The Fabulously Frugal Waterfall Double Parallel Brochure
Don't you just love a low-budget idea? We do, too. This week's super-cool spotlight shines on a simple solution for an everyday favorite - the Double Parallel fold. Designed by the gang at PLAY Creative in Lincoln, Neb., for client Credit Union of America, this simple diecut tapers to create a dimensional (and low-budget!) neighborhood.
Even better, the team at Regal Printing in Omaha machine-folded it for maximum efficiency! It's a must-see.
