Trend Report: Painted Edge

invitations11.18-5bI have a mega crush on Cotton Paperie, a custom letterpress shop in Texas. They do everything from foil stamping to diecutting but what I’m going to talk about today is edge painting. The ultimate in cool printing techniques. If you have a thicker wedding invitation, you are going to want a painted edge after seeing these beauties.

The way to go if you want to edge paint your cards is simply with acrylic paint and a foam brush. Stack up your cards in a neat pile and weigh them down with something. Then paint on the edges of the cards. Make sure to cover the top of the pile with a scrap of paper or you’ll be sacrificing the top card from each pile. Paint will inevitably get on that card.

Have fun!
