Comments about Prat Start Refillable Presentation Books:
I most likely will order again. I am trying to preserve many large format photos that my dad made throughout his life. He was a photographer with the Navy in WWII, stationed in Attu, Alaska. Some amazing aerial images of the landscape, since we went on several reconnaissance flights. He was a professional photographer his whole life; industrial photog for Glenn L. Martin in the 50s-60s; and a photojournalist for the Baltimore Sun for 20 years thereafter. These pages allow me to preserve and showcase his work beautifully!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Worth it if your budget is limited
I bought this for my senior review in graphic design for college. All my work was to be printed 11x17 landscape. The portfolio itself was size appropriate however the sheets inside were more like 11x16.5. I was able to set my documents to print that size rather than return the product or buy different sheets because I was in a time crunch. However the portfolio is really nice and I enjoy it. For the price compared to others I really can't complain.

Ordered refill Archival pages and received Presentation Books by mistake, my fault miscommunication with the person on the telephone. Returned for replacement via UPS waiting for Pages to arrive.
from New York City
I have used this product several times before when preparing a musician's portfolios and most recently as a photograph album. The quality is outstanding. Most important for me is the ability to add pages since it's refillable. Further, dickblick.com shipped my order in a timely fashion and it arrived perfectly packaged. I strongly recommend this company.

For an inexpensive portfolio, this one ranks at the top. Well made with very good quality components, and very impressive for the cost involved.
Best In Its Class
from Los Angeles, CA
I was looking for an attractive way to present my music compositions (with a CD of the recordings) for college apps, and this seemed to be the best looking from the pictures. It turned out to be a more fantastic portfolio than I expected. Everything feels very substantial, not some cheap flimsy folder -- everything from the covers to the binder rings, to the CD case, which was a very nice touch touch. The black version is incredibly sleek, as well. I felt very good about my portfolio, and I will be stocking up on more of these soon.I just about always report something that could be improved when I review something, but I honestly can't think of anything for this portfolio. It's clean, attractive, and very professional looking.

By Smooth Jazz Man

I bought this presentation book for the portfolio requirement for my Health Information Management class thinking that it would be a pretty good deal for the price. But I was surprised by the quality of this product. After putting some of my documents in the plastic sleeves I realized just how much quality went into the construction of this product--I particularly love the clear plastic sleeves with the black paper inserts and the textured pattern on the outside cover of the premium version of the book. But the only negative thing I can say is that the binder can only hold about 30 documents comfortably. Maybe there should be a thicker size available. But my documents look fantastic! I just can't wait to show my teacher my impressive body of work in this fine presentation binder. I think that I will get more than a passing grade! I'm definitely going to show off the book to all my classmates when I'm finished putting it together. I think that there is going to be a bit of jealousy!
Not quite what I expected, but good.
from Richmond, KY
I expected something with a bit more substance, but for the price it is reasonable. It's basically like an Itoya. I do like the sizes that are available, especially the horizontal one.
from Susanville, CA
I use the book as my portfolio for my b&w, graphics design and reg photos. Quality that I know I can trust to store my best projects in.

By Jenny, mom of future Da Vinci
I got this to store my son's artwork. I love it. My only complaint, the cover material shows fingerprints, but he's seven so everything shows fingerprints. Overall, a great buy and I am reordering more for my budding artist to preserve his artwork for the future.
