Deckle Edge


Deckle edge refers to the feathery, uneven edge on paper, traditionally a byproduct of the papermaking process.

Today, it's often artificially produced to give a nostalgic, handcrafted aesthetic to Books, Invitations, or fine art prints.

While it adds a unique touch to the printed material, it's important to note that text and critical elements should maintain a safe distance from a deckle edge to ensure readability and visual balance.
