    Been having some fun with my personal branding. I drew the crest originally to be the design on my data CD/DVD cases that my clients would receive with their final files.

    Gorgeous! I like that man w/ top hat and monocle. How did the printer make the ink goes from bright magenta to burgundy?

    Thanks all!
    @Inka: I hand drew the crest, but the letterpress simulation and photo zoom/focus effect are courtesy of Photoshop :) I was attempting to give myself a visual of what a foil would be like instead of ink.

    You got me fooled! You've achieved real letterpress effect there. For foil, I think maybe you need to add some contrast highlight (overblown light area on the crest). Hey, you're the master here ;-)

    @Brandon: Good to know! That piece is strategically placed there to help people mentally with pronouncing my last name! (9'er not neener)

    @Inka, in real letterpress this is possible by using a split fountain.

    @Erica, that's good to know. I have yet to see an actual letterpress piece done that way. Have you seen/done it? I've used the old-fashion letterpress that used round metal ink plate.

    @Inka Mathew Sorry to get back to you so late, but the split-fountain technique can be done on flatbed, cylinder presses (like Vandercooks) and not on platen presses (which is the one you describe with the round metal ink disc). I have seen it done, yes.
