Now that VHS tapes are sort of goin the way of the 8 track you can get clear plastic boxes (with or without the hubs) that work well for marker and embellishment storage. Might work for unmounted stamps also if they are too big for the cd cases. Ah, technology, thy name is *change*, leaving all kinds of possibilities to use for other purposes. Remember the big 5 1/4 floppy disks for the old woodburning computers? Plastic holders for those make great small scrap storage. I am nerveously considering going unmounted, but haven't done so yet!

Oh I agree with the grafix cling if you're using it when you unmount already wood-mounted stamps. EZ Mount is much better! But, I just received new stamps last week...left the stamp on the foam and "mounted" the stamp on the grafix cling and it worked much better for me.

If you have a set that's too big to fit into a CD case - DVD cases work.

Where do you find DVD cases that don't have the hub in the middle?

Staples has their Standard CD Jewel Cases on sale (by phone or on-line only) until March 3rd for $6.99 for a 24 pack. The item number is 390178-T8. In order to get the sale price, you need to click on “Order by Item Number” in the top header of the website and then type in the item number and quanity. This is the only way the sale price shows up. HTH

I get my CD cases from Staples.com - I buy in bulk when I have coupons for Staples. (Also, when you return your used cartridges- you get $3 coupons that you can use online. Item # 390178 and they are $8.98 for a pack of 24. By the time I use coupons, I’m not spending much money at all)

As for labeling – I have a label maker that I use on the spine of the CD case, and for the inside, I put all the stamps of the set onto the acrylic that is the SAME SIZE as the CD insert (which I just cut out of white cardstock) and stamp with black ink. Super fast, super easy.

Storing my CD cases – I use a CD rack that I can actually flip through, and see the images on the index I create. I don’t like just seeing the names of the sets (like if you put them in a slotted CD tower), I really need to see images.

My favorite thing about un-mounted stamps is the alphabet stamp sets. You can stamp something like “Happy Birthday” by lining up the letters on the acrylic and just stamping once – such a time saver!

I get 10 standard jewel CD cases at K-Mart for $2.29. I have not found any place to beat that price.

I haven't read the whole thread, so if this has been mentioned somewhere, I'm sorry. When you take the rubber off the wood, do you take the foam and the rubber or just the rubber ? Thanks!

I take the thin rubber image off of everything and stick that onto the sticky side of EZ mount/Creative Cling. I discard the foam and the wood block. (Although some people find good uses for it)

You can do either, depending on what method you want to use to adhere it to the block afterwards. I really recommend reading this thread- its filled with great information!

I have been UM the M $ stamps by peeling the rubber and foam cushion off the block. (put in micro for 10-15 sec, wood will be hot) I peel the sticker off the block and put it on the cushion for an index. then I just use double stick tape to temporarily adhere to the block.

For some reason my Michaels $1 stamps have been peeling off the wood block very easily without microwaving them. But these are new ones, so I think maybe the glue hasn't set up enough to make it stick as much as some of the others.

Tiffany
Foam works to equalize pressure across the stamp, which is why it becomes more imperative the larger the stamp. On smaller stamps it's not necessary because there is less surface area across which pressure needs to be equalized. Same with wheels, the area that is in contact with the paper at any given time is very small, thus acting like a small stamp.

I haven't seen this question, so I apologize in advance if it's a repeat.

Has anyone else had a hard time w/the hostess sets? The purple rubbah does not come off the foam easily. Is it just me?? I have "What Could Be Better Than" off the block but still stuck to the foam, waiting to see what y'all think.

TIA....

I have not yet tried to unmount a hostess set but I do recall seeing a thread where someone did mention that the hostess sets actedslightly different. I can't remember if it was the way in which the ink clung to the rubber of it was what you mentioned.

I transfered all my & my husbands cd's to binders for space and used the cases for my unmounted stamps. Luckily haven't had to buy any cases yet because of that. I still have about 30 sets to do but I work on it as I can afford cling. I do prefer the TAC cling. My DM uses the binder system from TAC and eventually I may go to that. I really like it

The unmounted stamps that I have had for over a year and are not in cd cases tend to have the same problem. The cling winds up sliding from being bumped against each other and what not. I finally laid them in a su plastic case to hopefully avoid ruining anymore cling.

I haven't found DVD cases lately without the hub. I have used VHS cases. I'll look for a website for you.

Thanks for the site for ordering VHS cases. I've been thinking DVD only but these VHS cases are exactly what I've been looking for....

Happy stamping and scrapping.

I see that most of you use the CD storage system for your stamps once they're mounted on EZ Mount. I just purchased a bunch of EZ Mount and 2 large binders. Have any of you use binders and what do you think about that type of storage?

Thanks,
Linda

I use a binder system and am slowly thinking about going back to cd cases. I LOVE the binder system in the fact I just flip the pages and I can see all the stamps directly across from the matching index page. BUT I have had problems with the rubber sliding down the foam. I now store my binders flat vs. on end. It seems to be helping that whole slide problem, but I just started storage this way and am not 100% sure its fixed the problem. I certainly hope so, though, as I love my binders.

I tried the binder system and my stamps did not stick very well. I needed too many binders and the binders were too heavy. With wrist problems, I just also found the CD system much easier to manage and grab a couple sets and off I go. I also feel the CD system in my bookcase is much easier to organize and to access.

Smile I took the plunge too...

I purchased the NEW ez mount today. The web site said it would not be available until April. However, when I called they said since I am ordering 5 sheets they would be able to ship it today. I have so many wood stamp sets from SU! I love them. They just take up too much space! It is not practical. When you combine that with paper--You all know what I mean.

I have fit up to 5 SU sets in one case (with insert and maybe will be able to say more once I get to the mini-size stamp sets! I use the front and back of the case with an insert. The insert is the binder storage sheet cut to fit inside the case. I get three inserts per binder storage sheet and only place stamps on one side of the insert.

I've been on the fence about unmounting my SU sets for quite awhile. I've bought unmounted stamps from many other companies and was already used to stamping that way. Have a variety of acrylic blocks, too. I kept thinking that if I wanted to sell an old set on ebay, they should be on the wood blocks to get the best price. Someone mentioned earlier in this thread that some people ask to have them unmounted to save on shipping. If this becomes a popular trend then I don't need to worry. Then again, I don't know if I can ever part with a stamp set.... soon as I do, sure enough I'll probably find it would have been useful for some project.

What's put me over the edge, is lack of space. So, I started by just putting new sets I ordered on the ez mount foam. When they are new, the rubber peels off easily from the foam they come on. I then use the waxy paper from the EZ mount to put on the sticky regular foam and stick that back in the SU case with the wood blocks. I will store these away if I ever need to sell them as wood mounts. At least they won't be taking up space in the ready to use drawer. Geez, I'm as bad as our pet hamster, hoarding.

I had this crazy idea of nailing the wood blocks randomly to a wall and make it a 'practice rock climbing wall'.

After doing just a few sets, I'm taking the plunge and attacking my older sets. I looked at three medium size sets in CD cases stacked next to one medium size SU stamp case - they were even. That means one third the storage space! Girls, you have created a whirlwind of excitement and activity in my stamp world. In the name of getting the Both Way Blossoms set in the cd case I cut them in half! That's right, 'sacrilege' some of you might say, but I wouldn't use them the way they came in one long piece anyway.

Ok, who wants to start a letter writing campaign to convince SU to offer stamps unmounted or on cling foam! Think of all the trees that could be saved. Save on shipping cost.

Ok, gotta get back to peeling and snipping....

I think that someone brought this up earlier and some of us Emailed SU and asked them to consider selling unmounted sets -- and we got a generic "we'll look into your suggestion" form letter.

I think I will be taking the plunge myself...I had traded someone for the Daisy set SU sells about four months ago and it was unmounted. I was SO confused..where did the blocks go? Why were they not sticky? What do I do with these stamps?..after reading all of these threads I went out and ordered some EZ mount foam and one block to use and it came today! I instantly got out my Daisy set to try it out.

I LOVE it...I will be placing an order for more EZ mount foam and blocks to use as well. I can't wait till everything is all done and I have more room! I need the room, don't we all

Hi Cathy, so are you all unmounted? I'm wondering if I should leave the stamps mounted that I plan to use for the shoebox project at Stampmania.

It seems to be gaining in popularity, TAC and CMTH do it, and more in the stores. I've always bought unmounted online because they are half the cost and less to ship. SU is probably dragging their feet and staying traditional, but there's always hope they will 'go green' and save some trees (goodness knows, enough are sacrificed to make all the pretty papers we use).

Here is where I got my DVD cases. They have a hub but it is removeable. Also, they are a lot more expensive than the CD cases but I wanted to be able to store my alphabet and larger sets together in one case. They also fit the longer sets like Both Way Blossoms.

It's the Super Jewel Box DVD case.

Hope this helps.

As for your wooden blocks and foam... try selling them on ebay. I have seen them selling there before. Can't remember what they were going for but I'm sure you can do a random search. That is, if you completely want to get rid of your wooden blocks.

If you look in my gallery at the picture showing how I store my CDs, in front of the crates I have one of the larger TAC or SU storage boxes (it's under the red ATG gun). I store all of my unmounted wheels and the stitches set from the TAC Fall Supplement in this container. I think I have maybe ten wheels plus the stitches set store in the one container.

Now I've been reading all this about unmounting your stamps. I just love the idea but do I dare unmounting mine?
I HATE it when I have to go somewhere with my stamps - they take up much space and they WEIGH like a ton!

I have a lot of stamps from Stampers Anonymous, Hero Arts, Penny Black etc. - do you only unmount your SU stamps or do you do ALL your stamps???

I really see the point in unmounting them but I don't know if I'll regret it later..
