Some people will ask you to leave your portfolio with them, so they can
take it home and read your samples. That'll be the last time you see
your portfolio.

So always have something to leave with them. Sure, bring your snazzy
color stuff, because everyone's impressed by high production valuse,
but have photocopies on hand to leave behind.
