Sometimes even the simplest of folding styles can showcase the most exciting and creative solutions. This week's featured format uses a simple and engaging disk-and-eyelet technique on the classic four-Page Standard format.
Designed by Theresa Segreti of the American Visionary Art Museum for their Celestial Gala, this dramatic invitation invites the recipient to give it a whirl. Produced by Peabody Press with some laser-cut magic at K&W Finishing, we think you'll love this week's exciting idea!
