I had tried to devise my own "system" -- but couldn't find the right size cards/etc. to use for the backing.
Finally found these, and decided to give them a try.
So far, they're working reasonably well. Almost all my dies are smaller: no larger than what would fit on an A2 (4.25" x 5.5") card, so I haven't run into any issues with larger dies since I don't own any. I can store two sets of Spellbinders Nestabilities on each sheet, but I do have to be careful when "flipping" through the sheets; otherwise, one or more of the larger ones will pop loose.
Also, one brand of dies that I use uses clear plastic on some of their dies (particularly the "banner" dies) so you can see through them to line up your die with a stamped sentiment or whatever, and this plastic interferes with the "stick-ability" from a magent standpoint. I may just remove the plastic, since it really serves no useful purpose.
Some have mentioned the "curling" -- and I've found this in several of the magnetic sheets, but not all of them. Not sure what causes it, but for now, I'm using those for my smaller dies, and using the really flat sheets for my larger dies. Also, I've had some luck putting a "curled" sheet between two heavy-weight cookie sheets, placing a few books under the stack and then piling a bunch of books on the top sheet, and leaving it there for a few days (the "sandwich" from the bottom up would be: couple of books, cookie sheet, magnetic sheet, cookie sheet, bunch of books) -- really seems to flatten it out.
Anyway, this is my "storage choice" for metal dies for now, until/unless something better comes along. I've been able to find the refill pages cheaper elsewhere, but Amazon's price on the case is the best I've found so far.
I am SO happy I did!! I was using the plastic packages that the dies came in, which resulted in all the dies being in a pile at the bottom of the package and a lot of time spent finding what I needed. These cases have saved me a ton of time and energy, making it possible for to me to go right to the die I need, when I need it. I now have 2 storage cases, purchased a package of extra magnetic sheets and am ready to buy another case & set of sheets. I have all my florals & decorative dies in one and basic shapes (scalloped circles, stars, frames,etc. ) in another. My third will be for organizing the letters, numbers, & word dies I bought a few months ago.
Someone before me mentioned that her magnetic sheets were bent when she received them. I did too, it was from the plastic wrap they used to keep the sheets together in the case. I put my dies on the sheets, stacked them horizontally (laying flat), and stored them that way for the first few weeks and they flattened out with no problems.
The person who said that her dies didn't stick to the sheets should probably check to make sure she was using the right side. All of the 3 packs of sheets that I've gotten are very strongly magnetized.
It's true that some of the really big dies won't fit in these cases but we're talking dies that are 6.5" circles or larger. Hopefully,ArtBin will make some larger cases in the future!! :-D This is easily the most ingenious & efficient ways to store all of your metal cutting dies.
