Interlocking Sculptural Mailer - 60-Second Fold of the Week
This week's spotlight is on a "format" not a folding style — because that's how we do things at Foldfactory. You just never know what's in store for you! From our friends at Corporate Press in Lanham, Md., comes a really interesting format that ships entirely flat, and shifts into a sculptural and engaging self-standing piece.
The format was produced for The Association for Manufacturing Technology for their IMTS Conference, and it consists of four diecut pieces that lock together into a truly unique configuration that reveals and hides content. So. Totally. Cool. Enjoy!
Trish Witkowski shares her super-cool folding samples and helpful production tips. View the “60-second Super-cool Fold of the Week” archive at www.foldfactory.com.
