This week a little slower than usual at the Edition One studios but we didn’t let that deter us from making great things like this video about our hot foil-stamping services. We definitely recommend foil-stamping because it makes for a really nice, polished finish to your hard cover books. Our stock colors are silver (shiny or dull), gold, red, black, and white. We can also do a “blind” stamp (no foil) for a simple yet stately debossed look. Watch the video now for more information:
We also sent out a couple neat hard cover orders. One of which we were happy to reprint for the San Francisco-based BAR Architects that features a front, black foil-stamp and our dark gray linen book cloth.
Our new Facebook page has been steadily gaining fans (are you one yet?) and we’ve been rewarding them with cool videos, links to our clients’ blogs, and photos.
Finally, the author of this post (Charlotte) sent out a big hello to our mailing list contacts. If you’d like to stay in the loop via email, sign up for our newsletter by clicking right here.

A sequel to our friends over at Pixar’s soft cover book from early last year, Round Robin 2 features new illustrations by Daniela Strijleva, Katy Wu, and Jennifer C. Chang based on the word game of the same name. The book has foil stamping on the front and an image printed on the inside of the art paper cover. Be sure to check out the Round Robin blog for more information!
This book features the beautiful black and white photography of Richard Snodgrass and his investigation of various kitchen gadgets. The book was foil stamped on the front and spine and showcased a 6×6 (a first for us!) photograph inset on the front.
For this hard cover, we were requested to use a thinner board for the covers. Although constructed in the same way, these more flexible covers have an entirely different character to them. The book also features foil stamping on the front and spine. You can read and see more of this project at the author Paul Soulellis’ blog right here.
