HTH. Look around. Try a few different kinds, and you'll figure out what works for you.

They also have a snap load style that local scrappers seem to really like, and you can convert a post-bound to snap load. I haven't had a chance to try it. The Pioneer Photo Albums web site is very minimalist, but you can find their products both online with more comprehensive descriptions, and in local craft and scrapbook specialty stores.
When searching online, be sure to look for "scrapbook" or "memory book" or "memory album" to find books designed for 12x12 pages, rather than photos inserted in smaller slots. Hope this helps.

For me it can often be cheaper to buy a whole album than for 10 refils (prices are crazy in the UK) so I try and pick up albums at sale prices and store them until I need them. I am not too fussy about the cover but try and stick to a shade of blue so they all blend together in the bookcase.
I have dabbled with 8 by 8 but keep coming back to 12 x 12 - you just can't beat the impact

It seems like a really good idea and I bought several when they first came out. (In case anyone is wondering what I am talking about...the snap converter is used with post-bound albums to replace the posts. Basically the posts are removed, and a strap goes thru the holes and can be cinched in place instead of unscrewing and rescrewing posts. The strap converter makes it MUCH easier to add pages.) I found that the snap converter worked well as long as the album did not have too many pages...no more than 30 sheet protectors. After that, they do not hold their grip, and the album gets "loose and sloppy". Maybe they have improved the design since then, but I gave up on using them on any album that I anticipate might get big. Which is self-defeating since those big albums are the ones that get added to the most!
Just my two cents...
