Greeting card pop-up construction
The card was used as the 2017 Christmas card but will also work as a sample of greeting card from Iggesund Paperboard. It is a pop-up construction created by the German designer and paper artist Peter Dahmen. The motif is a Swedish winter scene inspired by Iggesund’s guest facility in Hedvigsfors, which is located deep in the Hälsingland forest.
The card is Invercote Creato 260 g/m2 by Albrecht Creative paper products and the envelope Invercote G 240 g/m² by Eberl Print both based in Germany. The advanced technical features include the fir tree’s height relative to the card’s base and the fact that as it is being raised up, the tree’s top must be unfolded by 225 degrees, which places tough demands on the paperboard’s properties.
The card is double folded and glued to create a strong base for the pop-up mechanism. The motif is four-colour printed by the German pop-up specialists Albrecht creative paper products, who also did the foil lamination, embossing, protective varnishing and assembly.
The order is a set including one card and one envelope.
