4-panel fold types.
Mention in the order comments the folding you prefer for your quadrifold...
4-panel Roll Fold
It follows the same principle as the 3-panel roll fold: inwards-folded panels must be consecutively 2 mm shorter, i.e. for example: Closed size: 10 x 21 cms. Flat size: Cover=10 cm + Back cover=10 cm + Next panel=9.8 cm + Next panel=9.6 cm.
As in a Z-fold, in the case of the accordion fold all the panels have to be the same size.
Double Gate Fold
A double gate fold requires the inwards-folded panels to be 2 mm smaller than the other 2 panels, to allow them to be "wrapped". If they were not smaller, the folding could not be carried out.
Double Parallel Fold
If the fold is double parallel, all four panels are the same size. This is consistent with the concept that this type of folding is actually a bi-old + another bifold, and in a bifold panels are always equal in size (unless it is an asymmetric bi-fold).
Any 4-panel fold order you make with us includes a basic review of the files to be printed, but if you want we can offer you a professional review, of greater scope and level of detail.

Discover why printing 4-panel folds can be a profitable marketing decision...
Quadrifolds are 4-panel brochures. Therefore, they have three folds.
Printing quadrifolds is a good decision when it comes to spreading your message. 4-panel folds can be folded in several ways and allow us to contain a good volume of information... in short, they are extremely versatile.
We can distinguish 3 fundamental types of folding: a) roll fold; b) double parallel; c) accordion. In the case of roll folds, if you look at the quadrifold's inner side once it is open flat, the two panels on the right are folded inwards, to the left. In the case of double parallel folding, first we fold the leaflet in half (as a bi-fold), and then again in half. In the case of accordion folding, the panels are folded in zigzag.
In addition to these types of folding, there also exists the so-called double gate fold, to which we specifically dedicate another section in our online store.
When making the graphic design, it is necessary to bear in mind which type of folding will be applied to the quadrifolds.
Depending on whether it is a roll, a double parallel or an accordion fold, the panel sizes vary, so attention must be paid to this issue.
There exist several kinds of 4-panel folds...
In Roll Folds, the front and back cover panels are of the same size, but the two panels that fold inwards should be shorter. Specifically, the panel next to the back cover (which we will call "wrapping panel 2", should be 2 mm. narrower, and the outer panel (which we will call "wrapping panel 1"), should be 2 mm. shorter than the "wrapping panel 2", in other words, 4 mm. less than the front and back cover panels.
Double Parallel Fold
If the fold is double parallel, all four panels are the same size. This is consistent with the concept that this type of folding is actually a bifold + another bifold, and in a bifold panels are always equal in size (unless it is an asymmetric bi-fold).
In the case of an accordion fold all the panels have to be the same size. If a quadrifold's size is 10 x 21 cm, the 4 panels should measure 10 cm. When designing quadrifols folded into an accordion, it is necessary to bear in mind on which panel to place the cover and on which panel to place the back cover. Specifically, looking at the external side, the cover corresponds to the panel on the right, whereas the back cover is the panel on the left.
When designing 4-panel folds, you'll have to create a 2-page document (one page for the outer side and one for the inner side) in your desktop publishing software, each of them being the size of the quadrifold flat open. The bleeding area must be 3 mm, and the elements that are going to bleed off must extend 3 mm from the page edge.
We recommend not to place close to the page edges any design element that are not going to bleed off. It is advisable to leave a safe area between 3 and 5 mm. around the page, on all 4 sides, free of such elements.
The resolution of logos and images must be high enough to ensure a quality reproduction. When printing quadrifolds, it must be considered that first of all it is necessary to make a good impression on the recipient, your potential customer. Therefore, the overall quality of the images must be correct.
