Letterpress labels

I've been spending some early morning and late evening hours in my new studio, trying to get some things printed while the workmen are away.

Here's one of the projects I recently completed. They are labels for my brother's new business, which I'll tell you more about in the coming weeks.

I print several cards at a time on each sheet of paper, and then I trim them down to individual labels.

Each label is printed three times: once as a blind impression (printed with no ink) with a background floral pattern, then a metallic orange for the fish, then black for the kanji and name.

In this round of label-making, I made almost 2,000 of these little suckers!

  1. Gorgeous! I love the patterned background and bet the metallic orange adds an eye-catching bit of shine.
