Custom Ring Binders

We believe that ring binder portfolios should be personal. They play a vital role in creating the first impression and being able to customise them is essential. At Hartnack & Company we know what works and what doesn't in a luxury ring binder and we will provide our expertise after receiving your order, but you have the power to make your ring binder portfolio truly yours.

You have a choice of either a fabric covered ring binder or a leather ring binder. All are individually handmade and therefore they have the potential to be completely customised. This means not only can you choose your inner cover and outer cover, but you can also choose custom sizes and formats as well.

Our standard binder mechanisms come in three sizes (2.5cm, 4cm or 5cm) and are finished in a distinctive black paint.

Non-standard size and format (i.e 2, 3 or 4 ring mechanisms) are also available in nickel and we use the best parts we can get from Benson.
They are easy to use and pages are easy to access and change. Also when using a large volume of pages in plastic pockets, they are easy to read.

The size of your ring binder portfolio can also be customised. There are a few sizes as standard, the most popular being A4 but we have seen recently an increase in popularity of A3 ring binder portfolios. The other recommended sizes are 8.5" x 11", 12" x 12", 11" x 14" and 11" x 17".

More information on what binder mechanisms are available can be found here.

    -  Any Size or Format.  What you see in the pictures is an A4, portrait ring binder with a 2.5cm ring binder mechanism. It could however be in any size from A5 to A3 and all the U.S. sizes in between, in either Portrait or Landscape.

    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

    -  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...

    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.

    -  There is no extra charge for using more than one colour or material, there is however, a one off charge for using a non standard material.

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

    Typeface options for medical portfolios
    Where. Your personalisation can be placed anywhere you like. In order to do this we make a metal die of your name. We can also use the same die  to make a second impression elsewhere, i.e. On the spine (this would cost an additional £20.00).

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

    What are my personalisation options? There are 3 options on having your folder personalised. They are:
    -  Blind Deboss
    blind embossed surgical portfolio
    -  Colour Block Foiled 
    foil emboss personalisation on medical portfolio 
    -  Plaque with Name Foiled - additional surcharge.

    We make particular pocket for medical portfolios for a contents page which we place on the inside cover of your portfolio.

  • Size? Our medical portfolios are sized to fit A4 sheets of paper, placed inside plastic protectors, which in turn are separated by tabbed dividers which appear over the page protectors. 

     - How many page protectors can we place in a binder? Based on two sheets of paper per page protector, you can get approximately 100 page protectors in a 5.5cm binder and approximately 150 in a 6.5cm binder.

     - Do we make 4 ring binders? Yes we can however our plastic page protectors do not work with these very well, so you would have to purchase page protectors elsewhere.

    - What about screw post binders? Yes we can make screw post binders as well, however based on feed back we've had on medical portfolios, we've been told that information is more difficult to access quickly in a screw post binder, so in the interest of success in your interview, we no longer offer these as medical portfolios.

     - What's the quality of your page protectors like? Our page protectors are made from crystal clear, 80 micron thick, polypropylene, which is archive safe and acid free. They are closed at the sides and the bottom and you load them from the top.
    We take the quality of our products very seriously and while we don't make these ourselves, we haven't yet been able to source anything of a higher quality since our inception.
