Letterpress is a form of printing invented centuries ago that has long been superseded by modern methods. However, when used to create letterpress business cards, it’s a process that can deliver maximum impact for your business. Instead of the design being inked onto the card, it is impressed with physical force, creating an exquisite finish that feels and looks stunning.
The perfect choice for creating ultra-premium business cards for high-end brands
You have a wide range of options to choose from when selecting the right business cards for your business. One of the most elegant, charming, and luxurious, however, is the letterpress business card. Letterpress business cards have an effortless ultra-premium look and feel, where subtle but unmistakeable quality stands out in a world of gadgets, gimmicks, and noise. Letterpress is the Aston Martin of the business card world.
Traditional printing method, modern and professional result
Letterpress business cards are unique as they are both subtle and imposing at the same time. They demonstrate an appreciation of quality and traditional workmanship, in addition to design and consummate professionalism. This makes letterpress ideal for clean designs that have a classic, elegant old-world charm.
Letterpress business cards with a custom design
While clean designs are best, there are other options too. This includes the use of colours, plus you can have design elements (such as patterns) where there is no ink at all. Instead, the effect is created by the impress alone. When we create the custom design for your letterpress business cards, we’ll aim to use as few design elements as possible. This prevents the card from being overloaded with information, adding to the elegance. Keep this in mind when reviewing the digital proof of the design we create.
From the old to the new – modern letterpress printing
Letterpress is a traditional form of printing that dates back centuries. Today, it isn’t widely used, as there are cheaper and faster methods of printing available. Its main application today is to create visually stunning printed materials that are tactile and luxurious. The finish is unrivalled due to the crispness of the lettering and its undeniable charm.
As for the process, it has been completely transformed by technology. In the past, it was only possible to impress letters. Today, however, we can impress almost any design, including delicate shapes and patterns. This makes this historical printing technique as relevant today as it was when it was in its heyday.
Letterpress business cards stock
We use the best thick, premium cardstock to produce letterpress business cards for our NZ customers. These cardstocks are soft and luxurious and have a pleasing texture. The lettering of your business card and your logo is then impressed onto the cardstock, creating a finish that is as fantastic to the touch as it is visually.

We will also create a bespoke plate of the design of your business card for use on our letterpress printing machine in Auckland. This is a more mechanical process than modern forms of printing that adds to the uniqueness of the end product that you receive. Plus, we’ll keep the bespoke plate on file for any future print runs.

Our clients say we rock
My new business cards are so beautiful. I’ve been handing them out to everyone just to show off! Really great communication too. They got to know my business so they could create something that suits our vibe perfectly!
We used White Rabbit for everything for our business from initial logo designs through to business cards, websites and our first annual general report. They’re even saved under my favourites in my phone cause I call them so much. They’re always happy to help and always make time to talk even when I’m quite possibly being a nuisance!
Thank you so much White Rabbit! They did a fabulous job at designing a gorgeous logo, stylish business cards and user-friendly website that perfectly suits my business. Simon was an incredible delight to work with as he communicated clearly through the entire process and made sure that my dream was fulfilled.
