How to make a gate fold
A gate fold is created by folding two ends to meet in the middle. This creates a large section in the center and two smaller ones on the sides. It creates six panels altogether.
The name “gate fold” refers to its resemblance to a gate, since the two flaps open like the doors of a gate to show the interior.
This is a common fold for greeting cards and can be sealed with a sticker (of a logo, initial, or other symbolic image).
Gate fold brochures open to reveal a larger interior image that is sure to be seen.
Double Gate Fold: By folding it again, along the seam where the gate flaps meet, a double gate fold is created. This creates eight panels.
- It is a good idea to leave a 1/8” gap between the two ends to avoid buckling when this final fold is made.
