Style Uses

There are a number of possible ways that you can design your presentation folder. When choosing your presentation template, consider how different sizes of folder can be used for different things. It helps to consider the following elements:

  1. What size is the literature to be distributed?
  2. Where will I be distributing the literature?
  3. What is the most effective use of folder space?

Will your literature primarily be legal sized? Are you handing out smaller, custom made brochures? Business cards? Letter sized paper? Are these loose papers or a report? Knowing what you are going to be putting in your presentation folders will help you choose the right template. Remember, no matter how nice your customized presentation folder looks, the effect won’t be as good if you have paper hanging out of the top, or if the paper is lost inside.

The Folder Store offers the following sizes of presentation folder so that you can choose which one will work best for your needs:

  1. Letter Sized Presentation Folders (9″ x 12″)
    These presentation folders are the ones that come to mind when most people think about traditionalpocket folders. This size is perfect for standard sized paper, or for standard sized packets of information. They are slightly larger than the paper so that there is enough room for the papers, and also includes an aesthetically pleasing margin. Letter sized folders come with two pockets, reinforced or not reinforced, or one pocket on the right hand side.
  2. Legal Sized Presentation Folders (9.5″ x 14.5″)
    These presentation folders are the right size for any legal-sized documents (8.5″ x 14″), which will be unattractive and can get ruined if they are placed in letter sized presentation folders. If you are printing information on larger paper, for whatever reason, you may also want to choose legal sized folders. These folders also have the option of a .375″ spine so that the folder will be able to hold even more information.
  3. Small Sized Presentation Folders (4″ x 9″ or 6″ x 9″)
    These smaller presentation folders are perfect for a variety of uses. They are the right size for folded contracts, for example. They are also the perfect size for brochures, or any information that is folded into thirds. Small presentation folders are also better for business cards, tickets, certificates, or for notecards. You do not want to include these smaller items in larger presentation folders, because then the folder is disproportionate to the information, producing a negative “is that all I get?” effect. You will give a much better impression if the size of the folder is matched to the size of the literature inside.
  4. Report Covers (8.75″ x 11.25″, 9″ x 12″, or 8.75″ x 11.375″)
    Report covers are designed to give instant access to report-based materials. Report covers can be letter sized or legal sized. The 8.75″ x 11.375″ option also has tabs on the spine so that you can staple reports. Having a customized report cover is an incredibly classy and highly powerful way to make a statement about the efficiency and professionalism of your company or organization. Report covers are also perfect for companies who develop custom material for a particular client, like taxes, personal financial plans, real estate proposals, etc.
  5. File Tab Folders (9.75″ x 12″)
    These file tab folders are excellent for organizational purposes. If you want your client to be filing the information, or if the literature is of a type that will be filed away, whether financial or legal, then you will want to provide your clients with customized file tab folders so that they can easily find the information in their filing system.

The Folder Store offers all of these different templates so that you can tailor your presentation folder to fit your needs. The other steps of the customization process are likewise designed to take into account your situation and the potential uses of your presentation folders. The Folder Store’s unique online design and ordering process puts all of the paper, template, color, and printing options in front of you so that you can get the best product for your company at a fantastic price.
