Painted Edges

Printing Resource Center There are many types of edge treatments that can be applied to your book. A popular choice is painting a solid color or applying gilt—— a metallic color typically gold or silver—— on the paper’s edge.

Edge coloring is a great way to catch the eye of a potential customer and our artisans can accommodate any color of your choice to make it pop.

Important Consideration

Adding painted edges to your project will increase your production timeline by 3-5 days. Before you can worry about that, you’ll need to make sure your book has a thickness of at least 8mm to achieve the optimal apperance.
