Gaylynn’s Storage Tip
Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Hello, Gaylynn here with one way to store clear or rubber stamps. There are many ways to do so, including plastic bins. This post primarily focuses on thin stamp storage containers for a clean and organized look.

This photo shows how easily these containers fit on shelves and how compact they are. I chose to stack them sideways, but they work upright also, depending on your space. Some people use them with magazine holders or book ends also.

This is what I use to store some of my stamps. Each container is capable of holding an 8 1/2 x 11-inch sheet of stamps or multiple smaller sized kits, either cling stamps or clear stamps.

I include an inside pocket made with an acid-free and archival-safe sheet protector, 8 1/2 x 11 inches in size. To do this, I trim off the edge with the holes, leaving a pocket. On the inside of the trimmed sheet protector, I place the photo of the stamp set(s). I remove the stamp backing, if there is one. I place all of the stamp backing pieces inside the pocket, behind the stamp photo sheet. (I keep them for masking projects.) Then, I stick the stamps onto the opposite side of the sheet protector, etched side face up.

Here is the front side of two finished stamp storage containers. On the left is with rubber cling stamps and their saved backing pieces. On the right is with clear stamps and their corresponding metal dies.

This is the back side of the finished storage containers in the previous photo.

Containers like these can be found online. I’ve included a few links below where you may find the storage containers and the sheet protectors. Different sizes are available in some stores.

I would love to hear your thoughts or suggestions for other storage ideas.

Have a wonderful day.

    I use the clear pocket photo pages. I then can keep them in a binder and add more sleeves.

  2. Great idea! I’ll be shopping for those containers.

    THANKS! Love the idea. Will definitely help with my storage problems.

    Thank you for a great storage idea, can you also simply stick the stamps to the storage container? Does the paper storage sleeve not fall down in the container or is the container think enough to hold it in place?

      Debbie, some stick the stamps onto the container itself. The thin container holds the sleeve in place. You can also add a thick piece of cardstock inside the sleeve, for reinforcement.
