Supplies needed: Binder (I have mine in a 2"), 8.5 x 11 page protectors, dividers, photocopies of your stamp sets, your stamp sets (obviously), boxes or My Acrylix organizers (Z1038) to hold your stamps, labeller or pen and your computer or paper to do an index for each section of the binder (which is essentially your inventory)
Scan or photocopy each stamp set (I just take them out of the plastic envelope and put them on my scanner as I receive them. Initially, I took all my stamp sets to Staples and photocopied them). **This was the hardest part.
Sort your stamp sets in a way that makes sense to you. I generally sort by themes: spring, sentiments, Christmas etc. The My Acrylix Organizer (Z1038) holds 15 sets, so that is how many I grouped together. Before I started using the CTMH organizers, I used boxes from Michaels that actually hold the same number of sets. Your sets will be whatever the size of your storage container is. Then label each of the containers that hold a set with a number or a letter (I used letters).
Label each stamp set with the corresponding letter or number from it's box. You could even take this a step further and give it a sub number to correspond to it's spot in the box. Eg. B-7 which means your stamp set goes back into box B into the 7th spot.
Make a list / chart with the stamps from each box (I chose to put them in the order they are in the box.- - that's up to you). I Included the name of the stamp, item # and description. The title at the top of the page indicates box letter and theme.
For boxes that are not full, I leave enough blanks on the chart so that I can easily add when I get new ones and I pre-print the labels and store them with the chart in the page protector so that adding new inventory is simplified.
Next I made dividers / tabs and attached them to the page protectors. I then followed with inserting the photocopies of the sets in the order they are in their storage box. I put the photocopies back to back. For some of the smaller sets, you could put two on a page, but I just wanted to keep it simple. I also put extra page protectors in each section that was not yet full.
I made a cover for my binder and then organized all the sets on a shelf. I can't begin to tell you how fast I can find a stamp or a particular image now - it is Awesome!
