Good for carrying and for storing
from Front Royal, VA
Comments about Alvin Student Series Soft-Sided Portfolios:
I had a storage problem - full sheets of paper and no storage drawers for them. Until it occurred to me I could store paper and finished watercolors under the bed or by a wall in one of these. Works fine. And I have several, so that I can use them for transporting finished paintings.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I love this portfolio. The nylon is really sturdy and water resistant. The only thing I'd change is adding a cross-body strap. When I carry it by the two little handles, it tends to drag on the ground. Great deal for the quality, especially up against the expensive portfolios out there.

The best art portfolio
from Boston, MA
Paper wallet portfolios with plastic handles always tear and break. I was looking for a durable portfolio that is slim and effective. LOVE This product. It can be folder up if you want to pack it in a back pack, it's durable and attractive. Great product. Shipped quickly. I'm 100% satisfied.
Just what I needed
from New York, NY
This product was simple and just what I needed, however nothing more. There are no extra pockets or bells and whistles, but it's solid quality and keeps my trend boards clean and safe from damage on my train commutes to and from work. Would definitely recommend.
I didn't know it was flimsy
By The Amazing Noel
from El Paso, TX
Now this product is of great quality but I didn't now that it was a foldable, flimsy portfolio. I can still carry my pieces inside, they just aren't getting the support I think they need. I like the product but the lack of support was the only downside.

Alvin Student Series Portfolios good product
My use of the product is to carry "framed" artwork back and forth from exhibitions. I have several sizes and can put 4, and sometimes more, framed (with glass) paintings separated with cardboard sheets in each. When you have to transport up to 40 paintings, these are strong enough to handle the job. And they are perfect even when it's just one painting, too.
Perfect for my sophmore

great product at a great price
By Library Girl
from Alexandria, VA
I purchased this for my son who is a 3rd year college art major. It is the perfect size and is very sturdy but lightweight. He has gone through 2 other portfolios of a different brand that were not only more expensive but not even close in quality. He likes this one so well he wants another one just to store artwork at home.
Very nice product
from Arlington, Texas
This a sturdy, economical portfolio for student use.
from Rochester, NY
I use the portfolio for transporting work from school to home. It's dropped in snow slash and none of my work was wet, also spilled paint on it :/ work inside, not ruined! Holds up well, the only thing I don't like is the zipper top doesn't go over the corners so it takes a little finagaling to get the large pad in. Other than that, it's grand!
