What Is A Portfolio?
No, we’re not talking about a financial portfolio or a design portfolio, but rather the actual physical storage device that those portfolios may fit within. A portfolio is a foldable and handheld contraption that is used to carry a person’s papers and office, school, or art supplies from one place to the next in a manner that is both safe and fashionable.
The portfolio is a close, but smaller relative to the long-loved briefcase, and is oftentimes carried either inside of or in lieu of a briefcase. The portfolio may even be used similarly to the briefcase in many of the same ways. Some of the similarities that a portfolio has to the briefcase are that portfolios often sport handles for easy carrying, zippers or elastic bands in order to safely contain the contents, as well as several compartments or pockets for important papers and office supplies.
Some of the differences that a portfolio has from a briefcase are that it may offer a lighter-weight package for those who want a more streamlined productivity outlet.
A great example of a portfolio is this Ultimate Organized Portfolio. It has a flap opening that is secured by duel clasps which reveal two large pockets and a long zippered pocket. This particular model can fit a laptop up to 15.5 inches and has a top handle &shoulder straps that are easy for carrying.
