Tri-Fold Self-Mailer with Pasted, Tabbed Insert: 60-Second Fold of the Week
There's nothing like a simple, practical solution that you can use for lots and lots of different applications. This week's spotlight is on a smart format idea from Delta Airlines for their SkyMiles American Express card. The base format is a tri-fold, which is a natural fit for self-mailing situations, however, they added a tabbed four-pager that was pasted into the center panel for a paginated feel and added organization.
We think you'll see lots of creative potential in this week's episode!
