Presentation folders, also commonly known as corporate folders, are primarily used to keep files organised and professional. They are a great promotional piece for your business and offer a professional way to organise your marketing material to prospects and clients.
As with any marketing collateral or promotional item for your business, they can be designed with the look and feel that best reflects your brand. Additional embellishments are also available, that offer a higher quality finish including celloglazing, spot UV, foil and embossing.
Typically printed on a higher bulk and weighted card such as 350gsm or 420gsm artboard, presentation folders are die-cut then assembled to complete the finished product. Let’s take a further look at the options available:
The Print Group Australia’s graphic design studio can offer eye-catching designs for your business that will be sure to make a statement. The team can custom design your presentation folder as single or double sided print and set the features for any additional embellishments as required. Should you already have a design in mind, we can ensure your files are correctly set for print and prepared for correct die-cutting.
Presentation folders are a great example of the die-cutting process. Die-cutting is the process of cutting a piece of paper or material to a custom shape and size. It is created by using a sharp steel blade formed into a specific shape to cut through the paper stock. Presentation folders in particular, are die-cut so the folder inter-locks, creating the final finished product.
The Print Group offer a large variety of die-line templates to choose from to suit your needs. Whether you need a larger folder with a 5mm or 10mm gusset (spine) for the ability to hold more documents, or something that stands out from the crowd, we can assist.
Celloglazing your presentation folder not only offers it further protection, but really adds a professional touch to the final product. Available in either a gloss or matt cello glaze, single or double sided (outside and inside of the folder). We also offer uncoated presentation folders with no cello glaze if requested.
Spot UV illuminates selected text or design components of your print project that gleam and reflect light, giving your printed piece a subtle elegance that is very effective. Using spot UV with unique shapes and patterns can create great contrast and is a simple yet effective finishing solution that will help you stand out. This embellishment really makes a statement when used on presentation folders.
Foiling is a specialised technique whereby a thin film of metallic or foil is impressed onto a document using a die (or stamp). It produces a unique effect that makes the product shine and offers a level of sophistication on your printed material. Available in Gold, Silver and a variety of colours, they offer a shiny and lustrous finish to your printed product.
Embossing and debossing creates a stunning graphic element to a printed piece by allowing designs to be raised or depressed into paper. Using heat and pressure, a metal plate containing a design, pattern or text is pressed into paper forming a raised image (or Debossing creates a lowered image). The technique is often used in combination with foil stamping and alters the surface of the paper stock by offering a three dimensional or raised effect on selected areas.
