Here’s a brilliant modification to a simple pop-up format that was featured on Fold of the Week episode 282. The original featured a single swinging pop-up mechanism, and this modified concept from PLAY Creative of Lincoln, Nebraska, features an exciting, double swinging pop-up.

Banner-Style 10-Page Parallel Self-Mailer Format

Let’s keep the “low-budget wonders” rolling! Here’s another creative and practical format to add to your regular rotation.
