A Short Pause to Ink Up!

Just a quick departure from our regularly scheduled programming, to bring you some information about Stampin' Up! Classic Stampin' Pads. Stampin' Up! came up with something new for the 2012-2013 Annual Catalog, called the Firm Foam Stampin' Pad. This ink pad features Stampin' Up! Classic ink, in a full-sized firm foam opposed to the old linen covered felt pads.

MY CLUE - Classic Stampin' Pad

The new Firm Foam Classic Stampin' Pads Provide better ink coverage for your stamps, and only require a light-tap to produce flawless images! The new Classic Stampin' Pads create wonderfully solid images, as the Firm Foam releases more ink onto your rubber stamp than the felt pads. When using the Firm Foam pad, your stamp will get an even, solid covering of ink that you may not have been able to achieve with the felt pads. If you are using the ink pad frequently you may need to re-ink your Firm Foam pad more often, but it does take less to reink it than a felt pad.

Each full-size ink pad features a crisply printed, glossy label on the top of the pad that is easier to read and that will not fade or chip off! There are labels for four languages (English, Spanish, French, and German)--just choose your language, peel it off the back, and add it to the front of the pad for easy identification! The new Firm Foam Classic Stampin' Pads use the same patented flip-top case design that stores the inking surface upside down, so the pad surface stays moist, and they are available in all colors, including our exclusive In Colors!

Five ink colors have undergone formula changes to improve functionality and color stability with the new firm foam pads. These colors are: Basic Black, Basic Gray, Marina Mist, Perfect Plum, and Tempting Turquoise. All five colors of the reformulated inks have been fully tested and approved. While using the new ink formula in the old Classic Stampin' Pads is fine, do not use the old ink formula for these five colors in the new firm foam pads. Any refills purchased after April 30, 2012, will contain the new formulated ink.
