Promotional Custom Padfolios with Printed Logo Ideas

Custom Padfolio

What is a promotional custom padfolio? Promotional custom padfolios are pads of lined paper that are secured inside a folder. They often come with zippers or a closure to keep the paper, pockets, and contents safely enclosed within the padfolio.

A padfolio can contain the following:

  • 3-ring binders
  • Organizer pockets for papers and documents
  • Pen loops
  • Holders for business cards
  • and more.

What is the Difference Between Padfolios, Portfolios, & Notebooks?

Padfolios vs Portfolios

Padfolios and portfolios share several similarities. For example, both are utilized to safely carry papers and other office supplies. However, they have their differences also.

For example, a padfolio differs in that it is a pad of paper secured inside a sturdy folder. This folder comes with additional places to store pens, business cards, and papers. Also, a padfolio is opened like a book, and opening it reveals a notepad inside.

By contrast, a portfolio is usually larger. Portfolios usually have a handle and look like a small briefcase, making transportation easy when on-the-go.

Padfolios vs Notebooks

What makes a padfolio different than a notebook?

A notebook has a spiralbound cover with line paper that’s easy to remove if needed. Notebooks are usually for just jotting down notes and don’t usually provide options to easily store business cards, pens, etc. Overall, notebooks are cheaper and more budget-friendly. If you’re on a tighter budget, a customized notebook will do nicely as a corporate gift or event promotional item.

Meanwhile, a padfolio typically has a much thicker cover and a closure to protect the contents. Usually, a notebook doesn’t have a way to close up and protect the notes and documents. If you’re willing to spend a bit more and are looking to provide your recipients with more ways to store their items, then a padfolio is your best bet.
