CLIENT LOVE Branding for My Besties

I am soooo excited to share this recent project (prematurely, as we are still working on the website!) that I created for two of my BFFs and their new company, A2 Communications Group. It is always a challenge but with great reward when you embark on creating a brand for a friend, more so for two! So I was especially thrilled with the results of this collaboration thus far…

The business card is gold foil stamped onto museum board — normally used for framing and matting. It’s super duper thick and makes such a strong statement with a lot of punch. I designed the rest of the stationery system which we have yet to get printed, but I’ll be sure to share!

All in all, it made me so incredibly happy to hear the pure joy in my friends’ voices when they received the cards, and the pride when they pass them out to clients. It’s so gratifying that what I do can give that to them!

  1. Could you tell me how you print the gold foil? Do you get it professionally printed or do it yourself? I’ve been searching but can’t seem to find the answer. Thanks!


    1. Hi Kelsey, yes these were professionally done by Czar Press here in Orange County, CA. You would need to get a die made from your art to press the foil into the paper. The die is reusable for future runs.
      Thanks for the question!

  2. When I saw these go up on Instagram I was dying. I LOVE THEM, perfect stock selection, and I just adore the fonts, spacing and use of gold foil. So chic! GREAT WORK!
