The Challenge

This client was trying to fit a lot of information into a small space. It’s a common challenge and our solution happens to work well across many industries.

Our Solution

This piece is a printed marvel, it is a multi-fold on a single piece of paper with a glued-on card cover and back. If you want people to keep hold of your print – whether it’s a leaflet, guide, event programme or map – this is a BRILLIANT option. It's exciting to use and fits easily into a pocket.

It’s a small compact piece of print but thanks to its brilliant fold it doesn't limit you on content, it can hold so much information. The information can be broken up into as many as 18 sections front and back or spread across the whole page making it ideal for a map.

The exciting folding isn't the only thing that's brilliant about this jam-packed piece of print we created for the university, the print has been done on our LED UV press which gives vibrant colours and a clean crisp look to the whole piece.

LED UV uses around 20% less ink than conventional printing presses because there’s no absorption of the ink into the paper.

The Result

Our client said, “This was the first time we used a z-fold and it has become a regular feature in our collateral since.”


They added, “B&B Press are consistently brilliant and always go miles out of their way to help us with the most complicated of requests.”

People can’t stop fiddling with a piece of print like this, which is why they make such a good option if you want something that the reader won't put down.

As previously mentioned the brilliant z-fold works well across industries and can be tailored to suit your needs.

Here are a few options;

Complete your event or with a z-fold attached to a Lanyard. You can guide your guests or team members around the venue or workplace. You have so much space to take advantage of the possibilities are endless.

Another option is for clothing and bottle hang tags, z-fold booklet tags are an elegant and cost-effective way to display extra content on a wide range of products.
