We offer a choice of three different triple coated art boards for our Presentation Folders: 400gsm matt art, 280gsm silk and 280gsm gloss. As an option, they can be either gloss or matt laminated one side or both sides.
The minimum recommended order is 250 as these Folders are litho printed, but you can enter your desired quantity in the box below the price table. For smaller quantities of our most popular Folder shapes, please see our Digital Folders page.
Popular Presentation Folder Shapes and Sizes
We have a range of different standing cutters for cutting and creasing our Presentation Folders. Each one has an F code to identify the shape e.g. F2.
When you look at the Presentation Folder templates, you will notice that many of the shapes are available with six variants: one with no capacity, one with 2mm capacity and one with 4mm capacity to hold A5 leaves and one with no capacity, one with 2mm capacity and one with 4mm capacity to hold A4 leaves.
Of the popular Presentation Folder types, most have a "two panel" format, so the pocket is on the right or both the right and left inside pages. We also offer one Presentation Folder design which has a "three panel" format, so the insert leaves sit in the middle of the folder – as with all our Presentation Folders, this is available to hold either A5 or A4 insert leaves.
Folder Capacity – this is referred to as a spine when ordering
If your Presentation Folder will only be used to hold the equivalent of ten sheets of 80gsm copier, it will not need a gusset (spine) to give it "capacity" (a gusset is created by a pair of creases a few millimetres apart). If your Presentation Folder needs to hold the equivalent of between ten and twenty sheets of 80gsm copier paper we recommend a 2mm gusset (spine). For contents equivalent to between twenty and forty sheets of 80gsm copier, please select a 4mm gusset (spine).
Two Panel Presentation Folders
Three Panel Presentation Folders
We have a number of non-standard folder shapes available, if you can find one that matches your requirements, you will be able to use the standing cutter at no extra cost.
Use your own Bespoke Folder Design
Select this option if you would like your Folder cut and creased to a shape which is not in our Popular or Extended ranges. The first time you order a new shape you will need to pay for a new cutting forme; if you agree to share the cutter with other customers, the cost of the cutter will be halved.
- Enter the dimensions of an imaginary rectangle into which your flat folder shape will fit.
- If you have ordered this shape before, please enter the previous job number. If you do not know the number, just type Not Known in the box.
- If you have not ordered this shape before, you will save 50% of the cutter cost if you answer "No" to the question "Folder forme design exclusive to you?"
Choose from 280gsm gloss art, 280gsm silk art or 450gsm matt art board.
No lamination, gloss lamination and matt lamination on one or both sides are available. We strongly recommend that you laminate the outside of your folders to prevent cracking, especially if the printed image continues over creases in the folder. Gloss lamination is cheaper than matt lamination and , obviously, no lamination is cheaper than gloss lamination.
Litho and Digital Printing
If you only require a small quantity of Presentation Folders, Digital Printing is cheaper than Litho Printing – as the quantity increases, Litho Printing becomes much cheaper than Digital Printing. Digital Printing also allows you to have different artwork on every copy.
Our Presentation Folders are supplied flat with interlocking flaps or with double-sided tape applied, so you can assemble them as you use them. If you would prefer that we assemble them for you, please select this option which is below the price table.
Business card slots in your Presentation Folder
All our Presentation Folders for A4 inserts can be ordered with business card slots. You will see this option below the price table.
If you would like your Presentation Folders to look even more stunning, why not have them digitally embossed? Digital Embossing is available in low lift or high lift and can be applied to one or both sides of your Folders. When you select Digital Embossing, the figures in the price table will automatically update to include the additional cost. For further information, please see our Digital Embossing information page.
