Astro Business Cards

It’s yin meets yang. It’s all business meets let’s party! It’s a business card to covet.

Designed by and for an industrial design firm, the card blends all the latest trends: tactile letterpress printing and uncoated paper (two 130 lb. sheets duplexed to create stock so thick you could scoop ice cream with it).

The all-business front is letterpress printed on Neenah Classic Crest Solar White. The bold “A” logo reversed out of a red block with slate grey type. It looks the way any serious business should look – classic, solid, understated.

Then you flip it over and zing! Here comes the rhythm of tone-on-tone dots that get the music going on the party side of this card. Black foil-stamped dots create the company name amid a mesh pattern atop Epic Black Neenah Classic Crest. The slick raised surface of the foil makes it feel like there’s a screen embedded in the stock.

Tying it all together is red edge printing, which hides the fact the two sheets of paper were mounted together and brings back that logo red from the front.

Astro Business Cards were featured as a Paper Inspiration.
