Trifold brochures have been around forever, but they continue to be a popular and effective way for businesses to communicate with customers. With a clean format and plenty of room for copy and images, brochures are an effective way to share information about your business and the products or services that you offer. This InDesign template has a simple, modern style that would work well for start-ups and corporate businesses, and it’s super easy to adapt with your own colors, fonts, and images.

The template is set to US Letter size, so you can even print and fold the flyer from a home or office computer to save time and money.

What You’ll Need to Create Your Trifold Brochure

You’ll need access to Adobe InDesign, as well as fonts and graphics to use on your design. This brochure design uses:

1. How To Set Up Your Flyer Document in InDesign

Step 1

Open InDesign and go to File > New > Document.

Choose Letter from the Print options at the top of the window (which is equivalent to 8.5 by 11 in), and set the orientation to Landscape. Uncheck Facing Pages.

Add Margins of 0.375 in, and a Bleed of 0.25 in, before clicking Create.

Step 2

Expand the Layers panel (Window > Layers), and double-click on Layer 1 to rename it Color.

Create a new layer above this and name this Type.

Then lock the Type layer, and activate the Color layer.

Step 3

You need to divide the page into three equal parts to mark the folds of the brochure.

To do this, drag out a guide from the left-hand ruler (View > Show Rulers) to 3.6661 in.

Drag out a second to 7.3333 in.

Step 4

You also need to mark out the margins on either side of the folds, or your copy and images might end up being obscured. Make a note of the margin width around the outside of the page (0.375 in) and subtract this from the value of the left-hand fold.

So, 3.6661 – 0.375 = 3.2911. Drag out a guide to this X position.

Drag out another guide to 4.0394 in (3.6661 + 0.375).

Then select these two guides on either side of the fold line, and Edit > Copy them.

Edit > Paste them and drag them over to sit on either side of the right-hand fold.

Step 5

Expand the Swatches panel (Window > Color > Swatches) and choose New Color Swatch from the panel’s drop-down menu.

With the Type set to Process and Mode to CMYK, set the levels to C=0 M=84 Y=92 K=0. Click Add and then Done.

Repeat to create two more CMYK swatches:

C=0 M=8 Y=5 K=0

C=55 M=4 Y=54 K=0

2. How to Add Color Block Graphics to Your Trifold Brochure

Color blocking is a really simple design method with big impact. Using just three or four colors, you can create a striking and modern background pattern that grounds your design.

Step 1

Select the Pen Tool (P) and zoom in to the top-right section of the page.

Using the margins and guide lines as a guide, click to create a rectangular shape in the corner with a slanting triangular base.

From the Swatches panel set the Fill Color of the shape to [Black].

Step 2

Use the Pen Tool again to create a shape below this, meeting the two in the middle.

Set the Fill of this second shape to the green swatch, C=55 M=4 Y=54 K=0.

Step 3

Select both shapes and Edit > Copy, Edit > Paste.

On the copy, Right-Click > Transform > Flip Horizontal.

Move this flipped copy onto the central panel, and switch the color of the top section to C=0 M=84 Y=92 K=0.

Change the Fill of the lower shape to [None]. We will drop an image into this shape a little later.

Step 4

Edit > Paste to drop another copy of the pair of shapes onto the page, and move this over to fill the left section. Change the Fill of the lower shape to C=0 M=8 Y=5 K=0.

Change the Fill of the top shape to [None].

Step 5

Select the lower shape in the central section and go to File > Place.

You can place whatever you want here, like an image or pattern. I’m choosing a map image to locate the business. Open the file and drag it it to fill up the shape.

Select the top shape in the left-hand section and File > Place. Choose an image like this one and Open it.

Step 6

To create the reverse side of your brochure, expand the Pages panel (Window > Pages) and on Page 1, Right-Click > Duplicate Spread.

Click on Page 2 to bring it up on screen.

Double-click inside the top shape on the left-hand section to select the image inside, and then delete it. Add a [Black] Fill to the shape.

Step 7

Swap the map image for an image like this picture of people working, by going to File > Place as before.

Remove the Fill Color from the top shape on the right side of the brochure, and File > Place a different image, like this picture of young people.

3. How to Add Text to Your Brochure

Step 1

Scroll back up to Page 1 and lock the Color layer. Unlock the Type layer.

Select the Type Tool (T) and drag to create a text frame across the top-right corner of Page 1.

Type in the title of the brochure, and from either the top Controls panel or the Character and Paragraph panels (Window > Type & Tables > Character / Paragraph), set the Font to Orkney Bold, Size 43 pt, Tracking 30 and Align Left.

From the Swatches panel set the Font Color to [Paper].

Step 2

Create another text frame below this for a subtitle, setting the Font to Orkney Medium, Size 20 pt.

You can also add a logo to this front page, by going to File > Place and choosing a PNG or EPS version. Alternatively create your own logo using the shape tools in InDesign.

Step 3

Create a title text frame at the top of the central section, setting the Font to Orkney Medium, Size 35 pt.

You can add optional contact details to this page, which will be at the back of the brochure when folded. Set the Font to Orkney Regular, Size 14 pt.

Step 4

Add a simple line under the title using the Line Tool (), using the Stroke panel (Window > Stroke) to set the Weight of the line to 2 pt, and adding a Round Cap to soften the ends.

From the Swatches panel set the Stroke Color to [Paper].

Step 5

Copy and Paste the title text frame and line from the central section, moving it onto the the top of the left-hand section. Change the Font Color to your yellow swatch.

Add a text frame for body text beneath this, set in Orkney Medium, Size 13 pt.

Step 6

Select the title text frame, line and body text frame from the left-hand section on Page 1 and Edit > Copy this.

Scroll down to Page 2 and Edit > Paste in Place. Adjust the text alignment to make it a little different, and adjust the Font Color of the title text frame to your green swatch.

Step 7

Copy and Paste more text frames to populate the two other sections of Page 2.

Increase the Font Size of any pull-out quotes, reviews etc to 16 pt.

4. How to Export Your Brochure for Print

Your brochure artwork is finished, great job! All that’s left for you to do is to check for any spelling errors (Edit > Spelling > Check Spelling), and export your brochure so that you can print it. Read on to find out how.

Step 1

Go to File > Export and name your brochure something like ‘Trifold brochure for print’. From the Save as type menu choose Adobe PDF (Print), and click Save.

In the Export window that opens choose [Press Quality] from the Adobe PDF Preset menu at the top.

Step 2

If you’re printing from a home or office computer you can go ahead and click Export. If you’re sending off your brochure to be printed professionally, you need to add a bleed to your PDF.

Click on Marks and Bleeds in the window’s left-hand menu, and check Use Document Bleed Settings. Some printers won’t require all or any printer’s marks, so check with them in advance if these are required.

When you’re ready, click Export to create your ready-to-print brochure file.

And you’re done! Awesome work!

How to design a brochure in 11 steps

Sometimes it can be difficult to keep your body copy in order when using just one baseline grid. You might have a range of point sizes for quotes and side notes to use in a spread that will need to be aligned differently, for example. There are many different options for getting round this with InDesign CC (opens in new tab), I find one particularly effective method is to work with text frame grids, which enable you to have multiple baselines in your layout.

In this tutorial, I will explain how frame grids can work for you, along with a handful of other useful InDesign features, such as the Balance Ragged Lines tool and page numbering. These will help your layouts look neat and consistent.

01. Create a new document

(opens in new tab)

To start, create a new A4 document in InDesign (File > New > Document). Check the Facing Pages box and enter 4mm in the Gutter options. Then set the Margins to Top: 11mm, Bottom: 11mm, Inside: 15mm (so we don't lose anything in the gutters when binding), and put the Outside at 11mm.

02. Set up your margins and columns

Select the A-Master in the Pages panel to set up your margins and columns. To do this, go to Layout > Margins and Columns and enter how many you need. In this project, I've used nine columns, which should give enough diversity when designing each spread.

03. Set your page numbering

In the Master Pages, set your page numbering by creating a text box in the area where the number is needed. Go to Type > Insert Special Character > Markers > Current Page Number. You should then see the letter 'A' appear in that area. When you go back to your pages, the numbers will appear. Add any other assets needed, such as headers, on this page.

04. Set up your grid

Set up your baseline grid. Go to the InDesign menu and select Preferences > Grids. For this particular project, my grid starts at the top of the margin and the leading is set at 5mm.

05. Create 'horizontal zones'

Now create some horizontal zones that you think could work well with your nine columns. Usually you would do this at the beginning of your project when you set your margins, but I find doing it at this stage gives some flexibility when I'm considering where to place a piece of information or an image. I've indicated these areas in grey. To mark them, drag a ruler guide and use the X and Y fields for a little more accuracy.

06. Choose a font

Now you can start styling up your layout, so choose a font. A good font won't need too much kerning, so for this project I'm using two: Brandon Grotesque for headings and subheadings, and Vectora Light and Roman for body copy. Aside from the headings and subheadings, I've used placeholder text (cmd/ctrl + right-click) and select 'Fill with Placeholder Text'). In your Paragraph panel, click 'Align to baseline grid'.

07. Style your headings

I've chosen an underline to style my headings. You can alter the style, weight and offset the line by going to the Character panel and selecting Underline Options. I've set the Weight at 1pt and kept the colour the same.

08. Neaten paragraphs

To neaten paragraphs, you can use the Balance Ragged Lines feature in the Paragraph panel. This balances out paragraphs that end with shorter lines, similar to 'Justify all'.

09. Set text frame for captions

Captions are often much smaller in point size and leading value, so having another grid to snap to will keep these consistent. To create a text frame grid, select the text box, then cmd/ctrl + right-click and select Text Frame Options, and tick Custom Baseline Grid. I have input a grid at 3.5mm, aligned to the top margin, and selected a different colour to make them easier to see.

It's also worth noting that you can achieve a similar effect by aligning the text to the document baseline grid, and selecting the 'Only align to first line grid' option in the Paragraph panel.

10. Use the Rectangle tool

(opens in new tab) . Photography supplied by Jay McLaughlin

To keep within the overlapping theme of the spread, use the Rectangle tool to draw a shape that fully or partially covers an image, then choose a colour and fill it. Select Colour in the Transparency Effects palette (Window > Effects). If the image runs off to the edge of the layout, make sure you fill your bleed area.

11. Prepare your files for print

Once you've styled up all your spreads, you can prepare them for print. Check and double-check that you have the correct bleed for any images, and make sure they are all CMYK. All body copy should be proofread and any spelling corrected before the document is ready.

Trifold Brochure Layout Basics

A trifold brochure is a page containing three panels per side for a total of six panels inside and outside of a brochure (it's important to understand how to fold a pamphlet!). Two of the panels are the same width, while one panel is slightly narrower to accommodate the roll fold.

We will be creating a file with six pages and altering the Parent Pages later on. This approach will allow us to easily move panels on a template when necessary. We will also be able to make a PDF with crop marks, which will indicate the position of the folds. Do make sure to indicate this to the printer to avoid any mistakes.

Use this visual guide to help you understand how to fold a pamphlet.

1. Setting Up a Trifold Brochure File in Adobe InDesign

Let's begin our discussion of how to make a trifold brochure with setting up our document.

A common trifold dimension when open flat is Letter size or A4. We will be using a Letter size page for this tutorial, but feel free to use an A4 page if you prefer. As trifold brochure dimensions will vary depending on your needs, I’ve created an equation chart that you can follow below:

Step 1

The trifold brochure size for this tutorial is a Letter page. First, we need to divide the final width (279.4 mm) by 3 (93.13 mm). To this new width, we need to add a buffer for the fold (1 mm). The width of the two panels is 94.13 mm.

Later on, we will modify the size of the shorter panel. We need to subtract (2 mm) from the panel to accommodate the fold (91.13 mm).

In InDesign, go to File > New. Name the document trifold brochure. Set the trifold dimensions to the following:

Width to 94.13 mm

to Height to 215.9 mm

to Units to Millimetres

to Orientation to Portrait

to Uncheck Facing Pages

Pages to 6

to Margins to 10 mm

to Bleeds to 3 mm (although it's best to seek your professional printer’s preference)

Click Create.

Step 2

A trifold brochure has a flap that folds in; this is a shorter panel. We will create a second Parent Page with this new size.

Head over to the Pages panel. If you don’t have it active, head over to Windows > Pages. The top portion of the panel contains the Parent Pages.

Right-click on A-Parent > New Parent. In the New Parent window, make sure Based on Parent is set to [Parent]. Set the Width to 91.13 mm (subtract 2 mm from the 93.13 mm). Click OK.

Step 3

On the Pages panel, right-click on the B-Parent we just created and select Apply Parent. In the Apply Parent window, under To Pages enter 1, 6 (this is to specify that we are changing Pages 1 and 6). Click OK.

In the Parent Page Size Conflict window, click Use Parent Page Size.

Step 4

Now that we have the page sizes set up, we can move the pages to set up the spreads. Pages 1-3 will be the outside spread, and Pages 4-6 will be the inside spreads.

On the Main Menu of the Pages panel, make sure that Allow Document Pages to Shuffle is unchecked. Drag Page 2 towards Page 1 to combine. Combine Pages 1-3 as one spread and Pages 4-6. Make sure that you have the BAA and AAB Parent Pages configuration.

To exit the Parent Pages mode, double-click on the regular pages thumbnail.

Step 5

For this trifold brochure template tutorial, we will work with two layers. This will make it easier to update the template when you need to add new information.

Bring up the Layers panel by going to Window > Layers. Double-click on Layer 1 and rename it Images.

On the Layers panel main menu, select New Layer. Name it Copy, and click OK.

Step 6

We will be using Rulers for this tutorial, so press Command-R to bring them up.

Let’s add some Guides. Head over to Layout > Create Guides. In the Create Guides option window, set the Rows Number to 3 and the Gutter to 0. Under the Options, set the Fit Guides to: Page and click OK. Repeat this step on the second spread.

Show/Hide the guides and margins by pressing Command-;. Alternatively, use W to enter and exit Preview mode.

Step 7

Before we start with the design, let’s add some color swatches. Head over to Window > Color > Swatches to expand the Swatches panel. Choose New Color Swatch button from the main menu. Add the following two colors:

Yellow: C=0 M=25 Y=100 K=0 . Click Add and OK.

. Click and Blue: C=95 M=95 Y=0 K=30

Click Add and OK after you input each of the color values.

2. How to Place Images in Adobe InDesign

Step 1

Let’s start by placing images into the document. On the Layers panel, make sure you have the Images layer selected. We will be working on Page 1-3.

On the Toolbar, select the Frame Tool (F). Using the guides we created, draw frames covering the following:

Page 1: full page

full page Page 2: lower 1/3 of the page

lower 1/3 of the page Page 3: top 2/3 of the page

I’ve changed the color for easier guidance. Make sure all the frames extend to the bleed. This will ensure there are no white edges.

Step 2

Select the full page rectangle and press Command-D to Place an image. Select the Modern architecture image and click Open.

Select the image inside the frame. You can do this by clicking on the donut shape in the center of the frame or by selecting the Direct Selection Tool (A) from the toolbar. Head over to the Control bar, activate the Constrain Proportions for scaling button, and set the percentage to 45%.

This will be a background image. Place the image as you wish—there’s no right or wrong.

Step 3

Select the rectangle on Page 2 and press Command-D to Place an image. Select the Business people image and click Open.

Select the image and head over to the Control bar. Activate the Constrain Proportions for scaling button and set the percentage to 25%. Try to center the hands in the frame using the Direct Selection Tool (A).

Repeat this process for Page 3. Select the Two creative owners image and click Open.

Head over to the Control bar. Activate the Constrain Proportions for scaling button and set the percentage to 35%. Try to place the focused subject within the margins.

Step 4

You’ll notice that the images we placed have different tones. A great way to fix this is to add a colored effect over the top. This is also a great way to apply your brand to the brochure by choosing colors from your logo.

Using the Rectangle Tool (M), create rectangles over each image. Head over to the Swatches panel and select the purple color we added previously.

Step 5

To apply an effect, bring up the Effects panel. Go to Window > Effects.

Select the rectangle on Page 1. Since we will have text over this image, we need to select a Blending Mode that will allow the type to be legible. Select Multiply from the drop-down menu and set the Opacity to 90%.

Step 6

We need the images on Page 2 and 3 to come through more since they will be standalone images. Select both rectangles and set the Blending Mode to Color.

Step 7

Let’s add a contrasting color to some of the empty sections. This will help to reinforce the brand on the brochure template. Select the Rectangle Tool (M) and draw a rectangle covering the top portion of Page 2. Head over to the Swatches panel and select the yellow color we added.

Additionally, create a line under the main image on Page 3. Select the Line Tool () from the toolbar. Hold down Shift to draw a straight horizontal line across the panel. Head over to the Control bar, set the Stroke size to 7 pt, and set the Stroke color to yellow.

Step 8

Let’s add a logo to the pamphlet template. Ideally, the logo is placed on the first page and the back of the pamphlet. Press Command-D and select and The 01 file is perfect for the front of the brochure template, and 02 is perfect to go over a colored background.

Resize both images by going to the Control bar and setting the Scaling to 10%.

Step 9

Let’s work on Pages 4-6. Select the Rectangle Tool (M) and draw a rectangle at the very top of the pages. Cover the width of the document, making sure it is extended to the bleeds. On the Control bar, set the Height to 20 mm.

Using the Add Anchor Point Tool (=), add an anchor on the first fold guide. Using the Direct Selection Tool (A), select the point and move it upwards as much as you’d like. We are adding some movement to the inside as the exterior is static.

Head over to the Swatches panel, and select the color yellow.

Step 10

Select the Rectangle Tool (M) from the toolbar. Draw a rectangle that fits Page 4-5 and a second rectangle that covers Page 6.

Select the first rectangle and set the Height to 100 mm on the Control bar. Select the second rectangle and set the Height to 120 mm.

Using the Direct Selection Tool (A), select the top inside points of the rectangles and move both downwards.

Step 11

Select the left object and press Command-D to Place an image. Select the Young people brainstorming and click Open. Select the image and head over to the Control bar. Set the Scale to 10%.

Place an image on the right-hand side object. Select the Businessman working file, and click Open. Select the image and head over to the Control bar. Set the Scale to 35%.

Let’s apply the same color effect here as the outside panel. Select both objects and press Command-C to Copy and Command-V to Paste. Using the Direct Selection Tool (A), select the image within the object and press Backspace to Delete.

Select both objects and head over to the Swatches panel. Set the color to purple. On the Effect panel, set the Blending Mode to Color.

Great job! We’ve finished working on the Images layer, and now it’s time to work on the Copy layer. Head over to the Layers panel, lock the Images layer, and select the Copy layer.

3. How to Format Type Using Paragraph Styles in Adobe InDesign

Paragraph styles allow us to add formatting attributes to be applied to large amounts of text. This is useful if you want to maintain the same type settings throughout your design. Therefore, the styles will keep your template flawless and cohesive. For this tutorial, we will create two styles: headline and body copy.

Step 1

Head over to Window > Paragraph Styles. On the Paragraph Styles panel, select the New Paragraph Style option from the main menu.

In the New Paragraph Style window option, select Basic Character Formats in the left menu. Set the Style Name to Headline. Use the following settings for Basic Paragraph Formats options:

Font Family: Sentral

Font Style: ExtraBold

Size: 20 pt

Tracking: -15

Click OK.

Let’s add a second Paragraph Style. This time, let’s name it Body Copy and use the following settings for the Basic Character Formats options:

Font Family: Sentral

Font Style: Regular

Size: 10 pt

Tracking: -5

Click OK.

Step 2

Let’s work on the first spread, Pages 1-3.

Let’s use our new Paragraph Styles. On the Toolbar, select the Text Tool (T). Create a text box on Page 1.

Add the copy you wish to add. To format the text box, select the headline using the Text Tool (T) and click on the Headline style from the Paragraph Styles panel. Select the rest of the body copy and select the Body Copy style from the Paragraph Styles panel.

Select the text box and head over to the Swatches panel. Select the [Paper] color, which will make the type legible against the background.

On Page 2, add a small tagline and contact information—this is great to have on the back of the template. Set the tagline to the Headline style. When applying a Paragraph Style to a text box, you can change the format through the Control bar. This will only change the format on the text box you are selecting and not on the style. Set the contact information to Body Copy and change the Size to 9 pt on the Control bar.

On the Swatches panel, select the color purple for both elements.

Page 3 is the front of the brochure, so add a headline here that describes the information inside. Set the format to Headline style from the Paragraph Style panel. Using the same method as before, select the first line and head over to the Control bar. Change the Family to Regular. This small detail can add something special that will set this headline apart from the rest of the content.

On the Swatches panel, select the color purple.

Step 3

Let’s work on the inside panels. On the Layers panel, select Pages 4-6.

Using the Text Tool (T), create a text box on all three pages. With the help of the Paragraph Styles, format the contents.

Let’s add some vectors on Page 5. Open the 150 Line icons file on Adobe Illustrator. Press Command-G to Ungroup the icons. Select the first three icons from the first row. Press Command-C to Copy.

Head back into Adobe InDesign and press Command-V to Paste the icons. Press Command-G to Ungroup the objects. On the Swatches panel, set the color to yellow.

Head over to the Control bar and activate the Constrain Proportions button. Set the Width to 13 mm. Move the icons to the left side within the margins of Page 5.

To make space for each icon, we can use the Text Wrap option. Go to Window > Text Wrap to open the panel. Select all three icons and select the Wrap around bounding box button. Set the Bottom Offset to 6 mm and the Right Offset to 3 mm.

Using the Swatches panel, set the sub-heading color to yellow. This will make it easier for the reader to distinguish this section from the regular copy.

Let’s work on Page 6. Use the Paragraph Styles to format the text.

A great tip when working with bullet points is to use hanging punctuations. This means that the lines after the first line are indented and aligned to the first line (vertically). Avoiding having any text under the bullet point makes for a sharper design.

To do this, we can add an Indent to Here special character by pressing Command- after the bullet point. To see if this is activated, head over to Type > Show Hidden Characters. The Indent to Here should be shown as a dagger.

4. How to Export a PDF File for Printing

Before exporting a file for printing, it's useful to take a look around all the edges of the brochure. This is to make sure all the images and vectors bleeding out are touching the bleeds. Press W to go between Preview mode and Normal mode.

Remember that each fold will be represented by a crop mark. Let your professional printer know to avoid confusion. It is also helpful to ask for a printer's proof to make sure the project is printed correctly.

Step 1

To export the file, go to File > Export. Name the file trifold brochure and choose Adobe PDF (Print) from the Format drop-down menu. Click Save.

Step 2

In the Export Adobe PDF window, set the Adobe PDF Preset to Press Quality. Under Pages, select Export As Spreads.

On the left side of the panel, select Marks and Bleeds. Check All Printer’s Marks and Use Document Bleed Settings. Click Export. You will have a ready-to-print PDF file.
