So, I am getting ready to start scrapping vacation photos. I have been inventorying and orgainzing, making lists of what I need/want things like that. Now, I need to decide on what kind of album to purchase, the screw posts or the rings?My concern with the screw posts is that it won't hold everything I need to put in there. While I am not planning on making a scrap page for EVERY photo, I do want to purchase protectors to hold the additional photos so that everything will at least be together. What are your experiences with the different kinds of albums?
It seems that most use the D-rings. I use both. I like the look of the posts better, they are usually cheaper and often have better cover choices, but the rings are easier to switch pages around, hold more and are sturdier.
I like the look of post-bound better, but recently did my first ring-bound. That said, consider how many pages you might be making for this album - there's a certain point at which even a 3-ring album would need to have the pages split into two albums.
D-ring here too. Although I like the look of the posts books, I put a lot of pages in mine - I want a complete trip in one book and I can put 40 protecter (80 pages) easily in a D-ring. I've gone as many as 92 pages.
I also like the wide spines on the D-rings - I buy the scrapbooks at Hobby Lobby because they have the largest space to insert a label.
