I recently decided to completely redo the way I store my wafer thin dies. The way I stored them previously worked just fine but I found it annoying to have to remove the dies from the plastic sleeves and sometimes the dies fell off the magnetic sheet because it just wasn’t strong enough.
I sold my previous die storage system and used the money to buy these Artbin Magnetic Sheets (refills) without the case, which comes in a pack of three. They measure approximately 9″x7″ and look like this:
I had to admit that a few years ago when this product first came out, I stored my spellbinders on them, in the cases. However, I found the cases a pain to go through so I switched my storage system. Now I find myself buying the sheets again but this time, without the case.
The reason I chose these Artbin Magnetic Sheets is because of the strength of the magnetic surface, it’s the strongest of any product I’ve come across and I know for a fact that the dies won’t fall off.
This is what my dies look like on the sheets:
See how easy it is to flip through them? And, I labeled them at the top left and right of the magnetic sheets.
Right now I’m storing my dies in two of these clear bins that I found at Walmart in the section where refrigerator organization supplies are found. It was inexpensive and works well. As you can see, I still have room to grow as well!
Here is the UPC code/label for the storage bin just in case you are looking for one. (Click the image to see it full size or to print it.
In case you are unable to find this product at your local store, here is a similar product that may work just as well if not better.
If you are unable to purchase either of these products, just look for any strong organizer that measures at least 9.5″ wide. It should be tall enough to hold the magnetic sheets because they get quite heavy when you store a lot of them in each one. (This is why I have two and am getting ready to get a third!)
There are so many ways to store wafer thin dies but this is what works for me. I hope this page helps you find a solution to your wafer thin die storage needs!
