Please click here to see the earlier thread on this subject.

I have received some very positive responses from WRMK as well as from Matt (the Customer Service Manager here at Two Peas) and Jamie Sorenson. I didn't get a "yes" response, but I definitely got a "we might consider it" one! Wouldn't it be great if these two awesome companies could form a joint partnership to offer these exclusive albums for us? (Specifically, I'm referring to WRMK producing 9x9 classic 3-ring albums with 20 single-pocket page protectors -- conversations with WRMK indicate this would be the most cost effective method of producing this custom-made item).

To help Two Peas make a decision of this magnitude (partnering with WRMK), we need to give management an indication of the interest for this exclusive album. Would you take a moment to let them know:

Question 1: Would you be interested in purchasing 9x9 3-ring albums with 20 single-pocket page protectors,

Question 2: How many albums would you be willing to pre-order from Two Peas, and

Question 3: What price would you be willing to pay for this particular album. [As a comparison: With only 10 page protectors included, the 8x8 albums retail for $19.99; the 8.5x11 albums retail for $22.99; and the 12x12 albums retail for $29.99).

If you are interested in Two Peas working with WRMK to see if they can produce for us a 9x9 album at a comparable cost to their other albums, would you please take a moment to answer these questions?

Having worked with this size album, I can attest to how versatile they are. To me, an 8x8 is a mini-album. But a 9x9 is more comparable to an 8.5x11.

Thank you for your interest in these albums as well. It would be so wonderful to have them available again. Those who have those 9x9 Heidi Swapp albums wouldn't have to hoard them anymore.

Shirley, thanks for taking this project on! Here are my responses:

Question 1: YES!

Question 2: 4-6

Question 3: I know the WRMK 8x8 albums retail for $19.99; however, I am able to get them for $13.99. I never pay retail. With that being said, I would be willing to pay $19.99 for them and hopefully get a decent price on shipping.

What color are we talking? I would think generic like black or brown would be good.

Question 1: Yes, I think that's a good amount of page protectors
Question 2: Unfortunately zero pre-orders - I'm essentially frozen until I graduate and start working in May. However, I would be very interested in purchasing them in the future, late spring or summer.
Question 3: $20-$25

Yes I would buy them
2 to 3 pre orders (maybe more)
$19.99 sounds like a good price point
The colors would be the ultimate decision .. I would love love love a white one, or black or Kraft! Maybe even mint green & pink! Or navy!

1) yes
2 & 3) depends on the price and the quality/materials---plain chipboard binder <$20 but possibly 4 of them, fabric covered & fancier could be game changer if I didn't like the style or price.

1)Yes!!
2)My scrap budget is really tight so I could only pre-order one, but I would definitely buy more if they stayed around.
3) around $20.00

Do you know if we could get page protectors seperate from the album?
AND
Is there any way that holes could be punched so that tey would fit in a 12x12 album?

I would personally prefer 10x10, since 9x9 is just so close to the already available 8x8 size. But I think it's terrific that WRMK and Two Peas are considering offering a new size!

Question 1: Yes, definitely!

Question 2: 2-3 to start, more in the future.

Question 3: Count me in as another person who waits for album sales, because my Michaels will put the 12" x 12" 3 ring albums at 40-50% off. So I'd probably pay 19.99, but not more than that.

**I do like Lynne's comment about the 10" x 10"s, I agree with her totally on that!

Q1: Yes, either 9x9 or 10x10.

Q2: 1 or 2 to begin with depending on colors and materials used. I love
the faux-leather WRMK covers.

Q3: I'd prefer a price of around $15, but definitely no more than $20.

Stampartiste, thanks for checking into this and asking 2Peas about carrying these. Maria

There really is a nice difference between the 8x8 and 9x9. That extra inch truly adds a lot. I would be afraid that a 10x10 would be too close to the awfully huge 12x12. Just my opinion though.

Same here - I am always searching out 9x9 albums and would love to have some more!

But I think I would pre-order 3-5.

I'd love 9x9 albums! I quit 12x12 scrapbooking because of its heft. I'd consider 10x10 too.

I'd buy 1 album to start and pay up to 25 depending on the quality of the material.

I would preorder at least 1. 20 page protectors sound good. I would expect to pay around 20-25.

Q1: Yes!

Q2: I would like 4-6, but it is all dependant on the price (albums, additional pages, and international shipping costs)... Colour is a factor - preferences are kraft, vanilla, charcoal, dark chocolate...

Q3: Album and 20 page protectors, $20-25... Additional sets of 25 page protectors, $7-9... I don't put all of my pages into albums, sort of rotate which ones go out for show in the albums, but I always store them in protectors... Might be the only one, but if the additional page protectors are 'too expensive' then that could change my mind...

Thanks for all the work and consideration going into this!
