Letterpress save the date cards

Here is a classically designed and letterpressed Save the Date card on 110# Lettra Pearl White with black ink.  It turned out beautifully, and is a reminder that sometimes brides can overdo the design and that sometimes simpler is better.  Call the shop if we can help you with something like this.  (952) 473-1000.


Spyhouse coffee letterpress block

Got to love the Spyhouse Coffee Letterpress cut shown here.  We recently ran their coffee bags for the new location on Central and Broadway in Nordeast.  Where did I put that picture of those things.....

Square Letterpress business cards on 220# Letra


We here at Wayzata Press get to print all kinds of letterpress projects.  This one was a 3x3 square business card on 220# Letra for Paul Mikunda.  Check out the texture on this paper!  It's unreal!

Letterpress restaurant gift certificates

Letterpress Tilia gift certificates were numbered with Rubin Red and perforated on our Kluge Automatic.
We made three passes on theses gift certificates for Tilia made of 67# Tan Vellum Bristol.  Once digitally to put down the black ink and the body on the ink on our Konica Minolta machine.  Then a second pass on the Kluge Automatic Letterpress to perforate the certificates, and a final pass on our C&P letterpress affectionately knows as Big Bertha for the numbering in Rubin Red.

Letterpress custom shopping/gift bags

We custom print a variety of custom gift and shopping bags for clients all over the nation from our Wayzata Press. Shown here is a navy blue bag with a metallic gold ink being run on Big Bertha.



Hand mixing ink

Ink is an important part of the letterpress and printing process here at Wayzata Press.  We exact match Pantone colors in two different ways depending on the client.  If it's a one time job with little chance for a re-run, we hand mix the ink to exacting tolerances.  If the client is likely to run more than one job, we buy the ink premixed in large quantities and keep it on the shelf.  Contact us today for your project.

Starting with process yellow from Mallard Ink Company in this case.

Adding blue to the yellow in measure portions.

Blue ink.

What was that ziplock commercial?  Yellow and blue make green?

Now we are getting somewhere.

Ready to go!



Pantone Matching Labels

Danish Teak Classics had us run these great 2" self adhesive labels for their shop.  Yes, we know it's not letterpress and rather offset printing, but these were too colorful not to include on our blog here.  We ran these with our AB Dick 9890 with Pantone 485 on an uncoated label sheet.
