Die-Cut Dot Pattern for Sleeve Brochures: Fold of the Week
What’s super-cool about this week’s idea:
- The practical side of me loves that the die cut circles on the samples really aren’t adding much to the cost of the project, because you are already die-cutting the sleeve. Die-cutting as a finishing process is not additive in this case.
- This is a great example of visual and physical interaction between two printed components. If you’d like to see more Sleeve Brochure ideas, check out this post from the Foldfactory Blog.
