This card makes use of crisp, bold, black-and-red lettering on a more rustic paper to achieve a textured look and feel. The material is a 110 lb. cover uncoated kraft paper. Each card was printed in-house with archival inks and cut by hand from a master sheet to 54 X 15.25 mm. The final aspect ratio of the cards was chosen as a result of the typography, rather than the other way around. Obviously, it’s a very small card, but the text turns out to still be very legible at that size due to the contrast and scale.
