  • 17 tri fold template with lip

    I have been trying to located a template that shows where the fold marks should go when doing a tri fold with an extended lip on one side. The center panel is the front. Anybody have any ideas how to set this up?

      I'm not sure why you need a template. Just get a sheet of paper, cut it to the size you want, fold it up the way you want it, measure where the folds are, then reproduce those measurements in InDesign.

          If you're having your job professionally printed, you can ask what the panel sizes should be. At a bare minimum, make sure you have enough bleed to allow them to add a bit of width to the front panel. For a trifold, I create an InDesign document with 6 pages, each sized for the correct panel width - this makes alignment in each panel much easier. IDML file: https://www.dropbox.com/s/yqze76c92t...hure.indt?dl=0

          Printco has a good folding guide here: http://www.printcographics.com/pdf/d...cket_guide.pdf

          Design-wise, it's also good to avoid dictators on each panel (artwork aligned to folds). These little things can make a big difference in how your folding document comes out.

              To expand a little on what B said. Those monograms were hand created. They weren't just a font, and there's no software that will automatically squeeze them into a shape like that....

              Not sure where you got those sizes. I would try this always up to date google doc with various social media pixel sizes.
