Colours

Step 1 – Choosing your leather portfolio colour…

Your leather portfolio is available in a range of colours made from 3mm top grain hide. Every hide is carefully chosen and because this is a natural product each piece of leather is individual with its own history. The character in each skin will vary, making your portfolio unique. Feel free to request sample colour swatches. It is possible to dye leather to any colour but this is only available when ordering six books or more.

Because Black and Dark Brown have a shorter tanning process they are slightly cheaper than the other colours available.

Size

Step 2 – Portfolio size and orientation

portfolio size comparison chart

Standard sizes that we produce include:

  • 10 x 8″ Portfolio  (254mm x 203.2mm)

  • A4  Portfolio (210mm x 297mm)

  • 11 x 14″ Portfolio (279.4mm x 355.6mm)

  • A3  Portfolio (297mm x 420mm)

  • 12 x 18″ Portfolio (304.8mm x 457.2mm)

  • A3+ Portfolio (330.2mm x 482.6mm)

Every size is available in landscape or portrait formats. If you have a non-standard size in mind please contact us to discuss prices.

Please note: The portfolio ‘size’ relates to the size of the sleeves or contents of the portfolio. The actual size of the portfolio cover will be slightly larger to accommodate and protect the content.

Personalise

Step 3 – Personalise your portfolio cover with your name, business name or corporate logo

Blind Debossing

Personalise your presentation portfolio with your name or company logo.

The process we use is blind debossing, a letterpress printing process (often misleadingly referred to as embossing). Debossing differs, as the design is pressed/indented into the surface without the use of an ink or dye. In order to achieve this refined and timeless effect a metal block of text or “made-to-order” custom logo block will be created for your portfolio.

There are three options:

  • Standard text debossing using Times (Traditional serif font)

  • Standard text debossing using Helvetica (Modern sans-serif font)

  • Bespoke debossing – your logo or font of your choice

When choosing the Standard debossing let us know what name/words you would like to appear on your cover. (wording must fit on one line)

The bespoke option pays for a custom block to be made with your logo design or alternative font of choice. Once you have placed your order you will be asked to send us an image file of the design.

The design will need to be a high resolution jpeg/tiff/png or scalable vector file (@300dpi). Ideally in black and white.

Please note: We are unable to dye or tint the debossed area to a different colour.

 

Binding

Step 4 – The Binding – With sleeves or without

The 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 is secured closed with magnetic discs. (see image below with the hinge open) Please note that your portfolio will not lay completely flat for double page spreads.

Sleeves

High quality archival sleeves

Sleeves are the most popular option to display and protect your content. Made from crystal clear archival quality polyester they are specifically made to fit your portfolio. Sleeves come with either black or white removable inserts depending on your preference. Your work simply slides into place from the top or bottom. Your content 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 but you should be aware that this will become a very heavy portfolio.

Our sleeves are only designed to fit a Lovegrove supplied leather portfolio.

Sleeveless

or go sleeveless?

Alternatively 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.

Please Note: A standard 2-hole office hole punch available for all good stationers is suitable for a 10×8 landscape portfolio.

 

Inner Covers

Additional Options – Protective Inner Covers

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 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 sometimes transfer fibres onto the first page.
