Here’s a marketing/promotional item I created recently.
This accordion card has 5 pages front & back, for a total of 10 faces. The five images you can see on this side are scenic photos. The other side has four event photos, two sporting events, and two non-sport. The last panel has info about me, including my contact info.
The quality of the piece is excellent. I am very pleased with how it printed. It was printed by Miller’s Lab on “classic felt” paper, 130# / 325 GSM. Each folded card is 3.5 x 5″. In retrospect, I am very happy with the size; small enough to fit in any pocket, yet large enough that the photo quality is clearly evident. Although Millers does offer an optional coating on the felt paper, I had their paper samples in hand and judged that a coating wasn’t necessary; I am glad for that decision. Unfortunately, the lab does not fold them, as you can see the flattened cards in the background of the photo here. I had to fold them all. Envelopes are provided.
Here are a few vendors that provide accordion cards.
