Behind the Scenes with Reb Peters Press

In just a few days I’ll be packing up my bags and headed out to Utah for Alt Summit.  Having gone to Alt last year, I know that business cards are a big deal. Like a really big deal.  Last year I designed my own business cards (still love them) but this year I wanted to kick it up a notch and have them letterpressed by a professional.

I learned about Rebecca Peters Press in Oakland from a bride who was working with her on letterpress wedding invitations.   I knew that I wanted my business cards to be simple - understated really.  Minimal color and simple in the design.  I let Rebecca take it from there.
press2fThe day Rebecca was printing my business cards I went to her Oakland studio to watch the entire process firsthand.  From the cutting of the paper to the mixing of the color.   I loved having the opportunity to be involved and provide on the spot feedback.  Truth be told, it was awesome to have a few hours to chat with Rebecca and learn about her process and how her business got started.


If you’re looking for letterpress invitations or business cards, Rebecca is your girl!

  2. Love the post about our business cards, the cards are unique-like you and your business-and it is wonderful to not only see that you used another entrepreneur, but someone just as artistic as you are. The cards look gorg!
