What Is A French Fold?

French FoldA French Fold is a type of fold done on a paper folding machine. The French Fold is sometimes referred to as a cross fold or a right angle fold. This type of fold is probably one of the most difficult folds done on a paper folding machine, which is why only a select few are capable of doing it.

The French Fold requires a total of two passes. Typically the first fold is typically a letter, accordion or single fold, which is then folded again in half. This type of fold is very popular for invitations, including wedding invitations.

Because so many folds are involved, only some paper folders can do this. Our paper folders will indicate whether or not they can 100% handle a French Fold.

Some manufacturers will not mention a French Fold in their specifications even though they can handle it. If you are curious about whether or not a paper folder can handle a French Fold, we can run a test run on pretty much any paper folder we offer.

These are three models that can handle a French Fold:

  1. DE-322AF Paper Folding MachineDynafold DE-322AF Paper Folder
  2. Dynafold DE-262AF Folding Machine
  3. Martin Yale 959 Paper Folder

Feel free to contact us at 1-800-658-8788 if you need to have us test a French Fold out on a specific model of paper folder. You can find our entire selection of paper folding machines here.
