Edge Painting: Ubiquitous Unicorn of Printing

Thursday May 22, 2014

Since the dawn of thick paper stock, printers and designers have looked with wonder at a tall stack of finished cards and mused about how to jazz up that 200# canvas. Edge painting has exploded in popularity in recent years and we can’t wait to see more of it at Evolution Press!

Edge painting is a true pleasure to see. A thick business card with foil or letterpress on the front is begging for a bright painted edge to really set it off. When stacked, they have a bold presence that is undeniable, but the real beauty of edge painting is the subtle pop of color that is evident while holding a single card in your fingers

We thought a good approach this unicorn of the fine printing world is to answer some questions about edge painting.

Q: Can you edge paint other sizes than business cards?

A: Sure, we also edge paint all sizes of Invitations.

Q: Can you match pantone colors with edge painting?

A: Oh yeah. We’ll custom mix your color every time we paint so we can be sure it matches your Pantone color.

Q: What about metalics? Do they look good?

A: Yep, metalics look great too. The ink actually has metal flake in it. It’s got a glittery matte look. But if a mirror-like reflective metallic is what your looking for, you should go with our foil edge guilding services.

Q: Can you edge paint a black business card?
A: Yes. Edge painting gives a really nice opaque look to the color, so the paper stock that’s getting painted can be dark or light.
