8.5x11 Half-Fold Brochures
8.5x11 Half-Fold Brochures
Half-folded brochures and flyers are convenient as weekly programs, 4-page booklets, newsletters, and generally smaller marketing materials. We print these “folded flyers” on four different glossy or matte papers specifically designed for almost any project. All half folded 8.5x11 brochures are printed in full color, and full bleed and rush options are available.
These brochures are double-sided 8.5x11 prints half folded. The final size is 5.5x8.5.
Three Brochure Papers
- Gloss Paper (100# Text) – This shiny paper presents a slightly thicker hand which some professionals prefer.
- Gloss Card (100# Cover) – Not quite as thick as the 110# available for art posters, but better suited for scored brochures.
- Matte Paper (100# Text) – Far less shiny than gloss, the dull matte is better suited for writing purposes.
Turnaround Times For Brochures
There are three turnaround options for 8.5x11 brochures. Remember to match up your turnaround days for any other products you order simultaneously. Digital proofs and artwork problems will likely increase turnaround by one additional day.
Two Half-Fold Options Available
The first option is a vertical fold, and the second option is a horizontal fold. A vertical fold is only available for orders of 500 and up.
Digital Proofs for 8.5x11 Half-Fold
If there is an art issue, we will email you a digital proof in PDF format. In some cases, we adjust artwork to assist with proper spacing. If it is imperative you receive a digital visual beforehand; please let us know by selecting the digital proof option for $5. Our graphic designers inspect artwork before printing for quality purposes.
A digital proof will add one day to the turnaround.
Half-Fold Brochure Details
8.5 X 11 (file should be 8.75 X 11.25) is the most common brochure choice and is customarily trifled or half folded. Brochures can be single or double-sided.
The production team scores thicker half-fold brochures (card stock) before folding. Still, they do not fold orders over 100, ensuring a lower risk of shipping damage. The scoring will ensure that the folds are crisp, accurate, and clean. We will fold all orders placed on text papers (gloss and matte paper).
We've made a half-fold template for each print size to help you understand trim areas better.

Generally, people prefer text papers as an affordable way to market events, monthly newsletters, order guides, small catalogues, and any other situation where a budget is a primary concern. We picked 100# over 80# for a better feel.
Sometimes, brochures need to be heavier but not quite as durable as postcards. To grasp the thickness, think about the cover of a magazine. Sometimes, this stock can also provide welcome savings compared to other cover media.

We offer additional paper sizes and folds for brochures. Think accordion fold, half-fold, tri-fold, z-fold, french gold, and gatefold. This wide range of folding options is ideal for showcasing all types of products and services. Contact us.
