Order Summary


Extended Folded Leaflets from Cheap as Prints

Extended folded leaflets are a versatile and practical choice when it comes to creating visually captivating and information-rich printed materials. These leaflets provide ample space for an array of content, making them ideal for projects that demand the inclusion of extensive information, such as flowcharts, timelines, or panoramic images. With the ability to unfold into a long landscape format, the leaflets allow for the seamless presentation of a continuous message that unfolds with each panel.

One of the key advantages of extended folded leaflets is their ability to accommodate 6pp or 8pp panel designs. This means that you have the freedom to design your content in a way that best suits your specific requirements. Whether you choose the letter fold (roll-fold) or z-fold option, you can rest assured that your message will be presented in an organised and visually appealing manner.

The letter fold, also known as the roll-fold, is a popular choice for extended folded leaflets. This folding method involves folding the leaflet in on itself in a series of parallel folds, resulting in a compact and portable format. This type of fold is particularly useful when you want to guide the reader through a linear sequence of information, such as a step-by-step process or a chronological timeline.

On the other hand, the z-fold offers a slightly different approach to presenting your content. With this folding method, the extended folded leaflet is divided into three panels that fold in a zigzag pattern, resembling the letter “Z” when fully folded. The z-fold is especially effective when you want to create a visually dynamic presentation, as it allows for the unfolding of panels in a non-linear sequence. This can be particularly beneficial when showcasing panoramic images or when you want to create an element of surprise and discovery for the reader.

In conclusion, extended folded leaflets provide a practical and visually appealing solution for projects that require the inclusion of extensive content. With the option to choose between the letter-fold or z-fold, you can tailor your design to suit your specific needs. Whether you’re creating a flowchart, a timeline, or showcasing panoramic images, these leaflets offer an excellent platform for conveying your message in a clear and engaging manner. So, the next time you need to print extended content, consider the versatility and impact of extended folded leaflets.

  • What are the uses for extended folded leaflets?

    Extended folded leaflets are commonly used in marketing and advertising to provide detailed information about products or services, offering various compact and comprehensive formats for conveying key messages. Additionally, they are employed in educational materials or instructional guides, presenting organised content in a space-efficient manner for easy reference and understanding.

  • What file format should I use when designing an extended folded leaflet?

    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 extended folded leaflets?

    When designing extended folded leaflets, 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 extended folded leaflets?

    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 extended folded leaflets?

    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 extended folded leaflets?

    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 extended folded leaflets?

    The best font size for clear readability on extended folded leaflets 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 extended folded leaflets?

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

  • Why are extended folded leaflets 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 extended folded leaflets printed on uncoated paper look and feel like?

    Extended folded leaflets printed on uncoated paper will have a more natural and tactile appearance, with a slightly rough texture. They will offer a matt finish and a less vibrant colour reproduction compared to coated paper, resulting in a more subdued and organic aesthetic.

  • What will extended folded leaflets printed on gloss paper look and feel like?

    Extended folded leaflets printed on gloss paper will have a shiny and smooth surface that enhances colour vibrancy and sharpness, resulting in a more vibrant and visually striking appearance. The glossy finish provides a sleek and professional feel to the touch, offering a high-quality and polished presentation.

  • What will extended folded leaflets printed on silk paper look and feel like?

    Extended folded leaflets printed on silk paper will have a silky smooth texture and a semi-gloss finish, offering a balance between the matt and gloss options. This gives them a sophisticated and elegant appearance while maintaining a subtle sheen, providing a pleasing tactile experience.
