You finally got the guts to give the man the finger and venture out on your own. Too bad those home-printed business cards look like clip art vomited onto old construction paper.
Upgrade to crafted calling cards from Pike Street Press.
In his West Edge print studio and gallery space, proprietor-slash-self-taught letterpress master Sean Brown produces the charming, eye-catching designs on tree-free, 100 percent cotton paper. Have your own pattern and lettering in mind? Brown is happy to oblige.
If you’re looking for inspiration, peruse the shop for intriguing prints (Weapons of Mass Creation), whimsical coasters (the Space Needle), and beautiful stationery. Or simply discuss your desired look with Brown himself.
Circulate the micro stunners to impress would-be clients and stick it to the naysayers.
Available at Pike Street Press, 1510 Alaskan Way (206-971-0120 or thepikestreetpress.com), $150 and up.
