A new letterpress identity package was recently created for Vista Caballo by Thinktopia. Letterhead, envelopes, business cards, note cards, journals and labels were all letterpressed by Studio On Fire and are all worth a look. Great use of both texture and color with their selections of paper including Crane’s Lettra Pearl White and French Paper Co.’s Speckletone series. Beautiful design and printing.

Printed on white Stonehenge paper with deckle edges, the posters range in size from 16.75 x 20.75 ($100) to 22 x 26 ($250). Each pattern was printed in a limited edition of 10.
