Hello! Several months ago I shared how I store my clear and cling stamps. (And I still *LOVE* this system!) Since then, the question I get asked the most is about how I store small and large stamp sets. Today’s video answers this question…

Click HERE to see my original stamp storage video. It has some helpful info, too.
Several companies are coming out with stamp sets that are bigger or smaller than the average size stamp set. In this video I address these sizes. For me, my organization is best when all the stamp sets are stored the same. This means putting all the stamps in Avery Elle Stamp Pockets. For large stamp sets, I have to “convert” them a bit. Yes, this takes time, but not much. For small sets, I put two in one pocket. This works best for me since I like a uniform look. And I still store all my stamps in a Fridge Binz. Man I love those things! (Click HERE for more information on this storage system.)
If you really want stamp pockets that are bigger or smaller, here are some options:
- For tall and narrow stamp sets, try the Office Depot 5″x8″ pockets. I used to use these (you can see them in THIS video) but have since switched to the method I showed today.
- I know many people also like the large stamp pockets offered by Tim Holtz HERE. I haven’t used these because I have to have so many stamps (since this is my job) and they have a higher price point. But the quality is amazing. (I didn’t mention in the video, but I keep my larger Tim Holtz stamp sets in a drawer by themselves due to their bigger size.)
- If you want a smaller pocket for smaller stamps, try THESE. These pockets are the same ones I use for wafer thin dies, which you can see in a video HERE… and they fit smaller stamp sets perfectly.
- If you are looking for a much more cost effective option, you can try THESE 5″x8″ bags which work with many stamp sizes. I would also put a white insert in these for support.
So in the end, I recommend going with whatever works best for you. For me? It is all about the uniform look. But I hope you can find something that works well for you from the options I shared.
Good luck and happy organizing!
