Our History
About Us

Exclusive Bordering Company, a division of Harry Otto Printing Company, originated in Chicago in the 1940's. We became noted for our unique applications of hand borders and hand deckled edges to finely printed and engraved stationery and announcements. Now in our 8th decade of family ownership we have expanded our offerings to include not only borders and deckles but also bevel edges as well as colored bevel edges, contoured bevels, laminating (layering), faux gilding, edge coloring, glitter borders, ParchTiquing, envelope lining, marbling, and letterpress printing.

Hand bordering, deckle edging and all of our hand finishing services add that extra impact that often turns an ordinary piece into a real profit maker. Customers want that "something extra" that is distinct for their printed or engraved products so they will be noticed and stand above the others. We provide you with a finish that will be the envy of your competition.

We invite you to look at our samples throughout the website. Notice the detail and variety. It's obvious why only the finest stationers choose "Exclusive Bordering" for their hand finishing services. At Exclusive Bordering Company, craftsmanship and pride are not just ideals. They are absolutes!

Our quick, reliable and high quality service is what makes us stand out. We go out of our way to make sure your experience working with us is smooth, simple and quick. We will be happy to work with you no matter how small or large your order is. Email us or give us a call at 800-543-8172 for your personalized pricing information.
