Two-Way Angled Gate Poster Mailer - 60-Second Fold of the Week
This week's solution offers both form and function with an exciting choice of format and proportion! Designed by Frederick Yocum for an AIGA Central, Pa., fundraiser event featuring the co-founders of IF STUDIO in NYC, this invitation does double-duty as both a carrier and a poster.
The tall, dramatic cover imagery is slashed on the diagonal - and, when opened, an insert is revealed and the carrier format becomes a poster. Printed on an HP Indigo 7900 digital press by The Standard Group in Pennsylvania, this clever poster invitation is sure to draw a crowd.
