portfolio presentation materials in n.y.c.?

Looking for a brick and mortar store in NYC that sells high end portfolios cases, boxes, etc., or other portfolio presentation methods. Would prefer a place that has showroom and stocks the items available. If this even exits, I figure it’s in NY.

Any info greatly appreciated…

Are you looking for a place exclusively dedicated to presentation materials? I don’t know of one, but you see some options, on the floor,  at places in NY like Pearl, B & H, and while they have a more limited supply, at K & M where I just bought an archival clamshell style box.

Try House Of Portfolios in Chelsea, they have a website, they customize portfolios…

Brewer Cantelmo http://www.brewer-cantelmo.com/ They have tons of samples there. Might be more expensive then House of Portfolios, but the quality is better. Some portfolios are readily available, some are custom made, depending on what you are looking for. Close to Madison Square Garden and Penn Station.

I have one of each, one from House of Portfolios and one from Brewer-Cantelmo and, as others have said, Brewer-Cantelmo portfolios are much better. Go with them. At this point though, how many people do drop-offs anymore?! Also, it’s very easy to make Epson ink jet books or to send a CD. . . I think these big leather cases are becoming a thing of the past.

Not sure if you can purchase these in NY but worthwhile looking for. A French company called Prat who are based in Paris make very nice leather books. They are widely available in London and are very reasonably priced with various sizes. They come in Black leather, Brown or Blue. The sleeves supplied with these folio’s are crass but you can get nice acetate inserts that fit.

The only problem with these folios is the ring binder mech  is difficult to replicate…..because it’s French!!! So you cannot punch your own inkjets! I have several of these leather books 
which have always been liked for there compact style.

As for drop offs I believe it is back in Fashion. So by the time you read this it will probably be unfasionable….


BTW Davin I left a message on your cell on Friday…..Give me a call!

I have found the website for Prat. www.prat.com  if you click US they have a list of stockists in New York
or this is the direct link to the books to see the product…http://www.pratfab.com/gb/Produits_standards/presentation/bookspirale/pampa143-147/Pampa143147.htm 

They are approx $40 for a standard 12×10 inch book
