I have a Crop in Style bag with drawers. I bought a bunch of the extra drawers and have them labeled so I can find my individual stamps pretty easy.

Here are the drawers:

BTW.....they come in a set of 2 and you can stack them as high as you want. I have 5 stacks of 6 that fit perfectly on a wood shelf unit.

Hi, Suzanne!

Well, I have an unusual system . . . And, to be frank, the system is definitely in need of an overhaul. LOL!

I tend to keep my stamps grouped by manufacturer*, depending on how large the collection is, and then divided by theme:

Sentiments/greetings
Backgrounds/borders/frames
Barden/nature
Floral
Food
Girl Stuff
Guy Stuff
People
Places
Christmas
Winter
Halloween
Fall
Spring
Summer
Baby/Kids
Animals
Party/Celebration
Bridal


HTH!

*Due to my work as a free-lance designer, I need to be very conscientious in annotating the sources, with regards to respective manufacturers whose images I use in my designs.

Oh, to the op, I have a small collection of individual stamps. Right now I store them in extra SU clamshell cases. Not the most organized, but at least they're all together.

I consider my rubber stamp collection the best therapy I have for my memory!! Last time I counted, I had over 3000 individual stamps-not counting any SU or any unmounteds. I have three large wooden shelving units on the wall. Kinda like printers boxes, but my FIL built them, so they are deeper. Between the three of these, they hold about 500 stamps--I like to rotate these, because they are the most out in the open. My favorites are there!! Everything else is stored in a collection of antique thread drawers, cash register stands and wooden mechanics chests (including my dad's).

My stamps are organized by themes (words, babies, flowers, snowmen, collage style . . .). When a friend calls and says "do you have a _______ rubberstamp," 99% of the time, I can walk right to the drawer and pull it out!!

Trust me, in many other areas of my life, my memory doesn't work this well--so I definitely consider this "therapy."

I have these little plastic drawer units I bought, which sit on shelves in my studio, and inside a "pie safe" but, the drawers themselves don't hold enough and I need shallower drawers, that would be better suited to the stamps--about 1" deep or so. I'm thinking I need to convert the plastic drawers to embellishment storage.

I'm still debating how best to resolve it so that the images I use most frequently are the most easily accessible . . .

No. Because the work I do is either contracted out specifically by the manufacturer, or submitted for publication, the Angel stamp is unnecessary; in the case of publication, all copyrighted materials used are annotated in the credits.

If I were directly selling my finished creations themselves, however, the copyright notice for all images used would be included on the back of each creation.

Since I was a stamper for several years before signing up to be a demo for SU, I have a HUGE collection of stamps, lol! I've always used the large (11x14) acrylic box frames to house them. I flip them upside down so the boxes are like trays and they are just the right height for stamps (for the most part anyway).

Some stamps I can find easier if I associate them with the manufacturer, so I store them that way. Mostly I separate them into categories similar to what's been mentioned above. Even my SU sets (pre-demo days) were separated and stored this way.

These trays stack on top of each other well, or can be rigged so they can be stored likes books on a shelf. Just make sure the shelves are REALLY well-mounted, lol!

Not sure. Not much in the way of places to look for them where I live. I got mine online from that store.

I use the leftover plastic cases from my background stamps to store the lion's share of individual stamps. I organize them by holiday, sentiment, subject (I have a masculine, girly, floral, holiday, wedding, baby, etc). All of my stamp cases have a label on the outside of the box, as do my individual stamps. For those I just label them "misc religious sentiments" or "purse & shoe sentiments" or whatever.

My brother just made me this hanging wall unit that I store other stamps on - but right now I have it sitting on my desk area because we have an unfinished basement and I can't hang it up due b/c I can't drill into cement blocks.

I store mine by manufacturer. For now, I have empty SU stamp boxes and I put all Gina k in one (actually several), all A Muse are in one, etc. It seems to work ok for now, I have one store in style that is for Non-SU stuff.

I store mine in the SU plastic cases, upright like books with the name of the set printed with black marked in big letters on a piece of paper and taped to the spine so that I can easily read the set. I also have them colour coded so I know which ones are Retired, Christmas, Easter etc. The non SU are also stored in SU boxes by theme but those are in a different area so they won't get mixed up with the SU ones. We used the closet in my craft room and put three shelves across it so that is very convenient and also it is wide enough that I can put two rows of stamps across the shelves and still see the spines easily.

I have plastic shoe-size boxes for individual stamps. I have made my own 'catalogue'. I find this very helpful as anyone can look through my catalogue to find what they need (I use a simple numbering system). Browsing my catalogue allows me to put different stamps together in my head while keeping me 'current' with what I have. This in turn helps me see I have lots of cool stamps so I don't feel the 'NEED' to buy so many.

I actually have a ton of SU stamps but I typically organize my stamps by "catagories" as many have listed above. Most of my "subjects" are stored in plastic containers that sit on the shelf and are labeled with the subject.

However, I LOVE the containers from:

http://www.stampandgo.com/cartSTORAGESYSTEMS.html

I have the stamp and go container which is great for traveling BUT I bought extra of the "drawers" as they are perfect for my misc. word/saying stamps. I have these stacked 4 high and 2 wide on my shelves and they work great for the sayings as they sit flat and you can see them easy.

I love this room! I emailed Cathy recently to ask her how she remembers what she has.

I have tried using the 3 drawer sterilite things, but found I don't like them stacked 2 deep in the drawers. I have got to figure out a good storage system soon so that I can get organized enough to start feeling creative.

I even started going unmounted and while I don't have a problem with unmounted I feel like I'm limiting myself by just buying unmounted stamps. I want to be able to buy wood mounted or unmounted and know that I have a place to store either one and be able to get to it easily.

I know a lot of people are putting the narrow shelves up & just sitting their stamps on them, but for me personally I don't like this option because I don't want to have to dust all those stamps & shelves.

I want to find something that is contained so it stays dust free, and that I can sort by catagories. I'm thinking some kind of drawers so that I can just open the drawer and get what I want & then just drop it back in.

Thanks everyone!

I can't imagine having stamps or paper out where it can get dusty, either. That's why I have everything in boxes!

I do the same as MSBestsyZ for most of my single stamps. These acrylic frames are great stacked on top of one another. I made labels for the sides of the frames and separated them into these categories:

Flowers
Trees/Foliage
Insects and Animals
Backgrounds
Words
Borders

I have some other "miscellaneous stamps" that go off by themselves.

I keep my organized by manufacturer in clear-faced drawer units. I find that they hold just the right amount of stuff to keep me from having to dig too deep for things. Having clear fronts I quickly know which drawer to go to for whatever it is I'm looking for.

I don't have nearly as many as some, only about 2200 but I have most of my wood mounted ones on shelves all around my room divided by category. The unmounteds are in a huge drawer (about 100 CD cases) and any SU stamps that haven't been disembowled to the shelves are in another deep drawer. I have a stamped image of the the unmounteds in a notebook by category with a case number by the image for easy location.

I get my inspiration by looking at the images, that is why I keep them out. I'm in a downstairs room and don't find that they get all that dusty.

Hey! I've had 20 years to collect them! That's only 100 or so a year! I started using old printer trays to display them but that was when smalle stamps were the standard!

I use the SU plastic supply boxes for my individual stamps. I started collecting SU first, so I guess I was just use to that method. Then they are organized by season. I've also read that small pizza boxes (unused) work well.

I totally missed this thread when it was first posted - seeing my name caught my eye!!!

As of right now I have *some* of my loose stamps in shallow sterilite drawers - but I'm outgrowing those (they're FULL!!) so I've started putting them in extra clear SU! cases - but I don't like them that way.

I so would LOVE to get the ones from here: http://www.bestscrapbookshelf.com/ that parrothead mentioned above - I've been drooling over them for MONTHS now - but it will be a LONG time before I can afford them (to me they're the perfect solution - but at a high price!)

When I have more time (and it's not so late!!) I'll go through this whole thread and see what everyone else is doin'!!

I missed it too! So sorry!

A while ago, a local stamping store went out of business. I purchased one of their stamp displays and I group my stamps by season on the shelves so I can see them. For my unmounted stamps, I store them in CD cases and I stamp each image on a piece of cardstock that lays on top so I can easily view them. Then, I label the side for example, it might say: TAC- leaves- meaning The Angel Company set of leaves.

For assorted umounted, I would use CD cases and just put on the side Christmas stamps. I would write on the back with a sharpie who the company is so if I submit a card or use the stamp on my DVDs, I know who to properly credit.

Those shelves were one of my best investments an I got them for only $60.00each! Each one holds a at least 200 stamps.

I don't use an copyright stamp on the back but I do always credit the company when I submit or use them on camera. I don't really sell cards so I wouldn't be the right one to ask about that but I would assume that those who make cards with my stamps and sell them are giving my company credit. People usually ask my permission first but I always say yes! LOL! We are and angel company too.

I hope that helps!

That's a lot o' rubbah, eh?!

She complained tho, that occasionally she bought duplicates without realizing she already had it . . . That part made me LOL. Can you imagine, if she does have them catalogued, how THICK and heavy that alone must be???

I have everything in boxes or drawers, as mentioned above. I also photo copy the sticker sheets and put them in my personal catalogue. I use a simple numbering system and will begin color coding the retired sets soon. This way, I sit and 'shop' in my easy chair before stamping and customers can look through to choose what they want to use.
