FOLD of the week #429

Circular Half-Tulip Fold Brochure 
At Foldfactory, we're always "wow-ed" by great formats, design, and printing. However, one of our favorite things to do is to find production stories that will help everyone understand how some of the most amazing feats in print are achieved. This week's spotlight shines on a circular-shaped Mercedes brochure printed by C.J. Graphics of Mississauga, ON. Beautiful paper and print techniques, combined with unique half-tulip folding make the legendary Mercedes hood ornament collapse into a gorgeous, folded brochure with a curious perimeter shape. With nearly 100,000 to produce, this fold would have been a beast to fold by hand – and Trish will share the folding secret from Specialties in Toronto that increased production speed by 400%! We think you'll be amazed by this week's super-cool fold.
