PaperSpecsGallery.com Presents: DataGraphic Moving Announcement (Video)
When the time arose for 82-year-old printing company DataGraphic to move to larger digs, it teamed with designers Claudia de Almeida and Margaret Swart of o Banquinho to create a direct mail piece that would help spread the word.
The subtle, fine blue-foil lines sprinkled throughout are just enough to capture your attention without distracting from the overall message. Paired with the Neenah Classic Crest Stipple finished cover and high-impact fluorescent palette, the piece has an incredible look and feel.
What's really rave-worthy, though, is the way this mail piece unfolds to an astonishing 28-inches! Talk about visual impact! A small diecut circle on the outside front cover teases what is to come, but outer panels that accordion fold inward on both sides of the center spread is not what you might expect.
When fully opened, it unveils an intriguing infographic that takes you time-hopping through the family-owned printing company’s history, from its start in 1927 to its exciting announcement of an upgrade to a 30,000-square-foot facility.

Kudos to DataGraphic not only on its big upgrade, but on the big way the company chose to share its news. You almost might call it...historic.
