Folding formats & Terminology

Folding is an integral part of the print finishing process and is used commonly on leaflets, brochures, folders, broadsheets, flyers, business cards and invitations to name a few.

From a maximum sheet size of SRA1 (640x900mm), we are able to produce a wide range of folding combinations, folding down to a minimum size of 50mm x 75mm. It is also possible to add crasing and perforation with certain types of fold, ideal for return slips and tear off sections.
