We print and deliver exceptional quality presentation folders that will work hard as ambassadors for your business or organization and amplify and communicate your messages across all contexts and spaces.

We are an offset printer, rather than a digital or print-on-demand service, so we must impose a minimum order quantity (MOQ). We’ve set ours as low as possible, at 100 units. But with offset printing, the higher the quantity you order in a single print run, the lower the cost-per-unit.

Presentation Folder Styles

Your choice of paper and any special touches will depend on the style and format of your presentation folder design. Given such a considerable array of choice, we’re happy to help you pick the best option for your needs. Here’s a helpful look at the most popular possibilities.

Our most popular presentation folder styles are:

Single pocket folder

Single pocket folder

The regular single pocket presentation folders have their pockets situated on the right side, with the standard height of the pockets at 100 mm. The pockets needn’t be square, we can shape them as you wish. Documents, reports, product booklets, flyers, and leaflets can all be inserted into these pockets.

Two pocket folder

Two-pocket folder

Another popular choice, the two-pocket presentation folder has two pockets inside the folder as the name suggests, with each of the pockets situated on either side of the page. We can put the pockets on the bottom or sides of the folder and we can also add slits to support business cards.

Three pocket tri-folder

Three-pocket tri-folder

This style has two folds instead of one, creating a back and two over-lapping wings somewhat like a typical tri-fold leaflet design but bigger. Both the back and each of the wings have a pocket.

Folder with a spine

Folder with a spine

Presentation folders with spines are ideal for when you must include a larger number of documents or brochures. Rather like a paperback book cover, these folders have a flat spine between the front and back, giving them more depth. If deep enough, this may also be a printable area to carry text and a logo, for example.

Fully customized folders

Fully customized folders

With this option, the sky’s the limit, as they say. Choose to make special shapes, die-cut, and metallic effects, gloss varnish; choose textured or colored papers; include special pockets and holders for business cards, pens, and corporate gift items; make the folders any size or shape you prefer.

We recommend that you laminate your folders as this will make sure they don’t tear and that the surface still looks good. You can laminate on one or both sides with gloss, matte, or soft touch lamination.

Presentation Folder Size Options

At QinPrinting, we offer a complete custom presentation folder printing service. We have digital machines which we use to prepare “hard proofs” to check for color and printing quality. But for the final print run we use our superior offset press. Offset printing gives you unbeatably professional-looking presentation folders with faithful color or black-and-white image reproduction and a noticeable price advantage over digital printing on longer print runs.

The most common and practical size for presentation folders is 9″ by 12″ (230 mm x 310 mm). They fit easily into a briefcase, for example, or into display stands, and happily accommodate A4 and legal papers.

While most of our customers choose standard sizes and folds, you can choose to fully customize your presentation folder if you like. Just remember that unusual custom designs will cost more and take longer to turn around than standard sizes because of the extra pre-press and setup work involved. But if you want it, and it’s physically possible, we will print it. It’s what we do!

Paper Options for Presentation Folders

Gloss, matte, and uncoated paper

You have many options for paper stock to print your presentation folders at QinPrinting. Most of the folders we print need to be quite robust and often have important photographic or other artwork elements incorporated into the cover design. So, we recommend 300 gsm / 200 lb gloss or matte cover paper as a standard because it has a high-quality finish which gives first-class image reproduction and is thick enough to offer good protection to the enclosed documents. But many other options are available, all of which could be good, depending on the details of your specification. For example, uncoated paper could be fine if your presentation folder needn’t last for a long time and has only a simple text printed on the cover. Here’s a helpful list of typical papers used for presentation folders:

Choosing paper for your presentation folders can feel confusing if it’s new to you, but our printing experts are always here to recommend the best paper selections for your design and your budget. And please ask us for paper samples. We’ll be happy to mail them to you.

Special Finishes, Lamination, and Foil Stamping

Your presentation folder represents your brand and so it must make a powerful and lasting impression. To make it “speak” above the noise of all the other common-or-garden folders doing the rounds at a conference or trade fair, for example, it must be eye-catching and distinctive. QinPrinting offers a complete range of finishing options to make your presentation folders uniquely attractive.

Among other options, the most popular choices include:

We can also incorporate a custom die-cut into your folder’s cover to increase its visual impact. With die-cutting, we machine-cut a shape out of the material with a sort of industrial cookie cutter. For example, to create a ‘window’ to the documents beneath the top fold or to make your company name or logo more striking. 

Presentation Folder Design and Artwork Tips

Whether you’re preparing your own artwork in-house or commissioning a professional designer to do it for you, it’s important to understand how to prepare the artwork and text for printing. You’ll need to allow for bleed zones, safety areas, trim lines, and borders, for example, and make sure that the resolution and the color space are correct. 


Export your files as vectors in PDF format for the best results. Our recommended software options for three-month calendar design are Adobe Illustrator or Adobe InDesign. These will also allow you to convert your color space from RGB to CMYK which you will need to do for offset printing.


If you can’t deliver vectors — say, if you’re exporting bitmaps from Photoshop — then make sure the resolution is at least 300 DPI. With vectors, you needn’t worry about resolution, but all other images must have a high definition to tolerate resizing without becoming fuzzy and “pixilated”.

3 mm bleed zone

You’ll need to add a “bleed zone” of 3 mm around all your photographic panels. A bleed is an extended zone at the periphery of your photo or other image, which falls outside the area that your finished panel will cover. Once we’ve printed your folders, we’ll cut them to the exact size needed for your chosen format. This “bit extra” gets cut off and makes sure that the finished image fills the sheet with none of it being lost.

trim line 5mm

Inside your bleed zone, don’t forget to mark the “trim lines”. These should be green and will define the final dimensions of the finished panel. Make sure that any necessary elements of your images stop at least 5 mm short of the trim line.

A competent graphic designer should understand the technical details and be able to set this up for you. But we’ll always manually check your files before going to press. While the responsibility for sending “print ready” files is yours, please don’t worry! We’ll be happy to “hold your hand” through the process, explain what’s needed, and liaise with your designer to make sure everything goes smoothly and you end up with a perfect print every time.

To learn more about preparing your artwork and layouts for printing, please check out our Prepress Artwork information page. Please ask us for a design template to use yourself or pass on to your designer. We’ll be happy to send you one. And if design isn’t your thing, we’ll create a design for you based on the images, logo, etc. that you provide. Just ask!
