Roll-Fold Leaflets from Cheap as Prints

Roll-fold leaflets provide a versatile canvas for expressing your design ideas, offering the flexibility of accommodating content across six or eight columns. The 6pp fold configuration is achieved by implementing two vertical folds, allowing the two outer panels to fold inward and neatly cover the centre panel. On the other hand, the 8pp fold involves the sheet being folded into quarters with three folds, each layer stacking on top of the other. This intricate folding method enhances the visual appeal of the leaflet, creating an engaging and dynamic presentation.

The 6pp and 8pp roll-fold leaflets serve a variety of purposes and find applications in diverse settings. Whether used for marketing collateral, informational brochures, or event promotions, these fold types offer a unique and engaging way to convey your message. The distinctive folding technique not only adds an element of surprise for the reader but also allows for strategic content placement, ensuring that essential information is prominently featured.

It enables businesses and individuals to tailor their leaflets according to their specific needs, ensuring an effective and visually appealing communication tool.

Material choices play a crucial role in the overall quality and feel of roll-fold leaflets. Options include 120gsm or 170gsm uncoated stock, providing a natural and tactile finish.

Additionally, the silk finish is offered in 130gsm, 170gsm, 250gsm, and 350gsm variants, allowing for a smooth and sophisticated texture.

  • What is a roll-fold leaflet?

    In general roll-fold leaflets consist of a sheet of paper that is folded into three sections. The right-side page is folded inwards and then folded in again. A roll-fold example would be one-third A4 or a DL leaflet.

  • How many panels can a roll-fold leaflet have?

    Roll-fold leaflets typically have six panels, with three on each side. However, variations can include more panels, depending on the size and design of the leaflet.

  • Is roll-fold the same as tri-fold?

    Technically no. Tri-fold leaflets use two vertical folds, resulting in three columns per side making 6pp.  However, roll-fold leaflets can consist of three folds, one on top of the other to make 8pp. Roll-fold is also referred to as letter fold.

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

    Include concise and compelling content that highlights key information, a visually appealing layout with a clear hierarchy, and high-resolution images or graphics to enhance visual appeal. Ensure that important elements like logos, contact information, and calls to action are strategically placed for maximum impact when the leaflet is unfolded.

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

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