Brochure Printing


Brochures are advertising pieces mainly used to introduce a company or organization and inform about products and services.

The most common types of single-sheet brochures are the bi-fold (a single sheet printed on both sides and folded into half) and the tri-fold (the same printed sheet but folded into thirds). A bi-fold brochure results in four panels (two panels on each side), while a tri-fold results in six panels (three panels on each side).

Brochures are commonly printed full color on glossy paper, either 80# gloss text or for a little more quality-feel 100# gloss text.

Compared with a flyer (flat sheet with no folds), a brochure usually uses higher-quality paper, more color, and is folded. 

Helpful Specifications

You may select from the following papers:

  • 28# White Bond
  • 32# White Bond
  • 80# White Gloss Coated
  • 100# White Gloss Coated Text
  • 80# White Silk Coated Text
  • 100# White Silk Coated Text

Artwork with bleed will need a 1/8” (.125”) bleed on all sides.

For a standard single-sheet brochure, create a single PDF with two pages (both front and back artwork in a single PDF).

Especially for trifold brochures, go to the File Templates page, download the appropriate template, and follow the recommendations for placement of fold lines. Trifolds are not folded exactly in thirds.

For speed and consistency in producing your print job, we prefer high-resolution PDF files to native application files. Refer to the Files Specifications page for more file preparation information.

Document sizes are given as width (horizontal) by height (vertical). 8 ½ x 11 would be a standard letter size page in portrait orientation.
