What is a Presentation Folder?:

A presentation folder is a non-rigid folder that can hold inserts such as catalogs, letters, contracts, carbonless forms and any other type of documents that should be kept together and as a unit. These folders are usually made out of beautiful coverstock materials, printed either on the outside or both the outside and the inside. 
When a company is providing an estimate for a job, or when a purchase of a valuable good has taken place, a presentation folder is usually the tool used to secure the documents.

The printing is used to provide identity and advertising to whoever is in possession of a presentation folder. 
In order to  be able to hold the documents without those falling, it is customary to have two pockets built into the folder.
To reinforce identity and provide contact information, a slit is usually made available to insert standard-size business cards.
These folders do not have rings.

Printing Options for Presentation Folders:

The most common printing method is curently full color printing with a coating on top of the printing. The options of what sits on top of the ink are many and range from traditional shiny UV coatings, to matte silky-feeling coatings, foil applications to 3-D raised UV. 
Years ago the most common printing options requested were a one-PMS color, but our current modern technology makes it trendier, nicer and more appealing to print in full color.

To keep letter-size documents, 8.5"x11", the size of the folder is 9"x12".
