I tried this ink on one of my very first stamping projects and I absolutely love it. It's one of those brands to keep on hand in as many colors as you can get.

Rated by: Sal in D.C.
Beautiful color.
Rated by: Eileen B. in NYC, NY
The black archival ink is the most used pad in my huge stash of ink pads. I do a lot of coloring techniques, and this ink won't run or smudge. Also, if you want to stamp over an alcohol ink background, this is the best ink to use, as it doesn't react with the AI, as most other inks will.
Rated by: Joyce V. in Virginia Beach, VA
I love to stamp and have tried many ink pads. These are the best by far. The colors are vivid and they are fairly priced. Plus, they are big enough for those larger stampers. Only problem, I wish they had more colors to purchase, because I own them all (-:

I have many ink pads from several different manufacturers but these are the VERY BEST I have ever used. These inks have an awesome saturated color and do not bleed.
Rated by: Andrea B. in Bisbee, AZ
These stamp pads are wonderful-- I can stamp on wood and the ink doesn't bleed. The colors are nice and rich, too.
Rated by: Kari F. in Villa Park, IL
These stamp pads have great color and last a long time.
Rated by: Anita B. in Riverside, CA
Excellent product. I have recently taken up a new scrapbook technique I learned on DIY scrapbooking and this pad is perfect. It is very fast drying and doesn't bleed at all when you "paint" over it with the Tombow watercolor markers. Great price, great service, as always!
Rated by: Rhonda P. in Deputy, IN
The Archival ink pad gives an excellent stamped image. Very impressed with the quality of pad and ink.
Rated by: Linda K. in Wallingford, CT
Ranger Archival Ink Pads are the reliable for their longevity, brilliance and permanence. None better. I've combined with watercolors and other water-based mediums with superior results. The range of color choices is excellent as well.
Rated by: Lisa G. in Albuquerque, NM
I bought these to use over Lumiere acrylic paints and have been pleased with the images I am able to get. My only complaint is that they are not as juicy as I had hoped they would be. All in all though, I am pleased, and will order more. Next I will be trying them out on dominos, as I have heard they are great for that as well.
