Art Portfolio Cases: Combination Of Style And Security

By Shannon Hilson

After all the time and effort it takes to create a work of art, the last thing you want is for all of your hard work to be ruined by being bent and mangled inside your portfolio. It only takes one bump or spilled drink to undo hours of hard work. While soft sided portfolios do provide some protection fro your work, if you want the maximum protection you should consider using metal portfolios for your artwork or presentations.

Why go spend the extra money on metal portfolio cases? There are a couple of very good reasons: security and style.

Protection and Safety

The most important thing while carrying an artwork is that your art work comes out in the exact same condition in which it went inside your portfolio. When you are taking your work to be shown to a client you want that buyer or client to see the best possible shape of your artwork. Although leather and vinyl cases provide some protection, they stand no where when compared to metal portfolio cases.

Although you may try to protect your portfolio from harm while you are out, accidents do happen. Typically these accidents happen at the worst possible time. You are on your way to a big client for a job that could result in a large payday, and that is when the person walking by you on the street trips and falls right into your portfolio.

If you are carrying a case that is cheap, then your artwork may get damaged very badly. However, if you have spent a little bit of money and invested in a good metal portfolio case, then your art pieces would remain safe and protected from any kind of harm.

There can be situations when you are required to meet your client for a big presentation and it is pouring outside. While there may be some kind of protection provided by some of the inexpensive cases against elements of nature such as rain, none might be able to stand up against a rainstorm. The only option you may be left with is either to reschedule or risk your presentation. Either of the options is not at all desirable. The weather resistance of you case can be improved by choosing a metal case with a good seal around the edges.


If you are thinking of making a statement even before opening your portfolio, then you should go in for a silver metal portfolio. If sends out a clear message that the contents of the portfolio are worth protecting and are not generally shown to all clients.

In today’s business world the competition is fierce. There are many clients that see several presentations each week and if you are not above the head and shoulders of all other presenters, you may get lost in the crowd. Sometimes to win a job, the image of the presenter mush more important than the image of the presentation. On way to get noticed and stand out from all other is by carrying a portfolio that is both stylish and which exudes professionalism.

So if you want to present your art work with style and safety, the best option for you is a metal art portfolio case.
