to the snapload system. OMG - this is so much easier and worked like a charm. I have been having album issues because I had 75 page protectors that I needed to get in one album. The binding wasn't working for me on the ones that I had bought because they wouldnt' expand far enough.

I went to the LSS and spent 45 min looking at all the different albums to find one that would work. I finally landed on the Pioneer Snapload album that holds 300 LO's. It worked perfectly. It holds my bulky embellishments, my 75 page protectors , and expanded to fit. I am in love. I must find where I can buy more colors. The superstore doesn't have them.

Try J's. I know they have them... I won't buy another album!

(I have also found them in Kohl's!)

When you see them on sale... buy multiple!

I know they also have a kit that allows you to turn any postbound album into a snapload album. I'm not sure how well it works though.

Interesting... I need something like that for my wedding album. It's bursting out of the album that I bought before realizing how many pages it would need to hold.

I will post a pic when I get home. I got it at Joann's (um after looking at my LSS). Its titled the Pioneer Snapload album and its all black with a ribbon that runs down the left hand side. Not very babish but its a nice album (perfect for whoever needed the wedding album).

I was thinking about the system that converts the post bound but most albums just don't expand far enough. I could still add more if I needed to and there is room to grow.

I've converted all of my post-bound albums to the snapload type. The Pioneer albums are also carried at A's but very limited in color choises. The snapload binding hinges I buy from QVC - I've reordered them twice so they must carry them all the time. The package will convert 6 albums and they work just fine.

i love my snapload converters! my album was falling apart as a post bound and now it seems it will last a long time with the snapload in place! if you can find the albums or you have old albums that arent working anymore.. the converters are definitely a good buy!

All my albums have been converted to Snap Load. I love them. I have bought them here at the Super Store. A couple of weeks ago my LSS had a 50% off everything in the store sale for their mailing list only. I bought every snap load they had.

I "converted" all of my post-bound albums with Snap Lock Kits. The apparatus is durable, functional and easy to use. I mention them and show a sample in my latest E-book, A Scrapbooker's Guide: Scrapbook Planning and Cover Designs (link below). Don't know how I managed before without them.

So these work on ANY postbound album?

I believe they do. I actually bought an album that had the system pre-loaded from the factory by Pioneer . However, my understanding is that you can use the packets that they sell in any post bound album.

My sister is also hooked on these albums, and she purchases them from the superstore or our LSS. She can fit a lot more layouts into her albums than I can in mine. I know they come in various colors because she has them in four colors, black, red, light blue and lilac.

Those are the colors. I just found one in Lilac and went ahead and purchased the other one in stock which was black. They are hard to find and I can't lcoate them in the superstore (i tried).
