Default A Great Idea for Displaying Card Samples

My husband and I brainstormed all day to find the perfect solution to neatly displaying my card samples, full cards and 6x6 scrapbook pages. We were in Michael's and found Ultra-Pro makes an 8.5x11 3 ring page protector with 2 5x7 pockets. These pages are acid-free and fit in a regular 3 ring binder. Michael's sells them in packages of 10 for $3.29 plus tax (8.25%) here in Los Angeles -- that is $.32 plus tax per page. I found online tonight that I can get 500 of them which after adding shipping breaks down to $.15 per page. Now, I cannot use 500 nor afford 500 pages right now. Is anyone out there interested in splitting this with me? I would place the order and the send them out to you via priority mail for $4 shipping. I would prefer to split in sets of 100 just to make it simple, so that would be $19 for 100 page protectors ($15 plus $4 shipping). Payment to me by paypal is preferred. If you are interested, please email me or post here. Once I have 4 people interested, I will place the order. I have a picture, but I cannot figure out how to get it up -- I can email it directly to you if you want to see it or try this link: http://gallery.bcentral.com/GID49989...500-count.aspx.

If anyone out there has a better or most cost effect solution for keeping and displaying cards, card fronts and 6x6 scrapbook pages, please post your suggestions.

I get "This page cannot be found" when I clicked on the link.
I think maybe the whole URL address isn't there?

There is a period at the end of the link that is the problem. try it here:

Default further description

There is a slight border on the left side of the page that is not depicted very well since the pocket is 7" wide.

I've ordered mine through Century Photo Products and they hold the 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 card fronts perfectly 4 to each side of the page and fit easily into a 3 ring binder. They're very durable too.

The product looks similar, but the 4 to a page size says 4x6. A standard card is 4.25 x 5.5 and some of my cards are larger. Their price for the same amount of pages (500) before shipping is $.32 per page. Without seeing them both side by side, I couldn't compare the weight/quality. Thanks for the suggestion.

Yes, it does say 4x6 but it fits card up to 4 3/4 x 6 1/2. But good luck with the others too.

Default thanks

I appreciate the suggestion. Don't know what is out there until someone points it out sometimes. Sure wish companies would label the true size some where on their product for things like this! I found that I have a number of cards larger than 4 3/4 x 6 1/2 too.

Default pockets are top loading

The pockets are top loading, so a 6x6 could be put in the bottom pockets with a little bit sticking up at the top -- for me it would be an short term solution for the few 6x6 samples I have until I have enough samples to break down and buy a 6x6 SU album for those samples.

Default still need two or three more people

I still need a minimum of two more people in order to purchase and split these page protectors. Anyone interested?
