Order Summary


Gate-Fold Leaflets from Cheap as Prints

Gate fold leaflets, also known as the ‘window fold,’ provide a dynamic and visually striking way to present your design. The unique folding technique allows the leaflet to be opened like double doors, revealing a larger and more impactful panel underneath. This design feature is particularly effective in delivering an immediate and attention-grabbing message to your clients as soon as they unfold the gate fold. The theatrical unveiling of the content makes it an ideal choice for marketing materials, promotional campaigns, or any situation where you want to make a memorable first impression.

One of the defining characteristics of gate fold leaflets is the central division of the sheet into two flaps, creating a symmetrical appearance. The flaps are hinged on the folds, resembling the structure of traditional religious triptychs. This nod to historical artistry adds a touch of sophistication and elegance to the design, making gate-fold leaflets stand out among other presentation formats. The parallel folding of the gate fold leaflets results in a finished size of A5 when folded and A4 when opened, providing a balance between compactness and spaciousness that is perfect for conveying a substantial amount of information.

When it comes to material choices, gate-fold leaflets offer a range of options to suit different preferences and design requirements. The uncoated stock, available in 120gsm or 170gsm, exudes a natural and tactile feel, while the gloss stock, offered in 130gsm or 170gsm, provides a sleek and polished appearance. For a luxurious and premium touch, the silk options include 130gsm, 170gsm, 250gsm, and 350gsm, catering to varying thickness preferences. The versatility of these material choices allows you to tailor your gate-fold leaflets to match the tone and style of your brand or campaign.

For those looking to add an extra layer of protection and durability to their gate fold leaflets, the optional double-sided lamination is available specifically for the 350gsm silk stock. This lamination not only enhances the overall look and feel of the leaflets but also serves to protect them from wear and tear, ensuring that your message remains pristine and impactful over time. Whether you are promoting a product, event, or brand, the gate-fold leaflet offers a visually engaging and versatile canvas to captivate your audience and leave a lasting impression.

  • What is a gate-fold leaflet?

    A gate-fold leaflet is a type of brochure or pamphlet that is folded into three sections, with the outer sections folding inward to meet at the center. This creates a gate-like appearance when the leaflet is closed.

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

    Include engaging visuals, concise yet compelling content, and a clear call-to-action to effectively convey your message and encourage reader interaction in your gate-fold leaflet design.

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

    Yes, including a 3mm bleed in your gate-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.

  • Why are gate-fold leaflets printed on thicker material crease folded?

    When dealing with thicker materials during folding, the fibers on the flap’s edge may experience occasional cracking. To prevent this issue, folded leaflets printed on materials with a weight of 250gsm or higher, undergo crease-folding to facilitate a smoother folding process and prevent fiber damage.

  • What do you mean by crease fold?

    When folding thicker paper like 250gsm, the fibers at the edge of the flap can sometimes crack. In order to prevent this, any paper stock that is 250gsm or thicker is crease folded. Creasing weakens the paper at the fold to make it easier to 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.
