How are folded brochures made?
Perfectly folded brochures start with preparation. Once we receive your brochure artwork we double check alignment as well as complete our standard prepress checks for resolution, color, fonts, and more.
Depending on order quantity and design requirements (PMS colors, foil, varnishes, etc. ) your folded brochure will either be printed on our HP Indigo 12000 or with our UV Offset presses.
Once printed, your flat piece will be trimmed down to its final flat size, following the designs crop marks. Flat brochures are then prepped for scoring and folding.
Scoring and Folding
After trimming, your brochures will be folded. For brochures printed on heavy stock, folds are scored first to prevent ink from cracking and resulting in a higher-quality and longer lasting finished folded brochure.
