60-second Super-cool Fold of the Week (Video)

Featured Fold: Very Cool Meandering Accordion Brochure

Our next crazy February folded format is an awesome meandering accordion fold from PBM Graphics, an RR Donnelley Company in Durham, NC. This clever accessories brochure for Volkswagen is compact on the outside, and huge on the inside as wide accordion panels stretch out in two rows down to show off all of the interesting ways you can accessorize your VW. This creative, fun and engaging format will “get the wheels turning” in your brain!

    The total length for this brochure is 33 inches . Very nice concept and important to remenber the length of each page so the folds work.

    I really enjoy these posts and view them every chance I get, but there’s one thing I’ve been wondering . . . Would it be possible to make note of the qty printed and unit cost at some point in the presentation? It would really help us production folk manage expectations with our Marketing departments.
    Thanks and keep up the good work!
