  1. Very impressive printing. Trying to get something printed here locally and put together that well will probably cost you some money. Looks beautiful in terms of design, but in terms of mass producing and distributing, I am not sure.

  2. The folder designs are really awesome. They play an important role document management and brand establishment.
    Thats a way to impress customers and to establish business.

    Thanks for sharing the designs.

  3. Some great designs in this collection, it’s been quite a while since I’ve worked on a folder… Always used to be quite problematic at the printers, don’t really miss working on them!

  4. Looks like I need to upgrade mime now. I use simply use a hard cover paper with my business name on it and then punch holes and bound everything together. Better presentation shall sell easier.

  5. Some intresting folders there. Alot of them would be a little to far out for some of the clients that I have. It can some times be hard to get a client to brake from the norm with something like this expecially when it does not look as impressive on the screen as when it is printed, shaped and folded the way that it should look.

  6. Yes, some amazing folder designs, as ‘chris hart’ said, please share with us where you got these folder designs from, email me if you can and let me know, i am very interested in getting these done. I love the ‘Hello’ one, i think that is really cool.

    At the end of the day these folders are truely what sells you, so they need to look amazing.

  7. Great post, very helpful, I have to say that if ones web site like this on of Target was so unhelpful to the client using it, why would this client come back, or even tell anyone else to use it. This can be very damaging to a business in the long run.

  8. superb collection. couple of months ago i have been searching for some nice ideas, while designing CD and Folder covers but couldnt find anything good. this collection will remain in my fav list untill the next assignment πŸ™‚

  9. These are brilliant, do the companies themselves design them, or is this a job for a separate designer? Where do you go to get things like this printed?

    Hat off to them, they must have taken some work!

  10. Although I work more in digital now I do still really enjoy looking at print and a post like this is just the thing I enjoy looking at. I am now trying to think of a project where I will need some folders just so that I can have a go in my own time. If you are needing to present a project then I think it is important to give off the right impression, including the choice of folder that you have. I really like the ‘hello’ folder as its something a little different. I also like the Nic folder due to the printing techniques and effects that are used. Embossing like that can really make an impact.

  11. These folders are stunning! Absolutely incredible. It makes me feel slightly cheap using my plastic ring bind folders πŸ™

    I’m definitely going to look into this though, particularly for when we have stools at corporate events etc.

  12. I’m extremely impressed with your writing skills as well as with the layout on your weblog. Is this a paid theme or did you modify it yourself? Anyway keep up the nice quality writing, it is rare to see a great blog like this one today..

  13. can someone tell me how to create folders like these?
    What webs tie/ company would I use? i can’t seem to find anything anywhere,

  14. I agree with you that Presentation folders play an important role in marketing. For that I will use these kind of folder design for my business. Thanks for posting important information .
