Photograph portfolio, display sleeve ideas Please!

Hi Guys,

I have been having some of my better images printed over the last two years and was wondering what would be best to display/carry around with me to show friends etc.

The prints have mainly been A4 and 10x8s though I have had some done in 12x12 and 18x9 I would like to have some printed larger still A3 A2.

At the moment they are in cheap plastic file sleeves, though they have an opace look to them which is not brilliant when showing them off.

Any cost effective ideas, manufacturers names, stockists would be great especially if they show nice while in there respective sleeves.

As always thanks to all for this great helpful forum

I always print my work on a variety of Hahnemuhle Papers the quality is stunning and the paper is expensive but if you want the best then be prepared to pay the price. They produce A3. A4 and 12x12 leather portfolio albums which are superb.



Permajet also produce excellent paper and Portfolio albums too as an alternative.

Hi Tom,

Many thanks for the reply, those albums look stunning though I don't think my images would be worth that kind of cost expenditure I don't really do fine art my prints are regular lab prints, on Fuji archive paper.

If were to create images worthy of such a display format I would use these products.

Though I do appreciate the input and hopefully someone will also find this useful
