Frequently Asked Questions

Concertina fold printing is an affordable method if you want to organise information in a fun and easy-to-read way. We’ve taken the time to respond to some of our most frequently asked questions about concertina fold printing below, so scroll down for all our answers to your most common questions.
Costs. Concertina fold printing is a relatively affordable alternative to other forms of printing while also allowing you more room for text than a traditional leaflet. This means that you can get more for your money; when it comes to items such as menus, mini booklets or brochures, concertina fold printing is budget-friendly. The cost of your order will naturally be determined by the size of your order, but we offer cost-effective pricing models that allow you to order in bulk and pay less for more. Design. When it comes to concertina fold printing, the design and layout is going to play a key role in the effectiveness of the final product. After all, the advantage of this form of printing is that it allows you to condense lots of bite-sized information onto a small surface space – but being able to optimise this space effectively is key. Graphics. Materials created with concertina printing often rely on graphics and colours to grab attention and direct a user or customer towards important information. At Avenue, we work with designers and artists across the board who can help you create the best possible design without compromising on content.
Concertina printing is perhaps one of the most versatile forms of printing we offer at Avenue, with limitless opportunities for both personal and commercial use. For commercial purposes, you can use concertina fold printing for menus, leaflets, mini booklets, mini brochures, table talkers, throwaway printing, snail mail marketing, and more. You can even use concertina fold printing for destination maps or coupon booklets, as well as instruction booklets and venue booklets. You can also use concertina fold printing for personal purposes, such as children’s birthday invitations, wedding invitations, thank-you cards, and other creative greeting cards.
Concertina fold printing is a relatively affordable print method, as it doesn’t typically require special finishes and is easy to produce. However, it’s impossible to give an upfront cost, as the final price of your order will be determined by a number of supplementary factors. The most obvious factor is going to be the size of your order; the larger your order, the more you’ll end up spending. However at Avenue, we do offer cost-effective pricing on bulk orders. Other factors such as colour vs. black and white, the use of images, and the type of paper used for your order will impact the final cost. For a more detailed quote, you can contact one of our team directly and discuss your project specifications. The most important aspect though will be the actual flat size of the item and then how many folds are required. That will determine how your job will be manufactured which has a large bearing on final costs.

Aside from being an affordable print method for bulk orders, concertina fold printing comes with a wide range of other benefits:

  • Engaging. As concertina fold printing is often very image-focused, it’s much more engaging than a traditional open-out leaflet or booklet. You can use engaging images and graphics to capture the attention of customers while directing them to important information.
  • Versatile. While the space on a concertina fold isn’t limitless, you can still cover various different topics on the same product. The panels can be used to separate key information or different topics.
  • Flexible. Being both compact and flexible, a concertina fold is easy to transport or pop into a handbag, making it easier for customers or potential clients to hold onto. 
  • Creative. If you want to make a lasting impression, small details can go a long way. Using a concertina fold print – as opposed to a traditional leaflet or booklet – helps to demonstrate your brand’s creativity and ingenuity. 

One downside to concertina fold printing is that it isn’t the most durable. Due to its flexible, fold-out nature, it can’t be laminated. However, you can make your printed products more durable by adding a specific finish (such as glossy, matte, or silk) or by using thicker paper (too thick though….and it wont close neatly!). 

That being said, concertina fold printing isn’t usually used when creating printed products for long-term use, and this is reflected in its (relative) lower price. 

You can use any type of paper for concertina fold paper. If you’re not sure what type of paper to use, you can take a look at our in-depth guide here. The weight of paper is quite key for a good quality finish. Too thick and the brochure will spring open and not fold flat.
