Default Clear Mount Sheets

Would someone happen to know if the Stamp n Store Storage Panels at Joanns are sturdy ones? Would another brand that you use be sturdier than the ones at Joanns? What about the Stampers Best Cling Stamp storage cards? Are they sturdy and sturdier than the ones at Joanns? Thanks for the input.

Sorry I don't know about those you listed, ( I'm in the UK), but, if you have, or have access to, a laminator, you can easily make your own storage sheets-I mostly leave mine clear just by running the laminating sheet through as is, or you can laminate copy paper, or thin card, so you can make them as sturdy as you want.Its also cost effective, you can get a laminator on Amazon for $17, and laminating sheets from places like Staples, and probably even your dollar stores.( This idea came up in another couple of threads recently). It depends how many you need of course, as to how cost effective it is.

I don't know how sturdy the ones at Joanns are, but I do have both the laminated and clear panels from Stampers Best. The laminated sheets are very study but not rigid. The clear panels are rigid. That said, even the laminated ones stand up just fine in a bin when I put stamps on them and slip the panel into a page protector. I would recommend them.

You can of course make your own if you get a laminator and the pouches and some paper. I have been too lazy to set that up so far. Just bought what I needed. My stamp collection is still pretty small so not a huge investment to buy the panels.
