J.D. Gordon Stationery

Our friends at J.D. Gordon Advertising in Sioux City, Iowa, are slowly working their way toward becoming letterpress junkies. We printed their stationery suite (business cards, letterhead and envelopes) late last year and I still am so pleased with the final look. They used French Paper Muscletone 140# cover in pure white for the business cards and French Paper Dur-o-tone 80# butcher in white.

One thing I found interesting about the final look of the stationery was how using letterpress really allowed the paper's unique butcher paper finish to shine through. I think in this instance letterpress printing really adds to the design because each piece is slightly different from each other depending on how the ink covered from sheet to sheet.
