FAQ- Folding

What are the different types of folding options?

Half Fold
This type of fold is mainly used for brochures and postcards. It is constructed by folding a sheet of paper in half once, making four panels (two front and two back).
 
Tri-Fold This fold is commonly used for mailing and brochures, with the paper being folded into thirds. After folding, it consists of six panels (three front, three back).
 
Z-Fold The "Z" style offers an advantage for multi-page letters to be collated and inserted for mailing. It is made by folding the paper twice (in zigzags) creating six panels (3 front, 3 back). 
 
Double Parallel Fold

Parallel Roll Fold
This fold is created when paper is folded inward multiple times as if you are "rolling up" the paper with folds. It consists of 4 panels.

This fold is made by folding a sheet of paper in half, then folding it into thirds in the opposite direction.
