Accordion fold is a binding term describing a method of folding paper which when unfolded it looks like the folds of an accordion. Moreover, it is a term for two or more parallel folds that result in the sheet opening like a fan. Accordion folds are used on products such as brochures and maps. It is also known as concertina fold.

Accordian folds are simple zig-zag folds with 6-panels and two parallel folds that go in opposite directions. Each panel of the accordian fold is about the same size. Variations include half-accordian folds where one panel is half the size of the other two and engineering folds where one panel is twice the size of the other two. 8 and 10-page accordian folds are also common.
