Boarderline Classic Cards Limited are a UK based manufacturer, situated just to the east of central London.
Originally established as a sole trader in 1993 by Mike Vowles, but with growing demand and expansion we became a Limited company in 2008.
In 1985 Mike Vowles gained his Gilding apprenticeship at Wiggins Teape Stationery Limited (now Antalis McNaughton Limited) being trained in this art by Master Gilder Terry Lewis.
Terry began Gilding 34 years ago, also at Wiggins Teape. Terry was shown this skill completely by hand, a technique dating back many many years - no machinery was used in the beginning. We still Gild by hand to this day, along with a modern twist, as per the technique orignally used.
With the ever changing world requiring new products and services we have been moving into a very bespoke arena. Producing finishing touches to some of the worlds finest designers, fashion industries, the world of sport and many prestigious companies.
This highly skilled technique is all hand prepared and hand foiled, it is an old english art form and one that we are proud to continue using.
Whilst we were originally trained in the art of Gilt edging printers invitation cards, we have moved on and can offer more specialised services catering for our customers needs.
These include the Gilding of books, paper, envelopes, wood and also perspex.
Materials used are from 100gsm paper all the way upto 25mm blocks.
Mike the owner of the company has always believed in giving our customers a personal touch and continues to provide a conscientious, confidential service with great integrity.
