No, didn't get slipcases. I'd rather spend the money on stamps.

Slipcases may seem like an extravagance, but they help to keep the binders in shape, as well as keeping out the dust (and my house seems to generate inordinate amounts of dust!)

Remember that replacing pages in an enormous Minkus binder is very different from replacing pages in a much smaller binder - far fewer pages to remove, and so on. In my Scott Internationals which also have the same rod and post system, I can replace a page in less than a minute every single time. It's just a matter of keeping the pages I've removed in a nice neat stack, and if some pages move a little, I just put my stamp tongs in the holes and gently line them up again. Easy as pie.

If you like the Scott Universals better than I did, then your problem is solved. Not cheap, though, are they? Keep them "new" in case you decide to return them.

As for loose-leaf binders, I again suggest browsing Amazon. Search photo album binders or "Leather ring binders" to eliminate the junky ones. Here's a pretty nice one that doesn't look at all like an office supply store binder. I know it's used by some collectors for stamp albums:

It's called the "Executive Binder, English Leather 2 Tone with Stitching and Ribbed Spine, Heavy Duty 1" Inch 3 D-Ring with Buster, Holds 225 8.5"x 11" Sheets Black" and costs about $21. And there are others, as well..

And these by We R Memory Keepers which collectors sometime use. Also on Amazon. They're really good looking like the other ones. About $20 or so.

Also Lighthouse sells three-ring binders that are fairly elegant looking. Sold on eBay. Not quite as cheap as these other two, though.
