FOLDING

Offset Printing requires cost effectiveness and image quality. It excels for multicolour jobs that may require exact spot colour as well as full colour and other special printing effects. It is a commonly used printing technique in which the inked image is transferred from a plate to a rubber blanket, then to the printing surface.

 

There is an almost unlimited number of ways a piece of paper can be folded. To communicate the way your brochure should be folded it is important to use accurate descriptions. Shown below are some of the most common folding methods and terms.
When designing your publication, please keep in mind that folding is a mechanical process that may show slight variations depending on factors such as paper thickness.

Half-Fold

Half Fold

Most common type of fold. Examples: A3 fold to A4 or A4 fold to A5.


Half-Fold

Roll Fold

Panels fold in on each other. Each panel, from the outside in must be successively smaller to allow for the paper thickness.


Half-Fold

Gate Fold

Two end panels fold inward, then folds again vertically down centre of page.


Half-Fold

Parallel Fold

This type of fold requires the finished piece to be folded in half, then in half again – final, folded size is one quarter the original width by the same height.


Half-Fold

3 Panel Fold

A common layout is the three-panel, two fold brochure on A4 size paper that folds down to fit into an envelope. Example: A4 fold to DL.


Half-Fold

Concertina or Z Fold

Panels fold on top of each other like an accordion. Called a Z fold when there are 3 panels. The resulting brochure can be unfolded and laid flat to be read from side to side.
