Presenting Tearsheets

Anybody have some good suggestions for presenting tearsheets to editors or for grants, etc.? Especially if they’re from a magazine with double page spreads. Do you just cut them out of the mag, tape together, untaped, stapled in corner, laminated, any thoughts or ideas on the best way? I have a mix of PDF’s of the layout and actual tearsheets.

So any opinions on a compact, pleasent way to show them would be great.

when i worked in a studio, we literally tore them out of the magazine (after ripping the bulk of the magazine off, leaving a few pages on each side of your article… it was then easier to tear along the fold/ binding of the pages) and then put them in a 11×14 black binder (in case you are published in mags that are bigger than 8×10 or want to put in fliers/posters/ etc in)…

the ones people use for portfolios….the background is black and they are safeguarded in plastic. we put labels on the plastic for all, since not all publications have their name on the bottom of the spread. when you put the spread in the portfolio pages, you can place them very close to the binding and they look just like they do in the mag.

cd’s are nice too, but are more difficult to keep up to date if you are regularly published.

Photograph your tearsheets with you digi camera, clean up the shots and put them on your web site. That way they are close at hand all the time. You can always reference the url should editors need to take a look.

Scan them (or what Paul said which seems like the smarter more economical route) and resize to print out at desired size for your book. Include a caption with the name and date of publication if it’s not on the page.

Hi Donald,
I agreed with all the last anwers to your question. I have the tearsheets as a portfolio with pages cuted, in digital files, and upload to my ftp. Most of the Photoeditors prefer to “look” as a old style the paper. Means the paper where was published. Myself, as a foerm editor liked to anyone comes with prints or tearsheets. With a Cd you are in right way.
best wishes and good luck
