5 Best Buddy Bags for ink pads

Do you stamp a little or stamp a lot? Stamp at home or stamp away? Always use the same brand of ink or like to mix it up?

Whatever the case may be, our Buddy Bags might just be the perfect solution for your ink pad storage.  They’re clear, lightweight and inexpensive.

There are many different brands of ink pads, but many are similar in size.  Here are the best Buddy Bag options for each of the most popular sizes.

1 – Leanne Buddy Bag

Stephanie Barnard, Colorbox, Catherine Pooler, and Fun Stamper’s Journey

These are all similar in size.  If you’ve own lots of a single brand, or a mix of all of these brands, try the Leanne Buddy Bag.  She’s big and roomy, so she’ll hold up to 30 ink pads.

Quick Quotes – The Leanne Bag will hold up to 50 Quick Quotes ink pads.

2 – Edna Buddy Bag

Tim Holtz Distress or Oxide Inks

These square ink pads stack together nicely.  Our Edna Buddy Bag will hold 19 of them.  Here’s a tip – if you like to label your TH inks on the edges like I do, put the label on them upside down. That way, when you store them, the label will actually be right side up. Stand the Edna bag up on its end to store your inks flat.

Quick Quotes Powder Puff Ins

Edna is a great solution for these as well.  She’ll hold 24-30 QQPP inks.

3 – Sue Buddy Bag

Stampin’ UP Ink pads

Stampin’ Up ink pads are some of the largest in the industry.  The Sue Buddy Bag will hold 10 SU ink pads.

4 – Barbara Buddy Bag

Close to my heart – magnetic ink pads

The Barbara Bag will hold 10 Close to my heart magnetic ink pads.  There are two interior boxes in the Barbara Bag to help keep your inks organized. Store this bag flat to keep your ink pads flat.

5 – Shelly Buddy Bag

Small ink pads like Memento Tear Drop and TH Distress minis.

This little bag is a powerhouse for small ink pad storage.  Shelly will hold 18 teardrops, 22 TH Distress minis, and 18 cat eye inks.

  1. Hello,
    I love Leanne and Monica buddy bags. Both keep my ink pads in place. Thanks a lot! I would like one buddy bag with the length of Leanne (12.5″) and Monica size 3.75″ diameter x 4.25″ tall with one tray. I enjoy participate in crop events, and normally I carry several full ink pads. Most of my ink pads fits in Monica buddy bag but I would need several Monica buddy bags to carry to a crop event. Due to a limited space in crops, I would rather grab one or couple of buddy bags with the suggested dimension, put in a bag and go. Most of my inkpads are full size from Memento, hero arts and Gina K designs. It is my humble suggestion.

  2. Please, disregard the previous comment. I recently found Stephanie buddy bag that seems to have the closest measurement mentioned above. Definitively, I am excited to try the Stephanie buddy bag once it will be available at the online store. Thank you, Tiffany.
