Thanks Doug and Jim for the photos of the Pre A PORSCHE folder, the die to replicate the logo would be quite tricky to produce as it is a positive image stamped from the back of the card but I will ask my guys if they can make it work.
I have just received the new die for the crest with all the fine details, thanks to Joris for providing the hi-res pictures.
I have had to upgrade the die to Bronze from the cheaper magnesium to hold all the detail and I am now using just over 3 tonnes of pressure to get it to look right.
Also the card stock is now red not Burgundy to closer match the original..

So I'm ready to start producing a small quantity for those of you who have expressed an interest.
I will PM people in the order they have enquired but please be patient as each folder takes a couple of hours to cut, crease, stamp, fold and glue.
One small disclaimer: The card stock is just like the original (cheap pulp board with a leather look grain) BUT just like the original folders if it gets wet the colour can bleed, so your laminated drivers manual will be fine but I would not put your priceless original documents into the folder if your glovebox gets wet inside.
Hope you like them.
