Hi there,

I am creating a trifold / gatefold brochure. Each page is A4 so it’s quite big but I can’t work out the dimensions of the inside page (there are 3 pages for trifold). I know it will be printed on card stock so the inside page will need to be that bit more narrow. I know it can’t just be a third each  but I can’t do the maths!  

Does anyone know how I would work this out? I can only see trifold templates online for documents that fold from A4 into smaller pamphlets. But this is a much bigger brochure that folds down to A4. I hope that makes sense. 

Thanks for your help.

Hi UkeyD,

The inside will be around 63cm X 29.7 based on three A4 pages. It may be worth trying and get a sample of the card stock you're using and fold. This should then give you a better idea of the dimensions you want to use for the document and how you can setup any margins and bleed guides.

If you're having this professionally printed, remember to also set the document to the required colour profile/spec when creating the document. If you are unsure about which profiles to use, ask your printer.

You can ask your printer for dimensions when in doubt, depending on machines and paper,  it's some times wisest to ask first than having to modify a file for technical reasons.
