Cross Folds

Cross folds, or multi-directional folds, are folds that are performed in more than one direction in relation to the sheet of paper. Each cross fold is made at 90 degrees to the previous fold(s) to produce a multi-dimensional effect.

8-Page Standard Cross Fold
Ref. CRO8

The simplest form of cross fold is where the sheet of paper is folded in half, then in half again, with the second fold being made at a 90 degree angle to the first fold. This fold produces a simple multi-page leaflet or pamphlet and is used where a large amount of information needs to be conveyed without going to the expense of producing a bound brochure.

Paper Range:
Smallest Flat Sheet Size:

80-200gsm

16-Page Standard Cross Fold
Ref. CRO16

A standard 16-page cross fold is similar to an 8-page cross fold except an additional fold is made at a 90 degree angle to the second fold..

Paper Range:
Smallest Flat Sheet Size:

80-200gsm

12-Page Half + Roll Fold
Ref. HRO12

This fold works well for newsletters or leaflets where a large amount of information needs to be conveyed but needs to be presented to the reader in a more structured way. The leaflet first unfolds like a standard 6-page roll fold, but can then be opened up to reveal double the amount of information. This fold is produced by first folding the sheet of paper in half, then producing a roll fold at a 90 degree angle to the first fold.
