Gilding the Edges

Applying gold leaf to the edges of paper is not something that I ever imagined I’d be doing. It’s a slow and finicky process, which suggests that I should have counted on doing it at some point, since I tend to gravitate toward that sort of thing. It’s worth the time it takes once you have the finished product in hand, though.

These cards are a thick 220 lb cotton cardstock that were letterpress printed prior to having the edges gilded.
