  • Definition:

    With French folds the paper is folded with crossfolds (right angle folds), sometimes with a short first fold. The shorter portion or head in french folds may be folded to the inside (heads in) or outside (heads out).

    Eight-panel french folds with even panels (no short heads) are commonly called quarter-fold or 8-panel right angle folds. Traditionally this type of quarter-fold was printed only on one side and used to create greeting cards or invitations. It's a popular format with many creative printing software programs.

    Also Known As: quarter-fold | cross-folds | 8-panel right angle fold
