Welcome to dickblick
Prat's Start 1 Portfolios are attractive enough for professionals, and attractively priced for students. They have a black archival/acid-free embossed polypropylene cover, with a smooth black inside.
They also feature two full inner pockets, elastic holding straps with plastic buckle, solid molded plastic drop handles, and a smooth running double-action nylon zipper.
Portfolio Dimensions — The sizes given for presentation cases, portfolios, binders, and refill pages are the sizes of the artwork they are intended for, not the actual dimensions of the product.

Big but functional
By SF artist in NY
from Nanuet NY
Comments about Prat Start 1 Portfolio:
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
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

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
I love the quality of this product. Nice thick outer shell and I love the elactic straps that will hold my art work in place as I travel with it!

Prat Start 1 Portfolio
from Flagstaff, AZ
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.
Not outstanding, not disappointing.
By Tony the designer
from Milwaukee, WI
I purchased this carrier for one reason - to transport my very expensive metal portfolio. It was cheap and I'm fine with that as it won't be a part of the presentation. Nice manufacturing, okay material, and utilitarian.In this case, a good rule of thumb can be applied: You get what you pay for.
Not a great product
The inside pouch ripped and the zipper broke in less than 3 months of use.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

3inch gullet portfolio by Start
By carol ann the artist
from loves park, IL
Loved everthing about this portfolio, the price, material, 3 inch gullet and availability of sizes. HOWEVER it really disappointed on the extra small handle which also is razor sharp to the touch on the edges. Hard to carry a load with the handle digging into my skin. Otherwise great. Terrible handle would prevent a future sale by me.

Just what I needed, except...
I needed a portfolio this large that also contained individual pages to slide the art into. I noticed that smaller portfolios offered this feature, but not the larger ones.
