I am looking for a spinner to store my ink pads. I know they make several that don't spin, but I prefer the ones that do. They take up less space and that's a big issue for me. Does anyone half the spinner type and if you do, pros and cons? What brand etc..

Thank you for your help.. You guys are awesome!!

Spinners take up a lot of desktop space. I prefer the cassette-type storage units that sit at the back of my table. My ink pads are within reach, and the units only takes up a couple of inches at the back of the table. My table is against a wall.

How many ink pads do you have? Do you plan to buy more?

I was debating on the spinners too when I was redoing my studio this month. They do take up a lot of space on your desk. I went with a casette top storage set up. I made mine out of foam core. I thought my wall was a better area for space in case I buy more ink pads in the future. I hope that helps.

I have the Color Caddy. I like it because it holds all different size ink pads and refills.

Here is a link to an ink storage container made from foam board. This is the one I made and have had it for about 4 years now. I can store my reinkers on the top. Here is a link to the instructions

Blueeyez, I know you've said you want a spinner BUT I made an ink storage unit recently that was so inexpensive and easy to make you may want to consider it. Costs nothing to look. lol
