So here's the deal. The English and French, in their own ever quirky manners, publish their magazines in a larger format. While most USA published stuff comes out in about 8.5 by 11 inch format, the Brits and Frenchies make theirs 8.75 by 11.75 or similar. That's cool cause the full page images are bigger...

It's not cool when the stack of magazines gets to be three feet high and you decide it's finally time to clear them out. In doing so, naturally, you rip out the images with the best poses, that lighting scheme you wanted to duplicate, or the cute chick with the great... hmmm... personality.

With the USA mags, you can easily find clear page protectors, slip them in a three ring binder, and your home free. But those page protectors are too small for the European mags. In checking, I've found no real solution. There are some scrapbook page protectors at 12 by 12. But they take a special scrapbook, and cost an arm and a leg.

So the question of the day is: Anybody got a good solution for making pages from European mags readily accessible? Are there such things as page protectors for the Euro size pages, and if so, where are they available? Any help appreciated...

And no, I won't just cut the pages down to fit the USA protectors!
Those... ahhhh... "personalities" are too fantastic to surgically reduce. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Hmmm... Sounds like you are looking for A4 size. Try searching for "A4 sheet protectors".

I found this with a quick google search.. http://www.cleansweepsupply.com/page...roup33513.html

Good luck,
Michael

I found these:

http://bcwsupplies.com/zoom.php?ln=e...&affid=adwords

They're archival bags (think comic book storage), but for "Life Magazine" size (11.125" x 15.125"). The site also sells backings, boxes, and top-loaders big enough for the Euro mags. If you really want a three-ring-binder type thing, though, the closest thing I could find for the best price are these pages...

http://www.iconusa2.com/online/Scrapbookpg10x13.htm (yes, it does say scrapbook, but the price is pretty good -- $7.16 / 25 sheets -- better than some 8.5" x 11" sheets per 25)

...and these binders:

http://www.iconusa2.com/online/ClassicOAlbums.htm ($9)

According to the site, the binders hold up to 75 pages. So, if you went that route, using the pages' front and back (two to a sheet), you could theoretically store 150 pages and be set back $30.48.

Does this help at all? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]

On second thought, Hawaii_Mike's find is cheaper. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] The stuff I found is archival, so it's gonna be a bit pricier. I'll hafta remember the IconUSA site for later, though. Decent prices for archival stuff.

Michael and others,

Thanks for the tip on the A4 size protectors. Their description is a bit confusing, but I assume the page protectors are 12 by 9 inches and accept up to about that size since they spacifically say European papers. The confusion is that they say they'll accept a 11.625 x 8.125 page as if that's the max page size.

The problem is a bit more complex than I originally stated. British Elle is 11.75 by 8.75 inches. British Vogue is 11.125 by 8.625. French Photo is 11.875 by 9 inches.

I guess I am a victim of metrication (or is it metrification) and cultural diversity. I am sure the Euro magazines are measured in CM rather than inches. And there must be crazies in those countries that tear pages out (It's more like precision surgical extraction using a VERY sharp cutting tool... Can you say scalpel kids?)

Thanks to all for the responses and leads.

And Marty, I said up front I wasn't going to cut pages down. I absolutely refuse to cleave the... ummm... cleavage. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img]

BTW, didja ever notice that CLEAVE is its own antonym. In one definition it's sticking together (His wife swore she would always cleave to him.) and in the next definition it's splitting or cutting up (The butcher prepared to cleave the carcass.) Ain't it a great language?

And remember the Beaver's family on Leave it to Beaver. The Cleavers. Sounds like it should be Leatherface's family name in Texas Chainsaw Massacre!
