Question Storing Texture Plates

Anyone have these? Mine are intended mainly for use with gelli plate printing. While I have only a few, I can't decide whether to store them with the clear and unmounted stamps or set up a separate container for just texture plates so that they are easy to grab when using the gelli plates. Separate storage sounds nice, but there is always the space issue. . . .

Are you talking about plates similar to the old Fiskars texture plates? Otherwise I'm not sure what the product is, but I can't imagine storing those with stamps - I keep mine with embossing folders.

I'm not sure what the poster is talking about either but I too have Fiskar Plates and keep them with my embossing folders but if you are talking about:

1) Gel texture plates I would store them with my plain gel plates...

OR

2) Plastic type products that are often used for candy making or clay crafting I would probably store those with my stencils or possibly separately depending on how many I had or how often I used them in other crafting venues.

My best advice is to try something and if it doesn't feel like it is working then try something else. I consider my craft room is an ever evolving "project" and I'm okay with that... now

These texture plates are basically floppy sheets of bare rubber. They could be used for traditional stamping but aren't intended to be mounted. The Frugal Crafter has a demo of the Carabelle stamp plates:

The plates are often pretty big and could be a challenge to store with the clear stamp sets. I guess I will keep them separate for now; since I likely will be using them only with gel printing. If I acquire anymore I may have more of a storage problem though.

The longer you have and use them the better you'll get a feel for where they will need to be kept. Good luck and happy gel printing. I keep thinking I need to dust my gel plate off and use it again but have yet to do so, shame on me.

What Stacy said. I only have two, in large clear pockets with my clear stamps because I’ve used them for card backgrounds.

But gel plates are in a Raskog cart elsewhere to be used in the kitchen. If I mostly used texture plates for gel plating they’d be in that cart with other texture tools, foam stamps, etc. OT: the fave - an old fashioned hard plastic hair roller+cover that an LSS teacher let me keep - makes tons of different marks.

I had Fiskars texture plates years ago when they first came out and I got rid of them during one of my moves. Now I use my embossing folders on gel plates to get textured backgrounds. I find them easier to store in clear storage bins which I also use for my metal dies on top shelf of Raskog cart.

Lydia Fiedler (Understand Blue) uses them a lot. She is here and on YouTube. Maybe she has something on storing them.

Yeah I was thinking my metal cover texture plates I keep with the embossing folders. So many things with the same names!

I was going to suggest Lydia too.
Otherwise personally I would keep them with the gelli supplies as those are about of a size. I have re-purposed some old plastic dry goods containers that are only a few inches wide but tall for stuff like big shot plates or maybe a mag rack as those look pretty big. I just dont know about the floppy bit unless they come in a thing you can keep them in or want to use the same stuff people use on raw rubber to attach them to cling storage pages.

I would put them in with my background stamps, just because they could easily be used as stamps. Would love to get my hands on some, but haven't justified the cost (to myself) yet. I do use my larger background stamps on my gelli plate, too.
