    • - Leather Colour. The 2.5mm is available in mid brown, dark brown and black.

      -  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.
    • -  Your tray/box and your inner cover will need covering. These can be done in either book cloth or faux leather.

      -  There is no extra charge for having more than one colour or how and where you use them.

      -  There is however a one off charge for using a non standard material.

      -  For the outer cover we strongly suggest you use either a Buckram or Faux Leather as these can be wiped clean. Windsor and Colorado book cloths cannot!

      -  Please see all the fabrics and colours here:  H&Co Colour Swatch Guide.

      -  We strongly urge you to request fabric samples from us if you are in any doubt about your choice.
    • -  How. There are 2 options open to you regarding your personalisation. Either we can set out your wording using one of our house fonts, which can be found here
      Alternatively, you can send us finished and ready to use artwork in the form of an .ai or .eps (vector) file. Our finished artwork specification can be found here. 
      -  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
                                    Blind Deboss                                 Foil Stamping
    • 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).

      For current lead times between ordering and dispatch as well as shipping costs please click on this link: Delivery lead times and shipping costs.
    • 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.

      When can you expect to receive you order? At the bottom of your order confirmation email you will see a production week date, we aim to ship out at the end of that week. For more info on delivery, click on the delivery tab above.

      Our covers are a durable 4mm thick. The trays are made by laminating 2mm board, creating a step joint and then glueing them together.

      All this effort is partly down to traditional box making techniques, but mainly, it is because this is how you make the strongest possible box.
