This online printing calculator will help you estimate the cost of presentation (signatory) folder printing. To calculate the cost of folder printing, please, input the parameters needed in relevant fields. The calculator will render results for both simple folder types (without pockets) and more complex, one-piece ones where folders are printed on one whole sheet followed by die cutting. As soon as you press the 'Calculate' button, in the right-hand half-window you'll see the cost of the whole circulation, per-copy cost and the weight of the whole circulation.
If you wish your folder to have an exclusive design, you may order creating a custom folder artwork from our designers. To do so you just need to check the calculator's 'Design artwork' field.
Before we make folders you'll have an opportunity to choose a folder design, the final version with your comments will be accepted for printing.
Printing presentation (signatory) folders
Folders have traditionally been a part of corporate image. Whether this is your company's presentation or participation in an international exhibition, professional seminar, your folder will always reflect your company's image, your signatory style, that's why it must always be vivid, nice and recognizable. And this is why your folders must always have a top design, their quality also being as high.
There are three basic signatory folder designs, let's have a look at their details.
One-piece folders are cut from one sheet together with all pockets and holes needed. After printing they need manual assembling. This is the most popular corporate (signatory) folder design for seminars, conferences, exhibitions, etc.
Folders with glued pockets: a spread A3 sheet with inside glued-on pockets for presentation papers, business cards, etc.
Folders without pockets: the simplest folder variant used to award certificates of merit, speeches, conference reports, etc.
The 215x307 mm trim size of conventional signatory folders is used with an intention to cover the standard 210x297 A4 sheet.
The lead time for folder printing is 4-6 days following the artwork approval depending on the complexity of the post-print finishing.
