  1. Custom made Impact Stamped portfolio book.

    After being unhappy with the print portfolio options I was finding in stores I decided it may be best to be resourceful and make my own, this way I could really customize how I wanted my recent work to be viewed in person.

    Using some materials I had lying around (500+ sheets of high quality white pre-cut cardstock, antique impact letter stamps, and a decent printer) I was able to construct a beautiful, simple custom portfolio in a couple of days (including layout time) with my initials added subtly on the cover.
