You can configure your print job very easily online. Start right here!
Have job application folders printed − for an optimal first impression
Digitization has affected the job application procedure as much as anything. However, many CEOs and human resources directors continue to have faith in written application documents, from the cover sheet and the printed-out CV right through to the letter of application and the folder. Therefore, it is all the more important that not only is the content correct but also that the look and feel of the job application folder present the application in an appropriate way. In order to stand out from conventional folders, at print24.com you have the option of printing and finishing your own customised job application folder.
High-quality design, with different versions available
We always use two-sided printing for job application folders, so you can design both the front and back. In total, you have a choice of ten different A4 versions. The number of flaps varies from two to four. Depending on how much space there should be in the folder for the cover letter, enclosed documents or certificates and references, you can choose between spine widths of 1 mm up to 10 mm. On request, your job application folder can have a clasp or a window that gives a view of part of the application or the covering letter. If documents need to be securely attached to the folder, select the job application folders with two flaps and a filing fastener.
Four paper types for your job application folders
For the printing, you have a choice of two wood-free, white, double-coated premium coated printing papers in weights of 250 gsm and 350 gsm, as well as a 400-gsm premium card and a high-bulk, 300-gsm chromo board with an uncoated reverse side that can be written on. The coated printing papers can, on request, be finished with dispersion varnish in gloss.
Many different finishing options
The outside of your job application folder can be given many different finishes. Cellophane finishing in matt or gloss gives folders an additional protective layer. Hot foil flat or relief embossing ensures an especially tactile feel. UV coating or UV spot varnish allow special visual accents to be created. Combinations of different finishes, as well as blind embossing, are also possible.
Colour options for job application folder printing at print24.com
In addition to 4/0 CMYK four-colour printing, you can print your job application folders using HKS or Pantone spot colours and with silver and gold. A combination of spot colours and CMYK is also possible. The colour numbers can simply be entered online via the configuration menu. Spot colours are, for example, recommended for colour areas that go across more than one page.
When creating the print file for your job application folder, please bear the following in mind
Your print file should be in PDF, JPEG or TIFF format and have a minimum print resolution of 300 dpi. For coated printing paper, it is best to use the colour profile “ISO Coated v2 (FOGRA 39L)”, and for offset and recycled papers, “PSO Uncoated ISO12647 (FOGRA 47L)” should be used. In this case, avoid spot or special colours. Remember to keep all text and images at least 1.5 mm away from the edges. Also, add a bleed of 2 mm on every side that is going to be trimmed.
Screen proof or paper proof
If you want to know in advance how your job application folders will look once they have been printed, at print24.com you can request a paper proof or a screen proof. For the paper proof, we create a FOGRA-certified preprint, which we will post to you. For the screen proof, we send a digital preview of your print job to your customer account.
In both cases, you can take the time to look at the result and decide whether you want to continue with or cancel the print job. If you decide to cancel, there is no additional cost to you apart from the charge for the proof. Please bear in mind that if you want to make subsequent changes to the print file, you cannot then create another proof. In this case, you would have to create a new print job for your job application folders.
