Itoya Art Portfolio
on October 27, 2013
I purchased these portfolios in different sizes, from 8.5 by 11 (for 8 x 10s) to 18 by 24. They are very sleek and very professional looking. The insertion of photos or poster was very smooth. The binding feels strong as they seem to be ready to hold on even the largest (18 by 24 in my case) securely for long. Opening and flipping through the pages is as expected and the plastic sleeves inside do not feel cheap or brittle. The 18 by 24s are big and become heavy fast. They need to be 100% flat. I placed one of mine on 2 bar stools and the slight bend in the middle made a sleeve or two separate at the outside edge. Smaller ones do not have this consideration. The outside covers are luster finish and sleek enough that some of my acrylic paint splatter on them and I was able to remove with my fingernails. I recommend this product and the price is attractive and fair. Lastly, some of the smaller sized ones have a plastic sleeve (thicker plastic than the regular pages) in the inside of the front cover. I use these to slip in one metal (not metallic, but aluminum) print per book. This would puncture the regular sleeve if I had placed it inside like any other picture.
