Ball & Doggett is Australia’s largest distributor of paper, packaging, wide format media, plastics, inks, foils and more to the print and design market. Our latest promotion celebrates the diversity of their digital-ready paper range with a series of interactive postcards that allow each folded, perforated panel to become a smaller paper swatch.
