What are painted edge business cards?

Painted-edge business cards are modern and unique. They use bright colors to make a three-dimensional effect that stands out. The edges of the card are painted a different color than the front or back.
This gives it a raised look and feel that draws attention. This style stands out more than plain white paper cards and gives your brand a more sophisticated look.

You can paint the edge any color you want, so you can choose one that fits with the style of your business. Also important is the card's thickness.
Thick cards usually make a better impression, but they cost more than thin cards. Overall, painting the edges makes your card stand out visually and makes it feel different.
People won't forget something they can see and touch.

What colors do you have for painted edge business cards?

We can color the edges just about any color you want!  Here are our most popular colors:  Most Common Colors
Find a Pantone Uncoated color for the edges, and we'll be able to match it exactly.

 Foiled vs painted edge business cards

Business cards with a foiled edge are made by pressing a thin sheet of foil against a printed card at a precise temperature and pressure. The result is the use of metallic or holographic finishes, which give it a durable finish and make even the simplest designs look more interesting.
Foil is also very opaque, which means that if you use it on dark paper, it won't bleed through like paints often do, giving you good results.

Painted-edge business cards use special pigment ink that is painted over printed edges on pre-cut cardstock paper. This creates opaque coverage on all four sides of the cardstock when needed for full decoration effect.
Painted edges are much cheaper than foiling, but they aren't as eye-catching. However, they can still look great with creative design combinations and offer much more flexibility during the printing process.

What are the benefits of a painted edge business card?

Painted edge business cards are business cards that have a solid color painted on the edge of the card, rather than the traditional white edge. Some benefits of painted edge business cards include:
  1. Increased visual appeal: Painted edge business cards can be a visually striking and memorable way to present your company's branding and contact information.
  2. Enhanced durability: The paint on the edges of the card can help to protect the edges from chipping or fraying, which can make the cards more durable and long-lasting.
  3. Increased customization options: Painted edge business cards can be customized with a wide range of colors, which can help to create a unique and cohesive look for your company's branding.

What are some of the best painted edge business cards?

Some of the best painted edge business cards are those that effectively utilize the painted edge as a design element to enhance the overall look and feel of the card. Here are a few examples of painted edge business cards that stand out:
  1. Bright and bold: A bright, bold color on the edges of the card can make a strong visual statement and help the card stand out.

  2. Metallic: Using a metallic paint on the edges of the card can add a touch of luxury and make the card feel more premium.

  3. Coordinated with the design: Using a color on the edges that coordinates with the overall design of the card can create a cohesive look and enhance the overall aesthetic of the card.

Overall, the best painted edge business cards are those that effectively use the painted edge as a design element to enhance the overall look and feel of the card. It is important to choose a color that is consistent with the company's branding and that complements the overall design of the card.

Can I order a Painted Edge Business Card with rounded corners?

Yes, it is possible to order a painted edge business card with rounded corners!
Not only does this design feature add unique flair, but it also helps to make the card more memorable and eye-catching. 

What is the minimum quantity for Painted Edge Business Cards?
