When Val Pigott of Stonehouse Studio in Bobcaygeon needed a new business card, word on the street told her to visit Spitting Images. Val is an artist in Bobcaygeon who needed the design of her new cards to reflect the flair of her studio. A heavyweight textured card stock suited her style. The cards are designed with a dual purpose: the backs of the cards are left with open space to write prices or short personal messages to her clients.
The cards were designed to be a premium, instantly distinguishable business card. We chose an extra heavyweight 24pt thick uncoated card stock. This card is comparable to the weight of a coaster. The edges of the cards are painted red to top off the impressive stock.
The design picks up visual cues directly from the sign in front of the studio. We recreated the look of it down to the wood grain texture and the craftsmanship of the signmaker.
