12.5x10 Hardcover Portfolio Book

A gorgeous imagewrap hardcover and smooth wire-o spine give these books the ultimate in presentation and quality.


It's a Flat, Flat World

Product PhotoProduct Photo


There's no way around it: graphic artists, architects, and other professionals need top-quality presentation books that will lie flat for their clients. And when you want to make an impact, nothing beats a hardcover book. Our 12.5" x 10" Hardcover Portfolio Books make a strong impression at an affordable price.

High-Style, Flattened


Our gorgeous imagewrap hardcover allows you to create stunning full-wrap covers, while our smooth wire-o spine ensures your books will open flat for viewing. With our industrial-class digital presses, the quality of the printing is as stunning as the photos you take.

Rest assured that there's nothing wimpy about these books. Our hefty covers and durable wire-o binding can withstand a trip in an overstocked messenger bag (or even a journey through the postal service).

The wire-o binding is a white strong square wire spine that does not spiral out of the pages with use. This durable binding option allows your book to lay flat on a table to display your work. The imagewrap cover is able to hold between 1-200 pages.

I was hoping for the largest size possible, but wanted a dust jacket hard cover. If I go with the 12.5x10 wire bound, what happens to the inside flaps of my dust jacket design? Do they get printed as the inside of the wire-bound cover, or do they just disappear?

Perfect binding

Is there any way to print this size with perfect binding instead of the spiral? This is a photo book of my wedding, and when our designer started the project (over a year ago), she swore that there was a perfect bound option. So she designed the photo book in 12.5x10 format. But we don't want spiral binding. Anything you can do to help us out?

Greetings from PrestoPhoto!

Our 12.5x10 trim size can only be printed with the Wire-O binding. However, if the project was created within the Designer this ratio size can also print the 11x8.5 and 9x7 trim sizes as well. You can read more about what the 8.5x11 trim size offeres here: http://www.prestophoto.com/wiki/11x8.5+Photo+Books

If you have any further questions please let us know!

Is Premium printing available?

Dear PrestoPhoto,

I'm so glad I found a place to get photobooks at such an affordable price! I'm particularly interested in the hardcover portfolio because it's lay-flat. However, I don't see Premium printing listed as an option. Is it available? Thanks!

FHL,

greetings from PrestoPhoto and thanks for your interest.

We don't have this as an option for Premium printing. You will still be happy with it :)

The paper that comes with this product is photo silk - this paper has a little bit of a shine. It is not the slick gloss of magazines or prints, and you have to turn the paper in the light to see the shine. The real benefit of this paper is that it has a protective coating so if you spill something on the book you have a second or two to get a towel to wipe the paper before the liquid sinks into the paper.

Hope this helps :)

The 12.5 x 10 Hardcover Portfolio book comes with Photo Silk paper which is produced using 80# text coated Xerox Digital Silk paper (like a gloss but not glossy) and are produced with a Xerox iGen, a toner based device. The digital silk paper is not the slick shiny gloss like you see in magazines. It provides a protective coating on the paper. The blacks stand out and the images crisp, but it won't be slick. Technical specs of the paper are Digital Color Silk - C2S, 90 bright.

shipping

how much do you charge for shipping in Ireland?

Marah,

Greetings from PrestoPhoto and thanks for your interest.

I'm afraid I can't give you an exact estimate for shipping. Ship time and cost depend on the ship to address, weight of package, and most importantly ship method selected. Thus, it is not possible to provide an accurate ship cost. Typically, you could expect to pay approximately $6 - $10 for shipping for one book within the US. However, that is a rough estimate.

We do offer a ship cost estimator on this page: http://www.prestophoto.com/wiki/Ship+Options+and+Delivery+Times
You would need to select the "Get a shipping quote right now" link. This quote is based on 1 40-page book so it is not accurate for, say, 500 books but it will give you a sense of the cost.

If your order total is over $30.00, we offer a flat rate ship cost of $7.99 for international shipping and $1.99 for domestic. This is a very slow ship method so don't use it if you are on a deadline. If time is not an issue then you may consider that option.

If you have the product in your account you can add it to your cart and view all our ship method options without having to complete the checkout process or give us credit card information.

Thanks!

Book Question

by Rosemary, Tue 13 of Jul, 2010 (21:59 UTC)
I am about to order this book and I am designing it in Adobe Indesign. I was wondering if you could help me with a question I have regarding the spiral binding. I don't want the pictures or text in my book to be in the area where the binding will be- what dimensions would be considered in the safe zone so I can avoid this?
