Leather Personalised Medical Portfolio - Ring Binder & Lever Arch Mechanism

  • -   Custom Made, Single Piece Leather Portfolio.  Made from a single piece of premium full grain, veg tanned Italian leather. Just like a bespoke suit or dress, this item is custom made to your specification of colour, materials and personalisation. We are effectively starting with a blank page and you tell us via the questions on the right, what you would like. 

    -  Personalised Your Way. There is no limit to type size, length or how many lines you would like, embellishments or indeed what you would like the title of your portfolio to say or where you would like it placed on the cover (and or the spine). The portfolio can be made to fit A6, A5, A4, A3 & A2 sizes based on specifications provided. More information can be found by clicking the tabs above. 

    -  Bespoke To Your Requirements.  This personalised leather binder is custom made just for you. This means that the size, the leather, the inner colour whether it has internal pockets or not is completely up to you. More information can be found by clicking the tabs above .

    In a Wide Variety of Binder Mechanisms.  Lever arch or ring binder. From 45mm to 120mm, you'll be spoilt for choice. We've dedicated a whole page, to what's available which can be found on this link here, Ring Binder and Lever Arch Mechanisms

     -  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. 
  • Our Leather. While we would love to justify the price of these covers as mainly down to the fact that they are all individually hand made, but a considerable percentage is down to the cost (and the quality) of the leather. We use top grain, 3 - 4mm thick, Italian vegetable tanned, tumble finished hides - more information on our leather can be found on this page page here (but the short story is, we use the best quality thick leather available).
    You have a choice of 3 different colours. Brown, Dark Brown and Black

  • -  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. 
  • How. Your portfolios can be personalised in a number of different ways.

    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)

    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.

    For more information. Our guide to personalisation can be found on this page here: Guide To Personalisation.
  • -  You can have internal pockets on the inner covers, for instance a business card pocket or a full length horizontal pocket. These is a surcharge for this and a examples can be seen here.
    -  Pockets can be specified via the ordering process in the column to the right of this tab.
    -  If there is something you would like, but isn't available, please ask.
  • Our process runs as follows. Our process runs as follows. Your order enters the production queue the moment you check out. Within a few minutes of having placed an order, you will receive via email, an Order Confirmation sheet. At the bottom of this page you will find an expected despatch date. (Please make sure you reply to this email as it ensures we have understood your order correctly and will not start making your order until we have this confirmation).

    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.

     - Plastic Page Protectors? We sell A4 sized, top loading, polypropylene plastic page protectors that are 110 micron thick and glass clear. These are archive safe, so will not affect the printed contents in future years. They can be ordered here. PLEASE NOTE, these do not fit 4 Ring Binders.
