Asymmetrical Magazine Wrap with Locked Cover: 60-Second Fold of the Week
This week's format offers a stylish way to deliver magazines, catalogs, brochures, and invitations. The featured asymmetrical wrap from Iggesund arrives wrapped around Issue 59 of their "Inspire" magazine.
Soft-touch laminate, spot UV gloss, and muted colors work together with the asymmetrical, angled panels that lock on the cover. Trish will share the special production trick that holds them in place without glue or tabs. Enjoy!
