Based on the reviews of others, I give this album 4 stars and I would recommend it to a friend, PROVIDED the description was changed to accurately describe it as FAUX leather, rather than "Classic" leather. As far as I'm concerned, it is false advertising to state in several places that this is a "leather" binder, or a "classic leather" binder when, in fact, it is not. Faux leather is plastic, made to look and feel like leather. I'm surprised that it is even possible to advertise it as "Classic Leather" in the title of the object, the way it is done here.
I absolutly love this album. I ordered the 6up page protectors a while ago and had to cut them down to fit into my post bound albums, and this distressed me a bit. When I was able to, I ordered 3 of these albums and love all 3 of them. Everything fits, the page protectors are thick and clear. I also ordered regular 12x12 page protectors and they were the same size as the ones sent with the album.
For me there is nothing negative to say about this. I filled one album and everything lies flat. If you are thinking about purchasing it, like I was, I wouldn't wait any longer.
I just switched from strap-hinge to 3-ring, and I really love these albums. My pages fit nicely and there's lots of room for additional pages. I'm also intrigued with the hybrid scrapbooking demonstrated on the enclosed sectioned page protector. We have a graduation picture and at least a million wallet-size senior pictures of our dgs, so I think I'll scrap the large photo and try hybrid scrapbooking with some of the wallet-sized photos, his invitation and the souvenir tassel we received. It's always exciting to find something new in scrapbooking!
After receiving the We R Memory Keepers - Classic Leather - 12x 12 three ring album, I can safely say I will never buy another album. The construction is quality. I love the clean lines, the sturdy feel of it and the smooth "leather" combines for a hard-to-beat basic scrapbook. I own approximately 12 albums and this is my favorite!
I love WRMK albums and they are the only ones I buy. If you are wondering if post bound or D-ring is best. D-ring is best!! and out of all the D-ring albums, WRMK is the best. They are excellent quality and also have great colors - and a wide variety of them to choose from.
I absolutely love these albums. These are now the only ones I use. I am not a chronological scrapper but I do store my pages chronologically. These albums make it easy to add pages later, and the new page protectors that allow you to store multiple photos are great. I can scrap my favorites and put the extras in too! These albumslook great on the shelf and hold up well to little hands constantly looking at them. I have recomended these to all my friends and they love them too!
I have switched out all my post albums to We R Memory Keepers 3-ring albums - and it is worth every dime. My family now feels much freer to look through the albums without fear of them falling apart.
The quality of these are exceptional and look VERY nice on my shelves!
The 3 ring albums are such a pleasure to use! The post-types are so difficult I would procrastinate putting pages in albums for as long as possible. Last night I loaded about 40 layouts into a 3-ring in about 10 minutes. No more post scrapbooks for me.
If you love 3-ring albums, these are the best! I recommened these albums for eveyone, so much better than the post albums. The leather is also very nice on the album.
This is a handsome album and well made. The pages turn easily inside. The only complaint I have is that it took about 20 minutes to get the labels off They came off in pieces, and I had to use my thumbnail to scrape. Also, why do they call it "Classic Leather" when it's faux leather (I knew this before I bought it)?
I was very happy with the weight of the page protectors. I think the 3 ring will be so much easier than the post or strap I used to use. The album is definitely more rectangular than my past albums. Only wished it could be more square, but that is really the only thing I wished was different.
I was a little disappointed with this album for two reasons. First, while it is called Classic LEATHER album, it is actually a FAUX leather. Second, the front cover has a slight concave look to it. Not sure that it will hold up over the long run without warping. Definitely not an album that you would want to pack too full for that reason.
