2021 – what a year, pushing through the pandemic and like everyone else doing our best to stay on top of things. Stay on top we did!
We entered only one product into the print awards in 2021 and we’re so happy to get some results, receiving GOLD in the 38th annual Printing Industry Creativity Awards (Victoria) and Silver overall in the National Print Awards with our entry Flibustier Certificate of Authenticity!
This piece is such a beauty, produced on Ball and Doggett 450gsm deep black Keaykolour – it’s a multi pass gold winner. On the front we begin with a black foil (Kurz) stipple background, followed by metallic gold designs. Flibustier is a jeweler so what better product to apply than an KURZ security Hologram to the product. we chose to make this piece secure and the skull was the perfect part to bring this idea to life. We embellished the skull with the hologram and to further enhance – embossed it as well. On the back, more of the glossy gold foil which also included a QR Code for all the additional required information for the business.
We love it- and again, Flibustier is a long time client with 15,000 units of these certificates made since 2020.
Jean Julien is a tattooist from Saint-Laurent-des-Arbres, France, he made contact with us during Covid 2020 to produce some single colour eye catching cards. Supplied with his standard logo, we produced his new cards on the Ball and Doggett 450gsm Keaykolour Deep Black, a beautiful weight card to work with. Stamped with gold foil front and back on our antique heidelberg platens and finished with a scalloped corner formecut for a pleasing aesthetic. A true supporter of Matte Gold Melbourne, Jean Julien has returned many times to reprint his cards- the most recent order we changed up the colour for a Kurz Copper shade instead of the gold foilstamping on previous runs.
Trusting a company on the other side of the globe with your vision (and money) can seem daunting but the proof is in our clientele. Producing cards for clients in so many different countries has awarded us the trust for clients worldwide.
Jean Julien’s private studio is in Saint-Laurent-des-Arbres Franec and he can be contacted via the following links

Greg from Flibustier Jewellery approached us via Instagram to help create a unique certificate of authenticity for his flagship store located in Paris France. Armed with a great design concept, we were able to tweak his certificates into something very cool. Flibustier base their Jewellery on being a pirate, a high-end pirate though!
We produced 5000 certificates on a Ball and Doggett 450 gsm Deep Black KeayKolour card.
Starting with a gloss black stipple background, we then applied a metallic gold foil on both sides (incorporating a QR code) the skull was foiled with a Kurz Gold Valid Security Hologram which we also embossed for effect and finished off with a shapecut.
World class results – made in Melbourne and shipping to the world.
