Roll-Fold Menus from Cheap as Prints

Roll-fold menus are an excellent choice for establishments seeking to showcase their creativity and convey information effectively. With the flexibility of six or eight columns, these menus provide ample space for presenting a wide range of options and content. The 6pp fold configuration is achieved by employing two vertical folds that enable the outer panels to fold inward, effectively covering the centre panel. This arrangement allows for a seamless transition between sections while maintaining a compact and visually appealing design.

The 8pp fold, on the other hand, offers even more versatility by dividing the sheet into quarters through three consecutive folds. This results in a menu that consists of eight panels, providing additional space for presenting a comprehensive array of choices and details. The layered folding pattern creates a visually engaging experience for customers, as they can unfold each section to reveal new content. This approach is particularly useful for menus that feature a diverse range of options, such as extensive food and beverage menus in restaurants or comprehensive service listings in hotels.

In conclusion, roll-fold menus offer a dynamic and visually engaging approach to presenting information. With the choice between six or eight columns, establishments have the flexibility to express their creativity and effectively organise content. The 6pp fold employs two vertical folds to cover the centre panel, while the 8pp fold divides the sheet into quarters, resulting in a menu with eight panels. These configurations allow for seamless transitions between sections and provide ample space for presenting a diverse range of options.

FAQ's

  • What is a roll-fold menu?

    A roll-fold menu is a type of menu design where the sections fold upon each other like a roll, typically used in multi-page menus to compactly present various offerings while allowing easy navigation.

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

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

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

    Technically no. Tri-fold menus use two vertical folds, resulting in three columns per side making 6pp.  However, roll-fold menus 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 menu?

    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 menu design?

    Include a visually appealing layout with clear categorisation of dishes, concise descriptions, and high-quality images to entice customers, while ensuring readability and ease of navigation.

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

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

  • Should I include bleed in my roll-fold menu design?

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

Artwork

Be sure to supply your design using the CMYK colour mode with a resolution of at least 300dpi. Additionally, embed fonts, outline text and extend bleed areas beyond the trim marks to prevent any important elements from being cut off during printing and trimming. To ensure artwork is supplied correctly to avoid delays, we recommend using our artwork templates.

Please Note: For most products, the CMYK colour mode is utilised, however, other printed materials such as carrier bags and branded writing instruments are printed using Pantone colours. Any artwork supplied in RGB will be converted in to CMYK or Pantone depending on the product. Please bear in mind this will result in a significant colour difference which we will make you aware of prior to print.

  • Designs should be supplied using CMYK colour mode
  • Resolution should be at least 300dpi

  • Bleed areas should be extended beyond trim marks
