Gilt Edging, which is sometimes called Edge Gilding, is a process of applying a foil to the edges of your invitations, business cards, letterheads, stationery or books. We can also use a selection of inks to paint a non metallic colour if your project requires it.
Typically we offer this service in gold or silver foil, although our experts can foil any colour from our stock range. The addition of gilt edging adds an especially luxurious finish to the project.
A gilt edge is the finishing touch on your printed masterpiece. There’s no limit to the thickness of card either, the thicker it is, the more effective it is!
The process of gilt or colour edging is relatively simple, but requires a huge amount of skill and experience.
The card is clamped tightly, the edges sanded down until they are completely smooth and the foil or ink colour is applied to the edges. Invitations can have a bevelled edge, and any invites that are larger than A6 size can also have rounded corners.
Adding gilt edged metallic or satin foil to your business cards gives the ultimate finish to your first business impression.
Whether foiled or printed for the main elements of the invitation, adding a metallic or matt colour gilt edging can make them extra special.
We can gilt edge in many colours other than metallics, to achieve the right match for your artwork.
