    Does anybody know of a good company in the UK that produces bespoke portfolio boxes? I'm looking for a black clamshell case to house nine prints matted to 16x20". I want the option to be able to emboss something on the front too. Any leads would be much appreciated. Cheers

    hi jarvman

    if you can't find anyone in your neck of the woods
    you might look into contacting http://www.portfoliobox.com here in the states.
    they do amazing work, all custom, boxes books, leather, cloth, dust cases ... you name it!
    i 've had them make 5 custom books for me over the years, never a box though. i DO know people
    they have made boxes for, and nothing but good words ...

    good luck!

    Does Silverprint not stock a suitable box?

    Blimey, I've just looked at the prices for a 50x60cm box! I would ignore the top bit of my last post!

    Thanks Mike! The prices I've seen most places so far seem to be pretty extortionate. I'd love to have a go at making one myself if I can find some good instructions.
