Mullenberg Designs

Project Build Process

Every Project starts with an idea.

At Mullenberg Designs we build homes for ideas.

 

There are 4 basic steps to the build-out process: selecting a structure, prepping your contents, selecting cover materials and customizing your presentation structure.

 
 

STEP 1

Structure

We offer a variety of presentation structures to professionally present your project. Selecting the right structure for your project is the first step in the build out process.

Contents

What is going into your presentation structure? The answer to this question can go along way to helping decide what structure is best for you. Here are some helpful links and tips to help you.

Determining size: All of our presentation structures are built out from the size of your print. There are industry standard sizes and we can work with most custom sizes. Click here for paper sources and helpful tips on prepping your prints.

Printing:  We don’t offer Printing services at Mullenberg Designs. Contact these recommended Printers.

Your Portfolio housing should reflect and complement your work, not distract from it. It should be seen as an introduction to your work, easy to access and easy to read. There is a hierarchy here and your work stands at the top. The structural part of the portfolio, or the house, should never rival the content, only accent it.

STEP 3

Surface

 Choose cover materials for the portfolio. In addition you will need to choose the lining fabric for inside front / back cover. Order swatches to minimize any surprises over color and texture.

At Mullenberg Designs we use a hot stamping press to create a deboss that sinks your logo below the surface of your presentation structure cover. This creates a clean and customizable way to brand your presentation. Personalizes your project and expresses your brand identity. Get details

double matte endsheets

We recommend the double matte end sheets as a professional finishing touch to your presentation. These custom made sheets are hand cut from drafting film. They work to protect your front and back images from wear and tear, while lending a elegant touch to your presentation.

2 fabric cover

All of our Presentation Structures can be customized with a 2-Fabric Cover. This can be a dynamic way to set your presentation apart. As always this is a completely customizable add-on. We’ll work with you to determine what fabrics work together and design the layout.

Scored pages work beautifully for trucking images across the gutter as there’s no break in the image.
