Are you looking to create your own custom printed Z fold cards or design a unique K fold card?

If you’re looking to design your own folded cards, our helpful design tips below can help you out. If you’d prefer to leave the artwork to the professionals, take a look at our various design services.
Use the resources

Pick the right folded card
Make sure you pick the right folded card for your promotional product. Concertina folded cards provide one row, K folds offer two and Z folds reveal three rows- so pick the right product for you based on the amount of information that needs to be included. Choose between one cover and two covers (book cover) – whichever is best for your individual product.
Promote your branding
Make sure to display your logo prominently; if you choose a book cover (two covers – each bookending your product) ensure your logo and company branding appears on both of these. Consider using company messages as headers / footers in the pages, and make sure your font complements that found in your logo.
Choose colour carefully
With such small scale covers, too much colour can be overcrowding and unappealing. Try to limit your design to a maximum of 4 colours, all of which should complement and help draw the eye to your logo.
Add wow factor
Don’t forget- when creating a bespoke design for your folded cards, you can add a little wow factor with optional finishes. Choose from matt, gloss or soft-touch lamination, to add durability and luxury to your product. Why not add some coloured foiling or Spot UV for that touch of something extra special?
