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.
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 think the decision was the best I ever made!
If you own an American Crafts 3 ring album (which I HIGHLY recommend) then this is the perfect fit.
I like that the area on the side where the holes are, is thicker and wider then most page protectors. being a bit wider means that your pages don't get bent up when you are flipping through your album.
I tried using other page protectors with my album, but found that American Craft page protecters are the best fit.
I like these page protectors because they are so sturdy and a bit larger than 1212. Finished pages slip in and out so easily and I don't have to cut my 12 X 12 paper to fit -- which is what I had to do when using Pioneer 12x12 protectors. The extra bit of space also allows for thicker items to fit well in the pocket. Will continue to order them as I need them.
