A portfolio showcases an individual’s or company’s best or most important work in a printed format. Leaving your mark in whatever you do is of prime importance in today’s competitive world. A professionally printed portfolio can help you to achieve that aim. Ensure that you present your work and talents in the best light. A printed portfolio forms an integral part of every brand, as well as being important for individuals who are starting out in an industry or other sectors. It illustrates an individual’s or company’s area of expertise.
The design of a printed portfolio is crucial. Your work needs to speak for itself. A well designed and printed portfolio will elevate your work, whereas a poorly presented one will be counterproductive.
At QINPrinting we can offer help and advice throughout the whole production process, from initial planning to delivery.
Graphic Design Print Portfolio
The most important aspect of producing your portfolio is to plan it out properly before starting it. Begin by researching your target audience. What are their expectations and what are you trying to achieve? If possible, find some examples of other portfolios that your target audience will have been presented with. For example, if they are used to receiving A3 portfolios with hardcovers featuring embossing and foil stamping, there is no point in submitting an A4 product with a flimsy cover.
Your printed portfolio needs to be better than the rest. Otherwise, you may be wasting your time and money.
The main aspects to look at our size, cover features, paper stock, and finishing. These are crucial elements in the design process. Once you have decided on these features you can look at other aspects such as quantities required and delivery options. If you are not able to produce your own design we can provide a high-quality design and artwork service.
