Tri-folds or 3-panel brochures
In trifold printing , the "tri" prefix refers to a 3 panel folding leaflet ; that is, the leaflet is folded by 2 imaginary lines in a vertical direction, which originates the 3 mentioned panels.
Trifold printing is one of the most widespread advertising actions. Trifolds provide a very good relationship between practicality and the volume of information they may contain. This fact contributes to making your investment in advertising more profitable.
The 2 most common ways of folding a trifold brochure are classic trifold and "Z fold". When placing your order we do not make a distinction between them. However, when you start designing the trifolds, you do have to take into account the type of folding as page and panel sizes may slightly change depending on the folding type. Therefore panel sizes on the PDF file to be printed have to correspond to the folding type.
Classic trifolds and Z folds
In classic trifolds the right panel (seen from its inner side) folds to the left. One variant is the so-called asymmetrical trifold, in which the panel folded to the left is at least 10 mm shorter than the other two. Z folds, also known as fanfolds, are folded in zig-zag.
Custom trifold printing: the magic of variable data
In our online store you can make each one of your trifolds unique. Thanks to the VDP (variable data) technique, when printing trifolds you can print any number of variables or fields you want: the recipient's name, postal address, a password to access a specific area of your website... and so on. In this way, the recipient perceives that he is receiving a personal treatment and feels closer to the products and services you offer. Something to be thankful for in a so massified society.
