SHOWCASE YOUR SAMPLES IN SPECTACULAR FASHION
Architectural folders are specifically designed to present your product samples in unique and compelling ways. They are a versatile display case which allows you to show your customers color options, textures, and finishes from your product line.
STRENGTH + DURABILITY
Our architectural folders are built to last. Their durable construction makes them the perfect presentation tool for heavier samples such as hard surface flooring products like wood, tile, or stone. Just like our award-winning binders, our architectural folders are custom designed, printed, and manufactured in-house.
We offer unique finishing options to give your architectural folder not only the highest level of functionality but also exactly the look you envision. Choose between gloss, natural matte, and matte soft touch lamination; set highlights with spot gloss UV or foil stamping; include rings or binder clips on one or more panels; or add one of our closure options or handles.
check out our POCKET FOLDER styles
Add printed information to your architectural folder, for example spec sheets or product information, by including binder rings. This allows for easy adjustment of materials accompanying your samples.
When you want to hold a pad of paper in your architectural folder, a clip is an easy and attractive way to do it. Corporate Image offers a wide range of sizes and styles from which to choose. Use it with or without a ring, either way this provides a great branding opportunity.
We can apply a pocket to your architectural folder to hold 25 sheets of paper, as well as a business card and even a brochure or DVD.
Metal finished finger pulls make it easy to remove architectural folders from shelves and reduce stress and wear on the top of the spine. They also are a nice design detail.
In case your architectural folders travel with you, adding a handle will make carrying it a breeze. Handles also make it easy to take them off the shelf or move them around in a showroom.
Sometimes you want to make sure your multi-panel sample folder stays securely closed. We offer magnets and Velcro closures as well as a variety of other closure styles.

6 easy steps
All of our architectural folders start with samples. From there, we will work with you to design the right folder style for you needs, reviewing number of panels needed, optional closure styles as well as decorating techniques.

We will guide you through every step of the process ensuring you will receive a sample tool that exceeds your expectations.
