Farbschnitt is the German word for edge painting and it literally translates as ‘colour cut’. Edge painting is generally the application of colour to the edge of business cards, invitations, books etc. it is like guilding in a way. Edge painting is very special and not overly common, in fact it sets your business cards far apart from the competition. Interestingly enough, we find that most of our clients that request edge painting are in fact Graphic Designers themselves. More recently we are receiving many more requests for edge painting whether it be business cards, wedding invitations or even postcards, so here are a few examples of the work we have printed in our loudbang design/ kikisoso studio in Cologne.
Thanks for reading my post. Do you like edge painting and when do you find it works best? I would love to hear your comments.
