Super Storage! Self-Mailing Pocket Folder Design: 60-Second Fold of the Week
From the Foldfactory Super-Cool Sample Archives, this week's selection demonstrates an all-in-one solution for mailing documents and promotional material. This full-color self-mailing pocket folder format for Legg Mason offers two interior pockets and a flap with a zip strip for a tight seal and easy opening.
Most impressive is the fact that this entire solution is comprised of only one piece that folds down and glues into final format. It's great for offset or digital presses with larger sheet sizes — and Trish will take it apart to show you how it's made!
