Every month Card Nerd holds a Business Card Of The Month award. This months award goes to: Hidden ltd.
The cards were letterpress printed on 200lb Eclipse Black Wausau with silver ink, then the press sheet was laser cut. The laser cutting was used due to the complexity of the cutting die and the size of the print run. Laser cutting does a really nice job, especially on darker stocks were the edge burn is less evident. With lighter colored and white stocks, a mask is sometimes sometimes required to prevent burning marks on the face of the sheet. – Studio On Fire

On the front of the card is an illustration of me as a pirate with an eye patch, with two crossed paint brushes and a banner displaying my name and profession.
The back of the card displays a treasure map with my contact information spread about the map. I’m not much of a phone person so my number isn’t displayed, but I have included my e-mail, blog address, and twitter name. Both the front and back of the card have a look to them of old worn paper.
These stylish business cards were created by Alan Valek, a Freelance Art Director and Graphic Designer residing in Long Beach, CA.
Black Royal Compliments paper was duplexed to achieve a whopping #200lb. stock! Die-cut round corners and white engraving on both sides finished these cards off.
