Polycarbonate sheets for clear stamp storage
There are a multitude of different ways to store clear stamps. Many people use cd cases, others use tins. The EZ mount people make some sheets that may even work. This woman made a cute little cardboard book too and another used picture frames. My solution was to purchase clear polycarbonate sheets, cut them in 8 1/2 x 11 sheets and punch 3 holes in them so that I can keep them in a 3 ring binder. Why polycarb and not acrylic? Acrylic is too brittle, it tends to shatter ever time I go to put a hole in it or turn the page. Polycarb is soft enough to punch a hole into using a crop-a-dile or similar tool. I then place the stamps on the back of the sheet and put a white sheet of paper behind it, ink up the stamps and stamp them on the white sheet. That way I know where to put them back!
