Space Available

The first thing you might examine is the type of home storage space you have for your Ink Pad Holder. Will it fit on your desk? Do you plan to hang it on the wall? Will you store it in your IKEA ® Kallax shelving? Stamp-n-Storage offers great options for all these questions.

Wall Mounting

Most Stamp-n-Storage products are available for wall mounting. This is a great option if you don't have desk or shelf space available. It is best to order your product with the wall mounting attached so all you have to do is hang it. Hanging your product is easy, simply follow these instructions.


Table Space

Stamp-n-Storage products were designed to maximize your creative home storage space while enhancing creativity with easy and visible access to your supplies. That's why our Ink Pad Holders display so perfectly on your desk or table regardless if you have an L-shape, space under cabinets, or a standard rectangle desk. Your Stamp-n-Storage Ink Pad Holders will even stack to maximize more space!


Kickstands are also a great option to maximize your table space. It lifts your product 1.5" off your table, giving you extra space to slide your project or other tools underneath your Ink Pad Holder.

Types of Inks

What makes the Stamp-n-Storage Ink Pad Holder efficient for your space is the customization of each ink compartment to fit your inks perfectly with no space wasted. The Standard Ink Pad Holder was designed for Stampin' Up!® ink pads while the Distress Ink Pad Holder was designed for the RangerTM Distress collection. Our Slim Ink Pad Holder is a great option for medium sized pads like Gina K. Designs, Taylored Expressions, Concord & 9th, Lawn Fawn, ColroBox and more. Take an inventory of the types of inks you have and choose the best Ink Pad Holder that fits those inks to utilize your space.

These Ink Pad Holders were designed for Stampin' Up ink pads. They fit perfectly with no wasted space.

Inks that fit include Close To My Heart®, My Favorite ThingsTM, Gina K., Simon Says StampsTM, MementoTM, BrillianceTM, Color Theory®, ColorBox®, and more.
