Printing Terminology

With Gusset Diagram
Without Gusset Diagram

Gussets
Rather than a single fold, a gusset creates two folds (4mm apart). When a gusset is applied to the flaps on a presentation folder, the pocket size is increased thus allowing more documents to be inserted. There is no additional cost associated with choosing a template with gussets.

  • Presentation folders with a 4mm gusset can fit 26 A4 pages on 150gsm gloss artpaper in their pockets.
  • Presentation folders without a 4mm gusset can only hold 9 A4 pages on 150gsm gloss artpaper in their pockets.
Business Card Slit Diagram

Business Card Slits
All of our A4 presentation folders contain one set of landscape business cards slits.

Business card slits can hold one business card (86 x 54mm to 90 x 55mm in size).

Artwork Requirements

Our guideline templates must be used to create ALL presentation folder artwork. Guideline templates can be found by clicking here and selecting the style you require. Before using our templates, please read the read me file first.

In addition to using our templates, please take into account:

  • Artwork must contain 5mm of internal and external bleed.
    • This means all graphics, backgrounds, etc must extend 5mm past the trim edge, including flaps (shown by the solid red line in the diagram below).
    • This also means, all text, logos and important graphics must be kept at least 5mm in from the trim edge of the artwork (shown by the dashed red line in the diagram below).
    • We do not advise text or important graphics be placed on or over a fold, gusset or flap.
  • Each A4 folder contains one set of business card slits. We do not advise text or important graphics be placed on or over the business card slit area.
  • In our guideline templates, areas filled in blue are overlapping areas. These are areas where the folder locks together. Printing placed on these areas will be obscured when the folder is assembled.
