To inform friends and family about our newly married status, we designed and printed announcements. The announcements feature Empire, an extra condensed gothic typeface that our studio mate Ethan has in several sizes of metal type. Though the cards are basically three colors, they passed through the press four times (four runs).
The image above shows type-setting for the third print run with gold text.
I love how this blue turned out.
This shows the lock-up for the final press run.
Here’s a detail of the final announcement print.
