Thank You Card: La Dolce Vita

This is a thank-you post card I made a few years ago on letterpress. It was actually pretty labor-intensive: whenever you want to change colors on the press, you have to clean the press, mix the new color (and by the way, pantone inks on the mixing palette look nothing like how they will eventually print–you have to pay close attention to ratios), re-ink the press, and re-register everything (this is also why when you get custom letterpress, the price increases exponentially from one- to two-color to three-color process). I have a stack of “dummy” versions of this card due solely to registration issues. Nevertheless, I love the work of letterpress and so enjoyed making this one. The backside is blank.
