Albums never come cheap for good reason! Beautiful albums cost a fair amount wherever they are made - but add freight charges & duty & so it goes on - the bigger & heavier the items the more they end up costing us. Then getting them out to you in sturdy, large boxes doesn't come free either. We send all our large albums out in the most gorgeous of white boxes with flip open lids (like a deep pizza box) - these boxes will serve you well as scrapbooking storage so that's a wonderful bonus! We source the best possible albums at the lowest possible cost & only stock D ring ones for their ease of use. Protect your lovely pages by getting them straight into albums so you, your family & friends can enjoy them & you can show them off! We stock good quality page protectors as well as smaller albums - great for documenting special occasions & holidays, plus Traveller's notebooks for those who prefer a smaller format & are on the move.
