Style: 3-Piece or Full Case Portfolio?

Mullenberg Designs offers Portfolio books in 2 distinct styles. The 3-Piece and The Full Case style Portfolio. We often get asked which one we recommend; What are the advantages of one over the other? Well, we love them both. They cost the same and are both built with screw post bindings making them equally easy to get into, to add or remove images.

So how do you choose one? Here are some images and features of both styles to help you with this important decision.

The 3-Piece:

As its name suggests the 3-Piece style Portfolio is built in three separate components: a front cover, back cover, and a separate spine. The separate spine piece allows you to add a splash of bold color to your exterior design without an additional cost.

The Full Case:

The Full Case style Portfolio has the look of a traditional bound book. It is built in one piece with an interior spine component. This streamlined style can be customized with a 2 fabric cover.

Cover Materials: Color, Texture & Finish

At Mullenberg Designs we offer a wide array of cover materials to customize your Portfolio Presentation. We separate our cover materials into three categories: Coated, Uncoated and Leatherette.

Coated Fabrics:Mullenberg Designs Cover Fabrics: coated

Coated: These ‘coated’ fabrics are 100% cotton. They are durable and have a contemporary look and feel. They are treated with an aqueous coating making them stain and mildew resistant and easy to clean with the wipe of a damp cloth. These fabrics pair nicely with either the Uncoated or Leatherette fabrics.

Uncoated Fabrics:Mullenberg Designs Cover Fabrics: uncoated

Uncoated: These high quality, 100% rayon book cloth fabrics have a natural finish. They offer the look and feel of linen and come in a variety of colors. Note that the lighter colors are more vulnerable to staining so we recommend using them for interior cover materials. These fabrics pair nicely with the Coated and Leatherette fabrics.

Leatherette Fabrics:Mullenberg Designs Cover Fabrics: leatherette

Leatherette: A polyurethane cover material with a look and feel of calfskin. Durability and easy clean-up make this fabric a great choice for a cover material. These fabrics pair nicely with the Coated and Uncoated fabrics and take a beautiful blind deboss.
