Question Another organizing ? about different brands of stamps.

I have a ton of SU stamp sets (no need to tell the # based on the fact that even I might be shocked by my addiction)! Recently I started buying TAC stamps, they have such good deals, and since I'm addicted to stamping and a bargain, I have a nice but smaller collection of these stamps. My ? is do you store your different stamp brands together? I have my SU on several book cases, grouped into categories. The TAC stamps, could be added into those same categories, but I'm a little weird, so I leaning towards keeping them stored separately. I realize that as far as being able to choose and locate the stamp I want, combining the 2 brands would be best. What do you do with yours? I do have other single stamps from various companies, but I keep these separate because they are single stamps. By the way I am a hobby demo for SU, so using other stamps is not an issue. Thanks for any advice or tips.

I have some some clear containers for my other brands. I organize them by theme: birthday, holiday, etc. My friend bought a couple of small narrow white shelves from TJMaxx. She lines her non-SU stamps up on those. She can see the artwork easily that way.

Good Luck!

Dina, I imagine this could depend on how you use your stamps. If you sometimes make cards to sell, it might be easiest to keep them separate just so you remember that SU stamps have more restrictions than TAC stamps. Not that you can't sell cards made with Stampin' Up stamps, but there are more restrictions than with TAC stamps.

Otherwise, I don't see any reason not to store them together. Until I became a demonstrator for SU, all of my stamps were stored by type, not company. I used 11x13 acrylic box frames and labeled them. Flowers, bugs & animals, Asian/ethnic, occasions, etc. It really made it very easy to find what I wanted.

The only problem I had was when I went to sell off some retired SU sets, I had to scramble to find all the pieces to the sets! Not such a big deal, really, lol.

Anyway, decide how you stamp and then just go with what works for you.

I keep my single stamps in shoe box sized clear flip-top containers. They are organized by holidays, sayings/sentiments, and other at this point. I only have 3 boxes because I rarely buy single stamps anymore.

I keep all my unmounted together(in CD cases), all my acrylics together (in plastic snap envelopes) and all my wood mounts in categories. All in large plastic drawer organizers.

I keep my Stampin Up Stamps in one area,
Because they are bigger a bulker.

And I store all my other Wood mounted stamps from other companies on my peg wall.

And my TAC stamps I store in my CD cases in a Tower.
