Question How many unmounted sets do you have?

Right now I have 2 double alphabets, 3 sets of numbers and I just mounted 5 sets. I know I'm not alone because I see so many unmounted sets for sale on ebay. I have a huge order on the way so I thought I'd better finish what I have. I really hate doing the alphas. One thing I have found is that when a set is older the backing sticker is harder to peel off. So please tell me how many sets you need to mount. Make me feel better! LOL!

I have been all caught up on mounting sets but I just had a book party and now have 9 sets to mount, UGH! It is not my favorite thing to do but I might want to use them for VSN next week so I better get to it!

None - I always make sure to mount all my sets as soon as I get them for a couple of reasons.
1 - I've noticed too that over time the paper backing on the foam will get hard and stick to it so much that when I try yo peel it off all the adhesive comes w/ it!
2 - By mounting them right away I'm able to check that I got all the right stamps and there are no damaged/missing pieces of rubber. Ever since a person posted that they bought a set, went to mount it a few months later and found that she was sent the wrong images in the case (and SU couldn't do anything about it b/c the set had retired!) I ALWAYS mount all my sets right away!

Two right now, but at least 6 on the way. They probably won't get done for quite a while.

One and a half, but I just got them on Friday. I tend to mount them as soon as I get them. I like to have them ready to use when I want them.

I'm in shock just from reading the title I mount my sets the same day I get them! I just can't wait to get them inky! I think the most I've had at one time is six, including one of them being an alpha set.

About 12 - I really prefer mounted stamps! I only buy unmounted when the set is just too cute to pass up! TAC has really nice stamp designs.

I have 9 right now. UGH! I have been SO busy. I normally mount them the same day I get them so I am feeling like a major slacker. I have 2 SAB sets, newsprint double alpha YUCK, expresive phrases DOUBLE YUCK, collage alpha, letterpress alpha and another alpha to mount. LOL There are a few easy ones to mount too, maybe I'll do those today.

Only 1 - I've had it for MONTHS - maybe even a year. HAD to have it, but then kinda lost my love of it. So, I may never mount it

I also mount all of my stamps the day I get them. One of my friends mounts the stamps as she uses them, so in any one set, she could have 3-4 mounted but the rest unmounted. That sort of thing drives me nuts!! I want to go over to her house and mount them all while she sleeps. (I'm crazy, I know).

None!!! But that is because I went to a stamping party Friday night. My rule for myself is I can't buy more stamps if I haven't mounted what I already have.

My rule hasn't saved me any money, but the mounting is done!

No unmounted sets here! I mount and STAMP mine right away! It's a good thing too, because when I got my Let's Party set there was a flaw in the rubber. I was able to contact my demo and get a new rubber piece sent to me free of charge! I didn't even have to pay shipping! Here's the flaw I found.

Pretty bad flaw. You're right....it's important to mount stamps and try things immediately in case of problems. I need to remember that.

It used to be I mounted them straight away, then I ended up mounting the stamps I was using and left the rest. Time has been short for a couple of years so I do what I can. I do make the effort to mount a set if I know I'll be less likely to use it because it isn't mounted (i.e., expressive flexible phrases)

I just counted a little over 2/3 of my stamps and I have 43 to mount. Keep in mind I just got 21 sets 2 weeks ago. I probably have about another 15 to be mounted in addition to what I counted. I have 287+ sets.

Guess I should spend less time here.

I may have to adopt this rule! NOT!!

Dina, I chuckled when I read the topic of this thread! There doesn't seem to be much here to make you feel better so let me say -- I stopped counting at 25 unmounted sets! Yep, no doubt about it -- I'm a collector more than a stamper at the present time. But I have such lovely stamped scrapbook pages in my head! And, as a hobby demo, there's no rush 'til I need. However, it does stunt my creativity to have an idea but not have the stamps mounted.

For those caveats about mounting quickly, I agree the backing turns extra sticky over time, I do mount sets in full (when I get around to it -- I also seal my wood blocks, which delays the process, too), and, most importantly, I check all rubber upon receipt.

Hope you can breathe easier now knowing there's someone else drowning in unmounted sets!

I'd better go count the rest of mine! And I agree that less computer time might help the backlog!

Yikes. Maybe you need to have your friends over for a pizza and mounting stamps party.

Let's see I normally mount my sets as soon as they get here, but I think after this S.A.B. and the 17 sets that I am ordering I don't think I will do them all right away.

Yikes, I'm in a bad place because I got multiples of SAB sets. I'm not sure if i'm going to keep them, trade them or break them up and use them as door prizes. But currently I have 7 sets. Plus I just ordered 4 stamp sets for myself I haven't had the chance to mount them yet. Eeek! I better get on that.
