Default Design Porfolio, Interviewing, Etc.

Hi, I've got a few questions regarding the topics mentioned in the title.

This might sound like a funny question, but when presenting your physical, printed portfolio to a potential employer, should you simply hand it to them and let them ask questions if they come up? Or do you flip through the pages yourself and explain the meaning/characteristics of every piece? I would guess the former, but I figured I'd ask in case that's not conventional or "hands on" enough. Also, should I add a little piece of paper by every design piece describing it for its purpose (magazine ad, book cover, etc.)?

I need to create a sample sheet with 3-4 of my best graphic design pieces. I'm not familiar with the conventional sample sheet size.

I also need some business cards and possibly portfolio pieces printed and am wondering about prices. If you go into a print shop with some PDF files that you want 4-color printed on basic 8.5 x 11" or 11 x 17" how much do you think they typically charge per piece?
