Default Tim Holtz Stamp Storage Binder

Does anyone have this stamp storage from Tim Holtz? I want to purchase some of his stamps and want to keep them together in this binder. One site mentions his stamps come in packaging that have the holes in them. How does this hold up to use? Does anyone have any wisdom to share about this product/storage system?

I have a couple of his binders. They're pricey, but very attractive. The pages his stamp sets come on are already hole punched, but I've used my own hole punch to widen the holes a little to make the pages flip a little easier. The pages the more recent sets come on are white with the images printed on the "front" side. They used to be clear so you could see the image on the stamp back sticker through the page. In both cases the pages are very sturdy, and I've never had any problems.

I could only fit about 9 pages in each binder, so after the first 2 I started buying inexpensive binders the same size from Office Max. They aren't as pretty or as sturdy, and they don't have the embossing or the zippers, but they are MUCH cheaper. I don't have as much crafting money as I'd like, and I'd rather spend it on Tim's stamps than his binders. If my budget was a lot more generous I'd love to have more of Tim's binders.

Hope this helps and isn't TMI.

Thank you DianneB! This is exactly the information I was looking for. I really love his new Blueprint Stamps.

I have the binder and use it if I'm ever going to be taking stamps away from home. But I don't put the pages that the TH/SA stamps come on in the binder -- I use the refill pocket pages that Michelle shows in her blog photos (above link).

These refill pocket pages are very useful - I have many and keep photopolymer stamp sets in them. Each pocket can hold two sets of 6 x 8 stamps. I keep mine on DVD shelving and they do hang over a bit but it's never been a problem.

I do have some Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous stamp sets and they stick well to the carrier pages, so I think those pages would work nicely in the binder. The zip-around is great peace of mind.

I agree with Dianne. I had his binder and got rid of it. It looked nice but they sure did not hold much and were way too pricey. I ended up using the SU unmounted stamp storage and found those much easier to store and use and those hold quite a bit.

Thanks everyone. I want to keep his blueprint series and the grunge style stamps together, so I will probably buy one of his binders to hold them. I am going to Office Max tonight and will look there for an alternative to use for the other stamps I have from Tim. Thanks again.

I use Paper Studio stamp storage binders from Hobby Lobby. Tim Holtz stamps on their punched carrier sheet fit perfectly. And these are deep binders, so you can really get a lot in each binder.

Hobby Lobby has them on sale for 50% off pretty frequently, so I only buy them when they're 50% off. With the 50% discount the each price is $6.50 each.

I also use these binders (with the clear inserts that they sell) for my die storage and other stamp storage. The insert's sale price is $1.99 each.

This system is perfect for me, and I have tried quite a few different die and stamp storage solutions and none were to my satisfaction, until I found these Paper Studio binders.

Here's a link to the binder page:

And to the storage inserts (the photo doesn't show it, but these inserts are tabbed):

HTH.

I just got one of his binders and the storage sheets and love it! Mine fit 10 of them or so. It's a great way to organize clear stamps. Thinking of getting more for my dies and cling stamps. The best deal I found was at Staples. I got mine for $23.

I see that this thread is a few years old but I wanted to know if anyone has found a cheaper alternative to the Tim Holtz brand of binder inserts? I love the size of the page inserts and the fact that they are so durable, but was looking for something a little less expensive. Thanks!

I really love the Tim Holtz binders. I like the original ones with the pretty embossing. Those were discontinued, and the re-release version looks smooth in pictures.
I really LOVE the zippers. I am always afraid of stamps dropping off the storage sheets.
I do keep all my Tim Holtz stamps in these binders.
BUT...I have purchased the big 3” size Trapper Keeper binders at back to school shopping.
Currently I have two and they are stuffed full. But again, they do zip closed all the way around.
I purchase the white stamp storage sheets online from Joann’s and a box of page protectors. So all my clear stamps are stored in those. There is more room in those than the Tim Holtz and the Trapper Keepers run around $15-$16 each.

Those look like standard 3-ring binders?

If that's what you're looking for, check your local goodwill / salvation army / thrift shops. They always have a surplus of nice zippered binders available that'll only set you back a few dollars each. Or hit the sales aisle shortly after school shopping season ends - right now in fact - that's another way of getting good quality binders for a fraction of the cost.
