Di-cut Marketing Piece

Di-cut Marketing Piece

Unconventionally shaped wire-o catalogs and cleverly folded mailers are designed to turn heads. It can be a costly affair to produce complicated print projects, but if done right, you’ll reap the rewards.The mailer featured above is a very tricky shape for multiple reasons. It’s a tricky cut job for one, but assembly requires alot of manual work. A nicely printed and cut job can all be lost with sloppy folding and sealing. It’s such a clever design – one that received loads of attention.

The wire-o book featured here is a fantastic example of unusual designs that pay off. The SF Museum and Historical Society produced the printed pieces for a fund raising event. No doubt it was one heck of a shin dig. The finished product presented beautifully and brought home the Gold for Bacchus Press  in the Visual Media Alliance Showcase of Excellence.
