Oversize A5 Standard Presentation Folders printed using Trade Printing UK's custom Presentation Folder templates
Trade Printing UK's amazing Standard "Corporate" Presentation Folders are a great next step if your company has to professionally present quotes, tenders, estimates, printed contracts, training materials and samples to compete against your competitors, and are ideal when your marketing budget allows for further customisation and premium features, thus our standard printed Corporate Presentation Folders are a cost-effective way to market your business ensuring your initial tender or quotation documents are presented to your potential or existing corporate clients in as professionally printed way as possible. Image affects company perception after all and it's about your company's image and professionalism that goes a long way to winning contracts. Another great use is for marketing and PR purposes such as multiple press packs to get your message or press release out there and get noticed by editorial teams; a great way to gain some free publicity within the media (MEDIA TIP: remember to include a CDR with your press release in Microsoft Word document with double-spaced paragraphs, along with high-resolution Jpeg images and logos, so the Sub-Editor can easily edit it).
Our Standard Corporate Presentation Folder product is a superb upgrade from our Starter Presentation Folder if you need to print more than 250 copies, but don't need the full oversize A4 printed folder, and are either going to enclose A5 flyers or fold your A4 stationery inside it to save cost. Trade Printing UK take great pride in printing on a premium 350gsm Silk Artboard card stock and this cheap (we prefer the term "awfully reasonable"), oversized A5, printed Folder contains two die-cut, interlocking flaps for strength (unfortunately there's no room for business card slits on this A5 version, only on the A4 Printed Folders). This can then be shipped in a custom C5 Printed Envelope via the Royal Mail, that you can also print your company's logo and address to further enhance your brand image. We have options to either Matt Laminate or Gloss Laminate the Folder, upgrading it to a "Deluxe" Folder and adding an extra level of polish. You can be guaranteed that our Standard Corporate Presentation Folder will fit perfectly into a standard C5 printed envelope, a speciality for Trade Printing UK as mentioned above.
Why do I need an A5 Standard Corporate Presentation Folder for my business?
Historically, smaller SME businesses are at a huge disadvantage compared to bigger companies especially when making tenders or business proposals to win business and smaller companies are normally forced to stay well within their limited budgets yet have to compete in the marketplace with the big companies, many of which already have slick, luxury "litho" Deluxe presentation folders that are cost effective when ordered at bigger quantities, especially for 500 copies or more.
We're aware, as a leading UK trade printer and UK-based Folder printing company who specialise in printed Folders and oversize Presentation Folders, that money makes money and that means you can put forward your quote, tender or business proposal to a selected range of clients to win that business in the first place; with a premium quality Corporate Folder you now have the option to upgrade further to Deluxe Presentation Folder gloss or matt-laminated range to avail of those gorgeous extra, custom finishing options that we have available.
As we said above, our longer-run, "Deluxe" Corporate Presentation Folder range would be more suitable for quantities of 250 upwards as Trade Printing UK's rock-bottom pricing is highly competitive within the 250 to 5000 range and it is that printed Folder sector that we focus on within the UK marketplace.
Finishing options for Trade Printing UK's Standard Corporate Presentation Folders
There are two separate "Deluxe" options with our Corporate Presentation Folder range - gloriously luxury Matt Lamination (one or two sides) for that extra special, extremely sophisticated, up-market touch, or we also have the sensationally shiny Gloss lamination for outrageously vibrant and deep printed colours.
Things to bear in mind when designing artwork for Presentation Folders
With Trade Printing UK's Standard Corporate Presentation Folders product range, a large area of a single, solid dark colour is not always advised over a large area (as slight horizontal banding can occur through areas of continuous solid colour. The colour and tone may vary slightly across the sheet too, although there are a few workarounds that can do a very acceptable job of it by adding a subtle, virtually invisible "noise filter" over the solid dark colour of your Standard Folder / Printed Folder. This is inherent in the Litho printing process and may happen in your Folder job depending on ink densities of the colours chosen. Your designer will also have to work with our in-house die-cut forme templates, so you or they will need to allow for the cutting forme itself. The die-cut forme has the potential to move by up to 1mm in any direction and bleed must be allowed on your Folder job to accommodate this anomaly. Also there may be slight Artboard white dust from the Platin die-cut machine especially where solid areas have been used although this is minimized with lamination option. Matt lamination is also liable to mark slightly. Colours you see on your computer monitor, inkjet or laser printer may vary slightly in tone and colour from what will be produced using our litho printing process of printing (presses vary between printing companies as well but rest assured your trade job will receive the utmost best attention by our press operators.
We also have professional artwork A5 Folder Templates for our Standard Corporate Folders, which will make it easier for your designers to set-up your own professional artwork. Or Trade Printing UK can set up your artwork for you. We charge our professional studio rates at £25 + VAT per half hour, and it all depends on your design brief.
Don't forget to include your company's printed QR Code on your Printed Folder
As printed QR Codes are becoming more and more popular within the UK, lots of UK companies are now adding their printed QR Code to their Folder artwork and stationery. That means when you send your Presentation Folder to your potential client with your tender, quotation or whatever if you have a printed QR Code somewhere on the stationery your client can use their Apple iPhone camera, Android camera or Blackberry camera to scan the QR Code into their smart phone immediately and then all your company details are already programmed in. Or if you need a specific YouTube video link within your presentation, make up a separate QR Code for that as well that can be scanned and viewed with a QR Code App on their Apple iPhone smart phone. A wonderful 21st century piece of marketing and communication.
