A few holiday seasons ago we thought it would be fun to show off our printing and finishing prowess while treating our clients with a unique stocking stuffer. Bugiardo, which is Italian for “liar,” is a dice game that relies on its participants’ ability to bluff. The game pieces consist of a pair of dice, a collapsible dice cup and individually colored, circular tabs, which represent the “lives” of the players. Utilizing a mix of letterpress, offset lithography, foil stamping and die cut finishing, we were able to demonstrate a range of finishing techniques in a high quality yet whimsical fashion.
