I have been an amateur photographer for many years, but only recently started to make my own prints with an Epson 3880. I usually print on 17x22 fine art paper like Canson Baryta, Epson Exhibition, Velvet Fine Art, Cold Press etc. i have no commercial aspirations, I do this because I just enjoy the beautiful prints that come out. I print landscapes 21x14, and portraits 16x20.

What I do want to do is to look at these from time to time, and share them with family and friends. Framing them is not practical as I already have over 100 of them with more to come. I have tried searching on the net for albums or portfolios to store and show off my pictures, but have not found any. I would appreciate suggestions on how to display these in view of my limited needs?

Thanks.

Itoya has an extensive line of display portfolios, including 17x22 and 18x24 that would seem to suit your needs very well - archival materials, 24 polyethylene sleeves with black divider page for 48 print capacity.

I would be very wary of people's handling of individual sleeved large prints, even with heavy art papers, as I have had several 17x22-25" heavy (300-315 gsm) prints "crinked" and ruined this way. The folios work very well, and are quite reasonably priced at about $40.

Excellent! This should work and is very reasonably priced. Thank you, Pete, this is very helpful.

Your're welcomed! I've been using them since looking around for a folio six or seven years ago to have on the side for a show. I've given out many 8.5x11 albums (less than $10 as I recall) to family and friends of weddings, etc I've shot, keep several 13x19's of art prints, and a 18x24 (which I recommend over the 17x22 to allow more room at the fold as well as wider 17 inchers).
