Folds/Folded Leaflet Guide
While most of the marketing materials you see fall in the common ‘standard’ paper fold category, the possibilities really are endless – you’re only limited by your imagination. Paper can be scored and folded into some pretty crazy shapes and sizes. Plus, creative folding can be a great way to stand out from the crowd with your next marketing piece.

The printed sheet is simply folded in half vertically. This creates 4 pages, front-cover, back-cover and two internal pages. An example of this is a birthday card.

The printed sheet is simply folded in half horizontally. This creates 4 pages, front-cover, back-cover and two internal pages. Another example of this would be a place name.

The printed sheet is creased twice to give 6 pages. The right-hand panel is normally trimmed 2mm smaller depending on paper weight to allow it to be folded neatly into the two larger pages. An example of this is a normal utility bill, which is A4 folded to 1/3 A4.

A ‘Z’ fold is creased two times. This creates 6 equally sized pages. An example would be a folded leaflet.

The printed sheet is creased twice to give 6 pages. The right and left pages are half the size of the centre page. They fold inward to meet the middle of the page. An example of this is a wedding invitation.
