Asymmetrical Accordion Mailer with Seasonal Die Cuts: 60-Second Fold of the Week
The mailer is designed to promote year-round activities at the resort, so z2 created a clever Asymmetrical Accordion format with swinger die cuts that stack together when closed, and reveal seasonal information when opened. Printed by Meridian and inserted into clear envelopes for added impact in the mail, we think you'll love this week's super-cool solution.
