Folder Size 

Presentation folders are in a wide variety of sizes. To choose a style that matches your particular marketing goal. For example, The difference between letter and legal size paper. Choose a folder with appropriate size. Smaller documents and objects such as key cards will require their own specially sizes. 

Pocket Size and Quantity

Pockets are available in many different types, including both horizontal and vertical orientations. Horizontal pockets are more traditional, while vertical pockets give you additional area for a design printed directly on the folder interior. Angled pockets are cut into a slanted shape that suggests motion and sleek elegance. Before choosing a pocket style, you may want to consider which one will display the most important areas of your documents. You should also consider the number of pockets you need. Too few, you'll end up cramming your materials into a space that can't support them. On the other hand, adding pockets that you won't use might be a waste of valuable design space. 

Slit Options

Presentation folders include the option of free brochure slits, CD/DVD slits, or business card slits. Be sure that the size and placement of chosen slits support the materials you plan to put inside. 


Presentation folders may have aqueous, lamination, or UV coating. Aqueous coating is "gloss" by default, to give folders a shiny, reflective appearance. It may also be "matte" to minimize reflectiveness, "satin" for a velvet-like effect, or "soft-touch" for a texture similar to suede. Lamination coating gives folders extra protection against tearing and staining. Ultraviolet (UV) coating offers little protection, but gives folders an extremely shiny and distinctive look. 

Imprint Method

Your printing options include offset PMS printing (which utilized pre-mixed ink), four-color process (which uses CMYK ink to create a veritable spectrum of color during printing), foil stamping (where metallic or non-metallic foil is applied to your folder) or embossing (which alters the shape of the folder itself for a textural effect).
