Are the 10-25 or 10-18 suggested image numbers also a guideline for online portfolios?

If you create your art using digital program, do you have suggestions on paper type to print at home or have professional place print the art for you?

I have a Pina Zengaro and have been using the clear sleeves they sell for it. Do you think that looks tacky? The sleeves work better for the thick kind of paper the prof. printer uses which comes off of large rolls and can take a little time to flatten out by themselves.

In the portfolios that have no rings, just a flat seam, I have printed a spread in two pages and set them this way, vertical placed. Any thoughts on this?

I used Canva recently for postcards (and business cards.) They were fast and reasonable.

Other than the SCBWI showcase, when do you need to have a print portfolio? Especially if you never meet your client in person. If you have an online portfolio, do you really need to have a print portfolio today?
bonnie fireUrchin

Any advice for our online portfolios?
Jessica Mercado
01:00:58
I have a question about putting spot illustrations or showing a series. Should they be contained in one spread (multiple per page) or on separate pages?
pattywurster
01:02:52
What do you think about a short bio (a few lines) at the end of the portfolio?
joanneroberts
01:05:47
Have you seen a lot of intro pages or bio pages at the beginning or end? Several workshops from other countries have recommended that, but have you seen it often at US showcases? thanks
bonnie fireUrchin
01:06:32
Looking at your portfolio, Rebecca. lovely … I see you have © /your name on every image, not just on the page. You managed to make it look lovely, but is it really a requirement in your opinion? You have to take them all into photoshop to do this?
amy_H
01:06:42
if you use sleeves, should you have only pictures on the right hand side unless it is a spread that uses both sides? or should you put two unrelated/stand alone images across from each other (left and right page) so that there are no blank pages on the left?
joanneroberts
01:10:44
rebecca can you share to the big screen?
bonnie fireUrchin
01:14:26
What if those images are part of the same story?
joanneroberts
01:15:24
where can we see details of the other upcoming webinars again? Thanks
tanja
01:15:28
Yes, Squarespace.

what dpi do you use on you on line images 72 dpi seems to really degrade the picture… do art directors take that into account?
Tay

Sorry co-host. Didn't know my video was on... I was trying to get to speaker full screen instead of the additional resources post. My bad! Sorry!
