Bespoke Leather Portfolios – Presentation at its best

Display Portfolios for photographers, artists, designers or business presentations.

Bespoke leather portfoliosMake the best first impression you can with one of these stunning portfolios. We have now become an online supplier of the fine leather bound portfolios as used by Damien Lovegrove for the past five years. They are made from a single piece of sumptuous high quality leather and offer a new approach to photography presentation. “Everyone who has seen my portfolios are impressed by the simply beautiful presentation” says Damien. “It is really easy to chop and change the prints around and I constantly update the order and print selection in my Portfolios”. Each folio will take up to 40 sleeves (80 prints) in their normal guise. Folios with larger capacities are available upon request.

Normal turnaround is 10 days from order to delivery. All portfolios are tailor made to order using the finest materials.

Colours

Choosing the colour…

The leather portfolios can be made in a range of different colours. Feel free to request sample leather colour swatches. This is a natural product and each is unique with its own history, the skins are top grain 3mm hide. Every hide is carefully chosen and the character in the skins will vary in degree but each will have been selected by us.

Leather can be dyed to any colour if ordering six books or more.

Black and Dark Brown are the most popular choices and are a less expensive option than other colour options.

Portfolio Size Comparison
Portfolio Size Comparison – Click to enlarge.

Our leather portfolios can be made to any custom size. Some standard sizes we produce include:

  • 10 x 8 inches = 254mm x 203.2mm
  • A4 = 210mm = 297mm
  • 11 x 14 inches = 279.4mm x 355.6mm
  • A3 = 297mm x 420mm
  • 12 x 18 inches = 304.8mm x 457.2mm
  • A3 Plus = 330.2mm x 482.6mm = (13 x 19 inches)

Your portfolio can also be orientated into landscape or portrait formats. Take a look at the relative size comparison chart below.

Please note:
It’s important to note that the portfolio sizes mentioned on our site relate to the size of the sleeves or the future contents of the portfolio and therefore the maximum size of prints they can hold. The actual size of the portfolio cover will be slightly larger to accommodate and protect the content.

Personalise

Personalise the cover with your name, business name or corporate logo

Blind Debossing

You can personalise your presentation portfolio with a custom debossed name or logo. You can deboss your own name, business name or logo onto the leather cover.

The process is called blind debossing as no ink or foil is used. The letters/logo will be depressed/indented into the leather rather than raised up from the surface.

There are two options:

  • Standard debossing in Times or Helvetica font or
  • Bespoke debossing

With the standard option you can choose from one of two standard typefaces to write words along a line.

The bespoke option requires a custom block to be made with the logo design or font of your choice. Once you have placed your order you will be contacted and asked to send an image file (ideally a high resolution black and white jpeg) of the design you would like debossed.

Please note – debossing can’t be dyed or tinted to a different colour.

Binding

The Binding

Portfolio Binding DetailThe sleeves or prints are bound using a pillar and post system. The metal posts/rods can be extended or made smaller to accommodate your content. Your content is sandwiched as the posts are tightened by the screw cap.

The binding is hidden from view with a hinged fabric panel that snaps shut with magnets. The image to the right (below) shows the binding with the screw posts and magnets.

These portfolios are not designed to lay completely flat for double page spreads.

Using archival sleeves…

Leather Portfolio Open

Portfolio sleeves are an optional extra to help protect your content. Made from crystal clear archival polyester they are specifically made to fit your portfolio. Sleeves come with either black or white removable inserts depending on your intention. Your prints simply slide into place from the top or bottom. They are designed like a tube with folded sides.

Your content/prints can be displayed on both sides of the sleeves and are clear from edge to edge.

Each folio will naturally take up to 40 sleeves (80 prints) in their normal guise. Larger capacity portfolios are available upon request.

Sleeves are only designed to fit a Lovegrove supplied leather portfolio.

…or going sleeveless?

Leather Portfolio SleevesAlternatively your prints can go straight into the binder without sleeves. The images will need to be printed with an extra 1” margin on the left. This margin will disappear into the binder. When you order your portfolio you can purchase our scoring template kit. If the ‘no-sleeves’ option is your intention, please tell us as our manufacturer can make the portfolio cover slightly shorter in overall length/width to take account of the content sitting inside the binding area.

Scoring template kit

Scoring Template KitThe scoring template kit is only required if you intend to go for a no-sleeves option. The kit includes a simple cardboard scoring template, hole punch and scoring tool. Different portfolios will require different types of hole punch. The kits bought for an A3 landscape, 11×14 landscape and A3+ landscape portfolios will be supplied with a 4-hole hole punch. Other sizes will be supplied with a single hole punch.

Note: A standard 2-hole office hole punch is suitable for a 10×8 landscape portfolio. Please contact us if you want the scoring template but don’t require a hole punch.

Extras

Additional Options

Inner Covers

Inner covers

The inner covers are like an extra sleeve bound in on a cloth hinge with pre-punched holes. They come in pairs, one for the front and one for the back. They are made from either black card or frosted semi-translucent polypropylene. These are a highly recommended as they help protect your first sleeve from unwanted scratches.

For portfolios without sleeves we recommend the frosted versions as the black card can transfer fibres onto first page.

Portfolio Slip Case

Portfolio Slip CaseAccessorise your portfolio with a beautifully crafted slip case. Finished in archival buckram with a leather strap these cases are designed to fit your portfolio perfectly.

Your portfolio slides into the rigid case and the strap holds everything in place.

Slip cases can be embossed with your name or logo to match your portfolio for no additional embossing costs.

Available in black only.
