Solutions: Gate Fold

Powerful graphics are important for bringing attention to your printed project and adding a fold or two can be just what it needs to add that extra punch to make it memorable. Some folds require die cutting because of their size or shape – but the Gate Fold can be integrated into a piece very simply and economically.

As you can see in the examples, the gate fold looks just like what its name intends. Two edges are folded in to meet each other so when it is opened it literally looks like gates opening up. In these examples, the two ‘gates’ are the same size, but that isn’t necessary – making this a very versatile option. One of the examples was die cut to look like a plate while the other was simply folded in an interesting way that highlighted the graphics.
