The Commencement & Achievement Folios feature the word ‘’SENIOR’’ on the cover in two different font styles. The Graduate folio features a foil embossed graduate certificate & a mortarboard on the inside center section. The ‘’SENIOR’’ style folios feature either a silver, gold or black pinstripe around each mat on the inside that coordinates with the SENIOR printed on the cover.

Does it look like real leather material? 

Each folio features a black leatherette soft padded cover that looks just like real leather. You would not want us to use real leather primarily due to cost.
