For those of you who don’t know what thickers are, they are “thick”alphabet stickers made by American Crafts. They can be made of foam, chipboard, plastic, felt, etc. The most common thickers are foam and chipboard. Here is a photo of some thickers for reference.
Thickers come in many sizes, colors, materials and fonts and therefore, tend to be quite addictive because you “need” to have the right combination of each for every layout right? (lol).
I get asked on a regular basis how I store my thickers so today I’m going to show you. I used to store them in plastic bins in a supply/tool shelving system but when I moved, I needed something more aesthetically pleasing because my new scrap area is in my living room. I searched everywhere until I finally found this:
Here is a photo of the inside of each drawer, as you can see, they hold well over 100 packs per drawer.
I made some print and cut stickers using my cameo and labeled the drawers with the corresponding colors of thickers stored in each one.
I had to order this drawer system on Walmart.com because my local store didn’t carry it, but the shipping was free (to the store) and it didn’t take long at all for it to arrive. It was inexpensive and easy to put together.
Here is the product information in case you’d like to purchase one for your own thickers storage:
It looks taller in the photo than it does in real life. It’s actually shorter and wider looking in my opinion. The exact measurements are: 21.9 x 12.8 x 4.0.
As you can tell, I have a lot of thickers in mine. It stores COMFORTABLY 300 packs of thickers with room to grow!
I hope this helps you in your search for a storage solution for your thickers… It works great for me!
