Trifold folding types
Specify in the order remarks the kind of folding you want for your trifold...
Classic trifold requires the right panel to be 2 mm smaller than the other 2 panels, to allow it to be folded inward.
In this case the three panels must be the same size. In the case of an A4, divide the total width (29.7 cm.) into 3 equal parts, that's 9.9 cm. each panel. The cover and the back cover, then, are not next to each other, but in opposite sides.
Any trifold 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.

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.
First of all, when starting to design it is necessary to consider whether the folding type will be classic or "Z".
Let's suppose you have to design a 10x21 cm classic tri-fold. In this case, the document's flat size should be 29.8 x 21 cm. Panel sizes must be: 9.8 cm. + 10 cm. + 10 cm. (outer side) and 10 cm. + 10 cm. + 9,8 cm. (inner side). That is, the panel that gets "wrapped inwards" has to be 2 mm. shorter than the other two. If we are talking about an asymmetrical tri-fold, the wrapping panel must be at least 10 mm smaller than the front and back cover panels. That is to say, the wrapping panel cannot be between 3 and 9 mm shorter than the front and back cover panels. On the other hand, if the folding type is accordion ("Z" or zig-zag), the document's open size must be: 30 x 21 cm. and panel sizes should be: 10 cm. + 10 cm. + 10 cm. + 10 cm. In short, in Z folds all panels have to be the same size.
When it comes to printing trifolds, it is important to take into account the different panel sizes when you start your design. Design items that match the width of a panel have to be precisely adjusted to the imaginary folding lines.
The bleed area around the document must be 3 mm wide, and the elements that must bleed should also extend 3 mm beyond the page edges.
It is advisable to respect a safety margin of 3 to 5 mm around the 4 page edges, in which no element should be placed (other than those that extend out of the page).
Image resolution of pictures and logos must be high enough as to ensure a quality reproduction.
