The sample Norman's Printery kit includes a pocket folder containing die-cut inserts, a hexagonal box containing a glass tumbler filled with some of their favorite Fair Trade organic chocolate + tea, and an insert tray, wrapped in Keaykolour Rosebud. In fact, Norman’s Printery used Keaykolour for every element in the kit. They knew they wanted color and texture to be a major design element, and Keaykolour gave them all the right options.
