The crew over at Five O’Clock Somewhere wanted a cool unique folder for their extensive wine list. They say; “Our aim is to create a collection of wines that are interesting, purposeful and honest in a dare to be great environment.” So they needed something cool to match the wines.
So we created these custom hand bound folders, which were laser cut and etched out of Tasmanian Oak. UV printed with the their colourful logo which really pops on the Tassie oak; then they were hand bound with black leather to give it a really classy finish.
Overall we’re happy with the outcome and think they’ll look great in their surroundings down in South Australia.
Our on site book-binder created these hand bound custom folders for the guys at Metropolis for a project for Flour Mill in Sydney. The Flour Mill is going to be a real estate development “…where parkland, pedestrian areas and new internal streets seamlessly connect the apartments and terrace homes with their wider environment. The past becomes the foundation for a new, dynamic and contemporary neighbourhood.”
The Folder had to be made to suit the overall branding. So we created these hessian wrapped custom hand-bound folders with a black leather interior. We added a clip lock system to make it easier to update or change the inside content and with the incorporation of a UV print onto the front with the fantastic colour that the Flour Mill are using in their logo have tied it all together nicely and created a modern but also nostalgic look.
These custom made sample boards for Robina Group Riverlily came up a treat. With our joinery incorporated with laser cut and etched timber face, the outcome is a very stylish and functional piece.
When Riviera approached us for some sample books to be made and sent in time for the Florida boat show, we jumped at the opportunity. So we created these custom-made timber laser etched/leather bound books that turned out great!
We recently teamed up with the guys at Mighty Mighty Cue & Brew to do some menus and wall art pieces for the brand new American BBQ and Smokehouse Restaurant that is opening in Fortitude Valley, Brisbane. The menus are made out of American Walnut with 3 different colour edging to represent the Drinks, Food and Desert menus. The large playing card wall hangings are also made from Walnut and feature laser etched characters over the top of painted graphics. The whole project was great fun to put together. If you are in Brisbane, make sure you swing by Mighty Mighty to check it all out and hook in to some ribs and beer while you are there!
These are some menu covers we did for Ryans Bar at the Treasury Casino, Brisbane. All handmade with a leather back and spine, veneered timber front cover and a laser etched logo.
This is a presentation folder we did for Smart Abode. It was made from a white washed ply with a white leather spine. The front had a Laser Etch into the wooden cover and the back page had a paper laser etch. Nice little job that turned out great.
Here is a recent project for Billabong. The brief was to produce a Hand Bound Presentation Book as a departing gift for one of their long standing employees. So what we ended up with was a Laser Cut and Etched A3 Landscape book in a Wooden Beech Finish with a Leather Bound Spine. We also did a Laser Etched Leather bound Slip Case to slide around the Book.
The finished product looked amazing and I know that the recipient is extremely happy to have it sitting on his coffee table.
We recently printed the Sassy Survivors 2012 Calendar.

The Calendar itself is Great. Beautiful pics by Gold Coast Pinup Photography.

Here are a couple of shots of the catalogue…
Here are some Denim Wrapped Folders we made for a client of ours. Our professional binder made these all by hand. After carefully planning where all the pockets were going to sit, we cut up the jeans and wrapped the folders. After that we Laser-etched the clients logo onto the back pocket and finished it off with a clasp to fold the folder together. The final result looked amazing!
Here are some Hand Bound Hard Case Folders we did for Lifetime Developments recently. Each hard case box is hand bound and foiled. Each folder is hand wrapped with a printed cover and bound with inner screws. We did 50 individual boxes which took our professional binder a couple of days to finish. Well worth all the effort for the finished product.
