Poster Portfolios

silas23silas23 SoCalPosts: 98
Hello..... I'm looking to put a bunch of posters out of the tubes and put them in a portfolio. Does anyone have any suggestions? I'm looking for something in 18x24 and 20x28. Any help would be much appreciated!

    Itoya works great for 18x24. I would look into baroque or art vault for up to 24x36

    Agreed with both of the above.  I got an Itoya, but that only held so many of my posters.  I got tired of tubes being stored everywhere in my house, getting damaged, etc, so I finally broke down and got the baroque.  Its pricey, but it was worth it to me.

    My wife got me a baroque for my birthday... it's fantastic.

    As others mentioned, it isn't cheap, but IMO it's the way to go.

    For those who have bought the baroque 24x36, is it still good for putting 18x24 prints in it along with larger ones? The reason I ask because about half of my prints I would need it for are 18x 24 but I also have several larger prints. Would rather not buy 2 though. Any help would be appreciated!

    I have the 24x36 and put 18x24 refills in it and it worked fine. Since then, I've gotten a 18x24 for all those size prints and have the other for the larger prints.

    Most of my prints are 18" x 24", but I do have a few 12"w x 36"t that just fit.

    It appears the sleeves are about exactly 36" tall, so my TOTD Philly & NY prints as well as my PJ Hale from NYC in '15 fit well enough.

    Just to reinforce some of the comments above, I have two from Baroque that I used to do the same thing (get all my stuff out of tubes), and they have worked beautifully.

    Love this forum for this kind of stuff. Thanks for everyone’s input. Think I’ll start with the big one then maybe grab the 18x24 later on down the road.

    For the other people here who have a baroque portfolio: how do you store it? At first I stood it up on its side, w/ the handle on top, but the sides couldn’t support the weight. After a day or two it started buckling / getting wavy. Ever since I’ve had it laying flat, but it takes up too much space to store it like this long term. 
    I did put some cardboard inside the covers to add some support, but that only does so much.

    Fits under this coffee table which I'm using as a TV stand in a room where I keep a bunch of junk. I've heard some keep it under a bed

    Yeah, I was thinking it would have to be something like that. 

    Nice backpack btw.

    Another thought would be to use hook(s) to hang it by the handle, probably low enough so the long zippered edge is touching the floor enough to take some of the weight off.

    Thought about that too, the hassle is finding the available space to hang it in a room that isn't the basement or attic, neither of which are environments where I want to store my posters. (appreciate the suggestion, though)

    I have the larger portfolio designed for movie posters and ended up putting a piece of foam core board on each side of the case.  They're quite a bit stronger than standard cardboard and can handle the weight of it being on it's side while stored behind my living room couch.

    I have mine under a dresser, that has a little 4" gap under it.

    This will likely be my course of action... thanks for the tip. 

    Do you know how thick of a piece you used?

    Not 100% certain, but it was most likely 3/16" thick.

    so i have a bunch of concert posters and one movie poster, which is an odd 27x40. the rest are mostly 18x24, some 24x36. if i buy the 24x36 one, would the 18x24's fit as well? or do i need to get some type of insert to keep them steady?

    i see my question has been answered. so you need the exact size of sleeve for the print or it will shift around i assume, @ski-bum?

    I have the 24” x 36” portfolio, and it accommodates the 18” x 24”s, but it needs the reinforcement. Truth be told, I would imagine the smaller size would also need the reinforcement if you intend to stand it on its side (which is the only reasonable way to store it if you don’t have room to lay it flat.) The portfolio isn’t firm, and the posters alone won’t provide enough support. 

    Your 11” x 17”s will also fit... the sleeves will be oversized for them, but at least you’ll have all your posters in one spot (with the exception of that 27” x 40” movie poster... there’s no squeezing that into the 24” x 36”.

    I haven't had problems with smaller prints sliding in the baroque sleeves. I have a bunch of itoya 18x24 books with the sleeves already installed and then I put everything larger in the baroque 24x36. I only have a very few that are exactly 24x36 - - many are 12X36, 20x26, 21x31, etc. I haven't had any problem with excessive sliding of prints that don't fill the sleeve entirely.
