Conference folders printed as promotional items
Project manager with format
Conference folders, writing folders, document folders – whatever you call them ,one thing is certain: these bags provide order and organisation. But they are much more than hardworking collectors for important notes, documents and instruments. Conference folders are always an expression of the person carrying them. They are taken for a walk along office corridors and through conference rooms and they lie on desks or podiums at regular meetings, important conferences or seminars. They are visible proof of writing and organisation culture for colleagues, partners and employees. Put briefly: Conference folders communicate. Their design and aesthetics therefore play an important role alongside the function. The perfect playing field for use as a promotional item.

The 4 factors for successful use of a conference folder as advertising material
Just like all promotional items, conference folders can also really open up your communicative potential if these four factors are optimally coordinated:
- Advertising message
Originality means that the conference folder should be individual and not interchangeable. It should optimally suit the target group in character, style and design and naturally also suit the advertiser The right item in the right place – that is the basic principle.
In addition, the quality must be right. Promotional items can only then be used in the long-term and ensure a friendly, trusting relationship to the product and the person giving the gift.
The use is just as important. The best looking promotional item is no good if it is not used.
The better it is to use, the better the chances of success. A conference folder is a highly functional product in itself - make sure that it can actually meet the expectations.
The last important point is the advertising message. Conference folders offer very predominant print areas, which can be used in very different ways depending on the Corporate Design and style. The range of possibilities extends from a very subtle, little print to elegant embroidery and from a metal emblem or woven label to a striking full area image print.
Features of the conference folder
As a promotional item, the recipient should of course like the conference folder first of all. There are sure to be different requirements with respect to the practical uses – depending on the scope and purpose and in which contexts the conference folder is used. There are huge difference in the product features. Possible equipment and features are as follows:
- Ring mechanism (2 or 4 hole mechanisms)
- Clamp mechanism
- Paper pad
- Integration possibilities for Smartphone, tablet
- Business card pouches
- Pen holders, pen loops
- Integrated calculator
- Inside and outside compartments
- A4 document compartments
- Press stud or magnetic clip
- Shoulder strap or handle
A4 or A5? The question of size
Also important to clarify in advance: the size of the conference folder. A4 formats are generally recommended for conferences and seminars in order to be able to put the documents straight into the folder. If these conference folders also have a shoulder strap, they can be used as little, individual bags. A smaller format such as A5 is practical for everyday office use and as a constant companion.
Which material should be used to produce conference folders?
Conference folders can be produced from almost all imaginable materials. It is important that the conference folder displays a certain rigidity, which is achieved with sewn-in supports.
Rubber loops, metal clips, metal rings and foils for transparent windows are used inside for the organiser. The outer material should also be equipped for everyday use
and should also be as easy as possible to decorate. Possible materials in the HALFAR® range are:
- Polyester – versatile, tear resistant and durable
- Felt – nice feel, elegant with laser engraving
- Truck tarpaulin – trend material, very robust, perfect for motifs in digital print
