When your ready to print your pocket folders, please let us know that you've used one of these templates and you'll save hundreds in custom die-cutting costs as well as speeding up production time.
To lay out a pocket folder, use one of our layout templates. Content on the pockets should be upside down due to how the folder will fold after it is cut. Also, bleeds should only be set on the outside edges of the piece and must be .125” (1/8”) in size, but the page size should be defined as the final trim size.

How are pocket folders made?
Perfect pocket folders start with preparation. Once we receive your folder 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 pocket folders will either be printed on our HP Indigo 12000 or with our UV Offset presses.
Cutting & Scoring
Once printed, your pocket folders will be trimmed and die-cut to your exact design. Scoring prior to folding helps prevent ink cracking resulting in a higher-quality and longer lasting finished folder.
Folding & Gluing
Finally your pocket folder will be completed by folding into shape and applying hot glue. With the proper preparation this is done in one fluid step. Check out this video to see this in action!
