Folded Tyvek samples arrived!
We just received a pack of folded Tyvek samples [scroll down for a pic] and we were stoked to see that the fold from the MiuraLab folding machine is just as good (actually, slightly better) than a handfolded sheet.
We had hoped that the MiuraLab guys would be able to handle printing as well as folding, but they've insisted that we find a third party to do the printing so we're now looking for a good printer in Tokyo. The first quote we got was from an art-book printer and it was extremely high, so we're currently waiting on other quotes. We will have a printer chosen by Friday, at which point we will officially be starting production!
