Hello, everyone! I am sorry if this question has already been addressed, but I am having trouble finding the answer.

What 12x12 page protectors do you most recommend for thick layouts for postbound albums? I am finding that with all of the embellishments on them, a lot of my pages are having trouble squeezing into regular 12x12 page protectors. I am finding that I often have to put only one layout in a protector with a pretty paper on the back of it, and even then it's sometimes a bit of a squeeze. I would be ever so grateful for suggestions.

Thanks!
Elle

Typically I just use the protectors made by the album's manufacturer. But I anti-recommend anything by Pioneer; even for quite flat pages, their protectors are too narrow and require me to trim about 1/4" off every layout.

I use (and like) C-Line page protectors. My albums are 3-ring, but I think C-Line also makes a post bound protector.

I use the We R Memory keeper ones. They seem to be a tad bit larger and I can fit my 3D pages in quite easily.

i like American Crafts page protectors. Not only they are usually roomier than any other, they also have spacers between the holes and the actual page pocket.
I know that some people who make chunky layouts begin their pages by cutting off a 1/8" off the side right away, so the layout is a little smaller to begin with and there's room to spare in the protector afterwards.

Funny
This is the ONLY feature I avoid when buying page protectors.
Arguably, they may be sturdier. But, in the D-ring albums I use, if the protectors have an extra space or column between the holes and the page, then they stick out the open edge of the album.

Ah, well, I've only ever done one D-ring album, so that would explain it.

They're probably perfect for a post-bound album. In fact, I notice the one linked above is listed for post-bound.

Thank you guys soooo much! I ordered and received the C-Line page protectors. I definitely am glad for the extra height, but yeah, I could still do with a tiny bit more room, as my embellishments are still getting a bit squished. I guess I am going a bit heavy on the flowers and butterflies on my layouts!

I will try the We R Memory Keepers and the American Crafts ones next. Like Aquabunny, I tend to do postbound albums more than D-Ring, so hopefully, I won't have the issue of the pages sticking out the sides.

I really appreciate everyone's input! Thank you!
