Tri-fold brochures are one of the most common brochures. They are thin and convenient to carry and tempt viewers to open it as they cause intrigue. These brochures are economical to print since they are basically standard-sized prints (usually LTR or LGL) on light stocks that are folded in three. They have 6 panels to place information on, which is an advantage over other types of brochures. However, this is not always true: the tri-fold morphology adapts to larger brochures. In these cases, they usually have triple or double-LTR pages, and the stock used is of higher quality.
Gate-fold brochures are not very common; this is why they produce great impact when they are appropriately used. The standard gate-fold brochure is a quad-LTR page folded in four, which results in 8 panels: 1 front panel, 1 back panel, and 6 internal panels; however, this configuration can be changed. The most interesting feature of this type of brochure is that they arrange very wide graphs. These brochures are usually printed in high-quality paper to ensure a long lifetime and that it will reach the hands of the target audience. Viewers tend to keep them for more time than other brochures, which increases the public awareness of the brand and allows the possibility of being handed over to other people in case the first person is not interested in the contents e usually large.
