Folding Guide


Folding is a simple and cost-effective way to turn a single, printed sheet into a versatile, multidimensional document. With the different folds on offer, you can plan how your content is revealed to the reader across a series of pages.

This guide illustrates the broad range of folds used in our Folded Flyers and Leaflets. For free downloadable design templates for every size and type of Folded Flyer or Leaflet, please visit https://www.solopress.com/free-artwork-templates/folded-flyers-leaflets/.

Please note: If using Spot UV or Foiling, it’s important that varnished areas do not extend across the fold lines. For more information on how to prepare artwork for Foil and Spot UV, check out our comprehensive guide.
