Custom Letterpress Holiday Cards for clients

Last week Bolds Creative’s designs went to press by Mindy Belloff.


Each run had to be carefully aligned with the black and red press runs, two-color front, of the cute Santa and text design.


The red ink was custom mixed to add a bright, festive feel on the light blue Italian cotton rag paper



and the bright purple logo gave the inside 3-color run, a  nice happy punch.


Everything looks spectacular in letterpress!


Happy Holidays & CHEERS!

Consults, Custom Business Cards, Wedding Invitations, Portfolio Sheets

The Studio continues to be busy with many projects, jobs, classes, and consults.  A few here:

Portfolio Title Pages printed letterpress for photographer Tom Grill for a suite of prints in an edition of 20. 2-color black with a custom mixed grey.


Sarah & Phil chose a horizontal design by their friend, for their wedding invitations, letterpress printed on a thick, textured watercolor paper, with a dark pink and blind emboss.  It is quite modern and elegant with gold edging

Mindy Belloff printed 1500 business cards, 2-sided for Big Foote Music + Sound, based in New York City and Sao Paulo.


We had a private business consult with Priscilla, visiting NYC from Brazil.  She acquired a German press with goals of starting her letterpress business for wedding invitations and Mindy Belloff got her on the right track to get her press in working order and multiple tips for setting up and printing with plates from digital designs.

Pretty in Purple letterpress invite

Mindy Belloff designed a custom card for Robyn’s special upcoming Bat Mitzvah day.

We used a beautiful font to highlight her name and mixed a lovely purple ink to compliment the grey text.


We printed theHebrew name in blind emboss and used a white on white envelope liner. The thank you cards are a fold over in purple. It all looks fabulous!
