The Tuxedo Black Memento Dye Ink Pad by Tsukineko is fast-drying, fade-resistant, and permanent when dry. It delivers fine impressions and very even coverage. The ink is water-based, acid-free, and non-toxic. The raised inked area is 3" x 1.75" which allows you to ink any size stamp. This ink will not smear when used with Copic alcohol markers making this an inkpad of choice for many artists.
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!
This ink is fantastic to use with Copic markers. I've tried numerous brands of permanent ink, and this is the only one that doesn't break down and smear when a Copic marker is used over it. When first opened, the pad is super juicy so you need to be very light handed when applying to stamps. I use 'Ranger Archival Ink Cleaner' to clean up my stamps after using this product, and it works well - there isn't any staining left on the stamp. So far, I'm very happy with Memento ink for use with Copic markers.
I have only a few distress ink pads but wanted to try other kinds of ink pads. I bought this Fade Resistant Dye Ink Pad - Tuxedo Black for a project and love the results I get in my journal pages. I bought other colors too. They add a vibrant color effect which looks great. Will certainly buy more colors
I bought this stamp pad because I heard a crafter on youtube say it was good when working with alcohol brush markers! I gotta say... it's work perfectly so far with no smearing! Great product, stamps cleanly!
