I store my QSL cards in 3 ring binder photo albums that hold three 4x6 cards horizontally on one page. I used to use two types - one that has a white backing in each plastic pocket for cards with writing on only one side and album pockets that are clear so that you can read both sides of the card when it is in the album. I have almost used up my stock of albums which I bought about 15 years ago. I was searching on the web and found the major maufacturers of albums such as Pioneer and Vanguard but I was unable to find a 3 ring binder type with three horizontal 4x6 cards in a clear pocket.

I notice that the clear sleeves in my last album were made by Kleer-Vu Plastics, Brownsville TN but I am not sure if they are stil in businees.

I was wondering if anyone had seen the type of album that I am looking for. The binders are taller than the conventional 3 ring binder and are about 13 1/4 inches high.

I just go down to Walmart, Kmart, the drugstore, etc.  They always have albums and fillers in this style.

Just pull out the white backing card for those you want to be able to view from both sides.  It's loose in there anyway.

Thanks Guys, I will take a look around.

The albums that I own have the backing material moulded into the pockets and don't come out. In fact the pockets are welded to the backing material.

Clear File makes similar pages, but theirs are 13-1/2 inches tall.

Thank you - they look like they might do a great job especially on those oversize cards that I receive every so often.

Have you tried the folders?

Yes, I bought some inexpensive albums and pages about six or seven years ago and got a Clear File catalog for my records.  Back then, I preferred buying pages that held 4 cards in a portrait format, rather than three landscape format cards.

OK I will look at the portrait format. I guess that the advantage there is getting more cards per page.


Thank you for the link to clearfile. I did quite a lot of web searching but I didn't find that one

I only use the big Clear File pages for photos.

For QSL cards, I use Light Impression postcard pages, along with ordinary 4x6 photo pages for larger cards.

I only have about 200 cards stored in pages.
