What is the Painted Edges process?

Painted Edges process is when colour is applied around the edges of your business card. It is a technical process, exclusively handmade.

Which colours can I use for the Painted Edges technique of my business card?

You may choose a matt colour from our 40 colour pallet. Furthermore, we may also create a specific colour especially for you. Finally, you may choose a colour from the Premium colours we use: metallic, fluo or iridescent colours.

Do you use metallic shiny colours?

Of course we do! We have a wide range in our metallic, fluo and iridescent colour pallet with impressive and fancy colours to create shimmering highlights on all your crafts.

Can my artwork match the colour of the Painted Edges?

Yes, we can certainly create a specific colour especially for you. Although, this is a custom process and we cannot guarantee a 100% colour match.

Can you apply bright colours on dark paper?

Yes, we can apply light, bright and shiny colours on the edges of your business card, even when the paper’s colour is dark.

How thick should be the paper to apply the Painted Edges technique?

We recommend Painted Edges technique for our duplex and triplex business cards, which have two or three layers of paper and thus the result is more impactful. These are double or triple thick business cards and the result will be astonishing since the edges will be thick enough.

Can this technique be combined with Die Cut, Rounded Corners or Die Stamping?

Unfortunately, these techniques cannot be combined with Painted Edges technique. We have high-quality standards and our experience has proved that the above mentioned techniques interfere with the quality of the final result. For example, Die Cut and Rounded Corners usually diminish the cleanliness of the card around the edges.

Can you give me some general advice?

When painting card’s edges with bright and bold colours, the result is more visible. If you want to paint card’s edges and you choose a colour that is close to the trimming area of your card, then your card will appear to be printed in a “coloured” paper· however, you can choose a colour different than the paper’s colour, increasing the contrast between the edge colour and the surface of your business card. No matter what colour you choose, your business card will be unique.

How exactly do you apply the Painted Edges colour process?

The Painted Edges process is a handmade technique. Paying attention to the details is what makes our products outstanding. We follow many steps to get the perfect result. We have made many tests and developed our methods to deliver a guaranteed result. Unfortunately, we cannot share more details on how-to.
