Our new Sherpaa business cards arrived. Not to get all American Psycho on anyone, but they’re ridiculously stunning, and even more so in real life. They were designed by the lovely and talented Kari Rimell (hit her up if you’re looking for some design work). And they were printed, pressed, and painted by Henry and Co, the finest letterpress shop you can imagine—impeccable service, an obsession for detail, and just all around real gentlemen. Just look at that embossing and Sherpaa-colored edge-painting! And here’s the real geekery:

The paper is really white. That’s really the only way to have the red/orange look like the right color – print directly on white paper and print gray ink around it to make it look like gray paper. The edge painting completes the illusion.”
