folders exists in many different forms and must be carefully selected to give off the correct impression about the company, must be practical as well as useful and long lasting for the user. Traditionally, the choice of material finishes for folders and binders would have been limited to genuine leather, making this a prestige item and a fairly high budget was required to kit out a sales team, or to giveaway to top clients as executive gifts.  This has not been the case however for some time now, with Far East sourcing along with new material availability – this is now no longer a high spend area to achieve some really great results. Looking into the styles available, designs are reasonably varied now. In the traditional folders, there is the conference style that has no closure, but retains a good selection of internal pockets to take business cards, pens and literature as well as a note pad. Ziparound folder portfolios protect the information within the folder during transit and often offer more internal features such as calculators and removable ring mechansisms. There are also ringbinder portfolios, which again help prevent information from falling out when on the move. Some now offer a removable ring mechanism, which is fantastic in allowing the user to decide how to use the folder. Material finishes have certainly moved forward in terms of choice on offer. The range now starts at the low budget polyprop, mostly used for low value giveaways, or minimal protection to documents. The conference folders take on their traditional appearance with leather look PU – with as close to leather appearance, they are both durable without the smell of the real deal! Bonded leather and recycled leather uses offcuts which when processed offer a cheaper real leather solution. Finally there still remains the high end options such as the Ascot Hide Leather Conference Folder – one of the range of Rolls Royce folders that will certainly stand out from the crowd! There is now plenty of choice of promotional folders, and there is usually an option to fit whatever quantity and budget you are looking at.  A member of the Steel City Marketing sales team would be happy to talk through your requirements and provides options and prices that we are sure you will not regret.
