Self-Mailers - Double Parallel Fold
Z-fold with 3 folds (4 panels)
Double parallel fold self-mailers feature three Z-shaped folds. The Z-fold is a variant of the parallel fold in which the folds are parallel to one other. Self-mailers are special in that they combine a cover letter, product information and reply card all in one. All the information can be personalised. A special closure method ensures that self-mailers remain sealed during delivery but can still be opened easily by the recipient.
- Format: DIN A5
- 8 pages
- Different versions available
- Self-mailers are printed in 4 colours (CMYK)
- Available in print runs starting at 50
Frequently asked questions
Can I also order products that are not included in the standard product range?Yes. Flyerline Schweiz AG is capable of providing you with nearly any conceivable printed product. We have one of the most extensive, state-of-the-art pools of printing and processing equipment in Switzerland. If you don’t see the product you want in our standard range, please use the contact form to send us your request. Our Sales team will be happy to prepare an attractive, customised quote.
How quickly can Flyerline deliver?Delivery times vary depending on the specific product and print run. We always make every effort to produce and deliver your printed matter as quickly as possible. We generally need 2-5 working days, depending on the product. When you place your order, we offer a “Rush” option for most products that generally ensures you expedited production and a turnaround time of one working day. The actual time required for production and the expected shipping date can always be found in our shop, right by the configured print product.
How should I deliver my print data?Ideally, we recommend that you send us a print file with a resolution of 300 dpi in CMYK colour mode (colour profile: Euroscale ISO coated, v3) and a bleed of 3 mm. The data formats that work best are .pdfx1, .pdfx3 and .pdfx4 as well as .tiff and .jpg for picture files. For detailed information, please refer to our “Data Delivery Tips”. You will find this document and the corresponding product data sheet both in our Download Centre and by the product in question.
What does 4/0 or 4/4 mean?4/0 colour means: printed in four colours on one side (full colour)
4/4 colour means: printed in four colours on both sides (full colour)
Can I also send Office files to Flyerline?Yes. But since Office files cannot be processed for professional printing, we first have to convert them into printable files. We charge a conversion fee of CHF 25 per file and page.
What is CMYK?Cyan, magenta and yellow are the primary colours used for subtractive colour mixing. Black (K) is added because the primary colours are unable to produce a pure black. CMYK is the colour space required for printing. All masters are converted into CMYK files if they are not delivered in CMYK format.
My file is in RGB mode. Will that work too?Yes. We convert the data into CMYK. This could result in slight variations in colour, especially in the case of extremely bright colours, since we do not know what colour was originally used and RGB documents look different on every screen. If you provide us with print data in RGB mode, we recommend selecting the “Proof” option.
What is bleed?The bleed is the area of the print data that extends beyond the normal edge. Bleeds are necessary because printing machines work within a certain tolerance range and the paper can shift slightly during printing. Please create print files that have a 3 mm bleed on each edge.
Personalised self-mailers – possible uses
Double parallel fold self-mailers have one basic function, which is to establish a dialogue with the customer. Yet thanks to their clever design, self-mailers actually do double duty: They combine a greeting with product information and a reply card, making them extremely cost-effective. Reply cards are also a perfect tool for measuring the success of your mailing. Everything can be personalised – not only the salutations and addresses but even the reply card and image templates if necessary. Take advantage of all the advantages offered by self-mailers: cost-effective, quick and personalised advertisements!
Double parallel fold self-mailers have 3 folds (4 panels) and a flat size of 588 x 210mm. The finished print size is DIN A5, 148 x 210 mm.
Number of pages
Double parallel fold self-mailers have a total of 8 pages (4 panels).
Flyerline Schweiz AG uses the CMYK 4-colour model for printing (also referred to as Euroscale). Any special or RGB colours contained in the files will be converted to CMYK.
Our self-mailers can be ordered in print runs starting at 50 copies and are also available in large-scale print runs.
Grammages, paper type, material
We print double parallel fold self-mailers on 135 g/m2 coated illustration printing paper with a semi-matt finish. The paper used for this is FSC-certified, which means it was produced in accordance with the principles of sustainable forestry.
