Screen Print Edge Staining

Screen print edge staining is a distinctive finishing option offered by American Print & Bindery. It enhances the edges of printed materials with vibrant and durable screen-printed ink. This process involves applying ink directly onto the edges of books, journals, or special editions, creating a bold, eye-catching border that complements the overall design.

How Does it Work?

In the screen print edge staining process, printed materials' edges are meticulously trimmed and prepared for ink application. Specialized screens transfer vibrant designs or colors with precision, creating crisp edges. After drying and curing, excess ink is removed, leaving durable, vibrant finishes.

What are the Benefits?

  1. Enhanced Aesthetics: Add vibrant colors and bold designs to the edges of printed materials, enhancing their overall visual appeal and making them stand out.

  2. Customization: Allow for customization to suit specific branding or design preferences.

  3. Durability: Screen-printed ink is durable and long-lasting, ensuring that the vibrant colors and designs on the edges remain intact even with regular use.

  4. Branding Opportunity: Provide an additional opportunity to incorporate branding elements or unique designs onto printed materials.

  5. Professional Appearance: The crisp and precise application of screen-printed ink creates a polished and professional look for printed materials.

  1. Special Editions: Create limited-edition or commemorative printed materials, such as collector's items, anniversary editions, or exclusive releases.

  2. Brand Promotion: Businesses can utilize screen print edge staining to incorporate branding elements, such as logos or brand colors, onto the edges of marketing materials, promotional items, or corporate gifts.
