I had been looking for a way to get my ink pads organizd and easy to see. I looked in several craft stores but never saw anything made specifically for this use. When I came upon this storage unit I was so excited. When it arrived I had to assemble it (not difficult). I now have my ink pads organized and at my fingertips. I don't plan on carrying mine anywhere but but if you do, I want to warn you that it is heavy.
