For BIG information in a small space, choose custom printed Concertina cards.
Combining the size of a portable pocket card with the printing space and satisfying fold-out experience of a folded leaflet, a concertina card makes for the perfect promotional handout or souvenir. Use them to display event programmes, festival lineups, mini product catalogues, sales coupons and more!
Concertina cards printing options
Each standard C fold card features a folded 80gsm paper sheet with a single row of panels, secured within a 350gsm cover as standard (see specification tabs for different paper weights). Choose from a book-style folded cover, a double-folded wrap cover, or single covers at each end of your concertina – take a look at our product images to see the cover styles available.
Choose from 3 to 10 pull out pages in a variety of sizes (credit card, pocket and postal). Design your own cards with our handy downloaded concertina card templates, or take advantage of our in house artwork services.
We provide concertina book printing on both sides for maximum space for your advertising and marketing communication. Choose from black and white and full colour printing.
And for an extra special touch, choose from our finishing options: Spot UV, foiling (we offer 10 colours) or optional lamination.
Alternative concertina card uses
A concertina booklet is the perfect pull-out leaflet for catalogues, information and programmes. Use them to provide new information on your latest offers and products.
However, you don’t have to employ your cards as concertina leaflets – why not use a free downloadable concertina card template to create something different? Concertina cards make for perfect theme park and tourist maps, health and safety information handbooks and even coupon booklets! Opt for perforated edges on your pages for ease of voucher or coupon removal.
You can also employ them as concertina brochures (ideal for estate agents, retail and services) or concertina business cards (perfect for when you need a little more space)! Concertina folding allows you to pack up to 10 pages in a convenient, pocket sized card – so the possibilities are endless.
If you’re looking for a pull out card with more pages, take a look at our Z fold cards.

Will my flyers be printed via digital or litho print methods?
The right print method will depend on a number of factors; including the type of product and the quantity, print quality and turnaround time you require.
Better Printing can produce your order on either litho or digital, with both available in-house. Our sales team can recommend the most cost-effective solution for your needs and will confirm your preferred method before going to print.
How are Concertina fold cards supplied?
Each finished C fold is supplied trimmed, folded to final size and the covers attached.
Do I have to have covers?
No, we can supply just the folded leaflet without covers. Just get in touch for a quote.
I want to use this for fire safety instructions. How can I ensure people won’t lose them?
We can supply a clear concertina card holder for most sizes.
Can I customise each C fold card with unique information (eg addresses, branch-specific details etc)?
Yes! With variable data printing, you can add unique text and graphics to each individual C fold card in your print run – all we need from you is a single ‘base’ design and a database of the content you’re looking to add on top. Call us on 023 8087 8037 to set up your variable print today!
Which type of leaflet card should I choose? Z fold, C fold, K fold or Multi fold?
Each type of folded card offers a different number of panel rows as standard:
C fold: one single concertina-folded panel row
K fold: two rows of panels
Z fold: three rows of panels
Multi fold: four rows of panels
The right version for you will largely depend on the amount of information you’re looking to print, versus the thickness of the card when folded up. If you’re looking for a more slimline card design, we recommend going for the C fold or K fold options; if you need to display lots of information, the Z fold or Multi fold is a safer bet
