Many speciality products on the market require short fold lengths. The field of small folding is, therefore, correspondingly large. Examples of small information media include merchandise information on clothing, in cigarette packs or in cosmetic products. This can be a simple four-page spread or a multi-page mini-booklet.

Here are a few of the products that are most common in the small fold sector. Read on to learn about outserts, inserts, booklet labels and lots.
OutsertsOutserts are pharmaceutical instruction sheets, which will be enclosed to medications. By multiple folds, the unfolded formats will be folded to small final sizes. Because of the relatively high thickness of the products, the cross folds occur by a parallel knife. Afterwards, the closing of the Outserts happens by a label or by glue. Light weight paper of approx. 40 g/m² are the basis for these products to realize this number of folds. A profitable market, which requires high quality standards.
Inserts and booklet labelsInserts are leaflets for the pharmaceutical industry, which will be applied to the medical cardboard boxes. Short folding lenghts realize a small final format of the inserts and multiple folding allows a production and folding of large unfolded paper sheets. For the cosmetic business, the inserts will be packed by as instruction leaflets. Very similar products are booklet labels, which were folded in multiple ups to small final formats. The ups will be punched on the labelling machine in single ups.
Lottery ticketsLottery tickets are the typical miniature folding products, because they lie well in hand. Generally, this requires a miniature folding machine to achieve the short folding lenghts. Multiple roll-folds in combination with lateral gluing result in label closure. Additionally the sides will be crimped. This is a mechanical method for bonding the layers which supports the safeness and the access to the lottery ticket content. Because of just using parallel folds, it will be folded and delivered in multiple up.
