Choice of color for edge painting
There is no restriction on color which can be used. You can opt for any CMYK color, we also support florescent color as well. Few customers also go with combination of color, they opt for combination of different color for different edges. Frankly, not in all design it looks good. Till you don't have very good reason you should stay away from idea of different color on all edges.
Florescent color add to the spark in your card. Many customer also miss that while choosing for florescent color your card design surface may lose focus. As people will be more interested in edges only. Color should be not too bright and too flashy it should be such that it merge with the business card design.
Gradient color on edges
We also offer you with option of gradient color. You have option to select from gradient colors available with us or we can prepare gradient color as your choice. Cost will go up as this will require efforts for preparing the desired color. Gradient color choice suits well for designers, photographers, artist etc.
All printed edge business cards are painted with the help of the mechanized process. We don't involve shabby spill over painter doing job. Process make sure that you get exact color as color proofing and matching is done prior to paint job. It also make sure their are no spoil cards and color doesn't get spill over on the surface of the visiting cards.
Though there is no specified minimum thickness for painting job. But to make sure that the painted edge is visible it is always better to choose paper thickness of more than 300 gsm. Lesser than 300 gsm stock will also be painted but they won't be that appealing.
