Getting these printed with a friend on a letterpress. The logo will just be imprinted, while the info on the reverse will be pressed and inked. The type on the reverse is Bodoni Egyptian Pro Regular Italic.

Looks awesome! A few thoughts...
I'd do a bunch of pressure tests to make sure that the corners of the die don't crease through to the other side. Had to do this with old-school Threadless business cards that had dual-side letterpressing. It took a few tries to find the right mix of paper weight & pressure. You may also wanna check out high-rag paper as it may give the logo a nice soft feel – and those papers tend to go higher in # than smooth or ultra-smooth papers.
Also, if you guys wanted to conserve cash, you could get only the front letterpressed and run of a lot to keep the costs down and have the printer hold onto them. Then, when you hire more people you can just offset or digital print the small info text on the back and trim the sheets from there.
And now I'll stop being a print nerd.
oh! one other idea (and then I'm done, I swear) is to print the cards using a non-bright white (ie. the slightest cream tint) and then press the logo in white. it won't be super noticeable, but the slight contrast between the cream and the white would be pretty hot IMHO.
@Daniel: hon, I don't do dairy, but these I looove! @Jeffrey: can you please print my cards :)
I'm looking forward to this company, nice work here.
