A big box of Scott Mobile Offset paper. Inside were eight sheets fourteen inches square and two of them unfold to twenty-eight inch mini
posters. Take the lid off and the first one displays the perforation (two of
the circles) and die-cut potential of the paper. The op-art poster shows off
the folding quality. What I liked about the box was the cover: a printers
make-ready sheet. You don’t normally see these wonderful color designs outside
of a printers because they are just printed to check the inks and plate
positions so they run through the press several times to get things right
before the proper print run.
A rather unique Report from the youth oriented Domino’s
Pizza.The beautifully made dark-wood
box is 8.75 x 5.25 x 1.75 inches with metal rod holding the lid in place.I assume it was custom made for the slim
Report and the dominoes and I believe it cost $65 per box.Open the lid and folded grease-proof sheet
separates the Report and the two layers of dominoes.The unfolded sheet has the Rules of the Game
printed in black.
The dominoes are a bit
bigger than one by two inches and printed with two colors on each side.The
report has thirty-two pages followed by a long twenty page pull-out for the
Financial Statements and Notes.As it
was wire bound different weights of paper could be used with printing in matt
black and four color with a 150 screen.
A nice touch was a fifth working of light grey than runs through the Report
as a whole page color or as near invisible type for a clever graphic
effect.Top marks to Group 243 Design in
Ann Arbor for designing a quite stunning Report.
