I’ve got a low-budget strategy for you that can turn an everyday Tri-Fold into something special.  

It’s been fun to break my own rules and share multiple samples with you on the show, so I’m doing it again this week—this time with 4 creative and vastly different designs using a short trim Tri-Fold technique.  

A little about the samples:

  • The first idea demonstrates a clever way to use the short trim strategy create a brochure series.

  • The second and third samples leverage different ways to use the short cover to draw the eye and add interest.

  • The fourth sample breaks the mold—pushing the strategy a bit further and playing with paper, ink, and orientation.

I think you’ll really like the solutions from HBP, Molly McCoy, Ann Arbor Hands-On Museum, and Hederman Brothers. I hope you'll be encouraged to try this simple idea on an upcoming project.
