Hot off the press!

These business cards are pretty special for many reasons. One, Nicole designed them, two, they’re for Wade & Lindsay’s Lord Windsor Coffee Roasters, and three, they are letterpress. Here’s a look into the printing process. Can’t wait to see the Lord Windsor cafe in full effect coming soon.

First the design. Then the file. Then the plate.

Paper. And Ink.

Then to the press.

The Vandercook. What a beaute.

Setting up with the inked press. Now for the printing…

A (very) brief example. Crank and repeat.

And now for the close up.

About Soup and the Clouds

I treasure the small adventures in life. Such as, listening to records, making jam from farmer's market produce, seeing new sites, eating the best tomato I've ever had, reading a good book, watching a film, appreciating a good font, going for a long bike ride or walking down a street I've never walked on before. The list goes on.
