NewPage's Ed series is all about paper, print, design and knowledge. Let's look closer into Ed #15 Interactive Print - page 12? Care for an orange?


Clever use of printing and finishing techniques like die-cuts create a memorable connection that changes readers into participants. Creativity matters. With so much clutter vying for your audience's attention, a fresh, creative idea is noticed and appreciated now more than ever. Pull on a spiral die-cut score over the image of the orange to reveal an image of the peeled orange underneath. That's real, literal interactivity - the reader moves the paper, the message moves the reader. This is called stopping power, and it buys you all kinds of time with your audience to communicate and create a relationship that can translate into a desired action. And remember, unique production techniques in printed material tend to be saved and passed on rather than thrown away. Or, they can be recycled. It's a win/win.
