  • Size? Is based on the size of the media being placed inside the portfolio or binder. We work on generic international and US sizes, but can make to any size. If the size of the media 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.

     - Orientation? Portrait means the media sits vertically and is bound along the long edge.
    Landscape means the media sits horizontally and is bound along the short edge.

    - Binder Mechanism? The best guide we can forward you to is the one we have set out on this page here, Ring Binder Mechanisms, which explains what we have, what we can get and also capacity.

     - Protectors, Sleeves or Hinge Strips? This is important for us to know. If your page is being placed in page protectors/pockets, then we must allow for the cover to be larger height and width. Also our H&Co pockets maybe a different size to other suppliers, which is why we ask this question.
    If using file or hinge strips, your portfolio will be narrower but longer than page protectors.

      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

                     Portfolio leather thickness        portfolio leather thickness curved
        -  Texture. The texture of these two leathers differ in that the 2.5mm has a lot of texture and the 3.5mm has a lot less. That said!! This is a generalisation, as each batch of leather can vary in texture. portfolio leather texture comparison
        - Leather Colour. The 3.5mm is available in brown and black...
                    3.5mm brown leather sample   3.5mm black leather sample
        ... and the 2.5mm is available in mid brown, dark brown and black.
        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.
      • -  Back Inner Cover.  This part of the portfolio holds the binding mechanism in place, so is an integral part of the portfolio.
        This has to have a cover on it and there is a wide variety of fabrics and materials to do this with. The fabric swatch can be found here. H&Co Fabric Swatch. 
        - Front Inner Cover. We offer this as either covered or uncovered, as below. If you choose covered it will be in the same material as you choose for the back cover.

        -  We recommend buckram book cloth if you are looking for something hard waring as it can be wiped clean. Windsor and Colorado book cloth can mark and are certainly not water resistant.
        -  If you are in doubt about any of the fabric colours or textures, we will happily send you out samples. Just use the Contact Us button on the top Menu bar and request what you would like to see.

        -  Where. Your personalisation can be placed anywhere you like on the cover.
        -  Can I have more than one? Yes, you can have as many personalisations as you like, but each will require a new die. A die is a metal plate we get made that stamp into the leather and therefore an extra charge will apply.  
        -  What are my personalisation options? There are 2 options on having your folder personalised. They are:
                      blind deboss personalisation on leather gold foil personalisation on leather portfolio cover

          • Size? Is based on the size of the media being placed inside the box, not the box size itself. We work on generic international and US sizes, but can make to any size. If the size of the media you are using 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.

             - Orientation? Portrait means the media sits vertically. The box can open either on the longest side (opening like a book from right to left). Or, it can open on the shorter bottom end flipping over from bottom to top
            Landscape means the media sits horizontally The box can open on the shorter edge (opening like a book from right to left) or on the longer edge from bottom flipping over to the top.

             - Depth of Box? Is largely determined by the size of binder mechanism you select. We have set a list of sizes, but we can make to any size. If you would like something deeper than the 8cm listed, a new menu box will open up asking you how big. 

            - Binder Mechanism? The best guide we can forward you to is the one we have set out on this page here, Ring Binder Mechanisms, which explains what we have, what we can get and also capacity.

              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

                  Where. Your personalisation can be placed anywhere you like on the cover. For instance, the bottom right hand corner or centre and a third of the way up. In order to do this we make a metal die plate of your name. (below)
                                             
                  Having made the metal stamp of your name for the cover, we can also use the same die plate to stamp elsewhere, i.e. On the spine (cost £20.00).

                  Can I have a different one elsewhere? Yes, you can have as many as you like, but each new personalisation will require a new metal die plate (as above) and therefore an extra charge.  

                  Choose Your Typeface. When ordering you will be asked to choose a typeface/font. A clearer version can be found here, but for reference please see below.

                  If none of the above appeal to you, you can tell us another font, but it would depend upon whether we have it available in our Adobe Fonts system.

                  When do you need it by? We understand that you have an interview deadline, so we will ask you when ordering what that is. If for whatever reason we can't make your portfolio by then, we'll let you know within 24 hours of ordering.

                  Can there be hold ups? Yes, but these are mainly always down to not getting confirmations back regarding personalisation proofs. If we haven't heard from you we will not get your die made until we hear that you are happy with the spelling and positioning of your name. We get our metal dies made once a week, so we have to have deadlines.

                  How do you deliver? We use DHL couriers and their next day delivery service. You should get an email from them when your portfolio has been collected from us and tracking details.

                  If you buy dividers from WH Smith, Staples, etc than we just need to remind you that they need to be A4+ or A4 Wide to accommodate the page protectors.
