Need an Opinion on the Programs Please

I need some opinions on my programs. I am printing the tree logo on 5.5" circle cards from Paper Source, as shown by the "Cover" graphic below.



I was planning on using circles for the front and back covers and have the text spread out between the two, accordian style, as shown in the "Option 1" graphic below. This really limits the amount of text and details that I can share.


I thought about mounting a booklet behind the circle card cover, as shown in the "Option 2" graphic, so that I can print more details, but this doesn't seem as unique as the accordian style.



So what do you think? Option 1 -- minimalist or Option 2 -- booklet? Please comment. As always, thanks!

Option 1!

I'd say that it would be easier for guests to flip through option 2. It'd be hard to open up the accordian to search through it all while sitting next to someone.

Not to mention there always seems to be a lot of stuff to put into a program.

option 2 is my vote.

Option 1 is unique, yes. But I also think it will be more cumbersome for your guests. I imagine people with their arms slightly outstreched and overlapping one another.

That being said, I say do whichever is less work.

Option 1...It is fun and unique!

Option 2 is my vote. I agree with blablover and Kelly that it would be easier for your guest to read.

I would definitely go for option2. The purpose of the programs is to give your guests good info, and also to give them something to read while they are awaiting the beginning of the show! So if #2 gives you more room, go for that one! I'm sure the #2 design will come out super cute, and since no one will have #1 to compare it to, I bet you will get lots of compliments on them....

I like Option 1 - and am confused as to why it gives you less space!?

Number 2 would be easier to read.

Option #3: Why not bind a bunch of circle cards together and just have them flip those?

Ooo Ahhh!! I love Kate's option 3. Both unique and practical! I love how Option 1 looks, but it is important that your program be easy to handle for guests. Hmmm... Good Luck!

Linda said...

I like Kate's option 3 as well.

i love the idea of option 3, but that could get expensive if you're "outsourcing" the cutting. i've seriuosly been racking my brain, but I can't think of a good solution!!! let me think some more! i'll get back to you...

OPTION 1 definitely!

Reason being:
1. Looks neat, tidy and most important: TIMELESS

2. "limits your texts?" Are you planning on telling a loooong story hun? "KISS!" = keep it short and sweet!

3. You can even go vertical instead of horizontal layout... so much interesting ways you can play around with this fold! ;)

I am late to this - but I vote Option 1 or Kate's Option 3. I feel like option 3 would give you the same effect as your option 2 but look a little cleaner. Good luck!

Cait said...

what if you modify option 1 so that it unfolds vertically instead of horizontally? i love the idea though!
