Portfolio was founded nearly 40 years ago by Jayne Diggory out of a combined background of fine art, photography, graphic design and printing.
In 1981 Jayne moved the company and her house into an old dairy building in the world famous Portobello Road. Here she created the Portfolio Gallery where a host of photographic exhibitions were staged, thus enabling her to expand the range of postcards, posters and greeting cards.
After more than 4 decades of publishing, bringing on board business partner David Corner as Sales Director, and working closely with artists and suppliers alike, Portfolio is renowned for its eclectic mix of designs.
We currently publish cards by award winning artists including Sara Miller, Christopher Vine and Kirsten Burke, as well as our reliably strong contingent of independent and in-house designers, including Emily Hauck, Bex Parkin (courtesy of Jehane Ltd) and the ever popular Libby Bothway. We also hold the greeting card licenses for both The British Museum and The National Gallery.
All our cards are printed in the United Kingdom on chlorine free, FSC accredited environmentally friendly board.
Where applicable, we use plastic free foil and, from 2021, we will be using biodegardeable glitter.
All our cards can be supplied naked, clasped or, if you really need it, cello wrapped.
We have a wonderful team of agents around the British Isles to be at your service, as well as our friendly staff at the office who are always very happy to help.
