Tips on designing your own presentation folder

August 1, 2015 · Print This Article

Have you decided to create your own presentation folder? Well, to get the best result you have got to follow certain design procedures. 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 forward thinking

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.

Are you clear about your theme?

You want your folders 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.

Let the images you use reflect your company

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.

Use the best printers at all times

Finally, your last step which you need to be sure of is your choice in printers. An unprofessional printer can leave your folder looking unfinished and an eyesore.
