Hey everybody, I’m Trish from foldfactory, this is your 60-second Super-cool Fold of the Week.
Thanks for watching. This week’s Super-cool Fold is from my good friends at ColorCraft of Virginia, a corporate press company, and this is a really smart, simple solution that I think you’re going to love. They produced this for the George Washington University.
This is an invitation for a special event and designed by the George Washington University in-house marketing team. It’s so smart. It's got this fun shape at the top. It’s got a sleeve on the outside, and you pull this insert, and the insert pulls. You can see the nice shape here. The insert pulls, and then it locks and stops like this. And then, here’s all the event information. So, it’s kind of fun how it opens and a little bit surprising how it stops right there. So, they were kind enough to give me a sample that was on a sample so that you could see how it works. And so, the sleeve is very simple. There’s two panels, a front and back, and then there are tabs on the top and bottom, and then there is a special little tab right here, and this is the one that provides one half of the locking mechanism that you'll see.
So, what happens is these two tabs fold in, and then this one folds down, and then the insert has a tab at the bottom with a little – It has a little tab right here with a score, and that folds up. And so, what happens is you put the insert in, and then that’s got a little folded up tab, sides go in, this goes down and folds and glues, and then when this slides up, it stops and locks.
So, these were printed on an HP Indigo 5500 digital press. They were die, cut and house, score, hand glue, fold and assemble. They did 1,600 of the sleeves, and then they did two different variations on the inserts. So, just very fun and clever. These were also inserted into metallic envelopes for some extra pizazz. So, just a great, great, simple, fun, creative solution. I hope you like it. That’s your 60-second Super-cool Fold of the Week, Creative Invitation with Slide and Lock Insert.
