Gate-fold Flyer Printing Tips
The first, before you design the gate-fold flyer, please confirm which page is the front cover and which page is the back cover. After folding, the front cover and back cover should be in the correct position.
The second, whatever you design 3 parts gate-fold flyer or 4 parts gate-fold flyer, please calculate the total width, then to share each part width. Please keep the 8-15mm margin for each part after folding.
The third, in common, gate-fold flyer is folded right side first, then folded left side. It depends on your request. Before you design gate-fold flyer, please think of this point.
The fourth, most of the gate-fold flyers are thick paper. The paper is 200gsm, 250gsm or 300gsm gloss art paper or matte art paper. So we suggest you do gloss lamination or matte lamination one side or both sides. Otherwise, after folding, the folding line looks not good, especially the rich color background design.
The next, we do die-cutting for the flyer folding lines. After folding, if the photo is across two parts, it also can connect well. Don’t worry about this. You may design what you like.
The last, if the flyer is with spot UV, we need to do matte lamination first. Because the spot UV looks shiny on matte lamination. More surface options, please check printing guide.
