Gatefold Flyer Printing Tips
Firstly, before you design your gatefold flyer, please confirm which page would serve as the front cover and which as the back cover. It is important that the front and back covers are in the correct position after folding.
Secondly, whether you design a 3-part gatefold flyer or a 4-part gatefold flyer, make sure that you calculate the total width and then share that width to create similar individual part widths. Make sure that you keep an 8-15mm margin for each part after folding.
Thirdly, the common practice involves a gatefold flyer to be folded on the right side first, followed by the left side; however, you can customize this based on your preference. However, it is an important point to keep in mind as a reference of sorts.
Fourthly, most gatefold flyers use thicker paper. The choicest paper options include 200gsm, 250gsm or 300gsm gloss art paper or matte art paper. Therefore, we suggest that you also choose gloss lamination or matte lamination on one side or both sides. Otherwise, the folding lines will not look good, especially if you have a rich color background.
Next, we also provide die-cutting services for the flyer folding lines. Do not worry about your photo to be distorted or not connected after placing them across two pages. We will take care of that, and you have the liberty of designing what you like.
Finally, if you have used spot UV in your flyer, matte lamination needs to be done first. This is because spot UV looks shinier with matte lamination. For more surface options please check our Printing Guide.
