I've numbered my little sketches so it's easy to refer to in my communication with the client. Lets hope a few of them are in the right direction.

I always give sketches to my clients as separate files, but this is a neat way of doing it. It's nice to see all concepts together on one page.
Good Idea. Since I'm dealing with more local client's ,showing them the sketches is one of my option. This is nice for sharing online.
Veerle, it seems here that your sketches are pretty small. Do you find any merit to sketching larger. Do clients care?
Good idea. #1 is awesome by the way! Hope they pick that one
I never show my sketches to clients, only if they ask me. Good stuff though
Diggin' the direction on #1
@Nikhil Nigade I don't always do that either, but the few times I did it, it saved me time in the end because the client can tell whether you're going into the right direction or not. By this I'm not saying it's the right thing to do, because with each client and project it's a bit of a gamble. Some clients know exactly what they want and can make up their mind. Even though, they can be picky sometimes, they are the clients I like best working with. Clients that doubt all the time and can't make up their minds are the hardest to work with in my opinion, because convincing them into a certain direction is also not an easy job. This time I created a lot of variations (27 in total) on a few of the same ideas. I also always explain my ideas as well: why I tried out this or that etc.
@Rogie it depends a bit, they are usually small because they are doodles and initial ideas, so pretty fast drawn. The larger I draw them the longer it takes me and so the more difficult it becomes to draw them exact. They become more like an actual sketch or drawing. They usually vary between 1 to 3 cm in length or width. For me this size works best and fastest. I never had a client making a remark about the size really.
