Hand-made Custom Padfolios

A padfolio makes a very up-scale way of presenting documents as well as taking notes at meetings. One of my clients is a seminar coordinator and uses her leather padfolio to store the announcements. A participant remarked that they were always eager to see what came out of “that folder” because whatever it was, it must be important. As a result, participation in her seminars had increased.
Gifting someone with a custom leather padfolio, perhaps with a gold stamped monogramm or inscription, reflects well on the giver as well as delight the recipient.

For a very elegant combination, I can make you a matching set with padfolio and a Planner. Personalize any of these with a logo or inscription.

Here are a few examples:

textured leather padfolio The basic black leather padfolio. Turned edges give this padfolio a sleek and serious look that shows off the texture of the skin. Check the Price sheet for costs.
gold stamped custom leather padfolio A custom, one-of-a-kind padfolio made for an astrologer. It is hand dyed calfskin both inside and out. The logo is a combination of gold stamping, hand carving and hand stamping. I made a special tool to create the stars in this logo.
two tone custom Ppdfolio

This padfolio combines pebble grain cow skin with tan lambskin. The elegant design and color attract attention, while the different textures of the two leathers provide an added tactile enjoyment. Bound edges unify and frame the design.

This is the standard interior of all the padfolios. It includes a pen loop, a brochure holder and pockets for business cards and calculator.
As with all my work, it can be customized to suit your needs with different pocket designs, a different pad or 2 pockets instead of a pad.
The padfolio can be adapted into a very elegant menu cover or wine list as well.
