Fold of the Week: Out of This World 3D Creativity
Here’s what’s great about it:
- This is an easy way to add dimension using a simple die cut strategy. With proper production planning, this approach won’t get in the way of machine production, either.
- This technique isn’t just for accordions. You can do this with Roll Folds, and Tri-folds, and any brochure with overlapping panels.
I hope you like this idea. Thanks for watching and subscribing. I’ll see you next week.
