Default How to store rubber unmounted stamps

I love Unity Stamps. They are red rubber and great quality.

However, I'm not sure how to store them. My clear stamps are in binders, and I can clearly see what each stamp looks like. It's different with the red ones and I can't really tell what they are sometimes.

Open to suggestions!

Thanks!

Mine are also in binders, and what I do is stamp the images from each sheet of stamps onto copy paper, then store this in front of it in page protectors.

My red rubber and clear are mixed up together in some places and I have an index card behind the laminated sheet where I store my stamps.

Shoot, a picture is worth a thousand words... You can see the rubber and the index sheets in their clear pouch in these two images.

CD cases, not slim line. I secure them in the case with double face tape.

I use a combination of the binder system and CD cases - larger cling stamps go in the binders (those are sorted by company) and smaller cling and bare rubber stamps go in CD cases, sorted by category. The majority of my collection is still overseas, but I'm just beginning to organize what I have here in the same way.

I ended up stamping the images on vellum and putting them in the binders where I keep my other stamps. A simple, easy solution for me. Thanks for all the input!
