anyone know a source for paper folios like brooks jensen uses? in LVJ-16, he mentions getting them in portland ore. best...skip
I ordered some Carnival Hopsack (Mohawk Paper) Persian Blue 90 # Cover 26 x 40 from www.glodan.com
. Great experience. I ordered 20 sheets at a good price to start my own folio stuff based on Brooks' instructional DVD. The paper is not quite 100-120# but heavy enough for a 13 page folio of Exhibition Fiber prints.
I made a design for a folio cover and went to a local sign shop. I used some of their scrap 1/4" acrylic and they made the folio forms for me in portrait and landscape models for about $130.
I also found a creasing/folding machine like Brooks shows at the end of the DVD on eBay for $180 and not $600 as he mentions.
I just finished my first test run and am really excited about the prospect of adding folios as part of my fine art print products. A number of people I show it to loved the small size and "cluster" of themed prints. They really like the tactile nature of the project.
I hope that helps.
