With Paperjam’s $5.00 hard-copy proof, you won’t get any unexpected and costly surprises on an entire print run that you might get from an on-line printer.
A brochure is an informative paper document (often also used for advertising), that can be folded into a template, pamphlet or leaflet. Brochures are promotional documents, primarily used to introduce a company, organization, products or services and inform prospective customers or members of the public of the benefits. Compared with a flyer, a brochure usually uses higher-quality paper and is folded.
Unlike many quick print shops, our press is color calibrated routinely to assure accurate color representation. And… whether you are a novice to the printing process, or even a seasoned pro, our experts will gladly assist you with application color settings so that you achieve the brightest colors possible.
Our standard brochures are printed on high quality 80# text paper which has a nice page turning feel and also makes colors pop. Although heavier weights of paper are available, 80# text has an exceptional opacity so that images on one side can not be seen on the other.
Styles of Brochures
(also known as a half fold)
Best used for simple business presentations and are one of the most popular and widely varied brochure types around. They are usually intended for product presentations, catalogues, institutional introductions, tradeshows, corporate meetings, etc.
A Tri-fold brochure is one of the most common ways to fold, design and print a brochure. The most basic way to fold a tri-fold brochure is to fold the right panel inwards first, and the left panel folds inwards to sit on top of the right panel. Tri-folds end up with 6 panels to place information on that are almost the same size. Tri-fold brochures are easily accepted by clients, versatile and tempting to open; thus making them suitable for high-impact designs and great for most basic marketing campaigns.
The left and right panels fold inwards to meet in the middle resulting in six panels. Similar to a tri-fold with 3 front panels and 3 back panels, however the side panels are 1/2 the size of the center panel.
Consists of three zigzag folds with eight panels (3 parallel folds that go in opposite directions). Each panel of the accordion fold are the same size. Please keep in mind that the total length cannot exceed 19 inches.
Like a tri-fold, a z-fold has three panels; however, the right hand panel folds in the opposite direction so that it opens like an accordion in the shape of a “Z”
