"Make It Your Own" Iron Cross Fold - 60-Second Fold of the Week
This week, the spotlight shines on a self-promo piece for Wallace Carlson Printing in Minnetonka, Minn. The piece was produced to show off its UV printing capabilities and amazing ink holdout on uncoated paper. Designed by Maverick Design Group, they took the classic iron cross format and made it their own with powerful imagery and a series of modifications, including a short trim panel, double gate folding and dimensional diecutting tricks. Don't miss it!
