- Folder Printing
A folder is a great way to showcase your company’s image. You can use them for in-house reasons or as promotional folders for your clients. With folder printing by PrintFirm, you can be confident of consistent quality at a reasonable cost.
We carry standard-size pocket folders and mini folders. All of our folders are printed on durable 14-point card stock and have an option for a glossy UV coating on the front or both sides. Our UV coating offers protection against dirt and moisture. You can choose a non-UV coating that has a matte appearance. Folder printing options include printing on the cover and pockets only or added printing on the inside. Our standard-size folders measure 9” x 12” and include a complimentary business card slit that can be placed on the right side of the folder, the left side, or both sides. Our mini folders measure 6” x 9” and have the same business card slit options as the standard-size folder. Our website drop-down menu includes a few extra options for the mini folder. A pocket can be placed on the left, right, or both sides, and there is an option for a CD/DVD slit in those locations.
You can upload your own print-ready design to our website. We accept all the popular graphic design file formats such as PDF, AI, and TIFF. We also have pre-made design templates for all of our folders. This will save you time during the design process. If nobody in your organization is skilled at graphic design, you can select “custom design” when you place your order.
PrintFirm’s team of talented in-house graphic artists will create a unique design for you. You have the option to send our artists any proprietary graphics or text and we will incorporate them into the design.
With any uploaded images for folder printing, we recommend a minimum resolution of 300 DPI (dots per inch). Lower resolutions may appear to be good enough quality on your computer screen, but once they are printed out, the result is typically a fuzzy mess. Use caution when adapting images found online because they are generally low resolution. To check the DPI of an image, open the file in a reputable graphic design program and view the file details.
It’s not a good idea to crowd your folder design. A folder should have plenty of whitespace (area without design) to maintain a professional appearance. Avoid overly fancy fonts. A folder that is difficult to read should not be the goal.
PrintFirm can be your one-stop for folder printing. If you ever need to communicate with our customer service department, we are confident they have the temperament and knowledge to serve you well.
