Smart Broadside Self-Mailer Idea - 60-Second Fold of the Week
How about a simple breath of fresh air this week? We think you'll love this little tweak to a classic eight-page broadside format. Designed and produced by Suttle-Straus of Waunakee, Wis., this self-mailing promotional piece takes on a classic "quarter fold" eight-page format — but there's a twist on the inside.
A slim, inverted short fold was designed to create a focal point that adds lots of visual impact, while not impacting the budget or production at all. We hope you like this week's budget-friendly folded solution as much as we do!
