    Source for Portfolio boxes/case aside from Light Impressions

    I am looking for a new source for 16x20 portfolio cases. I have a half dozen of the Sentinel cases that Light Impressions sells, and the hinges are a joke, they literally detach themselfs from the cases. I am looking for a sturdier case. Any ideas/websites?

    Thanks,

    Ken

    Check out the ones made by Cachet that are sold through Freestyle. MUCH!! less expensive than LI and the one I have, at least, is very well made.

    Use "cachet boxes" in the search window.

    What material are these made of? They appear to be plastic, but I can't be sure.

    i also would recommend portfoliobox in pawtucket ri.
    they do a great job! in addition to presentation cases, clamshell boxes &C,
    they also custom make presentation books - hand made + bound.

    very good quality, everything is custom-made and
    they are nice people too ( i live a few miles away )

    Here's a link to their site. The boxes are similar to the LI ones...'archival' fiber board covered with a cloth or cloth-like material. Mine is more rigid than the 11x14 ones I had from LI and seems very well made. If I were traveling a lot with it, though, I'd find a suitable outer case for it with a handle. For the price, it'd be hard to beat I think.

    Archival methods seem to carry high quality products. I haven't handled their travel cases yet.
