I'm doing a book of a 8.5 x 11 pages and was wondering what kind of binders i can use? would a normal 3 ring binder be ok?

Normal 3 ring binders are not big enough to use with the page protectors. You have to buy Scrapbook 3 ring binders.

I havea regular letter-size 3-ring binder that I put my scrapbook pages into. And yes, they are in sheet protectors. I don't have a problem with them being too large to fit.

Me either. My binders are at least 3" or larger.

My only concern with 'regular' office-type binders would the quality. Some of those get sticky over time and the pages stick to the covers.

I'm not sure about the archival quality either. Although, if your pages are in 'safe' protectors, it may not be an issue? Don't know for sure. I guess time will tell.

My big issue with office or "regular" binders is the metal rings/binding themselves. They're not made to hold a lot of weight and my books tend to get heavy! I did a couple early albums - 10 and 11 years ago - in regular office binders and the binders really got stressed. One broke and the other doesn't close all the way so pages fall out.
