Sonya is a local bookbinder who does some absolutely stunning work. Not knowing anything about bookbinding I won’t try to describe it other than to say everything she showed me was “really cool” and “virtually flawless”. Sonya was trained under master binders in France and works in both contemporary and classic styles out of her studio in Somerville (or maybe Cambridge… I’ll claim her for Somerville).
After discussing ideas for business cards over the summer, a design was settled on and these cards were printed. Black ink on 160lb Mohawk Antique Vellum Milkweed stock. I’ve printed a few projects on this stock recently with much success, the 160lb weight takes a great impression but isn’t so thick that you need a separate fanny pack to carry your business cards in.

Here at Fringe, our boys Bryan and Ian are making final preparations for their trip down to Philly this weekend for the bike expo, where they’ll be showcasing their handmade bike frames.
Bryan had me print up a new batch of Royal H business cards in time for the event, featuring a silhouette of one of his custom frames on thick chipboard. An email address on the reverse results in a simple, uncluttered card.
Shout out to Nao for the handcarved lug, repurposed here for a card stand.
