I also LOVE my post bound albums...but I might have to try D-rings! Do they hold a LOT more than the post-bound? Also, do they take the same refill pages?

Another good thing with d rings is that you can mix the sizes of pages within the album if you like that look. And it is easy to move pages around. I am a d ring gal I won't go back! lol!

Well, I guess my next one will have to be a D ring so I can see what this is all about. I've recently had to re-arrange some pages in my post bound books and, man, what a P.I.A. that was. Thanks for the enabling!!

This is EXACTLY why I LOVE d rings...I have 12x12, 8.5x11, 8x8, 6x12, and 6x6 all in the same album...love that!

I still manage to fill them up just as fast, but I do like them better than post bound albums.

I haven't tried them-are they as pretty on the outside? Is there a lot of variety?

What about 2 page spreads. Do they sit far apart when the book is open?

I love AC D-Rings!! I will NEVER go back! There is lots of variety (see below)! There are FAR MORE colors, sizes, varieties, etc., than what I've cited below. Just search the Superstore here for "American Crafts D-Ring". Oh, and there are other brands, too, but I've only tried AC.

Also, the pages do sit apart (as in two-page spreads), but if it really bothers you, you can staple the page protectors together at the spine to keep them together. But I have found that it doesn't really bother me at all. The convenience of having them in a D-Ring album far outweighs any minor problem like that for me.

I highly recommend them!!

I love binder books, been using them for a few years when it was really hard to find them. I rarely do 2pagers so the gap between the rings do not bother me.

I mix up the page sizes in the binder too. I also use the Bazzill 12x12 lickety split 4x6 photos to hold extra photos. I see the store does not carry them but they are called Lickety Splits.

Hmmm, may have to look into these. I keep hearing about them, but have too been worried about the look of a two page spread--especially now that I'm getting brave and have been cutting photos to overlap the middle seam. Will have to remember about stapling the page protectors...

I forgot I had this picture in my gallery of an open one. You can see the spacing of the pages when it's laid flat and open. Hope this helps!

i have both post bound and d-rings, i prefer d-rings. they hold so much more and you can easily add in a LO if you need to.

The superstore has the We R Memory Keepers pages.

I just bought some of them. I'm pretty excited about using them. A great way to include all those 'extra' photos in your albums, without having to scrap them all!

I agree, D-Ring binders are much much better, I bought my first one a couple of months ago and will never go back, like everyone else said it is so much easier to move layouts around and what not. And they hold SO MUCH MORE!!!
