Edge Coloring

May 9, 2014

Wintry Press is working on a few jobs with edge coloring added. This basically requires printing business cards or any type of card, then coloring all 4 edges of the card to a specific color-PMS color match or otherwise. The process is very interesting, and when properly (beautifully) designed as these cards were, the effect can be striking, adding color to the edges to match some of the colors printed on the face of the card. The paper should be thick, so the color shows, but that can also be part of the design choice-subtle color on the edges or perhaps mounting 1 together 2 thick pieces of cover stock to bring a lot of attention to those colored edges. As always, in the hands of a good designer the possibilities can be endless!
