Brochures are a type of pamphlet or leaflet that is highly informative, has an eye-catching design, and is most frequently used for advertising locations, events, hotels, products, services, etc. Brochures are a practical, cost effective, and professional way to portray a sense of confidence and certainty in the information the brochure showcases.
There are many different sizes for brochures and one of the most common one is 8.5 x 11, because it’s equal to most standard printing paper. Imagine taking a regular 8.5 x 11 bond paper and creating your brochure right on it, then folding and turning it into an actual brochure.
One of our most popular brochure size is the 8.5 x 14. Although it isn’t as common as the 8.5 x 11. The third option that is commonly favored for brochure size is 11 x 17. These options are the most commonly used, but definitely not the only ones we offer. If there is a brochure size that you would like and you do not see it on our list, Please Contact Us and we will be more than happy help you out.
There are many different types of folds for brochures and two most common types of brochures are the half fold and tri-fold. The half fold results in four panels with two on each side, while the tri-fold has six panels with three on each side. At Color depot we offer the tri-fold folding for all three of our brochure sizes; 8.5 x 11, 8.5 x 14, and 11 x 17.
Printing can be completed on both sides of the brochure in both full color, as well as black and white. If you would like the black and white brochures, please Contact Us.
Common paper types for brochures are: 100# gloss book self cover, this means the cover of your brochures will be the same paper as the inside, the 100# gloss book.
