I'm having great success with a three-ring binder. It is a subdued
cranberry color, and my examples, if single page, are in transparent
sleeves; other wise, I set several-page samples of manuals or reports
behind tabbed page dividers. I have a couple of copies of magazine
ads I've created and a nicely bound annual report slipped into the
pocket in the back so that the client can pull these out and handle
them. In the front pocket, I have my brochure and cards.

As I said this has been well received. I usually hand it over to them
and let them flip through it while I give comments and answer
questions. They always take a brochure and card...and usually place
an order.
