I haven't found a system that works yet, for me. I hate to see them waste away because I can't get my act together.

Studio Calico is selling stamp storage cases that I really like.

I bought the exact same stamp cases that Studio Calico is selling from
Tapeonline.com for WAY cheaper. They are the Jewel Box King DVD cases.

I have my SC stamps stored with all of my other unmounted stamps in Univenture binder cases. I use EZ Mount cling sheets to hold them. I have all of my stamps indexed in a rolodex so that I can find them. For the SC ones, I actually have a section in the rolodex especially for Studio Calico. Additionally, I have these stamps entered under the appropriate subject category (e.g. airplane, flower, clock). So those stamps get stamped on 2 different rolodex cards. This works for me -- I can easily find all of my SC stamps, and I don't neglect to use them if I need to stamp a particular object.

I have the Studio Calico stamp storage cases at the tip top of my Christmas list. I want to organize them like Kinsey Wilson has shown on her blog.

But I've also considered using a binder with plastic sheets to store them as well. I think it'd be a cheaper route for sure. Good Luck!

I buy them there too, but i wouldn't say they are "way cheaper". The price at SC is for 6 cases, so when i did the math, it was almost the same price. maybe i'm missing something? (i am terrible at math, so maybe i messed up! )

To the OP, I use these cases and love them. I found a greeting card rack that i bought for $20 from a store that was going out of business and i use it to store all my stamps in. It was a super cool find, and i can store a ton of the cases in them. I just spread the metal apart a little to fit the cases. Best storage ever...and unique!

I use the 6 x 8 Martha Stewart binders from Staples. The Snap albums would be similar I suppose. I buy an assortment of the page protectors and use those to store the stamps.

I have a wicker basket I bought at Wal Mart for $10 sometime this past year. It's made to store CDs I think, but it's the perfect width for storing my stamps, which I store in the original packaging. I can flip through them and quickly find what I want.

I have mine in a basket...love to flip through my stamps. I will be switching all my stamps over to the scraprack come December. I don't like my stamps put away in a binder, but a huge open face binder that is always out and accessible combines the ease of a basket and the organization of a binder all in one.

I use a binder and the Martha Stewart page protectors from Staples. They have different sized pockets and work for all of my unmounted stamps. I am able to store a lot more stamp sets than I did when I used DVD and CD cases.

I bougth 12 of the cases from SC. I looked at the link for tapeonline but, when you add in the shipping it ends up being more expensive. (I typically spend enough to get free shipping every month from SC.) I had my unmounted in page protecters in a binder before. I just found it to be a hassle to flip through all of the pages and I was getting to the point where all my stamps didn't fit in one binder.

I also use the same system as Kinsey Wilson, after reading her blog post. It appeals to my Type A nature

Those cases are just the right size if you want to keep the 4x6 stamp sets together, or you can fit a ton more if you squeeze them in tightly.

Also, I keep those cases in a tray right on my desk so I can see them front and center and you know, actually USE them.

Bunches of Questions:

So do the stamps just stick to the cases without problems?

Do you mix and match shapes?

Do you use the covers somehow in the binder?

I ordered those cases, cause I would love to organzed them, but I am not sure how to set them up.

I'm having one of those 'duh' moments that as a Studio Calico subscriber, I hadn't seen those cases. Lol

Thank you for showing me the way!

Also, I keep those cases in a tray right on my desk so I can see them front and center and you know, actually USE them.
That's what I need; to be able to see them so I will actually use them.


Ciao,
