Striking and Simple Pop-Up Business Card: 60-Second Fold of the Week
In the nearly eight-year history of Fold of the Week, only two folded business cards have ever made it to the show (episodes 211 and 286, if you're curious). And today makes three! Coming to us all the way from Jerusalem, this week's super-cool spotlight shines on a simple idea for a dimensional business card.
Designed by Joshua Goodman, a clever diecut invites you to open the left side of the card to reveal a curved pop-up panel. We think this idea is great both in miniature, and also enlarged as a brochure. You won't want to miss this week's inspired idea!
