Re-Surface Re-print

I reprinted these for Donna a couple of weeks ago, but hadn't had the chance to upload the photos yet. We tried a stiffer, more textured card this time, and it worked a treat. BFK Rives is a perfect stock for inviations and such, but just doesn't cut it as a business card stock - it's not hardy enough.

Hey, there!

We love to use the really thick stuff on business cards as well. We've done several two-sided cards. And with a real thick cotton paper -- we use a lot of Crane's -- you can really get a big impression on both sides.

What I tell our clients as we hand them the thick cards is that we're helping them crowd their competition out of people's wallets. ;-)

Greetings from the States!

I too have noticed that papers used for invitations are often not appropriate for business cards. Arches makes a paper called "Moulin Du Gue", it's a little bit more expensive than BFK but not much. It has a beautiful thickness and a heavy cotton look and feel.

P.S. - I love the blog keep up the good work!
