Alphabet soup of folding styles... mmm mmm, confusing!

Alphabet Soup

Apologies for planting the Campbell’s Soup earworm in your head. (At least I didn’t mention your favorite bologna…you know, the one with a first name and last name…or a certain cat food mix that will leave you mentally meowing in double time). But you see, I was reviewing the many fold styles available for use with PSMailers… C-fold, V-fold, ZX-fold… and I realized this alphabet soup of letters likely stirs up a hot cup of confusion for many users. I figured that PSMailers Guy fans (I know you’re out there) would appreciate having these spelled out clearly.


Below are the six available fold styles of PSMailers documents:

Z-Fold "Accordion style" Z-Fold This is the most common fold style. Creates the letter "Z" when folded; easy-open style good for forms, checks and other mailings. 8.5" x 11" 8.5" x 14"
C-Fold "Letter" or "Tri-Fold" Great for checks and forms. 8.5" x 11" 
 V-Fold "Half Fold" or "Single Fold" Forms the letter "V" when folded, provides generious space for information.   8.5" x 11" 
 EZ-Fold "Eccentric Z-Fold" Uneven Z-Fold, great for checks and forms that need a little more print real estate.   8.5" x 14"
 EC-Fold "Eccentric C-Fold" Legal size accommodates a fourth panel for return envelope.   8.5" x 14"
 ZX-Fold "Z-Fold with extra voucher" Legal size version of the Z-Fold with a fourth panel that creates a detachable voucher ideal for printing A/P checks.   8.5" x 14"

I Feel the Need, the Need for Speed!

Posted by PSMailers Guy on Fri, Aug 8, 2014 @ 13:08 PM


Gosh, I love that movie! As quoted by the characters Maverick (Tom Cruise) and Goose (Anthony Edwards) in Top Gun, “I feel the need, the need for speed!” I will never tire of watching that movie. The Need for Speed is synonymous with the PSM10K. Seriously. How can you beat 10,000 documents per hour? With the PSM10K, you can add up to 500 sheets while the equipment is processing thanks to bottom feed technology. Due to its extra-long conveyor at 36”, the PSM10K easily accommodates the high output. As crazy as this might sound, just think of it as a Hemi engine. It’s powerful and muscular. Not bulky. It’s a fine looking piece of equipment that quietly sits on a desktop and churns out the mailers.

With the power of the PSM10K, you’ll be surprised to know it only weighs 75 pounds. It processes sheets up to 8.5” x 14” and can produce five different folds: C, V, EZ, Z and EC. It has a manual fold plate, a digital counter and is a bottom-feeding system. A variable speed dial allows you to control the speed if it needs to be slowed temporarily....but don’t even think of it. Why harness the power and output?!

Just think of every business communication that can be produced and mailed in such a quick amount of time. To the tune of 200,000 mailers per month. That’s volume and speed. That’s the PSM10K. The PSM10K integrated folder/sealer can process checks, direct mail communications, invoices or statements and so much more. “It’s designed for high-volume businesses!”

C Fold or Z Fold? Figuring out Fold Style for Pressure Seal Documents

Posted by PSMailers Guy on Wed, Feb 20, 2013 @ 11:02 AM

C-fold or Z-fold

Identifying the fold style is the first and most important step in getting the results you need from your PS Mailers pressure seal investment. Determining the fold style is key to setting up the PS Mailers equipment to run the pressure seal documents properly.

Step 1: Identify the form size. Is it 8½" x 11" or 8½" x 14"?
Step 2: Is it a check? Go on to Step 3.
Is it a form? Skip to Step 4.
Step 3: Where is the check location?
If the check is in the middle portion of the document, you have a Z fold.
If the check is in the bottom portion of the document, you have a C fold.
Identify whether it folds like an "accordian" Z fold or a "typed, formal letter" C fold.
Here's where it gets a little sticky...identifying glue patterns on the form actually can help determine the fold style. Crazy, but true!
  • If there is glue all around the form AND it folds in two equal panels, then it's a V fold.
  • If there is glue all around the form AND it folds in three equal panels, it's a C fold.
  • If there is glue ONLY around 2/3 of the document, it's a Z fold.
Determine whether each panel is the same size or different sizes.
  • If you see three equal size panels, it's either a Z fold or a C fold. [Take a quick step back to Step 4 and determine whether is folds like an accordian or a formal letter to make the final determination of whether it's a C fold or a Z fold.]
  • If a return envelope is part of the document, it's an Eccentric C fold (Ecc. C for short!).
  • If you see two larger panels in the top and middle positions and one smaller panel in the bottom position (where you'd find the return address and mail-to address), it's an EZ fold.

Pressure seal technology brings incredible efficiency to any busy office.
