Whether it is for a crucial meeting with an important client, or making a great first impression during a job interview, don’t overlook the importance of having beautiful custom printed presentations folders in your hands. Are you a student about to defend your thesis later this semester? Then having folders such as these could prove to be a smart investment as well. Here are some ways to get the most of your custom printed presentation folders.
Choose a Thicker Cardstock
Most of the time, presentation folders are made from a material known as cardstock. If you are familiar with greeting cards, you might already know why this matters. The thicker the cardstock you choose, the more durable it becomes. Thin cardstock might rip easily, so you will probably be better served avoiding lighter cardstock (10pt) and deciding between the thicker varieties such as 12pt, which is considered “good” and 16pt and above, which is excellent.
Inquire About Lamination
The next step is to ask about lamination for your custom printed presentation folders. When you have a laminate material wrapped around your presentation folder, it will be protected against all manner of mishaps such as spill damage, ripping, tearing, and staining. Keep your portfolio looking clean, neat, and professional. Lamination also yields two other benefits: it makes the overall folder thicker and more resilient, and the glossy material can make the colors of your presentation content brighter and much more eye-catching as well.
Enhance the Edges
Don’t forget to consider the edges and corners of your presentation folders. For instance, make sure the outer edges are durable enough to withstand all the wear and tear of being handled and carried around on a daily basis while you need your folders. Your thumb and fingers will overlap on the edges the most often since that is how you will open and close your folder. Luckily, the sides can be glued and folded to increase their strength. After all, strength and rigidity is just as necessary as carrying capacity.
Upgrade the Carrying Capacity
Our last piece of advice concerns the carrying capacity of your custom printed presentation folders. By choosing a thicker spine or adding more pockets, you can keep your documents, papers, and handouts neat and orderly while still protecting them against the outside world and having them life flat when you want them to.
