How large are your posters? If they aren't too big, I put mine into art portfolio books

Kinda like that one, but a lot sturdyer. Keep in mind portfolios are flat usually. Don't store too much or it might burst.

u/FromUnderTheWineCork · 3 pointsr/scrapbooking

Look for art portfolios! You should be able to find one large enough for relatively cheaper. Here's a 17x22 with 24 pockets for example. The cover is plain, but you can decorate it

Consider something like this

u/TrptJim · 3 pointsr/Firearms

I use a portfolio like this one. Holds the largest targets I have and keeps the reactive targets from getting scratched up.

A flat file cabinet is your best bet for long term storage. Check your local craigslist listings or Amazon.

On the cheap end of the spectrum, I think it's worth checking out an art portfolio bag. The size options of these bags are limited, which is really the only caveat I can think of.

Huge backpack and Itoya art portfolios if you get a lot of prints. Holds them flat. Don't have to worry about straightening them back out.

u/TheNetisUnbreakable · 3 pointsr/phish

These profolios hold 48 posters! They fluctuate in price ($35-$52) on Amazon. $35 right now! Grab one! Get those things out of those tubes! Store under bed.

Itoya Profolio

I mainly use the 11 x 17 Itoya Art Portfolio as a huge part of my portfolio is 11 x 17 posters and I can mock up other projects like beer packaging onto 11 x 17 sizes easily and with enough room for extra details or actual product shots. I feel like that size is a good presentation size since it is big enough to grab attention and fit in project details but is small enough to be passed around a table of interviewers or potential clients. I also have a small business card holder full of my logo work. Each logo is individually printed on a business card sized piece of card stock. I like doing this because a freelance client can spread them out in front of them or pass them around their team like baseball cards and make little groups of likes and dislikes etc.

It seems the vast majority of job interviews don't require or even want hard copy portfolios these days but I usually have my hard copy portfolio in the trunk of my car because you never know when someone might want to see it. There have been several times I've met a friend of a friend or a friend's coworker or something at a party or social gathering who then expresses interest in hiring me for a freelance project. Being able to quickly grab my real portfolio to show them instead of having them flip through my website on their phone is nice. I've also personally found that a lot of small freelance clients REALLY enjoy seeing actual printed work in front of them instead of trying to zoom in and out of tiny image on their phone.

I like the Itoya portfolios because they're cheap, durable, plain enough to be professional looking, and easy to find if you need a new one.

I made my own Bastard box that works for 4x5 and 5x7. Here's a list of materials:

  • 32-gallon fold-a-tote: The actual box part

  • Sacrificial film changing bag: For the armholes

  • Rosco #19 Fire gel: For darkbox window(s)* Light safe indoors but outside you'll need to cover your head and box with a shroud of some sort to be safe. For the side windows I cut I used Rubylith sheets. You can't see through them so they only work on the sides but they are completely daylight safe.

  • Tray stand: For setting the box on to work

  • LED Headlamp: Has a darkroom safe red LED to illuminate inside

  • Kitchen timer: for timing plate sensitivity. Fits handily into the transparent side pocket on the box.

  • Portfolio: For toting the flattened darkbox around in.

    The box is made of thick cardboard so it's easy to cut through with a knife or razorblade. After cutting I taped the edges with black gaffer's tape to make it look cleaner and to prevent any particles from falling into the working area. I cut one big window in the top (for the Rosco gel) and one on each panel in the back (for the Rubylith).

    For the armholes I left the cuts rough so I could use a high strength glue to adhere the arms I cut off of the film changing bag. I glued them to the cardboard under the nylon fabric of the box. After that had dried I taped around the edges so it looked cleaner and provided a little better seal.

    For the illumination inside, I took the strap off the LED headlamp and stuck some velcro squares to the back of it and to the inside of the box. This holds the light perfectly and still allows the headlamp to tilt up and down for the perfect angle.

    The only other thing I do is tear up thick magazine pages and lay them down on the inside along with something like a puppy pad or some paper towels to catch any drips.

    Here is an imgur album with some sample images.

You are correct. After some digging I think I'm getting close to what I want. In case anyone else is interested these are some options I have discovered:

The thing is I'm really reluctant to drop $150+ on a case, or even $100+ for that matter.

u/JClarenceThornton · 1 pointr/DMB

I only have so much space on my walls, I have about 25 frames posters up at a time and once I have to switch any out they go into this art portfolio I bought on Amazon. I'll have to buy another one after probably one more year of shows.

u/eric1717 · 1 pointr/ween

you need one of these!

u/dubnessofp · 1 pointr/jambands

That and a the big portfolio folder for the overflow is great. This is the one I use. I have ~70 of them framed on the walls and another 30 or so in this.

u/Adlgctomotac · 1 pointr/disney

Something like this might work - it's an art portfolio that has clear sleeves that you can put the lithographs in. Theoretically it should fit in this but there are multiple sizes that you can choose from! Plus you can take off the sticker on the front and customize the front and the binding :)

u/thegreenllama777 · 1 pointr/graphic_design

Haven't set aside many hard copies of my work lately (most of my sketches/drawings are on the iPad Pro these days), but in college when I was using large sketch pads and printing a lot of things, I used a portfolio bag similar to this and separated the pieces with cardboard and paper.

u/DrGraffix · 1 pointr/phish

This is the defacto standard in portfolio:

but make sure you follow /u/metrodrone instructions about flattening.

If you have prints larger than 18x24 let me know and i will link you to a larger portfolio, but they get much more expensive.

What prints do you have?
