We can Edge Paint either 700 Gram or 1050 Gram Board with an edge painted colour. We have 12 different colours available of special inks imported especially from Japan. Colours include Gold, Silver, Red, Blue, Mustard Yellow, Tea Brown, Fluorescent, Green, Purple and Yellow, Teal, Light Coral to name a few.
The edges of the cards are then hand-painted to create a stunning effect. Again these cards can only be foil printed onto, but what stunners they are!
Please note that printing on this stock is primarily for smaller quantities from 100 – 3000 cards only, and also be aware that the stock and the whole process is expensive so do not expect ‘Vista Print‘ prices. This is a pretty unique and hand-finished process. Duplex and Triplex stock is made to order and this takes up to 7 working days.
As one of the few commercial printers to offer edge painted business cards, you will be stunned and amazed at the effect. On these orders allow up to 15 working days.

- 100, 120, 150, 175, 270 gram

- 1050 gram – Triplex Board
Duplex Boards, as the name suggests are two boards laminated together to create a thickness of the stock. The boards do not need to be the same colours. Therefore, you could have white on one side and a different colour of board on the reverse. We can then print on these using our hot foil printing method, only in a range of either Matt, Gloss or Metallic Colours.
Triplex Board is made up of three 350 gram Boards laminated or sandwiched together, to create a massive 1050 gram weight board ‘Brick Thick’.
You can create a wonderful effect for example, two pieces of Black Board Stock with a Red Board sandwiched in-between for something really special. This can then be printed onto or even debossed on both sides.
