Most of my stamps are wood mounted, although I do have some clear and some on cling cushion. I find I don't use the cling and clear images nearly as often as the wood, probably because it takes more time to set them up to use. With the wood, I just pull out a drawer with a certain category, and everything I have is indexed right in front of me. My cling and clear stamps are stored either in a notebook or in a drawer with my raw rubber (that I plan to mount someday), and they're organized by company, not subject.

If I need precise placement of an image, I use my handy-dandy image placer, which is just a sheet of 5" x 6" clear plastic with a separate corner square. I stamp the image on a corner of the acrylic using the square to guide the stamp, move the image where I want it, put the square in place, take away the plastic, and stamp the image, again using the square as my guide.
We lose ourselves in books and art and find ourselves there, too.
