    This is a question for... well, I guess all of you wedding and portrait professionals out there.

    With the economy being the way it is, I have had more clients asking to order large prints (16x20 & up) without a frame, the way I normally sell them. I have begun to make the accommodation simply because most of them are longtime, good clients who I know will be around in the future. I have been having the prints dry mounted for durability, but I would also like to have a (fairly) inexpensive way to present and protect them as well. Handing them over in polypropylene sleeves seems rather low rent for my tastes. I was thinking something like a presentation box or hardboard folder. I use custom labeled boxes for smaller items, but can't find anything for larger ones.

    Anyone have any ideas for presenting large prints to clients?

    Folders can do the trick if you can find big enough ones... photo folders.

    Thanks guys, but I was looking for something specific.

    I find that nicer packaging really makes an impact with my clients. However, it is ultimately just temporary packaging and I need to keep the price point down.

    Anyone out there have a unique way of presenting larger prints?
