Each layer is 250gsm making the over all weight 750gsm, double the thickness of standard cards! They are then block embossed in matt white and gloss back to create a slick contrast to the grey card.”

    Yum. Looks like a macaroon with hot pink filling…

    This gives me an idea for any food-related identity projects I might take on in the future. 😉

    Does anyone happen to know a rough ball park figure for having that edge painting feature added?

    kbehmo,

    It’s a triplexed card, so there’s a pink sheet sandwiched between the other two. As far as color edging goes, I’ve gotten estimates for around $200 from a couple local letterpress shops.

    @kbehmo
    I assume it’s not cheap, but that’s not edge painting.

    I found out that the technique is called “triplex”
    and certain letterpress print shops can do it.. just google triplex and you should be able to find a couple print shops..

    If you’re looking for other examples on our site check the “lamination” category: http://lovelystationery.com/category/lamination/

    It’s another term used for this technique and lumps duplex, triplex, etc, into one area.
