One-Piece Dark and Dimensional Invitation: 60-Second Fold of the Week
The engineering and production behind this week's solution are truly brilliant. Designed by the in-house agency Four75 at USPS and printed by Linemark, this invitation was created to celebrate the First Day of Issue Ceremony for a new Disney Villains Stamp featuring 10 classic Disney villains. The simple square format opens to a two-panel reveal that has tremendous depth and 4 layers of dimension.
Trish will deconstruct the sample and show how the piece surprisingly unfolds into one large piece that is printed only on one side! We think this idea offers tremendous possibilities for lots of other marketing scenarios. You won't want to miss this week's episode!
