What happens when you spend almost 20 years collecting and documenting beautiful folded print samples, and studying marketing strategy, direct mail, design, haptics, paper engineering and printing technology? In short, you start a blog.

Beyond the fold is the Foldfactory blog, but it’s actually a place we built for our founder — Chief Folding Fanatic, Trish Witkowski. She is the world’s leading expert on creative folded formats for print, and this is a place for her to share her samples, ideas, stories and marketing tips with the world.
