Glasgow Press worked with local graphic designer Kerr Vernon to produce a promotional pack of music-themed cards which showcase letterpress printing in all its tactile glory…

The project, entitled Impressive Print, comprises a letterpress printed cassette-size card box – as above, and indeed, below…

Open it up…

…and the inside of the box has a rathe nice foilblocked cassette graphic on it.

To find it though, you’ll have to remove the concertina-folded card housing that contains the six music-themed cards…

The pack and its contents has been printed on GF Smith Colorplan stock and features six different types of duplex board and a range of printing techniques including die cutting and metallic and holo-graphic foiling. Each of the cards relates to a particular track by a particular artist – see if you can guess them – spoiler alert: you can read the track / artist info on the backs of some of the cards in the following photo!

As this is a promotional give-away created to promote the work of Glasgow Press, if you would like to be sent one, get in touch with Dan on info@glasgowpress.com. To find out more about Glasgow Press and the kind of printing they do, visit glasgowpress.com
