Fold of the Week: 3-Step Reveal Mailer
The format really serves the "3-Steps to get you here" concept of the mailer, and I can see so many other subjects and verticals that could work well in this design.
What’s great about this week’s fold:
- The panel configuration of the Rolling Reveal Folder really slows the viewer down and gives them a reason to lift the panels and take a look.
- Because the panels are in a row, instinctively the viewer opens them in order from left to right, which can really help with communicating your message.
