Yes we do. Single sided prints are $1.99 and double sided prints are $3.79 on 80 lb or 100 lb text paper. Cardstock is available upon request. We use the latest XEROX Digital Press so the quality is excellent. Please let us know if you require printing.
Yes, we sell hinge strips for $13.95 for a pack of 10. Hinge strips are made from a clear-flexi material and attach to the left hand side of your work and have holes that align with the holes of the binding. Your pages will bend properly and lie flat and you won’t need to worry about creating margins or a gutter for your printed pages.Let us know if you need these when placing your custom portfolio order.
No. Parts can only be cut from materials we supply to guarantee a high quality product . You can use other materials to add to your design once you receive your portfolio book.
You can choose from acrylic in white, black, red, green, and blue. You can also choose from bamboo and brushed silver and bronze aluminum. Learn more about available materials
You have to use vector art software such as Adobe Illustrator. You must save your final design as an AI file. Please read the design guideline
for a step-by-step-guide.
We have chosen to use .ai files because they have a greater degree of accuracy than other file formats. This means you have greater control over your design. Also, this is a file type that can easily be read and understood by our machines.
You’ll need to find a graphic designer to help you out. If you’re at a loss, we can convert your file into the proper format for a cost of $50/ hour.
You can view our full pricing details on the right hand side of this page. We can offer you a custom quote for projects that have a larger scope.
Once you receive a quote and if you’d like to move forward with a portfolio, we’ll create a proof specifying all of the design details so you know exactly what you’re getting before you sign off on it.
The cut-off for custom portfolios created for the week is every Sunday. If your proof is approved and payment is made by this day, your custom portfolio will be ready to ship in one week.
The outside dimension of the portfolio is larger than the specific page size. Please refer to the product details for the specific portfolio size and dimensions.
Yes, you can add and remove pages simply by removing the screwposts, adding additional work, and tightening the screwposts back in to place.
We provide complimentary screwpost extenders with your order so you can comfortably include 80-100 pages in your custom portfolio.

Shipping to the UK, Australia, Asia, and the Middle East is 85-$100 and will take 4-7 days to arrive.
If upon receiving your custom portfolio book, the item is defected or incorrect, we’ll make sure to get another portfolio in your hands.
