High Five Friday!

Here is a card from a range of greeting cards called Thefty from London based card publisher Roger La Borde. This is a 4pp card printed offset litho in two colours and I thought it was important to write about this card as it has been further embellished with the addition of thermography on the front of the card.
The size of the card is 147x100mm, which is what Roger la Borde describe as their Petite size. the card is printed on Shiro Echo, Bright White 300gsm, which is 100% recycled and has FSC Mix accreditation.
I wasn't able to catch the thermography in both colours (black and green) against the light with my unsophisticated camera equipment (!) so I've shot the thermo'd areas individually, as you can see below:
I have written about thermography before, so if you are interested to find out about the process, please click on the following link:

The cards are published by Roger la Borde and the design is by Helena Maratheftis.

The cards are printed by Lion House Press who are in West London and the thermography is by Graphite Creative who are based in St Albans.
