Folding styles for leaflet distribution

Flyers for distribution Brochure delivery by door drop marketing will nearly always give a good ROI but do you know what  type of fold you are going for? You see, it depends on what the aim of the printed leaflet job is going to be; it can make a big difference and most people don’t realize that a good south west London and M25 distribution company can offer some good tips.

For a fairly cheap leaflet marketing campaign 130gsm paper is a good option, and fine for full colour photo reproduction.350gsm is like a thick glossy card and better for leaflet holders.

Some leaflet folding style tips for great door to door marketing and pamphlet delivery:

Tab Fold

This style has 1 fold line and 4 sides. Tab fold leaflets are available in flat sizes A3/A4 or in a5 leaflets. The tab can be a length of your choice. This is fine for leaflet distribution.
