  • What are tri-fold menus?

    Tri-fold menus have three portrait columns per side and are folded using two vertical folds.

  • Is tri-fold the same as roll-fold, c-fold and letter fold?

    Tri-fold, roll-fold, c-fold and letter fold is essentially the same thing. However, tri-fold is restricted to using two vertical folds, giving three portrait panels per side. The other fold types can have additional fold resulting in four panels per side (8pp).

  • What paper thickness is recommended for tri-fold menus?

    That really depends on your requirements and budget. However, our most popular paper stock for tri-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 tri-folded menus?

    We use digital and lithographic printing techniques to offer both small and large run tri-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 tri-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.

They gave me excellent advice and for a nominal fee produced a fantastic upmarket design just as I wanted. My customers love my new menu as everything is less cluttered and easy to understand.
