Sorry to get all Buzzfeed headline on you, but some projects are so special you just have to share.
We worked with Q2 down in Austin, Texas. What resulted is kind of special!
It starts with a corrugated slipcase with another corrugate box inside. Both of these are printed, laminated with soft touch laminate with lines of spot UV.
When you pull out the inside box, you have a tray with a paperboard box resting inside. This custom box matches exactly with the corrugate from the printing to the soft touch lamination and the spot UV.
Under that box is a book. A present in a present.
But wait. you are not done.
Inside the paperboard box is a pocket folder with a box pocket. This folder acts like a four flap enclosure (yes, one of our sister companies is Archival Products and in preservation they use a lot of four flap enclosures). Open the custom pocket folder and find a brochure (whose main image peeks out at you from a custom die cut in the folder).
Scroll down and check out the great design. Wouldn’t you be happy to get this presentation?

For all of you who came to HOW and saw us at booth 215 it was a pleasure to meet you and hang out! Here are a few of our photos of HOW and Boston:
We enjoyed meeting everyone and for those who were not there, a lot of our working conversations trended around sustainable 3-ring binders, digitally printed binders, glue-less pocket folders and the recyclable binder, folder and box options. ( If you want a small glue less pocket folder sample – let us know!)
But we also covered the weather, coffee, paper options, crazy things all you designers are working on, the US census (great meeting you all!), Iowa and a whole lot more.
Thanks for all the great talks HOW Design Live 2014!
