Fold & perforation

Fold and fold lines

You can select different fold types depending on the number of pages of your print product. In the data sheet which you can find under “Details” on the product pages in our online shop, the fold lines are illustrated using guides.

Fold lines mark the places where the sheet will be folded by machine.

Perforation

You can order some print products with a horizontal or vertical perforation allowing easy tearing of a section. Depending on the product, the exact position of the perforation can either be selected freely or is specified. In the data sheet which you can find under “Details” on the product pages in our online shop, the places where the print product will be perforated are marked if applicable.

The perforation allows easy tearing of a section of the print product.

Please also observe our notes on numbering print products with perforation.

Possible deviations in folds and perforations

When cutting to final format, there can be deviations by up to one millimetre.

When cutting to final format, there can be deviations by up to 0.04 inch.

These deviations can affect the fold or perforation of the print product.
