When I started scrapbooking 7 or 8 years ago, the 3-ring binders were all that I used. None of the local craft stores carry 3-ring binders for 12x12 paper around here. I was so happy to find these online. This is the same brand and style as the ones I already have for my 8 1/2 x 11 paper scrapbooks. Thanks so much for carrying this product!
