You can choose from a variety of half-folds. Among them, we highlight...
When printing half-fold brochures, it is important to work with the source document as a double-page spread.
For example, if we have a diptych format 21 x 21 cm. open and 10 x 21 cm. closed, in our desktop publishing program we will set up a document with 2 pages 21 x 21 cm. To limit the two panels of the brochure, it is enough to place a guide in the center of the document. In the first page we will layout the inner spread, while in the other page we will layout the outer spread.
Special attention should be paid to the outer spread, since the panel on the left corresponds to the back cover, while the panel on the right corresponds to the front cover. Likewise, in the document it is necessary to set a bleeding area of 3 mm., and all those elements that have to bleed out from the edge, must extend 3 mm. from the limits of the page.
It is convenient to leave a safety margin between 3 and 5 mm. around the 4 sides of the page, in which shouldn't be placed elements that don't have to be printed in the edge.
When printing half-folds, it is necessary to take into account the width of the panels in order to place the different elements . It is important to respect the imaginary folding line.
Furthermore, the images' resolution (photographs and logos) must be adequate to ensure a high quality reproduction, avoiding the undesirable effect of "pixelization".
