Default Cheap Cardboard Ink Pad Storage...

I'm so exicted I"m gettin' all the ink pads and refills and I need a storage unit but I dont want to spend too much because I still live at home and when I move out in the near future I'll probably need something different. Any suggestions for cardboard ones.

Check out the Ink Palace from Motherrubber.com

Afforable and not bad looking.

Karen - do you have one of these? I'd really like to see a picture of one full of the new (and old) SU! pads. The photo on line is difficult because it's small.

Cat,
I don't. I was going to get it, but it does not work for the space I needed it in. I stamp in a closet and my desk is against the back wall and it would quite make it between my shelves.

I have seen pictures of it in use in the gallery and it sure looks good!

HTH

For now, I have two of those plain photo boxes you can get at michaels, etc for my craft ink and brilliance inks. I stand one box on end and can get two stacks of SU pads in the box. If you lay the box on it's side and you can get 3 shorter stacks -- but my space required me to stand the box on end.

A box on its side will hold 4 stacks of stazon/brilliance ink pads.

I have had one of the cardboard ones from the Inkpad Palace for a couple of years and really like it. The cardboard is very thick (my DH was even impressed when I received it) and durable. I don't have a way to submit a picture of it at the moment or I would.

I love my Ink Pad Palace and just ordered a second. Only 4 of the SU pads will fit on a shelf (2 stacks of 2 pads). But I love it. Very sturdy.

I store my ink pads the same way you do and I must say it works very well....AND saves money which I can use to buy more stamps and paper!

Great minds think alike

There is another company, that sells a cardboard ink holder. I can't remember the name of the company. I'll check my favorites. The one that I'm talking about holds one pad per shelf.

For those of you using a photo box, do you have to be careful about all the pads coming out when you go to take one from the bottom of the stack?

Yes, if the box is stood on end. But when I'm using the ink, i pull the box down onto my table and sit it at an angle, so it's no trouble at all.

FYI... because I didn't know this... When you buy a full set of classic pads the box they come in folds into a great storage box... it stores the pads on a very slight angle, but I stored mine in the boxes for months and saw no ill effects from them being on an angle. It's really quite a nice way to store your pads.

I store all my stampin up pads in the boxes that they came in and have the mother rubber cardboard boxes for my other pads. Works great and as a previous post stated, very heavy cardboard. Good quality for the price. I'm sorry I don't have a way to post a pic.

Bless you Anna! I have had a cheap CD box for most of my pads, but I just started aquiring craft pads and there was no more room for them! The photo box (I had TONS OF THEM!!!) fits perfectly on my desk and I use leftover scraps to make little rubber feet in the front so they tip ever so slightly and don't fall out when I remove one! Thank you thank you thank you for the GREAT idea!

Thanks Karen for the reply. I have space since I have an adjustable shelving unit. Organizing my ink pads is the very last thing I need in my stampin' storage space (I just posted pics last week in my gallery). I had a friend over one day this week to stamp, and we could never find a single color we needed as all my inks are stacked in a drawer of my iris carts.

The photo boxes are perfect! I just read this thread yesterday because my ink pads are all jumbled up in a drawer, but I can't afford SU's organizer. I got the boxes on sale at AC Moore for $1.50 each. Great suggestions, everyone!

Thank you Thank you for the photo box idea-that is awesome!!! I have a space for all my regular pads but am slowly but surely building up my craft and need a good spot for them-this rocks!
