Hey everybody, I’m Trish from foldfactory, and this is your 60-second Super-cool Fold of the Week. Thanks for watching. This week’s Super-cool Fold is a really fresh twist on the Fold of the Week class like the Iron Cross Fold.
This is called the Traveling Iron Cross. You’re going to love it. This is from my friends at Cedar Graphics in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. This is designed by Ellen Rickard in the in-house design team at Cornell College. This is for Cornell College. It is part of a recruitment piece. They actually use this piece in several different kits.
They’ve won some awards for this. I think you’re going to love it. So, if you watch Fold of the Week, the Iron Cross Fold is that plus shape with the panels that go in kind of the shape of a plus. So, the way that this works is it opens like this and like this and like this, which starts to look like an Iron Cross, but add one more panel you’d have your Iron Cross Fold. But instead, it moves over and opens like this. So, it travels. So, you can actually keep going, you can add panels, and create this Traveling Iron Cross. So, as with any other Iron Cross, you can really play with opening ores.
So, this one opens this way, but you could play around with what order they open. You just have to then compensate the panels correctly because the panels have to be a little bit smaller to tuck in, if they’re tucking in. So, this one’s die, cut and score on the bobs. These were hand-stripped and hand-assembled and folded. These were actually used in a couple of different scenarios. They did about 17,000 of them, but they produce them for – They actually stitched in a booklet and turn it into a little mini view book, which is very cool. And then, they also took this piece and then they stitched it into a packet folder.
So, it was part of a kit, a part of a packet folder. They used it on several different scenarios, not just kind of creating it like this and sending it out. It’s actually a piece, a component of different kits, so that you use it for lots of versatile, different applications. This is pretty for color with a spot UV on the outside. Really cool, just so clever. By the way, this is 12-point Productolith white C1S. So, great stuff. I hope you like it. That’s your 60-second Super-cool Fold of the Week, The Traveling Iron Cross Fold. Forward this to your friends and colleagues, keep the dialogue going. And viewers, please send me your folds.
