  • What is the process for achieving the finished size of A4 from A3 folded menus?

    To achieve the finished size of A4 from A3 folded menus, the A3 sheet is folded in half along its shortest edge, creating an A4 size with four panels.

  • What is the process for achieving the finished size of 1/3 A3 from A3 folded menus?

    To achieve the finished size of 1/3 A3 from A3 folded menus, the A3 sheet is folded twice along its longest edge, creating three equal sections, with each panel measuring 1/3 of the original A3 size.

  • What is the process for achieving the finished size of 1/4 A3 from A3 folded menus?

    To achieve the finished size of 1/4 A3 from A3 folded menus, the A3 sheet is folded twice, first along the shortest edge to create an A4 size, and then folded again along its longest edge, resulting in a quarter of the original A3 size with four equal sections.

  • What file format should I use for designing A3 folded menus?

    To achieve the best printing results, it is recommended to use high-resolution PDF files that include embedded fonts. Although JPEG, PNG, or TIFF formats are also acceptable, PDF is generally the preferred option for professional printing purposes.

  • What are the bleed and margin requirements when designing A3 folded menus?

    When designing A3 folded menus, it’s recommended to include a bleed of around 3mm to 5mm on all sides to ensure the design extends beyond the final trim size. Additionally, maintaining a margin of at least 5mm inside the trim lines helps prevent cutting issues and contributes to a polished and professional layout.

  • Should I use CMYK or RGB colour mode when designing A3 folded menus?

    For professional printing, it’s crucial to use the CMYK colour mode, as this is the colour model used in the printing process.

  • What is the required resolution for images when designing A3 folded menus?

    Images should be high resolution, preferably 300 dots per inch (DPI) to ensure crisp and clear prints. Low-resolution images may appear pixelated or blurry when printed.

  • Can I include borders when designing A3 folded menus?

    While borders can be added for aesthetic purposes, it’s advisable to keep them at least 5mm (0.2 inches) inside the trim edge to account for potential variations in the cutting process.

  • What is the best font size for clear readability when designing A3 folded menus?

    The best font size for clear readability on A3 folded menus typically ranges between 10 to 12 points, ensuring text is legible without sacrificing design aesthetics. Additionally, using a clean and easily readable font style contributes to optimal visibility and comprehension.

  • What paper stock is best for A3 folded menus?

    That depends on your requirements and budget. However, our most popular paper stock for A3 folded menus is 170gsm silk stock.

  • Why are A3 folded menus printed on thicker material crease folded?

    When folding thicker materials like 250gsm or heavier paper, there’s a chance of occasional cracking on the flap’s edge fibers. To address this, crease-folding is applied to ensure a smoother folding process and prevent damage to the fibers.

  • What will A3 folded menus printed on uncoated paper look and feel like?

    A3 folded menus printed on uncoated paper will have a matt finish, providing a natural and textured feel. The lack of coating enhances readability and absorbs ink differently, resulting in a softer appearance with a tactile quality.

  • What will A3 folded menus printed on gloss paper look and feel like?

    A3 folded menus printed on gloss paper will have a shiny and reflective surface, offering a vibrant and visually appealing finish. The gloss coating provides a smooth texture, enhancing colour saturation and creating a polished, professional look and feel.

  • What will A3 folded menus printed on silk paper look and feel like?

    A3 folded menus printed on silk paper will have a smooth and non-reflective surface, offering a balanced finish between matt and gloss. The silk coating provides a sophisticated feel, enhancing colour richness while reducing glare for a refined appearance.

  • Why is lamination for A3 folded menus only available on the 350gsm silk stock?

    Lamination for A3 folded menus is typically only available on the 350gsm silk stock due to its thickness and durability. Lamination adds a protective layer to the menus, and the heavier stock can withstand the lamination process without compromising their structural integrity. Thinner or lighter stocks may not be suitable for lamination as they could become too rigid or prone to damage.

  • How will lamination enhance the look and feel of A3 folded menus?

    Gloss lamination enhances A3 folded menus with a glossy, vibrant finish that intensifies colours and captures attention. It provides a sleek and smooth texture, amplifying the visual impact. On the other hand, matt lamination offers a sophisticated, non-reflective finish that adds an understated elegance while providing a velvety, tactile feel.
