Hey, folks. I need to find a source for the following product.

A new client wants to produce a series of posters (up to 30)
approximately 18" x 24" (vertical). The posters will be used this way:

First, the teacher will display one poster in a class, probably on a
desk or flat surface as he or sher leads a discussion about the
contents of the poster.

Then the teacher will take the poster off the display and put it on a
wall or bulletin board for the students to see and contemplate later.
The posters should be easily (and easely!) portable.

I am thinking of a rigid portfolio that can be flipped back on itself
and serve as an easel. The portfolio should have a mechanism to allow
individual posters to be removed and then replaced (a clamp system or
rings that can be opened and closed). And it should have a way to close
and secure, like a button or zipper flap, which may serve as the bottom
(desk) side of the easel when it is open and placed on the desk or
table.

Anybody got an idea where I can find such things? I'm in the process of
developing a design and production estimate for the client, and this
will obviously be a major cost component!

BTW, if you've got a better way to skin this cat, please suggest it.
The client wants a way to display posters to a classroom of 5th graders
for a discussion, then put them up for a while, and then take them
down and protect them for later use. Right now, the prototype
production run will be somewhere between 10 and 50 sets; if it works
out for them, they will contemplate a much larger production run, 1000
or more. Economies of scale will become a factor at that point.

Thanks.
