Frank Gets Mail - Some of it He Really Likes!

Published on February 12, 2014

This week Frank highlights mailers he's received that caught his attention. One by Canon - a thick three dimensional piece from Wired magazine, and one by EFI - an older piece he misplaced but saved because it has a video component. Yes. Video in a mailed marketing piece!

Frank, just watched this video and loved the content: I, too, like to collect and crow about printed pieces that "don't just sit there, [they] do something."

Wish i had a copy of that EFI piece. Wow.

Next week's print tip is about such a terrific printed example - a big, gorgeous catalog that uses Augmented Reality technology to showcase its product line. Just stunning -- and FUN.

Thanks again,
Margie
