Hi, everyone! I just wanted to do a quick post about this AWESOME ink that I recently found at Joanns -
High-density Pigment Ink by Fiskars - it's made to go in their new Push and Print Stamp Factory but I have been looking for a REALLY GOOD black ink. I was thinking that I would have to order some Stampin' Up ink but I am TERRIBLE about waiting. Ya, just call me an instant gratification junkie! LOL
So I was browsing the stamping section and this caught my eye. I like my stamped images to be really dark black and most of the other ink pads I own come out just slightly (or in some cases, more than slightly) grey. So I used a coupon and hoped for the best.
I had to try it the second I got home and, Wow - it was very dark and crisp! Yippee.... then I looked at it again and realized that I had smeared it. What??? After playing around a few times I found out that "High-density Pigment" translates to "LOOOOONG drying time". Now, remember when I told you I was a "instant gratification junkie"? A long drying time doesn't sit well with me... so I whipped out my trusty heat gun and figured out that a good 10-15 seconds will set it perfectly! :)
Sure it takes an extra step but I LOVE that the stamps are so dark and clean - it's totally worth the extra few seconds.
So now that I have enabled a few of you, do you have any products that you LOVE? I'm always looking for a new favorite item to add to my list, so I'd love to hear from you if you do.
