You’ve got the front and rear of your business card designed and printed. Now how about the sides? Edge painting, also referred to as edge colouring or colour edging, is a great addition to really make your business card stand out.

Image Now Films. These cards may also be Triplex (it’s tough to tell 100% by the photo), three different coloured layers of stock, judging by the white and black edges still being visible. A slightly different effect, which can be used instead of, or in conjunction with edge coloring. Either way, they deserved a mention.)

What do you think about edge painting?
Some printers/binders offer a limited range of colour choices, whiles others will do it in the Pantone of your choice (for an additional cost of course). Depending on which way you go you’re looking at a few hundred dollars per thousand cards to add edge colouring to your business cards.
