FAQ's on the Compatibility of Stamp-n-Storage Products with the New Stampin' Up!® Ink Pads

Questions? We've got answers!

Q: Will the new Stampin' UP!® ink pads fit in my current Stamp-n-Storage products?
A: Yes, with the Spacers currently available, the new ink pads will fit in any Stamp-n-Storage products designed for the old Stampin' Up!® ink pads. This includes the Combo Holder, Standard Ink Pad Holder, Ink Pad and Refill Holder, Ink Pad and Marker Holder, and Half Height Combo Holder.


Q: Will the old Stampin' Up!® ink pads fit in the new Ink Pad Holder for 2018 SU or the Color Families Limited Edition Holder?
A: No, due to the height dimensions of the slots, the old pads will not fit in the new holders. The new design maximizes even more space by adding 3 additional rows to the ink pad holder.


Q: Why did you change the dimensions of the ink pad slots in the new Ink Pad Holder for 2018 SU and the Color Families Limited Edition Holder?
A: Our goal is to maximize your space. With the new Stampin' Up!® ink pad design we are able to fit 15 slots in each row instead of 12, still matching the standard 13-1/4" height of all our products. This allows you to store more ink pads in the same amount of space.


Q: Will you be releasing a new Combo Holder, for the new Stampin' Up!® ink pads
A: No, at this time we do not have plans to release a new Combo Holder. Instead you can purchase Spacers so your new Stampin' Up!® in pads will work with the Combo Holder.


Q: How many ink pads fit in the top shelf area of the Color Families Limited Edition Holder?
A: 35 new ink pads and 25 old ink pads


Q: How many refill bottles fit in the top shelf area of the Color Families Limited Edition Holder?
A: 63 (21 across and 3 deep)


Q: What is the best way to use the Spacers?
A: The Spacers offer two options for storing your new Stampin' Up!® ink pads in the current Stamp-n-Storage holders.

  1. Keep your new and old ink pads flush by standing the spacer up on its side, and push it to the back of your ink pad holder.
  2. For an easy grip, lay your spacer flat and push it to the back of your ink pad holder.

Q: What are the size of the Spacers?
