Letterpress stationery + edge painting = love

We love edge painting (by hand) our letterpress printing! Especially in really bright, vibrant colors. Once you start looking at enough edge painting pieces, paper just looks naked without its edges all gussied up in color. The design and color dreaming of this job comes from Pickett’s Press. Kate @ Pickett’s Press was sweet enough to send one her fabulous ribboned boxes too, so we can see how great a presentation she’s created for the notecards and stationery that we letterpress printed for her.

  1. I’m really interested in getting my cards redone with edge printing, I’m browsing around for the perfect printer and I happened to come across your site. I see that your cards are beautifully well done.
    I’ve had some few bad experiences with printers, so this time I need to know exactly what I’m getting and what I’m paying for. Last time I did edge painting, the printer bled all over the inside edges of my cards and told me that this is common problem for all printers and something that cannot be avoided. Anyways, I want to make sure that this doesn’t happen again and how it can be avoided.
    Also, I need to know what is the price difference between square and round edging and using 2 colors instead of one. How many mm is it for the thickest paper provided?
    thank you for your time
