It recently came to my attention that I did not do enough to highlight the differences between the retired and magnetic closure style of Exclusive Inks™ Stamp Pads. This post is designed to correct that.
The magnetic style of Exclusive Inks™ Stamp Pads were introduced in Annual Inspirations 2016-2017. You will find them on pages 94–99. See all of the available colors at my Online Business Address. The ink type has not changed, just the stamp pad case.
The inked area is still in the lid of the stamp pad, so you continue to store the stamp pads with the label facing up.
The magnetic closure holds the lid on the stamp pad. The lids on the magnetic closure style of Exclusive Inks™ Stamp Pads come completely off of the stamp pad.
The magnetic closure Exclusive Inks™ Stamp Pads are also a little larger than the older style.
The magnetic closure style of Exclusive Inks™ Stamp Pads are about ¼" wider and about ¾" longer.
The larger size of the stamp pad means if you use the Exclusive Inks™ Organizer (Z4131) or the Exclusive Inks™ Stamp Pad Tower (Z4132) that retired in 2015 (to see what these products look like visit this post), the magnetic closure style pads will not fit.
The magnetic closure Exclusive Inks™ Stamp Pads will fit in the Medium Organizer (Z4139) and the Workspace Wonder™ Stamp Pad Stack (Z5104). If you use the Medium Organizer, a great suggestion I read online is to place a piece of ribbon under the stack to lift the pads out by holding the ribbon ends.
If you are interested in using the Workspace Wonder™ Stamp Pad Stack (Z5104) for storage, please visit yesterday's blog post to learn how you can get several pieces of Workspace Wonder™ at half off when you host a Gathering that reaches the third level for hostess rewards (sales over $350 before taxes and shipping).
