The demand for miniature folding has grown significantly over the last 5 years. Last year, we produced over 40 million pieces. Minifolding has become a popular and effective product for several reasons:

  1. There is a large amount of information that can be printed in a very small amount of space.
    • Fit countless words in a small space to be more effecient.

  2. They are less expensive to print.
    • Saving money on certain elements of your product can pay off in large quantity jobs. 

  3. They are easy to carry and transport.
    • These user friendly pieces can fit into a pocket, wallet, purse, or anywhere!

  4. They fit conveniently into or onto different products, allowing for versatility in your branding locations.
    • So you need to fit a coupon in a small razor package? No problem! With minifolding you can get the size you want for the packaging you have. 

  5. They are a unique, interesting, and attractive print format.
    • Minifolding allows for a great deal of creativity when it comes to pairing with tipping, creating funmaps and pop-outs, and designing new pieces.
