Legal Size Folding Types
Below is the most typically type of folds for a legal size (8.5″ x 14″) sheet of paper.
Note: If your marketing piece is a direct mailer, the cheapest mailing cost (both for postage and direct mail services) is either a trifold or roll fold. When looking at the mailing panel (final folded piece), if the fold is on the bottom and the opening is on the top you only need one wafer seal (closure tab) and the piece will qualify for letter-size (cheapest postage) for either 1st or 3rd class mail. If you have additional questions about direct mail, please contact us 888-940-7070.
Trifold (Also known as Letterfold) – 6 Panels
Z Fold – Six Panels
Roll Fold (Also known as Double Half Fold) – 8 Panels
Double Gate Fold
