So with all the talk about portfolios I thought a thread devoted to the hard copy portfolio would be a good thing to add in to the mix. Feel free to leave your comments, questions, and opinions here for general discussion. Personally, I have always had my pieces printed on 13x19 HP Prepress paper. But I'm beginning to rethink that since I ship my portfolios to possible clients that I am wanting to do freelance for (I only freelance by referral). I was thinking since a lot of my items are packages, in exploded (layout) view, that a nice ~65lb Vellum Cover Stock in 11x17 size might be a better choice. Also here is a question too ... I usually dont print the dielines because I feel it detracts from the piece. But it seems that less and less designers are creating their own dielines these days, and that perhaps adding it might be a good thing? Opinions?
