No they are stuck to the outside of a plastic pocket. Inside is some card to keep it firm. I use Xyron repositionable glue on the back of the rubber.
for clear stamps I have stuck the acetate on the plastic folder and kept the stamps on this tho for newer ones i am keeping them upright in a box

Are they the sort that have a number of plastic pockets inside?
this could be a way of micro organising mine as even tho i have an index on the outside I still often hunt for what I want.

I missed this thread - very interesting to see how you all go about storing your stamps.  I have just started mounting stamps on EZ Mount/Kling on and sticking them onto the stamp packing that I have laminated.  It works a treat so far.  However, do you store your stamps by theme or by manufacturer?

I've just got some EZ Mount Laminated Sheets for storing stamps, they were 60p each which I thought was a reasonable price.  Trying to think of how to organise them now.

I think I am going to stick with storing them by manufacturer and keep a log of themes, i.e Christmas. Halloween, flora, fauna, etc.  

I have bought some A4 storage boxes by Tuff which are quite pricey and having seen Becky's I shall have to take myself off to Poundland do see what they can offer me!
