Your space. Your way. That’s the tagline for the new storage system by Stampin’ Up!
There are many organization options on the market, but these are customized for our new ink pads! And whether you own 5 ink pads or the whole collection of exclusive Stampin’ Up colors, you can customize the cubes to fit your workspace! Yes, this new sleek, space-saving, modular storage system is completely customizable to meet your needs, to organize your craft room and to make your creative time more enjoyable because everything is organized and within reach!
While we anticipated crafters would go crazy over this fabulous system, the debut orders surpassed our forecasts and quickly sold out. These amazing storage solutions are back in stock and available to help you revamp your craft space.
Here’s the answers all your questions about these units!
Will old-design Stampin’ Pads fit in the Ink Pad & Marker Storage Trays?
The Ink Pad & Marker Storage Trays are perfect for storing our new-design flat Stampin’ Pads only. I recommend using the Open Storage Cube to store the older style inkpads and our specialty pads like Memento, Stazon and Spectra inkpads and the new cleaning pad.
How high can I stack storage trays?
At the Home Office, they stacked 50 storage trays without any issues, BUT it is not recommended. While our Storage by Stampin’ Up! products are sturdy, the higher you stack them, the less stable they will become. Use your discretion when stacking.
Can I mount my Storage by Stampin’ Up! products on the wall?
Our modular storage products are designed to sit on a table (or similar flat surface). Drilling holes in them is not recommended. If you want them on a wall, consider a flush-mount box shelf that they can sit upon, and make sure it is tightly anchored to the wall.
How should I use the Open Storage Cube?
The Open Storage Cube can be used to hold any miscellaneous items like ribbon, embellishments, and your old-style inkpads. Three of the half-size wood-mount empty stamp cases fit in one Open Cube and can divide it conveniently, too. Tip: insert a piece of Styrofoam packaging to create a stopper to keep your ribbons from rolling out!
Can I mix and match Storage by Stampin’ Up! products?
Yes! Our Storage by Stampin’ Up! products are modular and designed with customization in mind. Whether your space is long and low or tall and skinny, the cubes will configure to fit your space.
Do I need a Storage Lid for each 5-tray stack?
No. The Storage Lid covers the top of Ink Pad & Marker Storage Trays, Stampin’ Blends Storage Trays, and Open Storage Cubes, so you need only one per storage “tower.”
Are Storage by Stampin’ Up! products freestanding or stacked?
Both. We designed it to be freestanding and stackable, so you can customize your crafting space to work best for your personalized creative needs. Each “tower” will be a separate unit that you can cap with a topper and add the silicone feet to the bottom, once you have decided exactly how you want to arrange your space.
Will there be expansions to the Storage by Stampin’ Up! product line in the future?
Like all of our product offerings, we hope Storage by Stampin’ Up! will be successful and expand, but there is no news to share at this point.
How many Stampin’ Ink Refills can I store in the Storage Topper?
You can store up to 20 Stampin’ Ink Refills (or other small items like embossing powders, sponges, adhesives or embellishments) in the Storage Topper. I keep all my adhesives in two toppers.
Are inkpads difficult to remove from Ink Pad & Marker Storage Trays?
No. When you insert an inkpad into a storage tray, a small portion of the inkpad will stick out for easy access. Same for the markers—there is plenty of space to grip them to pull out. In fact, you can store two Stampin’ Write markers next to your inkpads.
Can I buy single Ink Pad & Marker Storage Trays and/or Stampin’ Blends Storage Trays?
No. Each package contains a set of five white plastic trays (space for a total of 25 Blends). This modular system provides room to grow and change as your needs change!
What material do you use to make Storage by Stampin’ Up! products?
Our modular storage products are made with a versatile white, acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) plastic, which is a lightweight and durable material. It is wipeable if it needs cleaning or dusting, too.
How do the silicone feet work?
To protect your surface and prevent slipping, we have included peel-and-stick silicone feet with the cubes. Save any extras after you have your set up in place, in case you decide to rearrange or add more modules later. Also, the feet come in two different heights. When you apply the feet, the thicker ones go toward the front of the unit, over the circles with the plus marks.
