I just switched from postbound albums to 3-ring...I love the ease of switching out pages, using divided page protectors, etc. But am I the only one who hates how far they stick out when sitting on a bookshelf? It bugs me!

use to bug me, but not anymore because i actually moved mine to the top of the shelves with beautiful book ends. i have some in the living room and some in my scrapbook room. i rarely house them inside the shelves because the sticking out bugged me too.

Is it because the covers are 'longer'?

I hate how they stick out too.

But Expedit shelving from Ikea is deep enough for them not to stick out. (if you can get those shelves).

It doesn't bother me. My CTMH postbound and CM strap hinge albums also hang over the edge of the bookshelf. But the American Crafts albums definitely stick out about 3 inches more than the others.

I place all my American Craft 3-ring albums on the bottom shelves. Somehow, that keeps it from bugging me (and I'm so anal about stuff that I have ALL black spines...heck, maybe that helps them seem more like one piece too and doesn't draw my eye to them).

Also true for the Besta shelves. I have those, and my WRMK albums don't hang off the edge.

I store my completed albums on a lower shelf of one of the Pottery Barn Studio Wall Shelves in my designated craftroom. The shelf is deeper than the American Craft cloth albums, so no overhang!

Mine are on an Expedit book case and don't stick out.
They also don't stick out my entertainment center.

It doesn't bother me too much but I also grabbed a bookshelf where they don't stick out.

and like meowgal I use all black binders so they aren't distracting!
