Using just two paper stocks and one paper size (A3), Dutch designer Thijs Verbeek prints a c5 envelope, business envelope, stationery, an invoice, reminder cards, a CD envelope, labels, business cards and an entire copy of Encyclopedia Britannica. Okay, I lied about the last part, but it seems possible.

Project Description

The purpose was to try using an A3 paper efficiently as possible. The essence of the identity consists of two A3-size sheets: a paper and a cardboard one, perforated and printed. From these two sheets all of the stationery can be made.

Production Lesson(s)

Keep making much laser-cut tests to develop the design.”
