Portfolio Binder Choices: Options needed
« on: January 19, 2017, 10:20:23 PM »

I am in the process of buying a new (used) Epson 13" printer to make my architectural portfolio prints (13" x 19") to show to marketing directors. The only one that I really like is the Advantage ringed binder made by Itoya. The only issue I have with their binders is that they do not make HORIZONTAL/LANDSCAPE  version for 13" x 19" prints. I would like to know if members know of any other companies that make high quality portfolio binders and folios.

I did my portfolio on 11x17 paper, horizontally, and got a nice portfolio book from Lost Luggage. I just checked, and 11x17 landscape is the largest they have. It does look rather nice when opened up. I mixed up the sizes and shapes on each page -- some are full bleed, a few panos that run over both pages, some that have two or more vertical photos, and a couple of spreads with 8 or 10 images.

Now that I think about it, that portfolio is rather old and I need to redo it. (I'm on staff, so I'm not showing it all the time.)

Sorry I can't help with a landscape 13x19 book.

Based in the UK Cathy Robert  http://cathyrobert.com/ makes beautiful portfolios. Custom sizes & materials or off the shelf.

If first impressions count putting one of these books on the table is just the best way to start a meeting. Of course once you open it it's all about the contents!

(I am impressed that you can actually get to see any marketing people these days)
