    I am looking for a recommendation on either of these options, in order of preference ūüôā :

    1.  Someone who can edge cards with foil or silver/gold leaf

    2.  Tips on how to do it

    I’ve tried silver leaf and am having trouble finding the right adhesive. ¬†Size, which is typically used with leaf, didn’t stick, and neither did a spray adhesive I had laying around. ¬†I like Otto Printing’s silver edging, but it isn’t as reflective as I’d like to use for this project. ¬†I really do want a true silver look.¬†

    Thanks!

    I use¬†Hodgins Engraving in Batavia, New York. They have both gold and silver foil, and it’s super shiny. There’s also a helpful site called Finisher Finder that allows you to search for people who do things like gilding, laser cutting, thermography, etc.

    Thanks so much! ¬†I did a look through Finish Finder (great resource!) but didn’t have much luck. ¬†I am really happy to know about Hodgins though. ¬†Many thanks!

    Hi Bianca, Did you end up using Hodgins? I’m looking to outsource foil edging and can’t find any local shops. Any tips would be great!!

    Hi Cara,

    I did use Hodgins. ¬†Perhaps Kseniya has better luck with them, but my project was a disaster. ¬†I’ve not found anyone else who can do it though!

    Sorry to hear it was a disaster! I’ll let you know if I find anyone.
