The Goal is to make a personal Seal for me. It can play on my initials EMB and/or the similarity on the initials but it doesn't have to as that is very limiting. I want something original, iconic, memorable, modern and interesting. And it should relate to me!
Note the card is NOT going to be offset print. This will be an expensive application-intensive card. I would like to utilize duplex/triplex and/or museum board the paper. Then one side I would like to laser engrave / cut, and the other side will use letter-press, intaglio, and/or foil -- these are up to the designer.
One possibility is to design the logo such that the laser can fire through the card allowing the logo to be read from either side. The issue I had with my attempts to make a logo was to keep the structural integrity of the card. Another option is to laser emboss or deboss one side and then intaglio or letterpress the other side. See some examples of techniques attached.
This is important information as it affects both the logo design and the card design. Repeat: it will NOT be laser-printed.

I'm particularly keen on recreating the laser and triplex technique used in these cards: https://methodandmadness.co/collect…ducts/lyza
