About a week ago a posted an RFI for portfolio design with a promise for =
a summary if there was interest. Well, I received more interest messages =
than ideas for portfolio design. However, I got good feedback from a few =
people and it's listed below.

The original posting was:

At the Chicago regional STC mtg. in October, I went to part of a session
on portfolios and the presenter recommended a nice leather 3 ring. Other
samples had leather carriers of other sorts to accommodate large pieces/
manuals. One other cool idea was getting some preprinted paper (like
from a catalog i.e. Paper Direct) to use for the cover/section headers.
One of the best ideas i got was from a prof who said to write a TOC for
your portfolio, and then guide readers through the collection from that. =
