Ways to use a large presentation binder you may not have thought of before

  posted by: Allison West

Today, I’m taking a stand for the sometimes forgotten 11" x 17" size paper documents that get crammed into binders that simply don’t fit.

Go ahead, see if you can get them inside a regular-sized binder without damage. They get folded, ripped, spotted and stained because there aren’t too many binders and page protectors sized to fit. And what if you have both sizes of paper - 11" x 17" and 8 ½" x 11" - that you want to place together - and maybe even show off - in the same binder?

Don’t larger paper documents deserve a special binder too?


Easily present, store and organize larger documents

UniKeep’s presentation binder is a large format, fully-enclosed portfolio case binder that's perfect for storing and presenting 8 ½" x 11" inch or 11x17-inch documents. Ten clear 11 x 17 inch page protectors are included.

Our customers tell us that it’s hard to find a binder that holds an 11" x 17" sheet in landscape orientation.

  • This large portfolio binder uses a slim-profile construction that snaps completely shut. You don’t have to worry about losing your documents or damaging them from exposure to light, moisture or dirt.
  • The included protective pages are manufactured from durable, acid-free polypropylene so your work remains in perfect condition, no matter what you put it through.

  • Unlike other portfolio cases on the market, this one allows you to include both larger and smaller items together. No more folding and creasing things that don’t fit or carrying your larger items separately.

It’s also easy to increase Unikeep’s large format binder’s capacity simply by adding more protective sheets, in whatever configuration suits your particular organizational purpose.

Fun ways to use UniKeep’s Presentation Binder

This binder has so many unique uses at home or at the office. Here are a few ways our customers on Amazon have told us they use it.

Home remodeling projects: Store and organize all your home renovation papers in one place. UniKeep’s large format binder can be used as a home remodel organizer. Blueprints, contracts, contractor contact details, invoices, receipts, ideas, sketches and photos all have a place here. Include calendar pages so you can track your progress. Before long, you’ve created a home renovation planner and organizer, all in one. As your project progresses, you can change the orientation and order of your documents to suit your organization style.

And don’t be afraid to get the case dirty because your documents will be protected inside the acid-free protective pages.

Professional work portfolio: Why is a portfolio important? Job interviews, performance reviews, and salary negotiations can be strengthened with a strong work portfolio. A full portfolio full that shows successes, increased responsibility and lists of accomplishments will help prove your worth and may increase the odds you’ll get the good review, promotion or increase you’re asking for. Plus, your supervisor will also be impressed that you put a work portfolio together and put the time and effort in to show your enthusiasm for your work.

Photography and artwork: This binder is popular with students and professionals who need a protective case for carrying samples from place to place. For students, it makes a sleek presentation binder for school projects (think art, science, history). Students in advanced placement classes can use them for all the extra assignments they receive throughout the school year. Parents can use them as school artwork binders and count on them for long-term, archival safe storage of those precious crayons and colored construction paper masterpieces.

Creative businesses: Ad agencies, public relations firms and consulting companies can use a UniKeep large format binder as a marketing portfolio for sales presentations and client consultations. Charts, graphs, market studies, competitive studies, creative samples, reports, product information, and customer reviews are just a few ideas of what can go inside a professional portfolio. The poly pages can be switched out easily to allow for multiple uses and projects over time.

Landscaping, window replacement, and service business owners: Businesses that rely on recommendations and testimonials from customers to help acquire new business can use this large-format binder as a service offering portfolio. It’s perfect for showing prospective customers “before and after” photos of landscape projects, lawn improvements, tree removal, painting, and exterior remodeling/renovations. A product portfolio with handwritten customer testimonials always makes an impression and can be showcased adjacent to their specific project with the split-sheet format page protectors.

Paper memorabilia storage: What’s the best way to store paper long term? If collecting smaller posters, postcards, scrapbooking paper and embellishments, old advertisements, concert tickets and the like is your thing, a UniKeep presentation binder can tackle your largest collections and help you to show them off. To make it a keepsake, try writing down small stories and anecdotes about how you acquired a particular item - such as where and when it was acquired and how much you paid.

  • Bookmarks
  • Cigar bands
  • Sheet music, concert, and art event brochures
  • Tickets of all types
