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

    To achieve the finished size of A4 slim from A4 folded menus, the A4 sheet is folded along both its shorter and longer sides, resulting in a narrower and elongated format.

  • What file format should I use for designing A4 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 A4 folded menus?

    When designing A4 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 A4 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 A4 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 A4 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 A4 folded menus?

    When designing A4 folded menus, aim for a font size between 10 and 12 points to ensure clear readability and visual appeal. This size strikes a balance between legibility and effective use of space.

  • What paper stock is best for A4 folded menus?

    That depends on your requirements and budget. However, our most popular paper stock for A4 folded menus is 130gsm and 170gsm silk stock.

  • Why are A4 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 A4 folded menus printed on uncoated paper look and feel like?

    A4 folded menus printed on uncoated paper will have a non-glossy, matt finish that gives them a more organic and rustic appearance. The absence of a coating enhances the paper’s texture, resulting in a slightly rougher feel. When held, these menus may evoke a sense of authenticity and lend a tactile experience, making them ideal for conveying a more down-to-earth or traditional message.

  • What will A4 folded menus printed on gloss paper look and feel like?

    A4 folded menus printed on gloss paper will have a shiny and reflective surface, giving them a polished and professional appearance. The smooth texture of the paper will make them feel sleek and glossy to the touch, providing a more modern and vibrant impression. The high-quality finish of gloss paper can enhance the colours and images, resulting in a visually striking and attention-grabbing design.

  • What will A4 folded menus printed on silk paper look and feel like?

    A4 folded menus printed on silk paper will have a smooth and luxurious appearance, similar to satin. The silk finish gives them a subtle sheen that enhances the colours and images, creating a refined and elegant look. When held, the menus will feel silky and have a soft texture, adding to the overall tactile experience.

  • Why is lamination for A4 folded menus only available on the 350gsm silk stock?

    Lamination for A4 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 A4 folded menus?

    Gloss lamination enhances A4 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.
