FFFolio Legal Brief


Laser cut from a four square foot piece of thick 5-6oz Horween leather, hand beveled, stitched, and burnished. Sized to hold a 12″ iPad Pro (with attached keyboard)/13″ MacBook Pro/Microsoft Surface behind divider on front/left side. Interior dividers/notebook holder/pen slot/bookmark tab are black chromexcel HF leather. Includes one standard pen slot and two business card slots (on the left side/behind the legal pad), document divider to hold paperwork separate from laptop/ipad. Space behind notebook for papers. Pen slot above legal pad; sized to fit pens up to 12.5mm in diameter, we can customize to fit specific pens if they are larger. Ships with one legal pad installed in slot. Rivet reinforced spine (and optional front flap).

Add the optional front flap with a strong magnetic closure and you’ve got something between a folio and a small briefcase.

Fits standard size 8.5×11″ legal pads and A4 size notebooks. Pocket fits iPad Pro 12″ with keyboard, MacBook Pro 13″, or similarly sized Microsoft Surface.

Please Note: Due to the extremely large, almost entirely single-piece of full grain leather, there are almost guaranteed minor imperfections in the leather–it is almost impossible to have a ‘perfect’ piece of full grain leather. Small marks and color variations should be expected, and looked at as part of the individual beauty of real leather; if you prefer a folio case that will look exactly the same, we suggest you look into a material other than full grain leather.

Dimensions: 330mm x 255mm (about 13″ x 10″)

“How do I know which color is which??” Select a leather color from the drop down menus below, and the photos will update to reflect your choice.

Engraving/Monogramming options

See our Engraving/Monogramming page for information.

(standard location-front cover, bottom right when no flap is present, centered above flap when flap is present) “First Middle Last” style:

(input full name, NOT initials; we will style your engraving per your selection above)

(standard location-inside front cover, lower left. For more ‘personal’ messages, we suggest behind legal pad so it isn’t visible in a meeting.)

Upload an image/logo for engraving: (+$14.00)

Black & white or (limited) greyscale image, tiff/jpeg/png or vector file. Very limited greyscale (black, medium grey, light grey, white) is possible. Actual engraving dimensions are preferred @ 300dpi for best results-contact us with questions and we can help you know if your image will engrave well. We will review file and contact you with questions and pricing prior to beginning work. Include approximate image location you prefer in ‘special instructions’ box below. Please do not request engraving of images/logos that you do not have rights to for copyright/trademark purposes.

(max file size 2 GB)

Using a clean piece of unlined white paper (computer paper), hand write your message with a black pen–preferably even a sharpie so it will engrave nice and thick, then take a well lit photo of it with your phone and upload it here. Don’t worry if it’s crooked or you need to cross out a word and re-write it, we can adjust it all in photoshop. We’ll tweak as needed to make it engrave well and contact you prior to making to finalize location.

Gift Message OR Special Instructions

If you’d prefer a (Twitter-sized) gift message to the recipient, instead of our typical thank-you note to the purchaser, let us know what you’d like on the card. You can also include any special instructions we may have asked you for if you chatted with us via email/messenger so we can make sure your order is perfect. Or, tell us what bourbon we really need to check out, or your favorite meme format…you’ve got 420 characters, go wild.
