greasy wrote:$37 for a 5 pack at asw......ordered 2 and only $6.99 shipping!

I hope they have this sale going on for one more week, funds are tight and I need some refill's...

crazy that it say's retail price is 80 some bucks, has anyone ever seen them this expensive. I don't remember what I paid for the refill's when I bought my portfolio, but I also don't remember having to purchase two refill package's.


Maybe I did and just don't remember

I am picking up the Picturesque Portfolio 24x36. Is there a need to add backing boards for stability? Where would one pick these up and in what size(I can't seem tofind 24/36)? thanks.

That thing will be heavy enough once you get 20 or so prints in it, I can't imagine lifting it if you add backing boards. Not sure they'd fit anyway. Each sleeve has a paper insert. You can use mylar corners to keep your prints from slipping around and just turn the HUGE pages carefully.

i find that does the trick. the only time i use mylar corners in mine is if i have multiple small prints in one sleeve. otherwise be careful and youll be good

Agree. The black inserts look pretty good as a backing too. They are not rigid at all so definitely be careful turning pages.

I picked one of these up and waiting on shipment. Too bad I didn't wait a few extra days.

Anyone know where you can find larger portfolios in Canada?

I got my Itoya from Wallack's, but I may need a larger one (like 24x36) soon.

I'm trying to avoid the shipping hassle.

Maybe I'll go for the foam boards since I already have my prints in mylar sleeves.
