Back in the days when I was doing job interviews, I presented my samples
in a 3-ring binder made from computer circuit boards. I used tabs to
separate the samples and a TOC with a paragraph about each sample.
As another poster suggested, I included the rough inputs from engineering
with one of the finished manuals.

When I put the binder on the table, I always received instant attention
and was always asked where I bought the binder. If I called back, I'd
hear something like, "Oh, you're the man with the circuit board binder".

I know they didn't hire me because of the binder, but they never forgot
who I was; important if many being interviewed.
I bought mine at Paper Direct, and I've seen them at office supply stores.
