It is a reflection of the character of the restorer as much as it is a restored classic car when the dust settles, and the smoke clears. We hand-craft custom leather albums and presentation portfolios in much the same fashion. Each order that leaves our doors is a unique creation. We will discuss with you what it is that you have in mind, and how you intend to use your custom leather portfolio. We craft our products from the finest materials available, and assemble them to provide years of service, beautifully. Whatever art that you provide us may be placed upom the cover leather, and if you're not sure how to begin we'll be pleased to help you design a custom car photo album for your purpose. Many other options are available depending upon the intended use of the book. You mayu want a document flap installed to hand out printed brochures at shows, or a pen loop, but whjatever your need may be, we'll be happy to toss around ideas with you. Please feel free to give us a call anytime to discuss what it is that you have in mind, we'll be happy to hear from you!

When this type of page is used for a guest book it must be removed from the sleeve to be signed when guests arrive aboard, or depart from, your yacht, then replaced within guest book. yacht guest registerThese pages are easily placed in or out from the top of the sleeve. This option helps to protect your guest signatures and remarks from the environment while offering the possibility to include protected photos wherever you like among the signatures.
