Stitched Stepped Accordion Composite Brochure: 60-Second Fold of the Week (Video)
Sometimes a great stitched and folded brochure idea comes along, and we just can't wait to share it. Produced by V3 Printing of Oxnard, California, for client J. Lohr Vineyards & Wines, this composite format cleverly stitches a four-page, short-trim cover to a six-panel stepped accordion for a lovely and organized stepped map brochure.
The short-trim cover provides a view of the stepped edge, and the stitched-in map creates an easy pull-out map on one side, and organized regional vineyard information on the other. Now, that's smart design!
