The Slide-Pop Mechanism - 60-Second Fold of the Week (Video)
This week's episode brings a fun little mechanism called the Slide-Pop from Structural Graphics. It creates a wonderful element of surprise with the smooth slide of a pull tab. The sample was produced for SEPRACOR for their Lunesta product, and features a message change in a window and a special dimensional surprise when it slides open.
This mechanism can be integrated into many other formats, in many ways. Even better, see for yourself by requesting samples here.
