  • What is a cross fold leaflet?

    A cross-fold leaflet, also known as a cross-fold brochure, is a type of printed material that is folded both horizontally and vertically, creating multiple panels for information presentation. The most common example of a cross-folded leaflet is a map.

  • What software can I use to design a cross-fold leaflet?

    Popular design software includes Adobe InDesign, Illustrator, and Photoshop. However, you can also use free alternatives like Google Slides for simpler designs.

  • What should I include in my cross-fold leaflet design?

    When designing a cross-fold leaflet, be sure to incorporate engaging visuals, concise and impactful text, and a clear call-to-action to effectively communicate your message and captivate your audience’s attention. Additionally, consider including essential information such as contact details, key benefits or features, and any relevant branding elements to create a cohesive and informative design.

  • What file format should I use for designing a cross-fold leaflet?

    PDF (Portable Document Format) is the preferred file format for designing leaflets. It ensures that your design remains intact, with fonts and images embedded.

  • Should I include bleed in my cross-fold leaflet design?

    Yes, including a 3mm bleed in your cross-fold leaflet design is crucial to prevent white borders or gaps along the edges after printing and folding. It ensures that the design extends slightly beyond the final trim size, allowing for precision in the cutting process and a seamless appearance.

  • How can I ensure that the text is readable after folding?

    To ensure readability after folding, maintain an adequate margin between the text and the fold line, use a readable font size and typeface, and consider the paper’s thickness to prevent ink cracking along the fold.

  • What is the difference between uncoated, gloss and silk paper?

    Uncoated paper has a natural, textured feel and is absorbent, making it suitable for a classic, rustic look. Gloss paper is coated with a shiny finish, providing vibrant colours and sharp images, while silk paper falls between uncoated and gloss, offering a smooth texture with a subtle sheen for a balanced, professional appearance.
