I have been using some folios that hold 8 4x6 photos that I have purchased from a local supplier. They seem a little pricey to me and the ones on ebay are not any better. Where do you folks buy these (assuming you do) at a decent price?

If you're not looking for anything too fancy, check out your local art & hobby stores. I've purchased an 8-pix and 16-pix 4x6 folio for about a buck or two in both places. I use those primarily as mini-portfolios - keep one or two in the car for chance encounters, etc.

The hobby stores (Michaels and Hobby Lobby are both througout the south) also tend to have a little bit fancier ones that I've used for sweethearts/significant others/spouses and you can find those for under $10.

PS-good to see another EMT/P on the board.

Steve,

Try Marathon Press http://www.marathonpress.com

They offer a wide range of folders and photo holders and I have used their products for years and they offer a good quality at a reasonable price and they do offer volume discounts.

Also, if you have a special event you can have lettering printed on the folders (at additional cost of course) so give them a try.

Good luck.

If you're looking for nice books, go hit the Container Store - the books they have are 1/2 as much as the local photo-stores want and they're the exact same thing...
