Wintry Wild Job

I don’t know why, but every once in a while, Wintry is asked to produce a job that seems almost impossible to produce-at least at first. This happened with a large poster/program that Wintry printed recently. Printing the piece, though oversized, was not the real challenge. The folding is/was the tricky part-very tricky. The piece needed to accordion fold a lot. Actually a total of 9 times, resulting in a 28 panel folder-and that’s only counting the panels on one side. If you count both sides there are a total of 56 readable panels, or pages. We very much wanted to turn this piece into a booklet of some sort, which would have been able to bind much easier, but time was short and the copy was long, and the design was set. So, with some very talented bindery people, the job folded up well. We all thought it might be somewhere around 1/8″ thick, but when all was said and done, the finished folder is probably almost 1/4″ thick. The last few folds needed to be done by hand, because the folding machine had no interest in a folder that thick. But, the end result worked for all parties involved.
