Default Question regarding unmounted background stamps

All of my stamps are either photopolymer or unmounted rubber, including the large background stamps and the wheels. I currently have the background stamps stacked on top of each other in a clamshell case. When I've gone to stamping/scrapping expos, the vendors that had unmounted rubber sheets had them stacked, which is what made me think this would be okay. I'm wondering, though, if anyone out there has heard of or had any experience with stamps stored this way warping or distorting? Any/all thoughts welcome - thanks!

I would think as long as they are flat and laying even they should be fine.

I think stacking them only becomes problematic if they are woodmounted, because of the weight of the block OR, as the previous gal mentioned, they are not flat--rolled up, or a corner bent over, etc.

I haven't noticed any problems with my UM background stamps and I store them stacked flat atop each other--but the drawer is shallow, so I can only stack 'em about 4-5 deep.

HTH!

I stack mine just like you do in the clam shells and I haven't had any warp.

Thanks for the input, ladies! I guess I'll carry on with them in the clamshell cases - it's so convenient.

I have mine "sort of upright" because they're in a box, and I can flip through them quickly...I unmounted about 60 retired backgrounds and wanted to be able to flip through them and find the one I wanted quickly and because I did have an issure with
the images (when they were still on wood mounts) leaning in and leaving "dents" in the image until they had time to re-inflate. I think that won't happen without the wood-weight involved anymore. I saved so much room I did the same thing with all my retired wheels both regular and jumbo. I took all the adhesive off and keep 2 sided tape on my big block.
