    Belm Designs goes old school with a papercraft model of the upcoming 2011 No limits tour bus. Papercraft goes way back to the days of constructing models from ordinary paper,tape and glue mixed with a little ingenuity.

Belm Designs goes old school with a papercraft model of the upcoming 2011 No limits tour bus. Papercraft goes way back to the days of constructing models from ordinary paper,tape and glue mixed with a little ingenuity. Now days most design firms will render a 3D model for the client to view, but sometimes there's something about having a physical model you can view from all angles plus it just looks cool on your desk. Still a great way to present your ideas to the client.

Full layout of the bus design complete with tabs for gluing
Sending the artwork to the printer for the papercraft model. We used the same artwork for real tour bus.
Printing the model. In the old days the artwork might be hand drawn or painted, but we have the luxury of a printer nowdays.
Cutting out the wheels. We have the ability to cut out the design automatically with our contour cut printer, but decided to go manually.
Scoring/creasing and folding the model
Putting it all together... A star for every year of great business for the client
