Letterpress Printing has made substantial gains in popularity over our contemporary history, making it one of the most sought after forms of printing available today. This historic print process is one of the oldest forms of relief printing that creates a crisp impression of your printed design. Though timeless and traditional, the recent surge in popularity for Letterpress printing has opened several doors for the printing technique, causing it to ascend to new heights and pushing imaginations for what could be coming down the pipeline and what unique business cards are to be created next.

For example, let’s look at Jukebox, one of the printing companies who has taken advantage of offering letterpress printing. Jukebox has already ascended to some of these new heights with their recent finalization of one of the most complex letterpress designs of all-time, a 15 colour print with tremendously intricate registration. If you are looking for the thickest business card, Letterpress designs can be produced by Jukebox on a wide range of thicknesses, varying from from 20pt to 80pt (yes, you read that correctly). The elegant print process of Letterpress maintains a choice, old-world allure that makes it an epitome of elegance and good taste, commemorating a tradition for fine craftsmanship. Not only this, but Jukebox has combined the specialty print process of Letterpress with their ever-expanding 3D embossing technology, a perfect combination for a splendid, unique business card.

As a pioneer in their field Jukebox is coming up with exciting new products day by day. Check out more unique business cards on the Jukebox inspiration page and see what it takes to create the best business card possible with maybe the only printer venturesome enough to make it happen for you.

Below you can see some examples of creative and unique business card designs created by by Jukebox using letterpress printing:

Black Wolf Vodka

Black Wolf Vodka is a 3d business card with a black wolf protruding prominently from the card. If you were looking to make a great first impression, this card does that quite well. Who wouldn’t remember a black wolf sticking from a business card they’ve just received?


Wilcox Wards Consulting

This consulting company business card takes full advantage of letterpress printing and has a 3rd embossed design that looks like a white, comfortable pillow. This card certainly sticks out and looks much better than a plain, flat business card. It also uses a very thick 40pt stock to raise the card’s surface into multiple levels instead of one. Finally, golf foil is stamped on the surface of the card to create a royal effect.


Anna Beck

This business card for an event planner, Anna Beck, gives “unusual shape” a whole new meaning. Designed in zig-zag format (the actual shape is called a Ribbon) with several 3d elements on the card, this business card is definitely a unique take on presenting your services as an even planner. It uses a total of 3 colors, with die cutting and letterpress printing.



Don’t Try Studio

This branding and illustration studio business card was created to further the studio’s mission of providing design an graphic services. The colorful illustrations on the back of the card (which are 3d, though this may be a bit hard to see from the screen shot) give a really nice touch to this studio’s business card. This card is also made out of 3 stock layers, giving the card a unique texture and feel – especially along the edge. This card also features a total of 5 colors.



This business card, designed by an excellent illustrator Ksenia Denisenko, is in the shape of a lion with really beautiful, intricate details. This business card looks more like a work of art than a business card. A custom, metal dye was created to achieve the custom lion shape of the card. Letterpress printing was used to achieve the beautiful multi-color effect. This card boasts a total of 11 colors and is definitely something that impresses.
