The Operative is a unique card inspired by the look of an official, mid-century, typewritten document that may be found on the desk of your local government agency. Like the Colophon Card, this layout allows for a more freeform, sentence like approach to a business card. Important information like your name, business name and contact info are boldened for readability and a touch of style. The card is typeset in a wonderful humanist monospaced typeface called Inconsolata - ubiquitous within the programming community. A ridged recycled kraft chipboard is used to bring the entire theme together.
- U.S. Standard size (2" x 3.5")
- Thick recycled kraft chipboard
- Black ink
- Hand printed on a 1945 Chandler & Price Letterpress

Adding a Logo?
Our calling cards at Hoban Cards are purposely designed to be minimal and use beautiful typography as their main design element. However, we also help customers customize these templates further with added logos, specific typefaces, or fully custom layouts. If you have your own layout, or need us to help you design one, get in touch for a quote.

Why Letterpress Printing?
Put simply, letterpress printing is a form of relief printing, where the text or image is on a raised surface, similar to a rubber stamp. Ink is applied to the raised surface and then paper is pressed directly against it to transfer the text/image. Learn More.

We create a unique letterpress plate for your order and keep it in our shop in case you want to reorder in the future. Reorders receive 20% off the original price.
