We wanted our card to be black with white ink on it. We all know this demands silkscreen but white print normally looks so bad that we always shed tears when we get the prints. We also wanted it to be thick and with lime green—the second color of our identity.
Using such a very light typeface we needed a top-notch silkscreener. We struggled with several providers and finally found one in Switzerland that did the job perfectly. The next problem was to get lime green on black. Finally, we decided to make a triplex (three papers glued together) giving us the thickness we were looking for. Glued papers can easily look amateur with all the weird shapes that paper with glue can yield, but Lorenz did a brilliant job: perfect white, perfectly defined UV, overall small type on an amazing triplex card that refuses to bend over itself.
