Edge Gilding and Edge Painting is the ultimate in attention to detail.
It is a simple technique with tiny application for powerful impact. Traditionally a book binding technique of adding and edge of gold to books, edge gilding is now available in gold, silver and bronze. Edge gilding is now featured in high end bespoke business cards and elegant corporate invitations.
Edge Painting is a similar application, where a special PMS mix of ink is applied instead of metallic foil. The effect is simply stunning. It adds weight with the heavier stock and can be used in conjunction with other embellishing techniques.
Edge gilding & edge painting are fast becoming the benchmark for bespoke stationery.
