This is the single most complex business card we’ve ever designed.
Crowned by Grace was a Christian motivational speaking team. They wished to exude grace, class, and excellence in every interaction, starting from the moment they handed someone a business card.
Anatomy of the card — They were printed first, with a coat of varnish on the solid purple on the back. The crown on top is double blind embossed/debossed and foil stamped on both sides of the card. We had to use an extra-thick paper stock so that the foil stamping on the other elements (team name and scrollwork) wouldn’t emboss through, as it normally does. To achieve the brushed metal look on the crest, it was first printed with a matte silver metallic ink, and then a clear iridescent foil stamp.
Crazy complex. Crazy expensive. But if you have a job that requires highly specialized printing techniques, we have the know-how and the connections.
