Pigment or Dye?

Have you ever wondered the difference between pigment or dye based inks and which you should be using? Here is some quick info and tips on both.

Dye based inks are quick drying, they absorb into the paper which makes them appear slightly transparent and softer. They are super easy to clean up so it makes the great choice to do the majority of your stamping. We offer all 40 colors in our fabulous dye based inks for only $5.25 each.

Pigment inks are slow drying, more opaque giving a much more intense color which gives almost a look of being embossed. This also means they take a little more scrubbing to clean up and I highly recommend you purchase our stamp scrubber to get your stamps clean and lasting a lifetime. Pigment inks can be heat set for quicker drying and they can be used on fabric and then heat set for permanency. Your fabric items will hold up under gentle care washing. They also are a more light fast ink which means if you're creating items that will be exposed to light they will hold up and last where dye based inks will fade with time. We offer all 40 colors in our pigment inks. They're sold in smaller cubes in a tower of ten so it's a great way to acquire all of our fabulous colors inexpensively. For only $19.95 you can receive all 10 colors in one of our collections. We also have the full sized pads in pigment inks for colonial white and white daisy.

Check out Monica and Christine as they share some great projects using our pigment inks and see the difference between dye and pigments for your self.
