DIY White Photo Albums
I like them
I use these to make a scrapbook for each child in my class for the school year. They love to decorate the covers and show everyone their pictures from the year.

I bought this as a graduation present for my class of pre-k students. The children enjoyed decorating the albums with fabric markers. There was no issue with appearances as described in other reviews. HOWEVER the binding did come apart from about half of the albums. This was an easy fix with crazy glue on my part, but wished it didn't have to be....
I would recommend these products again though. Good price for the product.

graduation Photo albums
We love these photo albums. This is the 3rd year in a row we have used them for our Preschool. Every year we take pictures of the students though out the year and put them all together in a photo book that they decorate the last week of school. The kids do not see the photos until the last week and are as thrilled as the parents. These books are a great value, hold loads of pictures and are easy to decorate with foamies and stickers. Do not let those old reviews scare you. We have never had a problem with them.

Exactly what I wanted
I read the previous reviews and of course was concerned about the mold and water damage. I ordered 7 dozen and was thrilled with them when they arrived. About 15 total had some minor discoloration, but I took a dry bristle brush to them and they cleaned up beautifully with just a few swipes of the brush.
A few had "bubbles" where it looked like the glue had not adhered, but didn't affect the final product. By the time the girls had decorated them, they all looked great. I would order these again anytime.

A co-teacher and I purchased these for parent gifts last year. We are going to purchase them again this year. We had no problem with discoloration or damage. The students had fun designing and decorating the cover. Parents loved them.

I ordered 2 dozen albums for an elementary school project. They arrived with obvious water damage. (Mildew, smell, water stains and grey sports on all albums.) I had to re-order twice. Even after being reassured that the order would have a note for packer to hand check for damage, all 6 packages had mold/mildew visible when they arrived. After ordering a total of 6 dozen I was finally able to get the 22 albums necessary for the project. (Price would have been fine IF the albums were not water damaged.)

Trust me...don't buy these!
I thought maybe I would get lucky and get some albums that weren't moldy but sure enough...they were all moldy...However OTC has outstanding customer service!

I purchased the albums last year and decided to place another order (2 dozen). The albums appeared to be ok, but after opening the packages over half of the albums had brown/mold spots on the cover. I would not recommend purchasing these albums.

Problem with discoloration fixed!
I ordered these photo albums despite the reviews listing the problems with discoloration. Our plans are to decorate the albums, fill them part way with photographs, and then give them to family members as Christmas presents so they can finish filling them. The albums are going to be perfect and the boys are very excited.

I read the reviews and thought maybe oriental trading had fixed the spotting issues as stated in the previous reviews however I received this item and yep, it was spotted a nasty brown color. I called customer service and they are sending me another bunch. Hopefully this one isn't spotted. I had a great response from customer service and when I receive the new bach and if it's spotted they will inspect the next bach of ablums personally before mailing it out to me. Good thing I have another month for my party. If other's are having this problem frequently OTC should not sell this product or OTC should make sure that when shipping this product there are no blemishes.
