I do the same thing with my unmounteds. At first I tried using the CD cases and hated it. Glad to see someone else doing this.

I also use my SU stamps unmounted. When I get a new set, I scan a copy of the index sheet that comes with the stamps. I put one copy in a binder and the other copy I use on the box to index the stamps inside the box.

It was faster than stamping an index sheet.



I store mine in CD cases and I have some stamps mounted on the Old Island plastic sheets in a binder - mostly alphabets because they're too big to fit in one CD case.

But I thought of way for you get more in your SU! cases.

Insert a sheet of plastic (like the ones from Old Island) and cut to fit in the case. You can then attach more cling stamps to the front and back of that.

That way you'll have the more surfaces to store your stamps and can fit more in your case. You'd have the inside cover, the bottom plus the 2 sides of your plastic.

It's great to read how everyone else is storing their unmounteds and I like the tip about labelling.


Julie, for future use, check here, they sell the clam shell boxes much cheaper than SU does!


Since everyone else is talking about the storage, I am going to talk about the indexing. Did you know that you can stamp on your cling with Stazon before you mount and cut. Then you have an automatic index per stamp?? The only thing you have to make sure you do though is let it dry. Otherwise you will have very inky fingers and slightly smudged images.

I forgot to mention that it is so easy to slip a cd case or two into a small tote if you are going to take some stamping with you. I store my cd cases in the wooden crate holders standing upright. in a space of 30 inches x 15 inches I have 5 crates with 33 cd cases in each. I typed labels on the computer and adhered the strips onto the end so I know which set is in each case. Like you, I have stamped an index page for each set and keep it in a small binder with the name noted on each.

I will be glad to send you a picture if you would like to see this as well.

BTW: I ordered my cd cases in bulk - very very cheap!!!! even with S/H

I have to agree with the others who suggest the cd cases. They take up much less room and are really quite easy to use. Since I do not get rid of my stamp sets (I only buy the ones I like in the first place) I just unmount them and store them in the cd cases. I do not put my stamps on foam though. I just use a common - every day - elmer's glue stick to adhere the stamp to the acrylic block. It holds the stamp in place and washes off easily under water. I don't find not having the foam padding a problem to get good images. I do usually stamp on a foam stamping pad or a pad of the SU grid sheets or a magazine if I think the image is not quite what it should be. Otherwise, I just stamp on my CS sitting on one of the grid sheets on my table.

The cd cases sure do save a lot of room compared to the SU plastic cases.

Thanks for sharing the info on the hot knife. I HATE cutting my stamps when they are on the foam!!!!!


Hey, I have all unmounted stamps. I store all mine in Regular CD cases. You can buy them in bulk at Walmart or Office supply stores. I bought jewel (thin) cases and replaced all my cd with them, which made my cd rack so much cleaner. Would you like a photo?

Lisa (crazycatstamper)

That's how I have mine, too!


CD Cases work great for storing the stamps mounted on EZmount foam. They are much thinner so you can store a lot more in a smaller space. I use a 3 drawer rolling cart for storing mine. You can fit 2 side by side in the drawer. Put a label on the spine of the CD case, store them on their end, and you can see the label for the contents of each case. My daughter sells them if you are interested in purchasing empty cases.


I use cd cases the same way. We have a lot of them laying around the house.

Hi Julie,
I've seen a cheap storage system for unmounted stamps at Old Island Stamp Company. Here's a link:

From my quick look, it seems like you can get storage sheets that fit in a 3-ring binder for $1. Old Island is a Canadian company, and I have gotten great service from them in the past.
