Printworks are the regular, solid colored pads that we carry. They are rich
in color, hold a lot of ink and match the papers and stickers in the
Printworks line. They come in 2 sizes, regular and small cube size. All
inkpads are raised, so you can ink a large stamp with even a small ink cube.
As an added bonus, we will re-ink your Designer Ink pads (up to 2 a month)
free on the first business Monday of the month. Re-inkers are available for
purchase if you don't want to wait for the free re-inking day.
Dye-Based Inks are also available in a
Pigment-Based Inkpads - Encore and Colorbox are the two pigment inkpad
companies we stock. Pigment ink is creamy, opaque ink that stays wet on
your paper longer for embossing or can be left directly on the paper to dry,
but it just takes a little longer than the dye-based variety. The pigment
pads come in a long list of colors and combinations, with some of them being
multi-colored pads. Re-inkers are also available.
Fabric Ink - There are several inks that will work on fabric and one
brand that we carry is Fabrico. It is labeled as both a fabric ink and a
craft ink, meaning that it is also fine for paper, or walls, or a number of
different surfaces. It comes in a nice selection of colors and the pads are
also raised, so it won't make any difference the size of your stamp. There
are matching Fabrico markers that are dual-ended and will further color your
stamped image on fabric.
Cleaners - Like the different types of ink one uses, you also need
to use the correct cleaner for that ink. Some are strictly for dye-based non-permanent inks and some are designed to remove even permanent dye-based ink
from your stamps. We have several brands and one from Judi-Kins that comes
in the economy size. A great buy!!!
Resist Ink - The newest type of ink. It resists dye-based ink wherever the Resist Ink
has been stamped.
