Have a preferred printer already?

Great! We can work with your printer! Let your printer know that our screw post bindings hide 3/4″ of the page’s width in the binding and to plan your image area based on that. So if your image area is 11h x 14w” your page’s final trim should be 11h x 14 3/4″w. We will send your printer a page template for punching holes in your pages to prep them for the screw post binding. If you are working with sleeves you will need to send us one so we can plot the holes in your binding to match your sleeves.  Also tell your printer we recommend 2 scores in each page, one at 7/8″ and one at 1″ from the spine. These scores help to maximize the ease with which your pages turn and lay flat in your portfolio.

Printing on your own?

Here are some helpful tips:

The final trim of your page: When considering your final paper trim, take into account your art board (e.g. 11h x 14w landscape) and add an extra 3/4″ on the left side of the page, which would make your final trim for an 11 x 14 landscape image, 11″h x 14 3/4″w.  This extra 3/4″ on the left side of the page is where the holes are punched for the post binding and is hidden in the binding.

– if printing full-bleeds it’s recommended to print on larger format paper, and when building your files to extend your bleeds 1/8″ on all bled sides beyond your crops. For example, if you’re printing 11h x 14w full-bleed images, we suggest printing on 13 x 19 paper, and extending your bleeds on the top, bottom, fore edge and into the gutter 1/8″.

Portfolio Presentation / Maine / BookBindery

If you’re in the market for a custom built Print Portfolio Mullenberg Design’s has a custom Presentation Solution for you. We offer 2 distinct styles of Portfolio books. The Full-Case style Portfolio and the 3-Piece style Portfolio. Each of these styles is built with a screw post binding making it easy for you to update and edit your print portfolio.

So… which style is best for you?

Let’s review the differences between the 2 styles to help you make this important decision.

The Mullenberg Designs Full-Case Portfolio

The Full Case Portfolio is also called the 1-Piece Portfolio because the front and back cover and the spine are built as one piece with an interior spine piece insert. This portfolio has the look of a traditional bound book.

You can add a splash of color and personalize your Full Case Portfolio with a 2-Fabric Cover. This customization allows you to control how much of the fabric will wrap around the spine and onto the Portfolio covers. The portfolio pictured below has a 2-Fabric Cover wrap of 3 inches. You can  have as little as an 1/8 of an inch of fabric wrapped onto the front and back covers for just a hint of color.

Mullenberg Designs 2 Fabric Cover Full Case Style Portfolio

The Mullenberg Designs 3-Piece Portfolio

Like the name suggests the 3-Piece Portfolio is built in three separate pieces. The front cover, back cover and the spine. This style works great if would like to add different color spine to your portfolio design. You can also order multiple spines and change out to the spine color for a quick portfolio update! This is also a nice option if you plan on updating your logo in the near future, as you can opt to just build out a new cover.
