Stampin' Up has come out with a space-saving, completely customizable modular storage system that is going to clean up our craft rooms and make our creative time so much more fun and efficient. After selling out in an amazing debut that blew away all our forecasts, we're back in stock and ready to revamp your 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 designed to fit our new-design flat Stampin’ Pads only. Use the Open Storage Cube for the older styles and miscellaneous specialty pads. NOTE: you CAN use them; however, it is not recommended because it pushes the trays apart and reduces the stability of the stack. Over time, cramming the old-style pads in may warp the plastic or scrape off the labels on the pads.
How high can I stack storage trays?
At the Home Office, they stacked up to 50 storage trays without any issues, BUT it is not recommended to stack that high. While our Storage by Stampin’ Up! products are sturdy, the higher you stack them, the less stable they’ll 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 small punches. You can also stack your old-style ink pads in these, if you have some colors still in that formation. Three of the half-size wood-mount empty stamp cases fit in one Open Cube and can divide it conveniently, too.
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 free-standing or stacked?
Both. We designed it to be free-standing 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've 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, my camera, batteries and cords in another.
Are ink pads difficult to remove from Ink Pad & Marker Storage Trays?
No. When you insert an ink pad into a storage tray, a small portion of the ink pad will stick out. It is designed this way, so your ink pads will be both secure and easy to access. Same for the markers—there is plenty of space to grip them to pull out.
Can I buy single Ink Pad & Marker Storage Trays and/or Stampin’ Blends Storage Trays?
No. Both of these items include a set of five white plastic trays (space for a total of 25 Blends). Please use the configuration chart to determine how many storage units you need. You can split a pack with a friend, if you’d like! But it’s good to have a little room to grow, too.
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’s wipeable if it needs cleaning or dusting, too.
How do the silicone feet work?
To protect your surface and prevent slipping, we’ve 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.
Storage Pieces now available:
I want it all! But the configuration I want is a lot of money. What can I do?
The BEST tip I can give you is to sign up as a demonstrator. You can order storage cubes in your $99 Starter Kit (unlike most companies, you choose the ENTIRE contents of your kit, with no restrictions!) and then anything you order after that will be at a discount. You'll never be required to host parties or hold classes unless you want to, and you can drop at any time. Sign up for my team and start getting the demo discount immediately: http://bit.ly/joinSUnow
