Silverprint Guide to Portfolios
Portfolio Boxes are a great option, they are a classic design and very elegant way to present prints. They have the advantage of prints being easily rearranged in your portfolio as well as being able to take them out for a closer look.
Our clamshell style portfolio boxes all open to lie flat for easy transfer of prints from one side to the other. All box sizes refer to the size of print they hold. We have four box options available, as follows:
SP Portfolio Box
The SP Portfolio Box is the newest addition to our range and becoming one of our most popular. These are archival, paper lined, acid free, pH neutral, buckram covered clamshell boxes.
Differing from our top of the range Silverprint Archival Boxes in that the SP boxes are lined with paper in lieu of archival boxboard and have a slight lip around the edge.
They come in a choice of two depths 3.5cm (which will accommodate approximately 20-30 prints) and 6.5cm (40-60 prints), and two internal linings, white and black.
Silverprint Archival Portfolio Box
The Silverprint Archival Portfolio Box is a long standing favourite. Silverprint have been selling these top of the range, museum quality archival storage and presentation boxes for over 20 years.
They are covered with Library-quality acrylic impregnated black buckram, beautifully hand made to our specifications. They come in a choice of Full Depth and Half Depth, and can hold approximately 20-40 prints depending on paper weight and box size.
Silverprint Print Box
