I really appreciate being able to buy these in bulk, especially as I recently gathered all of my completed pages from around the house and various totes and began loading them all into albums. It's wonderful to be able to buy more than 10 (or even 20) in a pack.
I was a little worried when these first arrived, as I hadn't noticed the "3 Ring Binder" part of the description when I ordered. I was smacking myself upside the head, wondering how I had missed that, and was very frustrated at the thought of returning them. I took a chance and opened the box to try one, and they worked perfectly with my post-bound albums. No problem at all.
They are thick enough to be protective, but thin enough to keep some bulk out of your albums. Regular 12x12 pages slide right in, with 2 pages back to back. I don't use a lot of thick embellishments, but I do use some, and these handle those pages without a problem. They also accomodate my thickest challenge, which is 2 pages back to back, made with multiple layers of Club Scrap's thick cardstock and dimensional embellishments, with no struggle to fit the pages and no distortion of the protector or the page.
I use these 12 x 12 page protectors in my Keeping Memories Alive 3-ring scrapbooks and they work perfectly! They hold two 12 x 12 scrapbook pages back-to-back (the way I do my scrapbooking) without any trimming necessary. While my layouts are not overly thick, I do put flowers and other three-dimensional embellishments on the pages and it is still not a problem. I am very pleased with them!
I love this product and will continue to buy more. I used to buy this product from a store that went out of business and was happy to see your site has them! I have learned, though, that the non-glare page protectors are too hard to see through, especially if you have any dimension to the page. I just stick with the clear ones and love them!
These are the only page protectors that I really like. I have tried other brands, but C-line are the onle ones that can fit in the various 12 x 12 binders that I get. I do not have to trim by layouts to get them to fit. They hold up to bulky and 3D elements very well. I have been using these since 2001.
Like those who have reviewed before me, I too have tried other brands. This is the best! These not only fit well, but are light yet protective. Heavier competitive ones make an album too heavy before it even reaches capacity, but not with these. They are light, fit right, and do the job of protecting without adding bulk.
