Card Folders

Card folder showing example in use

Details at a glance

Unbeatable presentation of your documents. Our card folders are available in A5 and A4 sizes, in two weights of card, depending on your needs. Your folder can be straightforward two-panel or a luxury three-panel if you need to incorporate a lot of detail.

Ten standard formats to choose from, or create your own. We keep cutting formes in stock for the templates shown below, but if none of them suit your needs exactly we can manufacture a forme to your precise specifications. There is a one-off charge for the forme, but we keep it for posterity so future re-orders of the same design will not attract the forme charge.

Lamination. Your card folder can be laminated on the outside with either a gloss or matt finish. We particularly recommend lamination for folders with large areas of dark colour, since unlaminated folders show up fingerprints more readily than gloss or matt laminated types.

Business card slots. A4 card folders can have slots cut to allow you to include a standard size (European 85 x 55mm or North American/Japanese 90 x 50mm) business card. The cuts can be located on the vertical or horizontal flap for portrait and landscape business cards respectively.

Standard styles (two panel folders)

Design templates for all of our most popular styles are available to download below. Right-click on the download link for the size and style of folder you wish to order, then select Save link as... or Save target as... to copy the PDF file to your computer. If you have any problems downloading templates, we can email them to you instead – please call 01457 778788 for help.

A gusset allows a folder to accommodate more sheets of paper. Whereas a folder with no gusset will typically hold around 10 sheets of 80gsm office paper, a 2mm gusset increases this to around 20 sheets, and a 4mm gusset to around 40 sheets.

Custom folder styles

We can produce folders to your custom design or replicate an existing folder. There is a one-off charge to manufacture the cutting forme required, which varies based on the complexity of your design. Please contact us on 01457 778788 for details.

Assembly

Card folders are supplied flat, but can be assembled if required (at extra cost). Please bear in mind that assembled folders are bulky, and our carriers may adjust your delivery charge to reflect volume rather than weight – please ask us for details.

Turnaround time

Card folders are despatched within 5 working days. Please allow additional time if you require assembly, or for the manufacture of custom folders.

VAT guidance

Card folders are standard rated for VAT. If however they are to be supplied as part of several print jobs which will together comprise a single package (eg. a card folder containing loose leaves which is complete in itself) then it may be eligible for zero-rating. Please contact us on 01457 778788 if you think this may apply to your project.
