Brochure Details:

  • Five paper stock choices

  • Full color printing on both sides, or one side only

For quickly informing customers of your company or product, a folded brochure is the perfect marketing tool. The format of a folded brochure provides a sleek look but the necessary space for all of the technical information your clients need. Unfold your story panel by panel so that customers can experience the benefits of your offer in an organized layout.

Plan to mail your brochures? Design an 8.5x11 sized brochure with a traditional tri-fold or the more unique Z fold. For a larger size, such as 14x8.5, choose a gate fold so customers can open the "door" to your offer. Make a big impact with an 11x17 sized brochure and a fun accordian fold.

One of the most appealing advantages of folded brochure printing is the variety of situations in which they can be used. Plan ahead when choosing the right fold for your brochure. A big size folded double-parallel style helps you stand out when used at trade shows, business conventions, or handed out in strategic locations or even in the office. Choose the look you need for your message and image, and you're sure to be a step ahead of the competition when you order folded brochures from PrintPlace.com.

Benefits and Uses of Folded Brochures

Folded brochures are one marketing item that no business can do without. Without a corporate brochure, you have no way of quickly informing customers of your company, product, or services. Check out these other great benefits of folded brochure printing:

  • Slim yet packed full of information
  • Easy to transport
  • Tells your story in parts as customers unfold the panels
  • Gives customers the information they need in a matter of seconds
  • Can be used in place of other expensive marketing media

 
With folded brochure printing, many marketing options are available. Of course, there are many instances when different brochure designs and messages are needed, but there are also many times when a single brochure can be used in a variety of situations. Here are some examples of situations in which your business can use a folded brochure:

  • Trade fairs
  • Business conventions
  • In the office
  • Brochure racks in hotel lobbies, restaurants, banks, or other appropriate locations
  • As a hand-out on the street
  • Sales meetings
  • In response to inquiries from customers
  • As a direct mail piece to update existing customers on new products or services


For the best results, design your folded brochure following some important design and layout rules. Take into account the type of fold you are using, as well as the size. For instance, a half-fold brochure requires breaking your information into 3 parts (the front and back panel, and the inside spread), while a tri-fold brochure needs to break information into 6 parts. Here are some tips for designing your folded brochure, no matter the format:

  • Use a compelling headline that makes an irresistible offer or lists an unbeatable benefit
  • Tell customers why they need the product (e.g. If you are tired of backbreaking yardwork...)
  • List those who use your product (e.g. Doctors use the hand lotion in their clinics)
  • Tell customers how the product or service will benefit them (e.g. Golf like a pro!)
  • Include the necessary technical information about the product
  • Use photos of the product in action
  • Break up long blocks of text using bulleted lists, columns, headings and subheadings, and an information box or two.
  • Limit font and color use to 2-4 different types and hues
  • Don't overcrowd the design; leave plenty of white space in the margins and surrounding text and images
  • End with a clear call to action (e.g. Call our customer service number or visit our website for more information)


As with any design, keep your audience in mind when choosing everything from the colors to the benefits you list. Also, make sure to use a folded brochure template so that your layout meets brochure printing specifications.
