The ultimate creative rave flyer or just dam hard to keep looking mint?
What am I talking about? Die cut flyers. Championed by the likes of Jungle Fever these flyers are cut into a shape of an object. Jungle Fevers ones are in the shapes of heads, lions, statues and more and they do look very cool because of it. However as a collector were these just difficult to stop from getting knock and creased corners? Some of the flyers were even made in the form of a wearable mask like the Jungle Fever one shown here. Die cut flyers are rare as not many companies made them. The cost of the cutters back in the 90's was quite expensive and they certainly cost more to print and design making them a luxury few promoters thought worth the risk. But we love the ones in our collection and are pleased they exist. Fantazia's only contribution to this genre is our Millennium flyer with the cut out eyes....
