Double Parallel Fold
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.
Types of Fold
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
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'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.
