If you are ordering a large print run, we recommend banding. We can bundle leaflets in groups of 25, 50 or 100 to make counting and distribution easier.


We can produce leaflets and booklets with up to 12 page sides. If you need more pages, please switch to our brochures.

Folding

Types of Fold

Letterfold

Using a letterfold, you can present your information in style with up to 10 sides. Here, the individual sides are wrapped around one side without any change in direction. In this way, two parallel folds produce a total of six sides for your content, for example.

Leaflets - letterfold 6 sided portrait

Cross Fold

The eight-side cross fold is ideally suited for use with large cards, posters and infographics. The sheet is first folded lengthways and then subsequently crossways. This produces folded edges in the form of a cross.

Leaflets - cross fold

Closed Gate Fold

In the case of a closed gate fold, the two outer sides are also folded inward. The only difference: with an additional fold in the middle of the sheet, you have 8 equally sized sides to use for your design.

Leaflets - closed gate fold 6-8 sides

Flat (not folded)

Make use of the flat (not folded) feature so you can further process your folded leaflets to your individual needs. To prevent the folded back from breaking, your folded leaflets come pre-grooved at paper grammages from 160gsm.

Material

Materials for Folded Leaflets

Our silk/gloss finish papers are available in a range of different paper grammages. These papers are coated on both sides and are wood-free. They have a high degree of whiteness, which achieves a faultless full-colour image.

Our recycled papers are made from 100% reused papers and are particularly environmentally friendly as they save 70% of the energy and water consumption compared to conventional paper production.

If you need hard-wearing leaflets, we recommend using paper grammages of at least 170gsm and a finishing coating. Grammages of 135gsm and below are recommended for folding types such as cross and double parallel folds. They make folding easier and create a clean, crisp fold.

Recycled Paper

170 | 250gsm

Recycled paper consists of 100% reused paper. As well as saving wood resources, in comparison with conventional paper production, more than 70% of the energy and water used is saved. In short: Recycled paper significantly protects the environment.

Silk/Gloss Finish Paper

90 | 135 | 170 | 250 | 300gsm

This paper is finished with a synthetic silk or gloss coating. This creates a more finished, smoother and stronger surface, enabling high reproduction and better print quality, particularly in the case of pictures and contours.

Finishing Options

Finishing Options for Folded Leaflets

If you want to improve the look, feel and robustness of your print product, we recommend our finishing options. Folded leaflets with a UV coating or lamination not only provide a high-quality impression but also increase colour brilliance and protect against external influences.

Lamination

matt finish | gloss finish | soft touch

Give your product an elegant look and high-quality feel. Emphasise your quality standards with lamination. It enhances the colours and protects the product against external influences.

FAQ

FAQ's for Folded Leaflets

How should I design a folded leaflet?

Flyers and folded leaflets are best designed with a graphics programme in combination with one of the many free print templates for leaflets and our datasheets for download on our website. Find all the information you need for correctly creating your print files in our Artwork Instructions Guide.

Can I design folded leaflets online?

If you don't have a graphic designer or you don't have much experience in creating print data, you can use our free Online Designer. To use this, select your product and click 'Design online' on the shop page. Then you can get started!

Are spot colours available for folded leaflets?

Folded leaflets can be printed with various colour mode combinations. We print affordable leaflets according to customer requirements in 1, 2, 4 or 5 colour modes, with or without HKS or Pantone. Black, black with one spot colour (HKS or Pantone) or HKS/ Pantone only are also available.

Can I send my folded leaflets to more than one shop branch?

You can deliver to a maximum number of 20 addresses per order, saving you time and effort.

Which paper is the right one for my folded leaflets?

With our free paper samples, you can examine all our paper types and thicknesses comfortably at home and decide which one suits you best.

How should I create my layout so that my content is displayed the way I want it to be?

The page sequence and definition of the title page can vary depending on the leaflet fold type and the page number. Therefore, we recommend that you download the appropriate print template for your configured product directly from us. You can find the template by setting the full specifications for your desired product in our configurator and then switching to the template generator via the PDF icon on the left. There you can download the appropriate template. In the PDF template, you will then see the correct page order starting on page 1 (title page).

How do I avoid white edges around my folded leaflets?

Always add a trim allowance of 2 mm to your artwork file. Make sure background pictures and images close to the edge of your design should also extend into this area so we can cut them. This prevents thin, white edges from forming after cutting. More information can be found in our Artwork Instructions Guide.

Versatile Folded Leaflets for Your Marketing Success

SAXOPRINT prints advertising flyers and helps you create folded leaflets online. We offer you tips about formats, paper grammage, various fold types for folded leaflets, and even layout. We also offer leaflet templates for your best printing result. What's more, we aim to inspire you with ideas about effective ways to use folded leaflets for your marketing success.

Folded Leaflet printing made easy

Create folded leaflets online and choose from our large selection of sizes, paper, folds and perforations. Z-folds, letter folds and gate folds are a few of the many design options to give your folded leaflets a new look every time. We recommend selecting our creasing option when ordering folded leaflets on paper with grammages of 170gsm and upwards.

SAXOPRINT online shop offers professional folded leaflet printing with up to 6 lines of perforation. It's a great way to get quick customer feedback. With one or two-sided printing, a perpendicular perforation is also possible and doesn't necessarily have to run from one side all the way to the other. Further perforations should run parallel and be spaced at least one centimetre apart. For designing perforated folded leaflets online, we recommend a minimum paper weight of 135gsm.

Practical uses for Folded Leaflets

We also offer you plenty of further information and creative inspiration on our blog. Some ideas about how to put folded leaflets to use:

  • 12 pages, 135gsm finished paper with finishing for company presentations
  • Folded flyers with gate fold for menus at weddings and events
  • Leaflets for parties and invitations
  • Event and theatre programmes
  • 4 page DL folded leaflets for price lists and product/ service outlines
  • Perforated printed leaflets for discount vouchers
  • Menus finished with UV coating for enhanced shine and durability
  • Folded leaflets for circulars
  • Advertisements for newspaper inserts

By the way, we check the folded leaflets you send to us free of charge. This basic check helps us to ensure that layout and colour have been correctly formatted. You can also order one of our extensive check procedures: PDF proof, colour proof or galley proof.
