I bought this because I read that StazOn would mess up Copics. Normally, I stamped my images with StazOn and loved it. However, after trying Memento (I know it's the same company), I'll be buying Memento from now on since I only need to stamp cardstock. The pad is very "juicy," which is a word that I heard others use to describe it, but I never knew why they would use that term until I tried it myself. My images stamp clearly, and the black is genuinely black and not one of those faded versions. It looks wonderful, and I haven't had any issues with it!
