Comments about Prat Start 1 Portfolio:
I've used these portfolios for the past 25 years. When my originals got destroyed in an accident, I replaced them with new ones. The new ones have the same basic design as the originals. They are offered in a wide array of sizes that works well with standard paper sizes. The exterior of the portfolio is made of a material that seems like it will be even more durable than the originals. However, some of the hardware seems a little more cheap--namely the zipper, handles, and the way they are attached to the portfolio. Still, these are a great value and very useful item for artists who must transport works on paper. I cover the interior fasteners with tape or line it with black foam core so that they do not rub against the paper and cause damage.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Big but functional
By SF artist in NY
from Nanuet NY
I use this case as storage only. It is quite large so carrying it could be difficult if paper were stored inside. I especially like the pocket on one side and the cross straps to hold paper in place
Just what I needed
from Rochester Hills, MI
I use this for transporting mounted photographs to meetings. It does its job very well.
What I love most about the portfolio is that is EXACTLY what was portrayed and came very quickly. It's one I use specifically to transport and store sketches. Light weight, well constructed. I am extremely pleased. And that can de difficult to do
from Myrtle Creek, Oregon

This is a product for artists on a budget who want durability and protection for their art work. I purchased one for myself and one for a friend. We use them for transporting our art work to and from lessons.
