Die-cutted foldersAn ideal way to introduce your products and services is the folder.
A folder can keep all your materials as forms, documents, brochures, business cards and so on. Your foldes can be in any size or form, with one or two pockets plus a business card place, with a single or double fold, depending on the materials you would like to include.
There are varieties of folders:
Classic Design offers you one- or two-side printed, die-cutted folders, made by several paper types and weights. For the additional effects, we can add UV varnish, laminate, spot UV, gold or silver stamp and embossing.
To ensure high quality, we would need you to supply:
Suitable for printing, composite PDF in CMYK, or CMYK + Spot colors, without ICC profiles, passers, scales or any other signs. The resolution of the images must be 300dpi or higher. Layout must have an extention on all sides.

UV WARNISHING MATT/GLOSS/SPOT In this process printed area is covered with the special coating and is then exposed to the UV light. Photo-initiators within the coating react, creating a hard protective finish. Ingredients provide gloss or matt characteristics. It can be applied as an all-over coat or in spots to highlight a specific area. The varieties of effects that can be achieved are endless, when using different combinations of laminate, varnish and ink.
OVERCOATING MATT, OVERCOATING GLOSS
This is applied during the printing process varnish, like any other ordinary solvent-based ink. The varieties of over-coating varnish are usually colourless, but sometimes they are tinted to achieve a desired effect. Varnish can be applied as an all-over coat or in spots to highlight a specific area. It is available in glossy or satin finishes. The varieties of effects that can be achieved are endless, when using different combinations of varnish, paper, and ink.
LAMINATING GLOSS OR LAMINATING – MATT
Laminating is the process of applying a clear film to either one side or both sides of a printed document. Applying laminate provides protection to printed products that are handled frequently or may encounter moisture.
FOIL BLOCKING When a specific print area requires an elegant finish, it is easily accomplished using foil blocking (also named hot stamping when heat is applied). The process adhere the foil onto the area requiring the metallic effect. The result is a highly reflective image with a bright and dense metallic appearance. Foils can be used for logos, borders, titles or elegant accents for distinctive symbols, graphics, or lines.
DIE-CUTTING Die-cutting involves the use of metal dies constructed of knife-edge cutting blades formed into a pattern or die. The die is pressed into the substrate to produce the desired shape. Almost any shape can be created and applied to a diverse array of raw materials. Labels, envelopes, folders, cartons, and documents are only a few of the many products that can be die cut for added functionality.

WIRE STITCHING (SIDE STITCHING) Side wire stitching is generally for booklets or books that contain too many pages to be effectively saddle stitched. The sheets are bound on the side of the book. The staples are inserted from the front side of the book, through the pages, and are pinched closed on the back side of the book. Side wire binding does not allow the book to be opened as flat as a saddle stitched book and an extra allowance for the inner margin must be made for the stapled stub.
THREAD SEWING + PERFECT BINDING (SOFT COVERING) This method is most durable. The printed sheet containing individual book pages, called a signature, is folded, and assembled in the correct page order. After this, the signature is sewn together with other signatures. The sewn edge (spine) of the book is coated with glue. A cover is attached to the book and is held in place by the glued spine.
HARD COVERING A number of steps are required to complete a bound book. First, a large printed sheet containing individual book pages, called a signature, is folded and assembled in the correct page order. The signature is sewn together with other signatures. End-leaf papers are glued to the outside of the first and last signatures. The sewn edge (spine) of the book is coated with glue and a strip of gauze is wrapped around it. The heavy board covers are wrapped with paper, cloth, or other materials to form the final book covering. The book is attached to its hard cover by sticking end-leaf papers to the case. Final step is to insert the book into a hydraulic press to ensure that it dries properly and does not warp.
SPIRAL WIROBINDING A spiral binding consists of a continuous wire, which is coiled through evenly spaced holes that have been punched into the pages of a book. The spiral wire can be made of metal, plastic, or plastic coated metal. Plastic is available in a variety of colours, but the metal spiral has a limited colour selection. When the books are open, the pages lie flat, which makes spiral binding a good choice for training manuals, cookbooks, and calendars.
Catalogue/Publishers – An intriguing one-piece cover style that opens “in reverse”, creating a flat spine for identifi cation.
COVER WITH DUST JACKET The dust jacket (sometimes book jacket, dust wrapper or dust cover), is the detachable outer cover, usually made of paper and printed with text and illustrations. This outer cover has folded flaps that hold it to the front and back book covers. In addition to its promotional role, the dust jacket protects the book covers from damage.
ORIENTATION PORTRAIT/ALBUM This is the way in which pages is oriented for normal viewing. The two most common types of orientation are portrait (vertical), and album (horizontal, also named landscape). The specific definition comes from the fact that a close-up portrait of a person’s face and upper body, is more fitting for a photo, where the height of the display area is greater than the width, and is more common for the pages of books. Album or landscape, originally described artistic outdoor scenes where a wide view area is needed. Most monitors have a landscape display, while most documents are printed in portrait mode.
