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 Mossberg and Company in South Bend, Indiana.
I was actually out there last week for an event they hosted at Notre Dame University. Spectacular campus. Oh my God. And, I wanted to share with you this really great piece that Mossberg produced for Notre Dame. This was designed by the Notre Dame in-house design department. This is an admissions piece, and it’s so smart and simple, and I think I could see this in so many other scenarios. I thought you’d really like it.
So, it’s a Sleeve Mailer. It went in an envelope. But anyway, this, it has a sleeve on the outside and an insert, which I’ll show you in a minute. But, I want you to look at the die-cuts on the cover. So, they wrapped this sleeve with a beautiful, beautiful campus photo, and then there are little die-cut diamond shapes on both sides of the piece, and each diamond isolates one letter and when combined, the letters create a word. So, it’s ‘purpose’ on one side and ‘passion’ on the other. And so, when you take this piece out, then there’s a whole message actually.
It’s all letters but there are words that create a message, and then you open it up and there’s a really nice shot and some more information. So, just a simple 4-pager on the inside, and then as you can see, it’s a little easier to see now with the insert, you know, these different diamond shapes. They actually gave me an extra to take apart for you, which I always appreciate. Here’s the insert. I just wanted you to see the die on this. And so all it is, is two panels with two flaps or two white tabs on either side, a thumb pole right here, and so these tabs fold in and glue. And so this was die, score, fold, glue, insert. They did about 50,000 of these. End paper is Finch Opaque, a hundred-pound cover.
So, so well done. I could see this for invitations, marketing brochures, all sorts of different things. So, I hope you like it. That’s your 60-second Super-cool Fold of the Week, Sleeve Mailer with Creative Die-Cut. Forward this to your friends and colleagues, keep the dialogue going. And viewers, please send me your folds.
