Aloha! Shaped Two-Way Gate Mailer: 60-Second Fold of the Week
Designed by the in-house team at Midland National Life Insurance Company and artfully produced by ENPOINTE, this piece is an invitation for agents to earn themselves a trip to Maui to attend a convention. When opened, there's an insert and a gorgeous shape and feel that exactly mimics a hibiscus flower. It's simply fabulous.
