First Folio Poem
Oh, show me those neat folios
With pockets for utensils,
Slick secret folds of leather holds
And loops for pens and pencils!
The graceful note o' the Lakota
We need no advice on;
The bison's pelt, its pleasure's felt
By all, if not the bison!
Now ain't it a rule of thumb you're blue
If you don't have notes for thumbing through
And tedium strikes with no reprieve
Till Levenger fuels that joie de vivre?

Graduation gift for my daughter.
I did not get to see this as I shipped it to the recipient of my gift. Only two things could have been nicer as I was ordering it. There was no example of how a personalized name would look - position, font, embossed or whatever - so I have no idea how that turned out. And there were not enough letters allowed for me to use my daughter's full first, middle and last names which is how she will be known professionally after graduation (this was a graduation present). I wish there had been a slot for business cards instead of one of the 2 slots for 3x5 cards. (I really wnted the $99 plain folio but it didn't come in red.) She says she loves it though. Also, I thought it would take a long time to arrive, with the time needed to personalize, but it shipped the next day and arrived within 3 days!

Substantial and Durable
To give a little perspective, I've had my Tyler folio about 10 years and I'm still waiting for it to look broken in. It has been used extensively for classes, conferences, and general note taking and continues to look like new. I flip the front half to the back to take less space and reinforce the writing surface. No problem with that.
The only negative aspect of the Tyler is that it is heavy, but maybe that's why it's held up so well. At 10 years, it's just getting started.

I have been looking for a new folio for some time. I had not heard of Levenger but went on the website and found the Tyler folio on sale. It was exactly what I was looking for and the value was good based on $30 off. I ordered black and it has a little more shine than I would like but all in all, it is a very nice and functional folio and I'm really looking forward to carrying it.

Classic & functional work accessory
I purchased & monogramed the Tyler Folio for my sister as a birthday present. It arrived and it is absolutely gorgeous and very well crafted. After showing it to my husband, looks like I will be ordering one for him for Valentine's Day. Well done, Levenger!

I ordered the saddle colored folio, and was shocked when it arrived. The leather actually had a glittery sheen to it, like almost a metallic copper instead the nice, buttery cognac I assumed would arrive. I sent it right back--unfortunately it cost me $14 to return it!! Bad karma all around….grrrrr

Great Note-Taking Folio
This folio has enough heft to be sturdy for writing, but it's not huge and bulky. It fits well in a slim ladies briefcase. The leather is a lovely texture (I got red) and it is matte, not shiny. Be aware that the pockets on the left side of the folio are very tight and it is difficult to slide in any more than 1 sheet of paper. However, these may loosen up with time. I plan to use this as a classy writing surface and carry other files in my briefcase, so it's perfect for that function. This folio is rigid; I also ordered a Softfolio so I can have one of each style (thanks, Levenger!).

Not the Quality I Expected
I just purchased the Tyler Folio and am not happy with the quality. It is very stiff and feels more like plastic than leather. I am replacing another leather folio which I have used for over 10 years. This is not much poorer quality. Unfortunately I had my initials on the folio and cannot return it. While I generally like Levenger products, you can find much better quality elsewhere for this price.
