Steps to Follow when Designing Trifold Brochures

Are you thinking about ordering trifold brochures as part of your print promotional campaign? If yes, the good news is that there are plenty of printing companies available today. You basically have two options: digital and offset printing. Digital printing companies are everywhere, and as the name implies, they use digital printers to create half fold brochures, for example. There are also offset printing companies which use equipment like Heidelberg printing presses which are huge! Quality-wise, offset printing presses are six to eight times better so if you want eye-catching brochures, go for offset printing.

A Quick Guide for Designing Brochures

Next, what are the steps that you must go through when designing trifold or any other type of brochure? Here’s a quick guide:

  1. Think about page assembly.

Accordion fold brochures have eight pages back and forth. If you will go for this folding option, how will you assemble the pages in such a way that there’s an order to it and it reads like a booklet?

  1. Make sure that your copy is compelling.

What is your purpose for creating the brochure in the first place? Would you like people to learn more about how your business started? Or are you introducing a new product of service? Based on your goal, you can put a call to action at the end. The copy should be compelling, grammatically correct, free from typographical errors, and written in a style that appears to your target audience.

  1. The photos should be professionally shot.

If people’s posts on social media are Instagram-worthy, so should the photos included in your brochure. To achieve this, you must have a set of images which are professionally shot. If you don’t have the budget for a pro photographer, at least use a good camera and nice lighting. Never use stock photography, which would ruin the professional look that you should be going for.

  1. Choose the right color and design.

If you already have a logo, incorporate the colors into your brochure design.

  1. Review your brochure design and make sure that all the elements work together.

Finally, make sure that everything about your brochure – from the colors to the font – all blend together to create a pleasant whole. The design elements should work together so in the end, you have a brochure that’s worthy of representing what you are all about as a company.
