A concertina fold, also known as a zig-zag fold, accordion fold or z-fold, is a continuous parallel folding of brochures and similar printed material in an accordion-like fashion, that is with folds alternatively made to the front and back in zig-zag folds. Because they do not nest (as in Letter Folds) panels can be the same size. Concertina folds resemble a Z or M or series of zigs and zags.
Types of Folded Leaflet Design
Folding pattern in which the folds are parallel and in the same direction, so that a kind of spiral is produced. The letter fold is a parallel fold. Two or more panels of the same width of the folded signature are folded around one panel. When the signature is folded twice, there are three panels on each side (six pages); with a tri-fold, the result is four panels on each side (eight pages). Also known as a spiral fold, trifold, brochure fold, business letter, C fold, roll fold and barrel fold.
Also known as a window fold.
In double parallel folds the paper is folded in half and then folded in half again with a fold parallel to the first fold. To allow for proper nesting the two inside folded panels are 1⁄32 to 1⁄8 inch (1 to 3 mm) smaller than the two outer panels.
In double gatefolds there are three parallel folds. The left and right edges of the paper fold and meet in the middle, without overlapping, along a center fold. The outer panels (the ones that fold in to the middle) are usually 1⁄32 to 1⁄8 inch (1 to 3 mm) smaller than the inner panels (the ones covered by the panels that fold in) to allow for proper folding and nesting.
