything we do. For print, this meant traditional letterpress, which led us to working with the fine people at Cotton Letterpress who share our love of crafting bespoke creative for their clients. They kindly let us come on a bit of a road trip to document the production process and to say ‘hi’.

We’re over the moon with the finished cards and following this foray into print, are definitely keen to do more in the future.

With its' various retro mechanisms, knobs and shining chrome, the Heidelberg press used in the production of our cards is the printing equivalent of a beautiful classic car. Andy, our printer on the job, was very helpful in answering our many questions and explaining the various processes involved. Being digital creatives, it was fascinating to see our computer files converted into tangible printing plates and how they were put to use with ink or foils.

The finished cards in two flavours.

Representing the two sides to Staak (Studio & Services) and their respective colour schemes, we’ve produced the cards using a couple of triplexed stocks from GF Smith.

An abstracted, randomised element of the logotype was used on the reverse of the card, echoing graphic elements used elsewhere in the rebrand where we’d contrasted matt and gloss finishes.
