    Document / poster fold names and common characteristics?

    shawninvancouver Level 2

      Hello all,

       

      I am trying to figure out the lingo... I am creating a long fold-out quick start. It will have five panels per side and probably fold according style four times. I haven't settled on a size but I am guessing about 27.5 inches by 8.5 inches (each panel would be 5.5 x 8.5).

       

      Like this:

      Basically, I am trying to understand/learn the proper terminology for when I propose this format.

       

      Besides calling it a five panel, 4 folds, accordion style... is their a more appropriate name?

       

      I know... double parallel, gate fold, broadside, roll, etc... but what is this called?

       

      Anything other tips or knowledge I should know about professionally printing/folding this format?

       

      Your feedback is greatly appreciated. Thank you.
