What size is a standard presentation folder?
The folded size of a standard presentation folder is 9 x 12 inches, or 12 x 18 inches opened flat. It is designed to hold standard 8.5 x 11 inch sheets of printed material in the folder pockets.
Can I print non-standard presentation folder sizes?
Just about any custom size folder can be made. 6" x 9" and 4" x 9" folders are common mini-folder sizes, and legal size 9 x 14.5 inch folders are commonly produced and used in some industries, such as legal and financial, to hold standard 8.5 x 14 legal size paper.
Can I have a folder made from custom or specialty papers?
Yes, they can be made from most cover stocks including dull or matte stocks, either white or colored uncoated or textured stocks with linen, laid, felt or other special finishes, and various grades of recycled papers.
Can I have a pocket on only one side?
Yes, you can have one pocket on either the left or right side if you don't want the standard two pocket format.
Can I print on the inside of my presentation folder?
Yes, you can print any combination of colors, including black, PMS inks or full color on the inside of the folder.
The outside of the pockets are printed with the front and folded in, so two sided printing is not required for that.
What custom options are available for presentation folders?
Some of the many available custom printing and finishing options are die cutting, embossing, foil stamping, flood or spot UV coating, matte or gloss aqueous coating (included at no extra charge), PMS inks, Soft Touch® coating, increased capacity folders with spines, additional panels, custom pocket sizes and shapes, and more.
What type of slits can I get on presentation folder pockets?
Either or both pockets can have slits to hold a vertical or horizontal business card, a CD, mini-CD or DVD, or a brochure or other printed piece.
Can you insert items into my presentation folder for me?
Yes. We can print and insert a complete presentation kit and ship them completed to you or destinations such as trade shows or conventions, or mail them to specific individuals in a mailing envelope. Common inserts include sell sheets, flyers, brochures, catalogs and cover letters. Shrink wrapping is also available for extra protection during shipping and handling.
Can I have inserts stapled or glued into my folder?
Yes, a large brochure or catalog can be stapled into the spine for a classy and permanent product catalog or sales presentation with additional materials in the pockets.
Printed pieces, including notepads, can be glued into the inside of the folder.
