Design of the Month: June 2016



Our June design of the month comes from Alyssa Auerbach of AMDesigns. Alyssa has sent us some stellar designs over years and we were “nspired” by her soothing card design for Nspire Today, a licensed professional counselor, specializing in addiction.

We spoke with Alyssa about her design style and process, her first foray into printing with laser cutting, and what makes her stand out among other graphic designers.

Unique & Utilitarian Yupo


There are some people out there with dirty jobs. Jobs in construction, art, architecture, engineering or even the auto industry call for business cards that are going to stand the test of time and physical damage. People in these industries are in need of a durable card stronger than our typical paper options.

Paper made from pulp can tear and dissolve in water. Plastic is waterproof and tear proof, but will show the marks of everyday use/damage. So what are our options? Let me introduce to my old and often overlooked friend, Yupo.

Yupo is a synthetic paper, made from polypropylene pellets. That’s right, a paper that won’t harm our trees! It is tear proof, water proof and best of all, 100% recyclable.

Morning Print’s Yupo Paper can be used for a variety of applications, from packaging to print projects. Ink prints super sharp and beautifully bold. And if your cards happen to acquire some dirt, it will easily wipe clean with a damp cloth. Also available for stickers, all in all, this is simply a great card option for any industry.


Yupo Pluses:

Super Smooth             Bright White

100% recyclable         Ink prints extremely sharp on Yupo

Wipes clean                Versatile uses

Will last a lifetime    Waterproof

Tearproof                    Chemical and stain resistant


More information on Yupo can be found on our website.



Embossing vs Debossing, what’s the best option for me

Intrigued, but not exactly sure what embossing or debossing is? Have no fear, Morning Print is here!

Product Feature: Aquarelle Card Stock

As a business that caters to creative professionals, we’re always looking for card stocks that can function as a business card, showing off our customers’ designs while maintaining a professional feel. The trifecta.

We’ve specifically been looking to add textured options to our supply that would be on the same level as our heavier textured stocks, like Heavy Linen. When we found a stock that was thick, textured and held color beautifully, we knew we had to add it as an option for you.

wbs02-2015052721572682Aquarelle, our newest stock option, is a great choice if you’re looking to put your design on a heavier card stock (14 pt) with subtle texture found on both sides of the card. Aquarelle is similar to our Scotland stock in that it provides your business card with an extra visual interest without being too distracting, but with an added thickness that’s hard to find on textured card stocks.
