There are dozens of wood stamp organizer choices, but which is right for you?
Before you decide on the best organizers for your wood stamps, think about your crafting life. Different types of organizers work better for different types of crafters. Try asking yourself the following questions. Your answers will help you choose the right organizers.
Do you have a dedicated room for crafting? If so is there open shelving for displaying stamps or are you limited for space and need to condense them?
Do you ALWAYS craft in that room? If not, you'll want to insure the organizers you choose are portable.
Do you collect wood stamps and plan on continuing to add to your collection? If so, you'll need to plan for expansion.
Are your craft supplies stored somewhere other than where you craft? Do you need organizers that close with lids or can you carry open organizers to your works space?
If you always craft at home - and have, or can create, open shelving or cabinet space...
Visible and accessible is hands down the preferred method for storing anything in your craft room. If you've got space to display your wood mounted stamps, where they're visible and accessible, you'll use them more often. Stadium Arrangers are great for open shelves or cabinets and keep your stamps easily available.
If you always craft at home, but need to move your supplies around easily...
Combine a stadium arranger or 3 with our Companion Cart. You can roll it out next to you when you're stamping, but park it in the corner when you're not using it. Thinking about keeping all of your stamping tools and supplies in 1 place? A cart is a perfect,portable solution.
If you travel with your supplies - either around the house or to crops, classes, or retreats...
Having your supplies stored in the same containers you'll use to travel with them is a big plus - no packing and unpacking. Visible and accessible are still important, but so is "compactness" ( is that a word?). Try organizing your stamps in something like our Stamp, Store & Go bags or Buddy Bags.
You can organize these using a catalog (learn why) or you can organize by theme, holiday or event. While the catalog system is more efficient for space, you may find that organizing by theme, holiday or event is more beneficial if you ALWAYS travel with your supplies.
Do you have a smaller collection of woods stamps that you would like to keep organized by theme, holiday or event - and also need them to be portable?
Whether you're pulling them off a shelf to use at home or to drop into your crop tote a small, compact and clear organizer is an easy solution. If you're dropping things into a tote, think about accessibility at the event. If you "stack" things on top of each other you'll need to "dig" down to get to your supplies. If you can keep your supplies vertical it will be easier to find, use, and put them away. Long Buddy Bags are a good choice for keeping things vertical and accessible.
