I love these page protectors because they are a little wider at the binding area which allows you to add more pages to your books without them getting stuffed. With normal page protectors there is no room for the pages to turn hence it messes up your pages. If you dont make thick scrapbooks the regular pages are fine, but I make thick books and these pages are the best there are. Very sturdy and a great price.
After reading the reviews, I was a little skeptical to buy these as I was worried they would not work in my DCWV albums. Prior to ordering, I went to the DCWV.com website and sent a question of them asking which refills worked for the albums I purchased and told them the exact albums I had. I also wanted to know if the refills contained extension posts. I received an email back in a timely manner indicating to me that these were the refills I needed and that they do come with extension posts. The albums I own are all "premium" line albums. So, if in doubt, email the company directly. Enjoy!
These are the perfect pages for my album, I am thrilled to have them. Like other reviewers have pointed out, these are refills for premium albums only. There is some helpful info on the package that I think should be reprinted here: "These Premium Line Album Refills work best with our premium post bound albums from Old World, Far East, Pocket Full of Posies, Once Upon A Time, Nana's Kids & Luxury Collections." If you do not have a DCWV album from one of those lines these page protectors are NOT for you!
One common complaint I've seen in these reviews needs to be addressed. There is a reason the pages 'stick out' 1/4 inch more than other pages! If you've ever made a scrapbook thicker than 10 pages you'll find the binding gets doubly thickened by the protectors and the paper. -Therefore- the extra 1/4 helps the pages lie flat when the book is open (or being looked at!) Figure it out!
I read the others reviews and I learned (too late) that these refills are for special albums, I think that tin the description should specify.
I read the other reviews which has prompted me to write one too. I had also purchased the wrong refills at one time, however, once I got the right ones, I loved them! My only suggestion is to use hole punch reinforcements before putting them in your album. The only place I could find to purchase them was online at Joann.com. Couldn't find them in any craft stores or any other online site. Pricing is reasonable as well.
These album refills are intended for PREMIUM STACK ALBUMS only... they will not fit any other DCWV albums. Because I used the refills with the correct albums, I had no problems. I buy the refills all the time and I will continue to buy them.
These pages are of poor quality. They rip out at the holes and won't stay in the album. I was very disappointed.
