Custom Shape Folders

Whoever said you can’t always get what you want in life, clearly hadn’t heard about our custom shape die-cut folder printing service.

At Better printing we believe you can never have too much choice. That’s why we offer custom folders die-cut to the shape of your choice. We can create premium quality printed folders in any shape you can think of. So go crazy! Think outside the box. Maybe a die cut pocket in shape of your company logo? Or perhaps die-cut punched out holes? Or an aesthetically pleasing rounded corner? Whatever it is you’re after, we promise the end result will be a stylish, professional, custom presentation folder that protects your documents whilst simultaneously reinforcing your company branding.

Whether it’s just that traditional A4 and A5 business folder sizes don’t do it for you or you’re after something a bit wackier we promise to create your custom die-cut folder. We have a range of finishes to choose from including lamination, embossing, and gold foiling. So rest assured your bespoke pocket folders will definitely stand head and shoulders above the competition.

All our bespoke folders are printed using our Litho print press on premium 350gsm silk. Your folders will be delivered to you flat, die cut and creased to final size, with tape applied to glue flap or with interlocking tabs.

Warning - Avoid cracking with lamination to spine

If you don't want to assemble the folders yourself, let us know and we will happily provide that service for you at a small extra cost.

Designs can be uploaded at the checkout stage. Files should be uploaded in PDF format as single pages; our team can give you guidance as required. All our printed custom die-cut folders are the same price with or without capacity.

For our full range of sizes, finishes, lamination and printing options please see the specifications tab.

How many pages can be stored inside the folder pocket?

Each folder can be supplied with a small margin at the pocket edges and folder spine, giving more room to store sheets inside.
