Leaflets that are folded are usually used for advertising or marketing purposes. There are many types of folds, only the most popular types are listed here. Although it is difficult to put a date on when some of these folds were first used, it is evident that their popularity boomed when the first mass production printers were introduced.

2 Concertina fold
3 Letter fold
4 Gate fold
5 French fold
6 Double parallel fold
7 Double gate fold
1 PARALLEL FOLD
Different kinds of parallel folds are Concertina folds, Letter Folds and Gate Folds.
2 CONCERTINA FOLD
A concertina fold is a continuous parallel folding of brochures and similar printed material in an accordion-like fashion, that is with folds alternatively made to the front and back in zig zag folds. Because they do not nest (as in Letter Folds) panels can be the same size. Seen from above, concertina folds resemble a Z or M or series of zigs and zags.
Also known as Zig Zag Fold, Accordion Fold or z-Fold.
3 LETTER FOLD
Folding pattern in which the folds are parallel and in the same direction, so that a kind of spiral is produced. The letter fold is a parallel fold. Two or more panels of the same width of the folded signature are folded around one panel. When the signature is folded twice, there are three panels on each side (six pages); with a tri-fold, the result is four panels on each side (eight pages). To allow proper nesting of panels that fold in, inside panels are usually 1/32" to 1/8" smaller than outer panels with the inside end panel being the smallest.
Also known as a Spiral Fold, Tri Fold, Brochure Fold, Business Letter, C Fold, Roll Fold and Barrel Fold.
4 GATE FOLD
gatefold Also known as a Window Fold.
5 FRENCH FOLD
Takes a concertina fold, folded in half down the middle to create 8 individual sections.
6 DOUBLE PARALLEL FOLD
In double parallel folds the paper is folded in half and then folded in half again with a fold parallel to the first fold. To allow for proper nesting the two inside folded panels are 1/32" to 1/8" smaller than the two outer panels.
7 DOUBLE GATE FOLD
In double gatefolds there are three parallel folds. The left and right edges of the paper fold and meet in the middle, without overlapping, along a center fold. The outer panels (the ones that fold in to the middle) are usually 1/32" to 1/8" smaller than the inner panels (the ones covered by the panels that fold in) to allow for proper folding and nesting.
8 ANGEL DESIGN AND PRINT CAN ALSO PRODUCE PAMPHLETS
Due to their low cost and ease of production, pamphlets often have been used to popularize political or religious ideas. A pamphlet is an unbound booklet (that is, without a hard cover or binding). It may consist of a single sheet of paper that is printed on both sides and folded in half, in thirds, or in fourths (called a leaflet), or it may consist of a few pages that are folded in half and saddle stapled at the crease to make a simple book. In order to count as a pamphlet.
