8 Different Brochure Folding Styles

    Share this Post:

In the world of print and design, the word “brochure” can be a vague term. Brochures are mainly used to communicate product or service information, and are also commonly used to communicate event details. While the purpose of a brochure is the typically the same across the board, the style of the brochure however is not.

Most people (including myself before I worked in the print industry) think of an 8.5x11 tri-folded sheet when they hear the word “brochure.” While that’s not untrue, and this style is probably the most common, there are many other brochure folding styles that can be used.

Keep in mind the style of your brochure should be based on the content you want on it, not on what’s commonly used. Some styles may display your content or photos better than others. Use the style and fold that best suites the brochures content and break out of the norm. Not sure if you still need to use brochures in your marketing?
