Order Summary


Gate Fold Menus from Cheap as Prints

Gate fold menus is also referred to as window fold. This is because the sheet is divided down the centre into two flaps, which are hinged on the folds and can be opened out, very much like an old religious triptych. The gate fold option is ideal for designs that require a large centre panel to promote the main sections of a menu.

  • What is a gate fold menu?

    Gate fold menus consist of three panels where the two outside panels fold inward to meet in the middle.

  • What paper thickness is recommended for gate fold menus?

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

  • Do I have to pay Vat on folded menus?

    Most of the time folded menus are zero-rated, however, can be subject to VAT depending on the information supplied. If the design contains a message like ‘bring this leaflet in store to get 10% discount’ the print will be deemed to be a voucher and subject to Vat. Another circumstance whereby Vat is chargeable, is if the design contains a form.

  • How do you print your gate folded menus?

    We use digital and lithographic printing techniques to offer both small and large run gate fold menus at the most competitive prices. Your design will be printed in full colour to one or both sides using a CMYK process.

  • What is CMYK?

    CMYK is an acronym for cyan, magenta, yellow and black. These are the colours used in the printing process of your gate fold menus.

  • 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 uncoated paper stock?

    Uncoated has no surface coating with a rougher texture that is suitable for writing on.

  • What is gloss paper stock?

    Gloss paper is a smooth-coated stock that has a shiny surface and is brilliant for designs with vibrant colours, backgrounds and images.

  • What is silk paper stock?

    Silk paper is a coated stock with a slight sheen. This allows the print to be vibrant and crisp but has a softer undertone than a high-shine gloss finish. This stock is also suitable to write on with a ballpoint pen.
