How many pages do pocket folders hold?

Knowing how much paper a pocket folder holds can keep your presentation, conference or meeting neat and organized.

1 or 2 pocket folders with flat pockets

A flat pocket in a pocket folder and a flat spine will hold about 15 sheets, which means a 2 pocket folder can hold 30 sheets.  This may mean your folder feels pretty full and has a bit more heft.

The capacity spine is very helpful, even with a flat pocket.  The pocket folder doesn’t bow open and so sits better when full. Added bonus, each pocket can hold 20 sheets. So a 1 pocket folder would hold 20 sheets, a 2 pocket – 40 sheets.

 

Pocket folders with capacity pockets

There are two possibilities here.

Expandable pockets can hold up to 50 sheets of paper (each). These pockets sit flat until you need them, then they fold out. Great if you have variable amounts of data  that you need to hand out.

Box pockets in pocket folders are the other option.  These can be as big as 1/2″ to 3/4″ so they hold a lot of paper. We would suggest looking at other options at the 3/4″ size, as the weight of the paper can become an issue. Also, if you are creating a 2 pocket folder with box pockets, you may consider 1 flat pocket and 1 box pocket or two smaller box pockets for stability.

 

When designing your next custom pocket folder, try to get an idea of how it will be used and if there is a set amount of materials going into it.  The expandable pocket folder offers the most range if the materials are variable.
