Here’s what’s great about this idea:
- It’s a machinable format that can act like a brochure, or like a booklet with one simple flip — and it doesn’t affect the production cost or difficulty at all.
- You can get a “booklet-style” brochure without the binding, just by looking at this classic format a little differently.
I hope this week's great idea makes you look at all of your "go-to" folds a little differently. Thanks for watching.
