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 from my good friends at PDI in Quebec, Canada. I haven't heard from them in a while, so it's very fun to get this fabulous hybrid format in the mail from them. This was for client Rolland Inc. They are a paper manufacturer just north of Montreal.
Design was Alezane Agency. This is a mailer. This is a Rolland of Spring news publication. And, this mailed in Canada and the US, and you’re going to love this. This is a hybrid format, so this combines multiple different folding styles into one new hybrid format. And, this is using a double swinger and an accordion. So, double swinger involves an open gate plus some swinger folds. Plus, there's an accordion here, so you're going to like this. So, it opens like this, so there's your double swinger.
You've got this open gate fold here. So, gates in and back out, and then you've got die cuts that are creating your swinger fold. If you watch Fold of the Week, swinger folds create that swinging effect using a series of die cuts. So, that's how these work. They layer over each other, get one this way and one that way, there's your double swinger. Okay. Then, it opens into an accordion. So, this is neat for a newsletter or a news publication, because they have a lot of real estate for information on both sides.
But then, it got this really fun kind of opening experience with the layered images that, you know, they created with the double swinger. So, these were – The paper by the way is Rolland opaque 70-pound text. These were print for color, die, score, hand fold. They did three different variations on this for a total of about 5000 pieces. So, just really, really cool how this one works. I hope you like it. That’s your 60-second Super-cool Fold of the Week, Accordion Double Swinger Hybrid Format.
