You should be able to do this with the textpos package described at

The whole point of this package is to be able to typeset elements at
absolute positions on a page.  You should be able to use \rule commands
to draw lines, in absolute-positioned locations using textpos.

If you can send me a LaTeX file and tell me where you'd like the fold
marks to be, I can have a go at modifying the file to use textpos this
way.  Then modifying the source template should be reasonably
straightforward ...
