What are common brochure fold types?

  • Accordion fold brochure:
  • It is folded in such a way that the folds are staggered. This is the most popular fold for brochures because it gives you the most amount of pages for your money. Perfect for a long product list or long descriptions.

  • Parallel fold brochure:
  • It has all the pages folded the same way which eliminates the staggered look. This is better for a very short list of products or descriptions.

  • Z-fold brochure:
  • It is folded at a Z-shape where the brochure opens outwards and upwards. This type of brochure can be issued in two different ways, one where the brochure opens outwards, and the other where the brochure opens inwards.

  • Tri-fold brochure:
  • It has two folds going in one direction and the third fold going in the opposite direction. This type of brochure is the most common and is perfect for small products and descriptions.

  • Half-fold brochure:
  • It has one fold that goes in one direction, and the other fold goes back towards the first fold. This is the most common way of folding a brochure and is perfect for most products and descriptions.

A brochure can also have a double parallel fold or double z-fold. These folds provide you with the same amount of pages as a regular parallel fold or z-fold, with the added benefit of being able to fold the brochure into a smaller square. Perfect for a small product list or a small area.
