Folder Printing Cape Town
Hot Ink makes beautiful hand-finished folders. We print onto card stock up to 450gsm for a top quality feel plus our folders can have a variety of finishes including lamination, spot gloss varnish, laser cutting, metallic gold & silver ink and now even opaque white ink!
Our brand new extra-length feature makes us capable of laser printing up to 1200mm wide allowing us to produce multiple-panel folders which means super quick turnaround and no minimum quantity! For the most cost effective folder printing, we have standard templates which are available immediately (rates here). We also offer a variety of recycled card stocks if you are looking for greener print options for your folders.
But if you want to boost your normal folder into a creative stationery piece that people will want to keep, scroll down for some guidelines (or view more inspiration here).
With the clever use of finishes and a bit of imagination, you can create premium stationery and still remain within your budget. Don’t limit yourself to the standard format, try a different shape, like square instead of A4. Allow your design to influence the shape of your pocket too. Folders that are required to hold a lot of content may need a gusset or boxed pocket…
You can also mix up your papers: experiment with different textures by making use of recycled card stocks, glossy coated paper, translucent paper and even the application of self adhesives to compliment your printing…
Laser cutting adds another dimension to the character of your folder and can be applied to both the covers and the pockets. The use of perforated lines instead of creasing gives an industrial treatment to a standard unprinted folder.
If you have a bit of budget and you want something really unique, chat to us about a hand-crafted option which will give you a truly premium result. (more inspiration here)
