Great storage system! 

I was going to unmount all of mine and do something similar b/c of lack of space, but my husband just about had a coronary.  He vowed to find me a better solution than unmounting them.
These were never mounted. Cheesy

I've heard that you can take those plastic box photo frames, and put your mounted stamps in them. Maybe you could then make a rack for them so they slide out like drawers? Cheesy

Orrr you could buy one of those clear shower curtain that has pockets, they're pretty big. Hang it in a closet or on the back of a door  Huh

Had to come back cuz the light bulb went off when I hit send.  A shoe holding curtain would work too. Geez, sometimes I just brilliant.  Grin


i found a smaller version of a shoe holding curtain at a dollar store. it hangs from a hanger, and has smaller pockets than the shoe ones. i use it for holding tights and nylons, i assume that's what it's intended for, but it would work great for mounted stamps too! since the pockets are smaller, the stamps would probably come in and out easier!

Oh, those are good ideas!  Right now they're all in a crappy rolly cart and stacked in the drawers.

I use Aleene's Tack It Over & Over glue on my unmounted rubber stamps. I apply the glue with a foam brush. It dries yet remains tacky so it will stick to an acrylic block (I have 3 different sizes that I use) and it is easily removed. Then when I'm not using them I stick them in a binder of sheet protetectors. They just stick right on the plastic.

Great tip!
The clingy foam mount stuff works great. I just got some in the mail today. You need to clean the sticky bits off your scissors a lot as you trim, but it provides a nice cushion and the stamps stick to the acrylic blocks very nicely.

I'm glad to hear the clingy foam works well. I ordered some this weekend.  Smiley

Does it feel sticky on both sides or just one?

It's adhesive on one side, and like saran wrap on the other.

I think that might just be the foam mount. I think you can get the clingy sheet separately.
