This stand has 28 large holes that measure 10mm in diameter, and 42 small holes that measure 8mm in diameter. The smaller holes will hold 1/4" round or 1/4" square design stamps. The larger holes will hold 3/8" round-shank stamps or smaller. The block of wood is 6" long by 3.25" wide. This is a great way to keep all your designs organized for easy access and viewing. This practical item is made of hard press board.
Please note, the holes in this holder will not fit the extra large stamps such as the birdcage and circle borders.
**To determine if your stamps will fit in this holder, simply measure the diameter of the round stamps, or across the diagonal for square stamps. If they measure 10mm or less they will fit in the 28 larger holes. If they are 8mm or less they will also fit nicely in the 42 smaller holes.
I loved the idea of this, but the larger design stamps really don't fit.
There is a wonderful description that includes the total size of the jumbo stamp holder with 27 holes. This description only indicates the size of the holes - but not the size of the total block. Please include that information with this item.
Thanks for the wonderful bead site - I enjoy shopping here. :-)
Thought it would be bigger block and hold some of my larger stamps, but out of all my stamps I have (which is a lot) none of my larger stamps fit in this. Only my small tiny ones fit in the holes. Also, the color of wood I got was much much darker than pictured. I know that is something minor to some, but I personally like lighter wood in my work area.
I suggest the other stamp holders - those were much more worth spending money on and hold my stamps I have :)
OUACH...I should have read carefully....this one is made from cheap MDF (hard pressed wood).
Others from Beaducation in solid wood are better...and will age better of course.
