What do gate-fold and close gate-fold mean?
A standard gate-fold brochure is similar to a 6-page presentation folders, but with a lighter default paper stock, no internal pocket or flap for storing documents, and a unique front cover which opens outwards like a set of gates or saloon doors.
With a standard gate-fold, you get a brochure which features two fold creases; creating two full-size pages or panels, and four half-sized pages or panels.
A close gate-fold brochure adds a third fold crease in the middle, splitting the two full-size pages or panels into four half-size panels for a total of eight half-size pages. Essentially, it turns your brochures into large-scale folded leaflets!
