Cant see how these close up apart from the two straps, have they got a zip(the whole way around) like most other portfolios of this size?

Compared to the Baroque Portfolios, for $40 less, you get non-refillable pages (although 40 prints in one of these will be heavy enough), no carrying strap, and no ability to zip your prints up completely. If someone is interested in just storing their 24x36's flat and not transporting them anywhere, then this is a great option...although, you can add way more prints in the Baroque Portfolios for flat storage too (but this means buying more sleeves which is more $$$$).

Think I'm good with my Baroque portfolios. The price on the surface looks good but if you collect more than 20 sleeves of prints, Baroque ends of being cheaper and they also give discount codes to print buyers. I can just add sleeves when needed instead of buying another portfolio and it takes up way less space. It's nice being able to use the 18x24 inch sleeves in the larger portfolio too, which I can put more than 1 print per sleeve in.

Anyone have a good source for 24 x 36” acid free backing supports to slip into the sleeves? Having trouble finding them for a reasonable cost.

i've never have had one of these but am considering getting one. would be a cool way to let my boys see prints. educate a rookie. how do they go in the sleeve? you just slide them in through 1 opening at the top and the other 3 sides are sealed? is it easy to bend a corner or damage the print when inserting it?

That’s kind of why I’m looking for backing boards for these portfolios. It’s pretty easy for prints to slide around or slip out if the folio isn’t full, or for the empty sleeves to roll against a print in a sleeve when opening or moving the portfolio. Especially if you have different sized prints in it. Just my experience anyway

Usually with these types of sleeved portfolios I like to have backing boards and then use Mylar corners or strips to hold the print onto the board and slip the board into the sleeve. However, the only place I can find 24 x 36” backing boards have them priced 3-4x what I’m used to paying for my 18x24” portfolio

I could be wrong but the $150 ones from Jerry's had a few more features and could store up to 100 prints if you bought more sleeves! It's tough to compare the two unless there is another product you're talking about.

Also, I feel like most people buy these portfolios for storage purposes. Transporting a filled portfolio of 40 prints with that handle seems like it would be tough. So if you do collect a lot, like all of us hoarders :), you would probably need quite a few portfolios.

Do 24x36 prints actually fit all the way in?

top edge is open for print insertion. Sleeves are a bit snug but this is only (and hardly) an issue when loading in prints. I own a Baroque and it was the wisest art care decision i have ever made. It is particularly great for the purposes you cited as well.

yes. it does not stick out and has about 1/4 extra width space.

as spac said, only possible issue is when you insert it, at first you need to be slow and gentle (that's what she said), but once you get used to it then its easier (that's what, nm), but yes be warned that you have to be careful when it's a tight fit to avoid those soft corners
