    I like the grunge style here. Its a little hard to read at times, especially with the white text on black.

    Nice work, keep up the good stuff!

    I think I see what your trying to do with the underline, but I don't think its working in this case. A simple underline can help to add distance between a title and say a headline and can also make the...

  • Tri folds how many different ways/

    I was wondering how many ways can one fold a 3 panel brochure?
    Also how would the printers know what kind of fold you want?

    ive heard you can't fold a piece of paper more then 7 times. but ive only been doing this for 8 years or so (about 2 less then you) and i still haven't figured it out

    good luck though! let me know how it works out!

      I just did a few different tri-folds for some clients. The only way I know how to have the printer know which way to fold it, is to print out a copy, fold it, and then drop it off or mail it to the printer. It's hard if your printer is far away, so I would also suggest folding a physical copy, and then photographing it, and send the printer a JPEG. Although, maybe there are simpler solutions.

        Generally speaking, a tri-fold is an inner fold... otherwize it would be a z fold

              Isn't a c-fold like a "open gate fold", two outer panels folding in, leaving the center flat not folded?

                    Like a #10 fold, I call that a roll fold.
