I like the handle for easy carrying, the zipper to keep it contained andclean, the extra pockets for your resume, artist statement and business cards.
When buying the sheet protectors, consider using the heavy weightand non-glare.
Most any heavy weight photo paper will work, but I suggest theSoft Gloss or Matte finish. This gives a clean look without the glare.You will obviously need a good photo printer or you can send yourfiles to a company like OfficeMax or Staples, or most office supplystores and have them do the printing (make sure to ask for the softgloss or matte finish, or they may let you provide your own paper).
This is a good size for adding your information to the outside of eachimage (on the page protector).Avery has a template that can be downloaded to create your labels.
There are many, many different business card printing companies. I have been usingVistaprint for over ten years and have always been satisfied with their products.
6. Don’t forget to include your Resume, Artist Statement, and List of Images!
I hope this helps you get started with producing a professional portfolio thatyou will be proud to present to a sales gallery!
