Finally, presentation materials that convey the quality of your furniture.
Stronger, better made options to show you furniture.
We construct our 3-ring binders by pressing the hinge directly into the board, creating the strongest hinge possible. We have had them lab tested to 250,000 flexes without fail, so even if you have heavy samples, the binders will stay even and in one piece for as long as you need them.
We offer full printing outside and inside of your binders, pocket and sample folders. The quality of the printing is always held to our exacting standards, so you always get the best possible outcome.
Don’t be limited! Print both the inside and out on our binders, pocket folders and boxes. PMS colors, spot UV, and varnishes all add to your options!
We offer a choice of Gloss, Matte and Soft Touch laminations. Soft touch adds a smooth, silky feel in the hand that arouses interest and increases protection.
Cloth and Fabric
We also have over 240 cloth options to choose from. From natural weaves to bright colors, you can showcase your furniture in a complimentary, elegant style..

Sometimes you need more room in a pocket folder.
A standard pocket folder has no spine, limiting how much paper you can fit into the pockets (about 20 sheets). Sometimes that is not enough. If you need more room you have several options that can help you get what you need without breaking the bank.
Capacity Pocket Folders
For those of you who have larger information needs but don’t need a binder, a capacity pocket folder is the way to go.
A capacity pocket folder has two scores at the spine so the spine can be more than a single flat score.
Depending on the pockets you chose and the spine width (1/4 inch is fairly standard), you can fit much more information as well as having better shelf presence by branding the spine. Inside the capacity pocket folder you have more to think about. Depending on what you need, you can have box pockets (either vertical or horizontal).
Expandable Pocket Pocket Folders
An expandable pocket allows you to use the same folder for a meeting with 10 sheets of paper and a conference with 50.
One of the benefits of this pocket is that the folders can ship flat. A box pocket is amazing, but takes a lot of space resulting in larger shipping costs and more storage space.
Upgrade Your Current Pocket Folder with a Custom Folder
Corporate Image produces pocket folders that really stand out. With a huge range of pocket folder templates to choose from, and product designers who can help you customize to fit your needs you can always get what you need!
Customize your pocket folder with foil stamping, embossing, debossing and custom die-cuts, as well as aqueous coating, varnish, spot UV printing, PMS and full 4 color printing. Our laminates range from gloss, semi-gloss, and soft touch (which adds a tactile silky feel to your folder).
In addition to our standard 1 and 2 pocket folders, we offer folders with file tabs, folders with capacity, glueless folders with a box pocket and tri-folders. Standard business card cuts and brochure cuts can be added to horizontal folder pockets at no charge. We have a standard or custom folder to fit every budget and every business.
Make the custom pocket folders that wow.
A pocket folder doesn’t have to be boring. From vertical pockets, custom closures, window cuts, and unique designs, a pocket folder can be a brilliant piece of design.
Corporate Image offers a wide range of options that take your pocket folder from ordinary to extraordinary.
From tuck flap closures to velcro, Corporate Image can help keep your pocket folder information safe. A portfolio pocket folder has a flap that wraps around the open end of a pocket folder helping to keep your information safe. We have designed folders with many unique closures to match our customers brand!
Need a pocket folder that leaves an impression? We can help!
DORMA makes sliding door systems, so they wanted the closure on the folder to mimic their products. This folder has a sliding panel that velcros down to close the “door” on the folder. The result is unique, eye catching and leaves a lasting impression on everyone who picks it up!
Sustainable pocket folders.
When your company demands the most sustainable pocket folders in the world, you can turn to our glue-less pocket fiddlers. The pockets close with tuck flaps to form horizontal or vertical pockets, and as the name implies, so there is no glue involved in manufacturing this folder. What results is an elegant pocket folder that clearly speaks about who you are as a company and your values.
A Pocket Folder with Room.
One pocket folder can handle all of your needs, from 1 sheet of paper to 50.
An expandable pocket folder can take care of a wide range of needs with an ingenious system that allows you to pull out the pocket to 1/4″ capacity when needed.
If you always need a lot of paper or a catalog to go into your pocket folder, a box pocket offers a strong platform for information you know is always going to be there. For booklets or brochures, conference information pieces, and proposals, a box pocket offers the room to handle what you need
Knowing how much paper a pocket folder holds can keep your presentation, conference or meeting neat and organized.
A flat pocket in a pocket folder and a flat spine will hold about 15 sheets, which means a 2 pocket folder can hold 30 sheets. This may mean your folder feels pretty full and has a bit more heft.
The capacity spine is very helpful, even with a flat pocket. The pocket folder doesn’t bow open and so sits better when full. Added bonus, each pocket can hold 20 sheets. So a 1 pocket folder would hold 20 sheets, a 2 pocket – 40 sheets.
There are two possibilities here.
Expandable pockets can hold up to 50 sheets of paper (each). These pockets sit flat until you need them, then they fold out. Great if you have variable amounts of data that you need to hand out.
Box pockets in pocket folders are the other option. These can be as big as 1/2″ to 3/4″ so they hold a lot of paper. We would suggest looking at other options at the 3/4″ size, as the weight of the paper can become an issue. Also, if you are creating a 2 pocket folder with box pockets, you may consider 1 flat pocket and 1 box pocket or two smaller box pockets for stability.
When designing your next custom pocket folder, try to get an idea of how it will be used and if there is a set amount of materials going into it. The expandable pocket folder offers the most range if the materials are variable.
Spot UV – Add excitement to your print pieces
UV coatings are one of the range of print finishes and textures that you can use to make your art jump off of the page (or binder). We have found that a lot of designers haven’t worked with these finishes a lot, so we are offering a little series on print finishes.
What is spot UV and how can I use it on my binders, folders, and boxes?
UV (ultraviolet) Coatings start as a clear liquid that is dried or cured with an ultra violet light. This is printed in-line on a UV press. This is often seen in a gloss or matte, though it is available in textures (like sandpaper among others). While you can flood an entire piece with UV, we most often see it used in spot coverage, highlighting text and images, or in the case of the image below, the spot UV creates the design elements of the folder. Subtle, but effective.
If you are printing a pocket folder, binder or box, you are probably laminating your materials to protect the whole piece from the rough and tumble life marketing materials go through. The nice thing about spot UV is that it can be applied after the lamination offering more opportunities to pop your art even more.
