Hartnack & Company are a small family business located in the rural and beautiful county of Devon in England.
Things began in 2014, in our spare room, when the need arose for a certificate binder for our daughter. Since then things have moved on a bit and we have grown into what you see on these pages.
As a family business, we take what we produce personally. We aim to deliver a superior quality product surpassing the expectations of those who buy what we make for them, and hopefully making a few friends along the way.
"A beautiful product which oozes quality. A truly bespoke experience with the wide choice of materials and customisation options, combined with craftspeople who obviously care about the work they are producing."
Edward R. (U.K) Photographers Clamshell Portfolio Box
"The design portfolio and box were beautifully made and the execution was flawless. The customer service was incredible and the package shipped to the United States quicker than expected. Designers, these custom portfolios from Hartnack and Company are a great way to stand out to potential employers and design clients! Best career investment I ever made."
"...From start to finish the procedure, craftsmanship and delivery is second to none. They show off my images so well and the portfolios look so good either on a coffee table or on shelves. An excellent company to deal with. You will not find better."

"I had been searching for a way to keep all my random papers put away so my home office desk looked neat and tidy. I came across Hartnack & Co and saw how beautiful their boxes were with a myriad of color choices. This type of craftsmanship is so difficult to come by these days. They extremely helpful and patient with my questions and sending me sample swatches. The boxes arrived quickly as well. You won’t be disappointed in these products."
"We were looking for a way to really preserve the cherished history of our classic 62 year old Jaguar . Nick and Jackie helped us find exactly the right leather, colour and design to truly reflect the car, and preserve its unique history . Not only is it a pleasure to have but it will surely add to the value in the long term . It was a pleasure dealing with them from beginning to end ."
"Fabulous quality of product. Never seen such detail and finish anywhere else, and the chance to have a bespoke design according to requirements was a bonus. Nothing too much trouble, a pleasure to work with. This company certainly knows it's industry!"
"My portfolio binder was very well crafted and looks exactly like the photos on the website. They were great about staying in touch, even though I live in a different country. Once my portfolio was finished, it arrived within the week after shipping. It was absolutely worth the price and a great investment if you plan on using yours for a long time. It looks professional and willdefinitely stand out amongst other portfolios."
"The book I ordered was for a very special project to me and therefore needed to be of timeless quality, which it was. The product turned out beautifully and I will not hesitate to re-order from Hartnack & Co. in the future. I highly recommend"

As the Sotheby’s catalogue entry says “Accompanying the car is a truly immense file of documentation…” enough to fill two 65mm ring binders and two 100mm deep box files as it happens. A car with this much pedigree, history and provenance is going to come with a lot of paper work.
