    We only use presentation folders for commercial bids. They are too expensive for basic residential proposals.

    I like the idea, and for under a buck a piece not a bad price. I would think you would only hand them out to commercial or high end residential accounts. I made up a presentation flip folder, pictures, license, insurance cert, and services. The last two pages are the basic agreements for bi and weekly service. I say do it if you think it could help.

    I have never used a presentation folder, but I do have my business letterhead on all proposals and insert the proposal in a folder from wal-mart with the clear protection cover. But if you are going to submit that many bids that is a good price for custom folders imo.

    I disagree....I hand them out to almost every estimate I do. I have a few thousand of my logos printed out as stickers and buy cheap (but nice) folders from staples. I enclose my maintenance agreement, fert program, fert contract, list of services, contact sheet, mission statement, and refer a friend advertisement. I can guarantee that I've more than paid for them. They get rave reviews.
