June 17, 2015 · Print This Article
When designing your own presentation folder, there are a few design guideline to follow to ensure you don’t end up with a poor job. If you are creating a presentation folder to impress the visitors to your company, then a badly designed one somewhat defeats the point. It is crucial to plan the design as you do not want to get 5000 printed only to realise you have misspelt an integral part of your company’s URL address, or something of the sort. Therefore, be sure to follow these tips to make sure this does not happen.
Be sure to plan in advance
Be sure to know exactly what will be going into the folder. Both the size and the amount of items which you want to include are of great importance here, as this will determine both the length of your entire folder as well as the width of your gutter in the spine.
Follow the overall theme of your business
Your folders need to match the feel of your entire company. If your colour scheme throughout is gunmetal and charcoal, you don’t really want your presentation folder embossed in hot pink with lavender finishes. Understand the look of your company and be sure to emulate that.
Think about the images you will use
Firstly, ensure the images you choose to portray on your presentation folder tie in to your company’s general feel. Secondly and very importantly, do not use low res small stock images you have found on the internet. These will almost indefinitely pixelate when you enlarge them to fit across the folder, leaving it looking like poor workmanship and unappealing.
