I have several small album that hold ten sheets. They have posts. Of course, they can be extended. However, there is a struggle in getting the extra protectors in and the ever-threat of the album popping open. No slippery mess to clean up off the floor! The D-Ring stops that problem!
I do digital scrapping, and have easily gotten 70 sheets in them. My layouts are not typical photo paper, so I believe I can go up to 140. So, I purchased the American Crafts 12X12 Album and the American Crafts Page Protectors to go with them. I can move the whole page if I want, they are wider, flipping won't bend them. I can put more of these in the large ring binder.
I just purchased my fifth Customizable American Crafts Modern Album. It is perfect for my needs. The D-ring album is so simple to use. I hated trying to add and rearrange the pages in my other albums, tying to put the new layout in chronological order. This takes all the frustration out of adding new pages and rearranging existing pages. The album also holds a lot of pages and they are easy to flip through and view.
I think the decision was the best I ever made!
I now own 3 of the American Crafts Customizable 12x12 D-ring binders. These binders are very well made, very sturdy, and very attractive. It is fun to customize the outside of the binders. The D-rings work very well, no overlapping or dragging. The binders hold a lot of pages and work really well at keeping completed pages safe in your crafting tote while traveling to and from crops. I am planning on purchasing more of these in the future.
I really like this album. It is so easy to decorate and customize for your need.
And some three ring binder album are really hard to open or close. This one is pretty easy, and doesn't require a whole lot of pressure. And it acutally closes all the way so you don't have to worry about your pages coming out of the binder.
