Even in the digital age, businesses and organizations still rely heavily on printed paperwork to communicate some of their most important messages.
- Business paperwork
- Marketing materials
- Branded documents
- Technical data
- Material safety sheets
- Press releases
- Business quotes
Presentation folders are specially designed to keep all of these printed materials contained and organized, which makes them ideal for sales presentations, annual meeting reports, and even school projects. But there are literally thousands of presentation folder designs and layouts to choose from. So where do you start?
The first step to presentation folder design is to think about what will go in your presentation folder.
- Business card
Standard presentation folder designs are 9" x 12" in size and feature one or two inner pockets for holding papers, as well as a pre-cut business card holder slot. But if your presentation folder needs to contain other materials, such as a CD or DVD, you'll want to request a special pocket of sleeve specifically for that piece.
The second step is to consider your budget. This will help define the parameters of your presentation folder design, from substrate material and color options to texturing techniques like embossing and foil stamping.
Whatever your budget, be sure to select a material that will stand the test of time. Protective coatings and rounded corners will help your folders look their best as long as possible.
The third step is to choose a good printing partner. The right printing partner will help align your budget and your expectations for the finished project. The printer you choose should also be able to help you with any graphic design for your presentation folder. If your team will handle the presentation folder design, ask your printing partner if they have a template that you should use.
