Those corners look sharp. For those that use them, have they ever scratched your book
shelf or table top? I like the way they look, but wish they offered a version without the
metal corners. I don't think I'd want to lay them on my leather furniture for fear of
puncturing or scratching the leather.

I have one WRMK album and the metal corner did scratch my bookshelf. It's now in the "to be sold" box.

I needed one 3 ring binder for a class I was taking so I switched to an American Crafts binder, but used the WRMK page protectors (they are clearer).

This is another reason why I wasn't crazy about these binders. They scratched up my shelves almost every time I took them out or put them back in.

I did scratch my DR table when I slid an album over. I was pretty upset with myself! I am just careful now, because I really like the look of the metal corners. I store my albums in my Expedit and don't mind if I get a scratch on the shelf. I actually have NOT gotten any scratches on the Expedit, yet.

Edited - actually it WASN'T the metal corner that scratched my DR table, it was the metal bracket on the spine...I had the book open when I slid it out of the way.

Lynn, I hadn't even thought about the bracket being a problem.

The BH binders have metal corners as well and if mine get pushed all the way back on my Expedit then the metal corner gets hung up and I have to wiggle it up (they are on the top shelf and above my head height so that's hard!) to get it uncaught.

Went and checked mine out and sure enough the edge of the metal could scratch a surface. I have two that are in creation process and I will think of maybe using some linen or something under so that they don't. It is just me so odds are it wouldn't be a problem but accidents do happen in my world a lot.

I checked my shelf, and there are no scratches from the corners.

However, my desk, where I scrap, is scratched up from the metal bookplate on the spine. Oops. Luckily my desk is already a disaster from years of crafting on it.


But if I were to give it to someone to look at at a table, I'd slide a placemat under it or something.

I like the albums very much, so I'm just going to have to be extra careful with them. Thanks for pointing out the issue. I might not have noticed/thought of it on my own.

So far so good but I am always afraid I am going to do this as well but I love the colors of these albums. I actually need to pick up a few more.

I was worried and it has not been a problem AT ALL.
