Hi, I'm new here and have a question on storing thickers letter stickers. The letters sometimes fall down to the bottom of the package. Should I leave them or is there a better way once this happens? I keep them flat in a 12X12 storage container in their packaging. Also they sell them on clearance in the package but off the backing and all stuck together on the bottom. Does anyone ever buy them this way?

I store them in their original packaging in the old basket that once housed my acrylic stamps.

I haven't them fall off the backing yet but I have so many thickers that I have to store them in a drawer in one of those three drawer plastic storage drawer thingies you buy at like Walmart.
I just keep them in their original packaging but once they got down to just a few and if they started falling off, maybe you could try sticking them to the side of a cd case or something? Just an idea. OR you could try using repositionable adhesive and sticking them back on to the original packaging.
Personally, I hate the original packaging because it's hard for me to get the cards with the thickers back into the plastic but I haven't heard of another way to store them so I just put up with it. Sorry to ramble. lol

I have 2 ways of storing alphas. If they're stickers, they go in a file cabinet drawer by color. If they're die cuts, I put them in baggies by set and then in photo boxes by color. For Thickers - if they're sticky, they're in my drawer. When they start falling to the bottom of the package, I move them to a baggie and put them in with my die cut alphas.

I haven't had too much of an issue with the letters falling off the packaging, and I haven't seen them sold that way either.

On a clip-it-up, of course!

Thank you for all of the replies. I will look into those boxes from Target. Maybe the stickers fall off the backing because of the humidity here.

I also keep them in their original packaging and then store them in the IKEA medium boxes that you put together and kind of feel like cardboard. They are the pefect length. I keep the lid off so I can easily flip through them.

I never thought of using the clip-it-up...but that would mean I would have to put it together!

I store my in the drawer of one of those 3 drawer plastic carts too.
I have seen the letters fall off a lot at the store I worked at and they are in the clearance at Hobby Lobby like that sometimes. I live in a very humid place too.

I took a break from scrapbooking and once back, have not started using Thickers. I see them at the store and they are at the bottom of the packages. I've seen this in many types of areas, not sure if humidity has anything to do with it. I just wonder if the adhesive is so poor in the package how will it last in the long run....just my thoughts, hth!

Mine are in the original packaging and I have all of them in one of my Cropper Hoppers. Eventually I want a second Clip It Up for all of my alphas.

In cropper Hoppers much like I do paper.. by color. (all letter stickers not just thickers)

I leave mine in the package and then store the packages upright in magazine holders. Cheap and it works.
