Best Storage & Presentation Portfolios in 2020



ProFolio by Itoya, Art Profolio Advantage, 24 Sheets Presentation Book - Portrait, 5 x 7 Inches Review:


I purchased several different Itoya Presentation books to compare. This one, The Advantage, is superior to the others. The covers are stiff and durable, and the plastic pages are crystal clear so you can really see the photos perfectly!

As far as the other Itoya books, second choice would be the Evolution line, much more light weight and plastic pages slightly less clear.

The other Itoya book, The Original, it has a very nice cover sturdy but not as thick as the Advantage, and it's smooth and feels nice. The big drawback of "The Original" it doesn't have the crystal clear pages, pages are a little foggy.

ProFolio by Itoya, ProFolio Multi-Ring Refillable Binder - Portrait, 14 x 17 Inches Review:


First, I would like to apologize to the seller for mixing up my seller review with another product that came damaged from another seller. The binder came perfect, and on time. Thank you, and sorry.

As for the binder, I started using them about five years ago, and once I got over the Itoya kinda-weird sizes, I realized that the 11x14 size is perfect for showing my photos. I started out using their ART series, mostly because of the price, but finally moved on to the Multi-Ring Binder because of the organizational easiness (If you need to change a photo position in the ART series, you have to move a whole bunch of photos together, but in the Binder, you just move the whole pages). Yes, it is more expensive, but SO MUCH MORE versatile, and then there are the added benefits: First, you can put double the photos in a single binder, if not more. Second, it has so much sturdier cover, and it is much more professional looking. Third, the backing pages are much thicker and more protective this surprised me, and it makes a big difference when a client turns the pages. And fourth, the sleeves seem to be more transparent, and they seem to last longer (the ART ones seem to get cloudy over time, mostly from overuse, I'm sure, because I keep taking photos out of them).

Like I said, the only downside is the price, especially for the sleeves. I usually get a binder, which comes with 11 sleeves, and then wait for a 60% coupon from Michaels and get the sleeves for $10.00, or so. But even with the added cost, they are so worth it, especially for professionals.



ITOYA OF AMERICA IA-12-8 Profolio 8 12 X 11In. Bk Art Size Review:


I love Itoya Profolio's. This is the most recent size i've purchased, but I have others. I find them to be a great alternative to standard portfolios. They keep everything nice in a compact book like form as opposed to having to lug around a larger zippered case. I've used these for 15 years or so, even my oldest one is still like new. No cracking of the plastic cover or hardening of the interior plastic pages. They have kept my artwork reliably safe. Everything including the black paper inside the plastic sleeves is acid free and does not harm the works you put into it.

Itoya Archival Art Profolio Presentation Book - 60 - 8.5 x 11 Inches Pocket Pages, 120 Views) Review:


I was looking for a portfolio that could house my loose work. I wasn't looking for anything fancy, just an affordable place to put my pictures - and I found the perfect fit.

This is sturdy enough to hold up to light use, though I wouldn't expect it to withstand heavy use or travel. It is not a professional quality portfolio, but it is perfect for the amateur artist.
I got mine with 60 pages (120 pictures front and back), so it will take me quite a while to fill this thing up.

For the price, I am thrilled with this thing. My pictures look so much better in here than in a pile on the shelf.



ProFolio by Itoya, Art ProFolio Evolution Presentation Display Book - Portrait, 18 x 24 Inches Review:


I use this for a few prints that I got at comiccon. It's a little too big for the prints, but still hold them nicely. This is kind of heavy and the outer plastic is strong with a cloth type border for added protection on the sides/corners. The inner paper is supposedly acid free and my prints haven't been sliding around much even though they are much smaller than the book. The only concern I have is with the sleeves(kind of thin) and the binding which seems it can rip, but with my 5-10 prints that is not a problem yet, but could be if I have all 18x24 prints filling up each page of the book. So far though it's been great and much better than the toploader I have been using.



Itoya Art Profolio Portfolio 5 x 7 inches Storage Display Book, 24 Sleeves for 48 Views Review:


I use 4 of these to sort and store the aliens from Cosmic Encounter (FFG reprint) and it's 5 expansions. All 165 aliens fit well: all greens except 1 fit into a book, all reds with room to spare, and the yellows split easily into 2 books. Now I can pass the aliens around the table and everyone can find their own. One thing, to get them to fit into the box in a stack, I had to take all the black paper inserts out of every page. The stack sits about .5-1" above the closed box. This works well for me, because it balances with the Dragon Shield card box on the other side. It's a tight squeeze, but I'm very happy with it.
