Default Storing Ink Pads

Is it OK to store stamp pads vertically, on their sides, so that the color label faces up? Or should they really stay horizontal?

Thanks in advance!

Ink pads should be stored so that the actual inkpad itself is facing down. The new style SU inkpads automatically do that for you, but most others do not. The reason they should be stored this way is so that the ink will remain at the top of the inkpad instead of going to the bottom or side of the pad, making the pad dry.

Storing your ink pads on their sides will cause most of the ink to collect on the side that is pointing down, and can lead to leakage. Flat is best!

I realize this is an old post. I've been in a discussion on a Facebook group about storing ink pads upside down and/or on their side and some have said it is now common knowledge in the craft industry that they don't need to be stored upside down anymore (and can be stored on their sides). The only manufacturer/brand I'm aware of that specifically said their ink pads do not need to be stored upside down are Tim Holtz Distress Inks.

Does anyone have any industry knowledge/doctumentation from Tsukineko or any other manufacturers that say the pads do not have to be stored upside down and/or that it is okay to store the pads on their sides? Ink pads can be a large investment and I don't want to risk them leaking or drying up if storing incorrectly. Thanks!
