Folds/Folded Leaflet Guide

Folded Leaflet Printing

A) Half Fold

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

B) Roll Fold

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.

C) Z Fold or Accordion Fold

The printed sheet is creased two times (z) or more (accordion) giving parallel folds that open like an accordion, for example a leaflet.

D) Gate Fold

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.
