I found this ink pad to be slightly drier upon opening than the other Ranger ink pads I have recently purchased. Also, the Cobalt color was darker than I anticipated, but that is an online buyer error. I was hoping for a brighter blue for my peacock bird stamps that I have coming. I may need to order another color to get the more vibrant pop of color I was hoping for. This color looks black on all of my envelopes but bright white.
This ink pad, like all Ranger Archival Ink Pads, has a nice fabric, threaded sort of top. Not a spongy or fleecy top. It's more firm, so you aren't going to make a mess while trying to load your stamp with ink. I like that a lot. The ink doesn't get anywhere on the stamp, except the impressionable area.
What I am doing with my stamps and stamp pads, is stamping up letters and postcards for mail use, so I want waterproof inks. You never know what is going to happen during delivery and with mail sitting in mailboxes - rain, hurricanes, even! So I don't want the stamped ink to blur all over the letters and make a big unreadable or undeliverable mess. I pay a little more for these ink pads for that reason.
When I stamp, I stamp a few times around the pad, to make sure the stamp is good and inked, make the impression that I want onto the envelope or wherever I'm about to stamp, and then I have a blotter (a couple of scrap pieces of paper handy) and stamp several times until the stamper comes clean so that the ink doesn't dry onto the stamp. Sometimes I'll have several letters and postcards going out at once, and I'll do a few different colors and stamps at once.
This is the smallest pad I have by this company so far. I'd have bought the Jumbo size if they had if available in this color. This pad measures 3 1/4" wide by 2". I do have several smaller stamps. Because of the firmness I mentioned, you can stamp larger stamps with this pad, you just have to stamp them in sections. Stamp the first quadrant, then another, until you've gotten the whole stamp inked. However, as I also mentioned, this ink pad wasn't as wet as other ink pads of this brand, and I could have done well to have gotten a bottle of refill ink at the same time as this purchase. I will likely look for a brighter blue for my peacock stamps, though.
Thank you for taking the time to read my review, I hope you've found it helpful!
There's not much ink on it, either. Luckily, I also ordered a bottle of Archival Ink in the same color. On the downside here is that when used the ink leaks under the cap and around the bottle's neck. Ruined clothes and books are in my future.
This was to have been used for an Ex Libris stamp. You only get one shot stamping a page in a book. Looks like I'm going another route here.
