Connect with Donors via Tear-ific Open Gate: 60-Second Fold of the Week
This cost-efficient and impactful fundraising piece is a wonderful mix of form and function, with nostalgic photos, a heartfelt personal message, and an integrated response card.
- It's a creative format that does not require a diecut, and is sized for standard outer and return envelopes.
- The response card is integrated into the brochure and easy to remove. Fewer loose components to send.
- Great production details, with tight gap in the gate and perfect crossovers.
