  • Classic Clamshell Box.  Also known as a Solander Box, the job of a clamshell box is to keep its contents safe and undamaged. The two trays fold snuggly into each other providing double thick walls.

    -  Any Size or Format.  What you see in the pictures is an A3, Landscape format, clamshell box, but it could be in any size from A6 and the biggest we've made is A0 (we also make to any U.S. sizes as well). The same applies to the depth of the boxes, just lets us know the depth you need. 

    -  Bespoke To Your Requirements.  Just like a bespoke suit or dress, this item is custom made just for you. This means that the size, the colour of the trays, the outer colour, whether it has internal pockets or not is completely up to you.

     -  Need Help.  Hopefully all answers you'll need are in the tabbed section above, but if by any chance you have any further questions or any problems, then please feel free to call us.

    -  There is however a one off charge for using a non standard material.

    Hartnack and co house fontsAlternatively, you can send us finished and ready to use artwork in the form of an .ai or .eps file. It must be right reading. Anything stamped must be in black (not greyscale or colour) on a white background. No JPEG's or PNG files please. Our finished artwork specification can be found here.

    Can I have more than one? Yes, you can have as many personalisations as you like, but each will require a new die and therefore an extra charge

          mid brown 2.5mm leather sample dark brown 2.5mm leather black 2.5mm leather
          -  Provenance & Process.  We source our leather from a UK wholesaler who in-turn sources directly from a tannery in Italy. Our hides are bovine (cow) hides, full grain (top of the skin down) that have been vegetable 'veg' tanned and dyed through. The hides are 'tumble finished', which means they are placed in a large drum and then gently spun or "tumbled" for a period of time. This process breaks down the fibres in the hide, not only making it slightly softer, but also making the surface of the hide more textured. The thinner the hide, the more textured it is becomes.
          - Worth Mentioning.  We use "non corrected grain" hides. (they have not had a false skin grain stamped into the surface). Therefore while we do out best to ensure that we use the best surface available on the front cover, certain skin marks (stretching, bites and scars) may be apparent.
          Also, being natural (non corrected) hides, some hides might be more textured (or less textured) than others.
          We have a more comprehensive page on leather here.

              -  There is however a one off charge for using a non standard material.

              -  For the outer cover we strongly suggest you use either a Buckram or Faux Leather as these can be wiped clean. Windsor and Colorado book cloths cannot!

              -  Please see all the fabrics and colours here:  H&Co Colour Swatch Guide.

              -  We strongly urge you to request fabric samples from us if you are in any doubt about your choice.

              Where. Your personalisation can be placed anywhere you like. In order to do this we make a metal die of your name/logo. We can also use the same die to stamp, to make a second stamp to stamp the same thing elsewhere, i.e. On the spine (cost £20.00).

              Can I have more than one? Yes, you can have as many personalisations as you like, but each will require a new die and therefore an extra charge

              • If there is one accessory worth considering for your portfolio, it is a Slipcase.  For the simple reason being that it provides protection for your portfolio and album.

                -  Traditionally Made. Which means it's going to be a lot stronger. Ten pieces of board laminated together and then step jointed and glued at the corners and edges - It's a lot more work but this pays dividends in rigidity and strength needed. 

                -  Bespoke To Your Requirements.  We couldn't even start the project unless we had the portfolio, album, or book here to build the slipcase around. Just like a bespoke suit or dress, this item is custom made around what it is enclosing or wrapping.

                Fully lined inside and out.  Your slipcase is fully lined inside with a material of your choice because it's the attention to detail that people notice. It takes more time, but it's done properly. 

                 -  Need Help.  Hopefully all answers you'll need are in the tabbed section above, but if by any chance you have any further questions or any problems, then please feel free to call us.

              • How. Mostly our customers use the same personalisation that they have for their portfolio or album. It still carries an extra stamping charge, but does not require an extra die being made.

              • Size? Is based on the size of the portfolio, album or book that is being placed inside the slipcase. We work on generic international and US sizes, but can make to any size. If the size of the binder that we are making the slipcase around is not mentioned here we will either ask you to pick the closest size we feature (for pricing purposes) and then you can tell what size the media is, or will make out a special order for you.

                 - Finger Notches? These are the little moon cuts that you see cut into the side of the slipcase. It is still possible to take your portfolio out of the slipcase without them, but they are an optional extra.
