There is a reason that Stacy Julian recommends these for her LOM class...they are very durable. They hold a TON of photos and the pages are easy to switch around if they aren't in the order that you want them to be. I haven't personally needed to add any refill pages (beyond what it comes with) to any of my albums (I stack similar pics 4-5 deep in one pocket so the binder fills up & there isn't any room to actually add refill pages to the binder). Highly recommend these albums. Not only did none of the pages tear while I was filling them but my 2, 4, & 6 yr olds have flipped through the albums & we haven't had any trouble.
I am so excited by the quality of these albums (I bought 12). I find it impossible to throw pictures away when I scrapbook so I am keeping extra trip pictures and extra year pictures in these beautiful books. MAYBE I might give a couple away, but I doubt it. They were a great bargain!!
I am so glad to find these albums again. I haven't been able to find them locally for years. I prefer the 3-ring so I can move the pages around. I like the journaling area and the versatility of putting the photos up or sideways & the panographic shots fit too.
