The Amazing Auto Jackknife - 60-Second Fold of the Week
It's always exciting to us to find a format that is not only engaging, but that is also efficient to produce. This self-mailing solution from Information Packaging in Toronto is really fun to open with a tear-off top and a swiveling interior section that opens like a jackknife. However, the real magic is in the production of this creative and dimensional format.
Amazingly, this format is produced entirely by machine — and Trish will tell you how it was done and how much it cost!
