I have been trying to find a suitable storage system for my clear stamps. I notice that after several uses, even with cleaning the stamps don't stick as well. I've tried everything for storage and easy viewing of the stamps but still haven't found anything. I've used document protectors, their too flimsy. I've used static boards, stamps don't stick well. Any suggestions?

HL sales a binder that has really sturdy page protecters that hold them really well. I have one that is pretty full and it has 17 stamp sets in it. It's about 2 1/2 - 3" thick and 8x8ish. I found it with the clear acrylic stamps. Love it.

Stampendous Thintainers. I LOVE these for unmounted stamps. Unfortunately the store here does not sell them but they're not hard to find.

I use the TH binder....works great. You can stick the stamps to the outside pockets or slide stamps into the pockets, whatever you like....

I ordered some EZ Mount Stamp Storage panels to make a binder for my die cuts but I hear they work great for clear stamps (what they are made for)

I've also heard while looking at youtube videos that if you put your stamps on anything that is non acetate (think thats the word) it will destroy the stickiness

I really like these panels. I've got a full binder, and I'm needing to order more.

If you're having problems storing your stamps, try making a "sticky box." This is normally used to prep your stamps for stamping. So here's a few tips on that first. Find a product called "mount it." As far as I know, it's a specialty adhesive sold only by Club Scrap (clubscrap.com). Coat the bottom of a small pizza or small scrapping/shipping box (one that an order came in--it's cleaner). Let dry but it will remain sticky. Then place your stamps image side down on the sticky surface for a minute or so. Make sure the stamp gets a good coating of Mount It, but not so much your image will be clogged with glue. Then ink your stamp (mount it on a acrylic block, then turn the block over, press into the paper, etc.). You should get a fine image. Practice a bit first. Your sticky box should become your best stamping friend. (PS Try a good ink: a hybrid is great (part ink, part pigment OR a pigment only ink (e.g. Avery Elle, Tsukineko)). After cleaning your stamp, try using the sticky box on your stamp again. I haven't done this yet but I'll bet that your stamp will stick to whichever surface you decide to store it in. Good luck. Let me know.
