“Our company has been using Cushing as our go-to printer for over two years and they have constantly provided outstanding customer service and quality products. We have printed everything from half page flyers, to trifold brochures and large acrylic logo installations. Cushing offers quality paper selections and has always done their best to meet tight deadlines and quick turn with their Konica Minolta Accuriopress. I would, without a doubt, recommend Cushing to anyone looking for a dedicated, high quality printer.”

“As the Sponsorship Chair for the SMPS Heartland Regional Conference, I had the pleasure of working with Cushing for all of our printing needs. From the conference brochures, event signage, step and repeats and speaker surveys, their work was fantastic. The Cushing team was incredible, especially with tight deadlines and last minute requests. I can say without a doubt that the entire conference team would strongly recommend Cushing for any project, print or otherwise.”

Tri Fold Brochure Example
Tri Fold Brochures Option

Ready to hit the trifecta, or hat trick for any hockey fans out there. This brochure format is popular because of the sheer surface area available for promotion. Three different interior panels provide ample opportunity for your marketing messages. And don’t ignore the exterior or outside panels! The Indigo press is great for this type and our Konica lets you communicate it all in an oversize print. Ask us what’s best!

Bi-Fold Brochures

Bi-folds are another effective layout and nope, doesn’t have anything to do with bifocal glasses.

It has the feel of a booklet, but the page count is vastly different as you’re essentially summing up offerings in two pages. However, you can add graphics and sales information to the front and back cover. As you design, don’t forget the basics such as adding phone, website, address and contact email!

Gate fold Brochure Sample
Gatefold Brochure Example

Shaped like a gate – yes, as in what you might find at the front of castle, just without a moat.

It can be lightweight, and is a versatile brochure. With many panels, its an opportunity to promote a product line, grand opening, update to your brand (insert your idea here!). it is compact enough to be shared at reception areas, in your storefront, on a rack, at trade shows and so much more.

Parallel Fold

Folded once and then folded a second time, this gives you EIGHT! Yes, EIGHT panels to promote your company offerings. Different panels to communicate your marketing and sales messages. Calling all ambitious marketers, business owners and graphic designers. In all seriousness, it’s another great option to keep your brand on the mind of your client and potential customers.

Parallel Fold Brochure Option
“I’ve been working with Cushing for over two years to print my greeting cards and a variety of other print projects. I love their ability to source unique paper stocks (I’m picky) and provide a wide variety of printing options and the quality on their Indigo press is outstanding. They provide "out of the box" solutions that you just don’t receive from most commercial printing. I work directly with their rep team who respond quickly to all my questions. They truly work hard to deliver the best in printing and put customer relationships first.”
Z Fold Brochure Option
Z Fold Brochure Option

The last letter of the alphabet is also a folded brochure with lots of space to promote your services, products and more.

Yes, it is shaped like the letter – however you need to be looking from the bottom or top to see the shape! It’s a brochure type is sure to keep your customers talking about your company!

Accordion Fold

Yes, this is named after an obscure instrument which makes the rounds at polka-themed events. This brochure type gets its name from many available folds, to promote your message. Hey, at least it’s not a mandolin fold? Or tuba fold? Or … you get the idea.

Pro tip: received new positive customer feedback? consider asking them if you can add their positive testimonial to your brochure!
