  • What is a z-fold menu?

    A z-fold menu is a type of folded menu design where the paper is folded into three sections in a zigzag manner. Folding options include either two parallel folds to create six equal-sized panels or three parallel folds to eight equal-sized panels. The folds are made in opposite directions, which forms the shape of a Z.

  • What software can I use to design a z-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 z-fold menu design?

    When designing a z-fold menu, it’s essential to include a clear and concise selection of menu items with appealing descriptions, attractive visuals, and organised sections for easy navigation, ensuring it reflects the theme and atmosphere of your establishment while maintaining readability.

  • What file format should I use for designing a z-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 z-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 z-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.
