Default Storing Papertrey Ink Stamps

So, I got my first order of Papertrey stamps. It's cool that they send along empty CD cases for storage. The problem is, the acrylic sheets the stamps came on do not fit in the CD cases.

So, Do I remove the stamps from the acrylic sheets and mount them right into the CD cases?

Please share some insight into how to store the Papertrey stamps.

Thanks!

Yes, you take the stamps off the acetate sheets and they will stick right onto the cd case. With the bigger sets, you will need to use both sides. Don't worry if they seem to stick to each other, they will be stickier at first till they get used. Some people use the plastic that comes with the sets to put between them so they don't stick. Just be careful peeling the stamps off the plastic sheets...if you aren't careful, they can rip. HTH!

I use the plastic sheet as a stamp-a-ma-jig sheet. When I use a stamp - I always stamp it on a plastic sheet and put it into the container with the stamps so I have it next time I use that stamp. Its always ready to use. I stamp the stamp with staz on ink so it is permanent.

Kathy,
How do you get the stamp in the same position on the block that would make it work with the sheet you pre-stamped? This sounds like a great idea but I am wondering about the position of the stamp. It would have to be in the exact same spot on the block each time to work with the pre-stamped image sheet. So how do I line it up. Thanks in advance.
Hugs,
Gina K.

I just cut the sheets to fit and leave the stamps on them with the stamps facing the CD holder. That way they won't stick together. I put most of my acrylic stamps in cds.

I have several PTI stamp sets, but I don't like storing the sets in the CDs. What is it that the stamps are on when they arrive? Is it an acetate sheet? I'm looking to get some bigger sheets for storing my stamps, but when I went to my local Staples they had no idea what it was, and they didn't have anything that came close. Any ideas?

I bought clear boxes from Flourishes. They are bigger than the CDs that come with the PTI stamps, and you don't have to cut up the sheet with the images on them. I use the CD cases for other things -- like storing my Nestabilities.

Ditto. I'm addicted to these storage cases. I like them way better than the CD cases. Whenever I buy something from Flourishes I throw in a set.

I don't think Kathy meant she uses it with the PTI stamps specifically. She just uses the clear sheets as extra Stamp-A-Ma-jig sheets ... at least that's what I think she meant

Cool boxes at flourishes, do a lot of you use those instead of CD boxes?

I thought these stamps were clear. If so, why would you need a stamp-a-ma-jig for them? Wouldn't you be able to see right through the stamps so, therefore, avoiding the need for a sheet?
