Trade Printing UK's fantastic oversize A4 Presentation Folders are great to present your quotes, tenders, estimates, training materials and samples professionally. The printed Presentation Folders are a cost-effective way to market your business too and ensure your quotation or tender documents are presented to your potential clients in as professionally-printed way as possible.
We have two different types, the first is our Starter Presentation Folder which are great for 50 - 200 copies, if you only need a relative few to get your started. Printed on a premium 350gsm Silk Artboard card, this oversized A4 printed Folder contains a single inner pocket glued into the inside right page and includes a pair of business card slits as part of the Presentation Folder's die-cut forme. We have options to either Matt Laminate or Gloss Laminate which adds an extra level of polish and you can be guaranteed that our Presentation Folder will fit perfectly in a standard C4 printed envelope (which Trade Printing UK can print for you as well!).
The other type of Presentation Folders that we produce is our longer-run litho-printed (big printing presses!) Deluxe Presentation Folders, again in oversize A4 format. With using the bigger printing presses we thus have a bigger sheet size to work with (compared to just SRA3 with the digital Starter Presentation Folders), meaning we can have two proper interlocking flaps (the job is supplied flat) utilising both a standard spine and an extra-capacity 5mm gusset spine when you need to incorporate more inserted pages of print or samples etc. for your clients. We also print these Presentation Folders on premium 350gsm Silk Artboard card and again you've got some premium options of either Matt lamination or Gloss lamination for that extra special, bespoke touch.
We have professional Adobe Illustrator Templates available (with the die-cut forme for the litho-based Deluxe Presentation Folders, so you can design (or let your professional graphic designer use it) to produce your professional artwork. Both types of printed Folder include FREE delivery within the UK and Ireland via Parcelforce. 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.
Why do I need a printed A4 Presentation Folder for my business?
Historically, smaller SME businesses are at a big disadvantage to bigger companies especially when making presentations or business proposals to win business; the big companies all have slick, luxury "litho" Deluxe presentation folders that are cost effective when ordered at bigger quantities, especially of 500 or more.
Well now with the advent of our wonderful short-run digital Starter Presentation Folders, smaller SME businesses finally have a chance to compete on the same level and you won't have to buy any more quantity than you really need. They are especially ideal for quantities starting from only 50 to 200 copies, thus we're aware, as a leading UK trade printer and UK-based printing company who specialise in oversize A4 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 get the business in the first place; then later on your company can upgrade to the longer run luxury Deluxe Folders / "Litho" Folder range that we produce for the print trade, to avail of the extra finishing options available.
What are the differences between the various types of Presentation Folders?
We have two types of Folder - the short-run, cheap Starter Presentation Folder range which are budget printed Folders with a single, glued-in Flap. They are printed Full Colour on a premium quality 350gsm Silk Artboard (other printing companies often print on a flimsy 300gsm board, which will not make your company look as up-market as with our superior Trade Printing UK product).
Our longer-run, Deluxe Presentation Folder range would be more suitable for quantities of 250 upwards and Trade Printing UK's competitive pricing is great highly competitive within the 250 to 5000 range and it is that printed Folder sector that we focus on.
As a leading UK trade printing company who believes in personal service, the superior top-end luxury of our Deluxe folders is the natural choice of many of our blue-chip and PLC corporate clients such as Mercedes-Benz
, Ryobi, Lookers and other discerning corporate companies. We also print these on our premium, top-class, deluxe 350gsm Silk Artboard (which are professionally creased and supplied flat ready for you to assemble yourself as necessary, thus saving office space at your end whilst in storage), and with the added benefit of printing on much bigger sheet sizes on the professional litho printing presses, we can give you aesthetically pleasing vertical and horizontal flaps, the bottom horizontal flap includes a bonus pair of business card slits to put your personal details in with your presentation or business proposal - a main use for your printed Folder. Bottom line - our printed Folder will all look very slick to your client and of course making you look very slick to your client! Just imagine securing a contract or tender just because your professional business image looks better than a rival company. That's what Trade Printing UK can help do for your business.
Finishing options for both our cheap Starter Folders and premium full-colour Deluxe Folders
There are two separate options with our cheap Starter Folders range - unfinished 350gsm Silk Artboard, or gloriously luxury Matt Lamination (one or two sides) for that extra up-market touch.
With the premium full-colour Deluxe Folders, Trade Printing UK mostly use one of two types of shaped die-cut formes (both having gorgeously curved, vertical and horizontal interlocking flaps); we can then either laminate your A4 Custom-Printed Folder on one side (or two by request) with refined deluxe luxury of Matt Lamination, or with the in-your-face shine of Gloss Lamination. It's down to individual choice!
Things to bear in mind when designing artwork to print on Folder
With the cheap Starter Folder product, a large area of a single, solid dark colour doesn't really work that well on digital presses, although there are a few workarounds that can do an acceptable job of it by adding a subtle, virtually invisible "noise filter" over the solid dark colour of the Starter Folder.
On our bigger "Litho" presses that the Deluxe Folder product is created on, a solid flat colour is easier to produce due to more pressure on the press, however you may still run the slight risk of partial banding, thus realistically dark, flat solid areas of colour are still best to be avoided.
We also have professional artwork A4 Folder Templates for our Standard Corporate Presentation 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 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 business tender document, 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.
