Announcing our new Portfolios and fabrics range
June 6, 2014
We’ve been busy and are thrilled to announce our new Portfolios and fabrics range.
Since we launched our popular Prints Service, we’ve had quite a few enquiries about presentation cases and, as a result, we’ve set to work on creating a product that fits the bill and is a great addition to our range.
Enter our new Portfolios. Simple but stylish, they can be stood on end for display, or kept close. Whatever your clients choose to do with them, they are a brilliant way to showcase your very best images. Hand-made with the same exacting attention to detail as the rest of the stuff that leaves our workshop, they are available across our size range in 12’’ x 12’’, 10’’ x 10’’, 8’’ x 8’’ and 6’’ x 6’’.
Our Portfolios come in duo or trio form and you can work with our easy-to-use templates to get the layout you want for each ‘side’. For example, you could opt for a single, portrait image opposite two landscape apertures. Or, alternatively, choose a plain board as a place for guests to add personal messages or signatures. One line of engraving on the cover comes as standard and our 6’’ x 6’’ versions give you the option of adding an envelope for your DVD or – coming soon – a holder for your 8GB USB.
We’re excited, too, to have sourced a fabulous new paper for our Portfolios in the form of a baryta-based paper we’ve called Gallery Pearl. It brings out the vibrancy and richness of images and has excellent archival properties. It’s a luxury paper but comes as standard. However the option remains to order one of our other papers, if you prefer. Our mounts are conservation-grade and white for clean and timeless appeal.
Now for more about the covers themselves. You can choose from rayon-based fabrics that have the best possible eco credentials and that come in two beautiful colour ranges. The first, a selection of light and fresh pastels, includes Dove, Tallow, Avocado, Candyfloss, Sky and Silver Moss. The second stronger, edgier range features Mustard, Clover Mulberry, Damson, Midnight Blue and Jet. Our third option is a pure cotton cover, which has an essential palette of its own in Hop, Peppermint, Denim, Spice, Ketchup and Carbon.
Match the case to colours in your images or reflect the theme – Candyfloss pink for a baby girl, perhaps, or how about a sumptuous Damson for a boudoir shoot?
And the really good news is that the new fabric colour options go across our products allowing you to combine or contrast with our main albums and mini-copies, included in the standard price.
Because of this, we think the Portfolios deserve to share a little of the glory when an album arrives – either as gifts for friends or relatives, or as a complimentary extra to say ‘thank you’ to your clients.
Portfolios are available to order through our online store. We aim for a turnaround of five days. They are dispatched wrapped in tissue paper or you can choose to upgrade to a cotton presentation bag.
Please browse our Portfolios page for more information and a first peek at our glorious new fabric colours!
Please note: As the new materials have been selected to work across the entire range of albums from 12×12 down to mini copies, we have removed the Colour Cotton and Canvas ranges.
Colour Cotton and Canvas will still be available on special request should you have a customer with their heart set on a specific colour – expect for Aqua and Magnolia, which we can no longer source. Please get in touch for more information and to check stock.
