Interested in adding a gatefold to your printing project? We can help!

A gatefold 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. Due to the reduced parent sheet size, we are unable to create gatefolds for domestically produced orders.

If you find you want to expand beyond a double gatefold, or have specific folding ideas in mind, this is more than likely something we can accommodate! However, there are manufacturing limitations to be mindful of, so if you have something in mind that does not qualify for a standard gatefold or double gatefold please contact one of our friendly customer service Ninjas and we can let you know if we can work with your specifications.

Add-on Considerations

Make the most out of your gatefold with specialty add-ons!

A popular choice is the addition of perforated edges to allow the reader to pull out a poster or form. You can see an example of this first hand when you purchase our deluxe book sample pack – just be sure to note that you would like to see the PrintNinja China Trip Book! Another common option is spot UV, an enhancement that adds visual appeal and a tactile sensation.

Other applicable options include: foil stamping, emboss/debossing, metallic ink, glow-in-the-dark UV, pearl UV, and textured paper.


Request pricing for adding a gatefold and any applicable add-ons while locking in your price on our quoting calculator. Be sure to include the following:

  1. Type of Gatefold: Single, Double, Other?
  2. Any Specialty Add-ons

We’ll reach out to you with a custom quote (or questions) within 1 business day of receiving your request. Of course, if you’re not sure if this option is right for you, feel free to reach out to one of our friendly customer service Ninjas! We’ll be happy to talk with you and help you determine whether this is the right choice for you.
