Hartnack & Co

So simple, but as a portfolio or binder so beautiful. The leather is the key to this exceptionally tactile portfolio. We use our 3.5mm thick, Italian veg tanned, top grain leather, which just begs to be picked up and handled. The portfolio comes in A4 size or 8.5" x 11". 

The second key is that is can be personalised so easily and so effectively using a blind deboss as an effective way of making it distinctively yours.
Lastly is the practicality of the exposed screw post binding method. Put two pages or put in two hundred pages, it's just a matter of changing the length of the posts. It can either grow with you, or it can be used for multiple presentations with varying number of pages.

Price does not include plastic sleeves.

     -  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.
  • While we would love to justify the price of these covers as mainly down to the fact that they are individually hand made, 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

    We can stamp your logo along with some lettering on the front cover. In order to do this we need to make a metal (magnesium) tooling die (stamp) of your logo and any lettering that goes with it.

    The format of your logo artwork must be in a vector file. This would have the last digits of the file either, .eps or .ai. More information on what we need can be found on this page here.
  • You may or may not want plastic page protectors in your covers.
    This will be a question we will ask because it affects the actual size of the cover.
    If you do want page protectors, we sell them and the link to the page can be found here. They are a glass clear, medium to heavy weight, 110 micron polypropylene premium quality cover.
  • 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).

  • How many pages can I place inside them? As many or as little as you like as this is determined by the length of post we supply you and these can be changed for longer or shorter ones.
    How easy is it to change the pages? Very easy. The photo's above should give you an idea, other wise a guide can be found here.
    Do you give a discount for larger quantities? Yes we do, but you would have to contact us with details of what you need. Send an email to jackie@hartnackandco.com
    How quickly can you supply us? Largely this depends on how many orders we have on books at the time of your order, how many you need and how quickly we receive your payment, your artwork and confirmations. If all of this is done within 24 hours then we can normally turn things round quickly.
