These were Pete’s first business cards from 1982. He used them for freelance projects before he started his studio in 1991. The cards are all different. The cards are printed using oil board or also known as stencil board. Pete’s printer almost broke the press because the oil board was like “plywood.” The dashes are cut with a stencil machine; the colored paint samples are then taped in from the back, a thin sheet of brown paper is affixed to the back, and finally the cards are trimmed.
We have a history of producing the world’s most labor intensive, expensive and difficult to produce business cards. A tradition not lost on our latest cards.
