Gatefold Centerfold Open

Gatefold Centerfold Open

A gatefold or centerfold is an oversized page that is folded into a magazine or book – typically found in the center of your project – that opens into six panels (3 pages back and front) or eight panels for a double gatefold. Gatefolds encourage the reader to unfold the page making it a perfect place for important information, beautiful artwork, or advertisements.

Design Considerations

Make the most out of your centerfold with specialty features. A popular choice is the addition of perforated edges to allow the reader to pull out a poster or form. Another common option is spot UV, an enhancement that adds visual appeal and a tactile sensation.

We offer many specialty paper options to help fulfill your objective.

It’s very important to note that the width of the gatefold has been shortened by 2mm – this is to compensate for the folding and to ensure the gatefold will not protrude significantly from the book. So, instead of the panel being 15″ wide, it’s 14.92″ wide.
