Miniature Folding: The Easy Way to Pack Lots of Info into a Small Package
Miniature Folding, also known as mini folding, is a specialized folding method that reduces a large sheet of paper into a very condensed size.
Miniature folding is important to product manufacturers because it provides a cost-effective way to fit a great deal of printed information into a tight space or small package.
Which Applications use Miniature Folding?
Any printed matter that accompanies a product in a small package is a good candidate for miniature folding. The printed matter may be an instruction sheet, product warranty, use and care guide, coupon, brochure or any other information that a manufacturer wants to include with its product.
Examples of manufactured items that commonly include miniature folded inserts are small mechanical parts, electrical components, health and beauty items, personal electronics and toys, household items, wristwatches and jewelry - basically anything that gets placed in a small box or clam-shell pack. Miniature folding can also be used to create pocket-size information sheets for virtually any purpose.
Miniature Folding is a Specialized Operation
Sometimes referred to as pharmaceutical folding, miniature folding uses a relatively light weight of paper. This is because lighter paper folds easier, lays flatter and develops less bulk. But light paper is not that easy to print upon, so few printers have the means to do it. Even fewer printers have miniature folding capabilities.
