US letter Multipage Bi-Fold Brochure Mockup
Multipage brochures are indeed created in multiples of four because a single sheet of paper printed on both sides and folded in half results in four pages. An 8-page brochure is the minimum for such a layout, providing sufficient space for information distribution without appearing cluttered.
During the printing process, these brochures are printed on large sheets of paper, often including multiple pages per sheet, depending on the layout. Trim marks are added to the design by prepress operators, guiding the cutting process to ensure that each page is the correct size. Once the pages are cut, they are collated in the correct order and then bound together. There are various binding methods available, but saddle stitching (staple binding) is one of the most common due to its cost-effectiveness and simplicity. Perfect binding provides a more polished look and is often used for higher-end publications.
The mockup you're mentioning is a useful tool for graphic designers to present their brochure designs in a realistic setting without the need to print a physical copy. With smart objects in Photoshop, designers can easily insert their artwork into the mockup and instantly see how it would appear in a real-life scenario.
