I love my new Making Memories Clear Stamp Storage Binder. It gives me a place to organize all my clear stamps and keep them free from dust during storage. I ordered the extra folders - I'm optimistic that they will all soon be filled. Very nice detail on the spine that enables you to put a label (you create) for easy location. Love this!
I have been looking for seemingly forever for a way to story my clear stamps, and was very excited to find this album. This is my second one, and I am very happy with it. The reason for 4 instead of 5 stars is that this is my second one because it doesn't hold all that many pages. I think they could have expanded it a little without loosing functionality.
First of all this is the best way to store clear stamps that I have found so far. I like being able to see them all. But I have also found that the inside cover is poorly glued. I bought 2 and they both have fallen out. It doesn't ruin the integrity of the product or interfear w/ the usefullness but it is a little agrivating.
The box seems to be sturdy enough, but the best part are the folders (which can be purchased separately). All my clear stamp sets of various brands have fit and are easy to load and unload. No more worries about tiny alpha stamps getting lost in transit--they all stay safely tucked away in their places.
The idea for this is great - however it is rather limited in the number of folders with stamps it can hold. Seems a little pricy for the size - but is a nice storage idea.
I have several sheets of clear stamps and decided this would be a better way of organizing them than the clear shoebox-sized container I had them in before. I confess, I'm a little disappointed with the folders in this storage system. I would have liked them to open fully, maybe with a zipper down the long sides, so I can access one stamp at the bottom of the folder without taking all of the others out first. The clear folders make it easy to see my stamps, but they don't make it easy to access or use them.
I purchased this so I could carry my clear stamps when I attend crop sessions. While the sleeves hold stamps still on their acetate backer well, loose clear stamps fall to the bottom of the sleeves (just like in plastic baggies). I was also disappointed that you can add no more than 1 refill before the hard cover will no longer close. Too bad, I was looking for a compact way to carry stamps, not for a bookshelf filler.
This really is the best system I've found for organizing my clear stamps but the construction of the binder isn't great. When I opened mine the insider liner fell out. I'm still using it because the idea is great but I wish they'd be of a better quality, especially for the price.
Since I just recently spent an entire weekend transferring all of my acrylic stamps into empty cd cases (right before this came out) and since I had to have this too I am using it for my rubons. The folders are great, all of my rubons fit, some need to be cut in half or so but it's still all good. I can use the zipper pouch for applicators or whatever. The inside cover did fall off but nothing a little bit of Fabri-Tac can't fix.
After hesitating to buy this I have discovered that I love it! Every brand of my clear stamps fit in the pages and what an easy way to keep track, protect and carry them. I have stored 11 pages in it comfortably. Since I had ordered extra pages I have decided to buy another binder.
The idea behind this item is great but there are a few things that need to be worked on. It is only big enough for the amount of folders that the binder comes with. I dont think that buying refills for it is a good idea....don't think they will fit. I filled the folders that it came with and now it doesnt close very well. It closes magnetically and the magnets arent really strong enough for the job. the lid pops off all the time. I think this would be a great product if they worked out the kinks a little. The inside cover did fall off of mine too. I just hot glued it back on. The positive is that it is really easy to find your stamps and its very organized.
The binder is a great idea but disappointed the inside black cover is not well thought out. It is poorly glued and I have now received two bad binders. Just a hassle to call and get another one. Other than that--was surprised you can't fit too many stamp folders inside. Great idea but box could have been a bit deeper.
Just received this and as others have said before the inside cover was not glued well. I will just glue it back on.
I have already filled this one only held 10 of the pouche's for me. I am hesititant to recommend this for anyone with a larger clear stamp collection. You will need more than one.
When I opened the package, it fell apart, and I had to glue it back together. Aside from that, it holds a lot, and all of my stamp sheets fit rather nicely. I wish there were more zipper pouches for the acrylic blocks.
