March Madness

In between the usual busy work and non-stop designing,  setting type, drawing and etching copper plates and printing intaglio and letterpress for the new book edition – was designing and printing cards for an artist, realtor, and consultant.  They look marvelous….

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.

Business Cards

Mindy Belloff printed 2,000 business cards, grey & blue on each side,  for The Colony, a trendy creative company with offices in Sydney, Shanghai & New York City.



The back of the card was particularly challenging as David, the CEO insisted on letterpress only. Getting a full color field of grey ink required a lot of time and skill.




The postcards were also 2-sided in grey and blue, printed on the same fluorescent white, thick card stock.


Everything looked fabulous in letterpress!
