GUILDED EDGE PAINTING Image

EDGE GUILDING & INKING

One of our most popular finishing techniques is gilding. This highly specialised process involves applying a metallic foil to the edge of your stationery to add that extra level of elegance.

Step 1 – Place your invitations to be gilded in a clamp (Ensure the grip is nice and tight!)

Step 2 – Sand down the surface of the area to be gilded (If you are gilding invitations with a bevelled edge, ensure your invitations are in the clamp at an angle)

Step 3 – Ensure the surface is as smooth as possible

Step 4 – Apply adhesive to the smooth, sanded surface of the invitations

Step 5 – Select the foil you would like to gild the edges of your invitations with

Step 6 – Lay this piece of foil over the top of the invitations so it sticks to the tacky adhesive

Step 7 – Using a heated roller, apply heat and pressure to roll the foil smoothly onto the edges of the invitations

Step 8 – Peel away the foil transfer from the invitations

Step 9 – Et Voila! Your beautiful gold gilded invitations!


If you would prefer a slightly different colour we would recommend having your cards ink edged. This is a very similar process using ink instead of metallic foil. To ensure a nice deep, rich colour on the edges of your invitations we use our luxurious die stamping inks. Die stamping ink contains up to 80% colour pigment to help give your invitations that extra WOW factor.


Lauren Skorsis has one laser cutter, with a bed size of 812mm x 508mm (32" x 20").
