Darryl shared a project he just completed for a house account. The owner wanted a unique, simple, multi-page brochure to brand his company. He passed samples of the finished product around to the group and showed how the 16-page brochure is printed with 4 signature pages that are printed on both sides, and when collated, trimmed, stitched, and folded, it creates a 16-page brochure. Darryl showed marketing cards that showcase a division of that same company that their sales team use when meeting with their clients. The marketing cards have photos of services they offer on the front and a non-glossy back where the sales team can make notes, write down special offers, etc. for clients.
