    Clear scrapbook pages?

    I was going to compile a recent series into a scrapbook. I then realized that the 8.5x8.5 inch "clear" plastic the scrapbook pages were made out of was very milky and not clear at all. I never started and the project has been in a pile ever since.

    Is there such a thing as 8x8 scrapbook pages that are clear enough to put photos behind and actually see them?

    they have bookbinding supplies
    which include clear pages that you
    can cut into the size you need.
    they have holes in one side so you
    can post-bind them into a scrapbook.

    have fun!

    Yes they do. My wife is a scrapbook queen. She got me a nice leather book in 12x12 for my portfolio. I put it together the photos look better than expected. I don't care for the glossy finish of the pages, but for most viewers, the photos look good. The pages are completely clear. You may have gotten some sort of antiglare thing.

    I would look at a hobby store. Here in South Carolina there are several places to look. Hobby Lobby, AC Moore, Michael's, and a bunch of locally owned dedicated scrapbook shops. I am sure there are plenty of places around you. Even places like Wal-mart and Target have an OK selection.

    Good Luck

    My wife bought the scrapbook for me and I guess she got it at Target. It's ok for me to have clear plastic over the images if it is, in fact, clear. I have some clear sheet protectors I think I got at Staples, and I was collecting my pinhole negatives in them for quite some time, and I consider that plastic perfectly suitable. I guess I'll have to go forth and search some out.

    I picked up some scrapbook pages which were far clearer than the ones that came in the scrapbook. They were the most expensive ones there; I think the brand was Pioneer.
