I'm working on my first scrapbook ever, and bought a bound album without any plastic sheet protectors. Before gluing anything down, however, I'd like to have some slip-on sheet protectors to protect my photos in the future.
I've found these two to be most appealing:
Avery Quick-Loading Sheet Protector . This is an open-loading sheet protector which I could easily slip album pages into. This one is more economical, but I'm not sure if going with the open-loading would be ideal for an album. Any experience using these? Total cost: $36.31
C-Line Side-Loading Sheet Protector. This is a side-loading protector which also seems pretty easy to load into. I really like that this one is closed on all but the one side, but it's a bit more expensive. Total cost: $50.86
My biggest concern is that both come with binder holes, which I do not need. Would I be able to cut off the little side-tabs that have the binder holes and would they still fit correctly over my 21x21.7cm (11.7x8.3in) album pages?
Which do you think would be a better buy? I need 195 sheets xP

Oh hello, I saw your post on Scrapbook.com - I nearly posted that that wasn't ScrapJazz!
I have to admit, I agree with Gelidy on the other site, that if your album comes without the page protectors, it's good to keep it that way.
I don't know what kind of album you have, but if you really do want the photos protected, how about inserting the page protectors between the pages rather than covering them completely? Then the photos wouldn't touch those on the facing page but you would still be able to have interactive pages. How is your album bound?
Also having looked at those links, only the Avery ones specify that they are acid-free. The others look more like presentation sheets. They probably are not acid-free unless it says they are.
