Anyone recently order one from Canada? I see that they no longer seem to have USPS listed as an option and just wondering how bad I should expect the custom fees to be with UPS, thanks in advance

^ if your close to the border setup a free USA shipping address right beside the border and go and pick it up yourself. I think shipping to Canada is like $80-100, then prob $30 fees at the door. Saved around $150 CDN that way.

BTW, I just picked up new inserts for my Portfolio and they are about 1/4 wider and maybe 1/8 of an inch taller then they were previously... I guess they listened to feedback about the inserts being a lil too tight to fit in the 24x36 prints. Prints slide in no prob at all now :)

Not a bad idea and glad to hear they improved the inserts. I know I posted this in another thread but this is probably a more suitable place, has anyone seen or tried this http://www.deserres.ca/en-ca/search/nobel-polypropylene-portfolio/FCPFPOC/ looks like it might be a decent option for anyone in Canada?

i own a picturesque presentation case (24x36) and am in the market for a new one. was wondering if there was anything better to store larger prints. as some have stated, some 24x36 prints don't fit and/or hang out the end. if they fixed the issue with larger sleeves, then maybe that should work?

Super green Noob here. I want to get my stuff out of tubes real bad(I've had some DF Marvel prints sitting in a closet tubed up for like a decade) and I was hoping Jerry's PPP was going to be my solution. Seeing a pic of the new sleeves will help me make a better informed decision. Thanks for all the help.

i can confirm the 24x36 five page refills from jerrys artarama (for picturesque presentation portfolio cases) are now a bit larger than 24x36. i just ordered a refill and the new sleeves can fit a couple of my 24x36 prints that were too big to fit in the original sleeves. they slid right in with no issues. there is now a bit of room at the bottom so your prints don't hang out.

Yeah, I have them myself - you can tell the difference in that it's a more matte finish. But it's DEFINITELY better sized, way easier to slide two prints in (both sides) and leaves you enough wiggle room for 24x36.

Thank you very much gentlemen, looks like I'll be grabbing up a PPP and about 30 sheets.

Just ordered my triple P and and some sheets to get my stuff out of tubes. Wish me luck on the process of flattening and bagging my prints.

More questions regarding the triple P-24x36. I'm looking to bag my prints and slip a backing board into the PPP and the bagged print in front of that. Is that possible with the PPP for 24X36 prints? Are these good backing boards to order?

https://www.bagsunlimited.com/p-5489-ba ... 36-14.aspx

And lastly will I have to trim that back to match the PPP slipcover? Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

No. tho i never had an older version to really know what you all are talking about. But I guess since the prints dont stick out it means its new. *shrug*
