25 Embossed and Letterpressed Business Cards
We all have seen and loved embossed and letterpressed business cards and they really are a class apart. These business card designs are not very easy to find and is even tougher to get them printed. However, if you come up with some good design for embossed or letterpressed business cards, then it is also not sure whether you will get those cards printed the way you wanted them to be. This is very true because unlike other normal cards, these embossed and letterpressed business cards use cotton paper which is sort of coarse paper. The paper is suitable for printing but is different in texture, hardness and feel. The good thing is that it is best for embossing and letterpressing. The embossed and letterpressed business cards prepared from this cotton paper does have a great look and be sure that you can impress anybody if you have a really good design.
As you all know that to have a good and attractive business card is important to build contacts and to make people remember you so you should have a really beautiful business card always with you. But remember that in letterpressed business cards, the object or the words go deep but it is the other way round for embossed ones. In embossed business cards, the letters or objects are raised up and this is what makes the difference. So choose wisely and please do comment if you liked this article.

This kraft stock we used to print the Isokon cards is as thick and luxurious as our white cotton paper. We were a little concerned with how the red would come out on the kraft paper and so, we were happy to see the red was as bright and vibrant as if we printed on white paper. In addition to the kraft stock, we also rounded two corners on the card to give them a unique look.
