Working from your design, we create a unique die for use with our Heidelberg Press. This presses down on the paper to apply an indent while inking. You end up with an inviting and textured business card that suggests both subtlety and sophistication.
Our hands-on technique for creating Letterpress business cards is firmly rooted in our artisanal values. You won’t find Blitz’s signature craftsmanship anywhere else in Toronto.
A time-honoured ritual as much as a tool, the renowned Heidelberg press is a testament to superior workmanship and an unyielding desire for quality. Designed and built by German craftsmen nearly 150 years ago, these presses quickly became a coveted possession for leading machinists. And it remains the industry-leader in quality and precision to this day. An imposing figure in any printing house, our original Heidelberg is an integral part of our printing processes. We use it to handcraft bespoke designs like perforations, embossing, die-cutting and hot foil stamps. This creates gorgeous products as unique as the machine itself. Simply because nothing else comes close to its meticulous process and beautiful end products.
