Plus, 3 FREE Gifts! | Details Here.
This bundle includes a Mini Distress Ink Storage Tin and a set of 4 Distress inks, set One, that fit into this tin, designed by Tim Holtz for Ranger Ink. This tin measures 6 1/4" x 4 1/4" x 1" and each tin holds twelve mini ink pads. This tin also contains a removable storage divider for the ink pads. The Distress ink pad set features 4 colors, Picked Raspberry, Mustard Seed, Peacock Flowers and Spiced Marmalade. Each ink pad is 1" x 1" and contains water-based, nontoxic, fade resistant, acid free ink. These are the perfect size for small stamps and to use with the small Detail Blending Tools.
After having purchased all 64 mini ink cubes, which was a considerable investment, I was disappointed that NOT a single cube produced a complete & solid one inch square of color!
I contacted BOTH Tim Holtz and Ranger Customer Service and provided them with photos of every color stamped (press & twist) on solid Neenah 110# cardstock.
It was suggested that I try the Distress Ink Refresher, which I did, thus wasting another $10.00. This did absolutely NOTHING to IMPROVE the quality of the ink cubes!
So, rather than admitting that I had a defective batch, customer service boldly insulted me stating that I was NOT using their products correctly!
Needless to say, I found their customer service to be rude, unprofessional and disrespectful. Nothing like a company that stands behind their product regardless of insulting a PAYING customer! ! !
I simply love these mini distress ink pads. As a crafter wasting space is not for me so when I saw these mini ink pads I new I had to try them... First, they stack... how cool is that !! Then the fact they are only 1 1/4" sq. is perfect and they take up so little space, it's amazing no one else thought of this !! And the size is ideal for holding when you need to ink something... no fumbling... no more getting ink all over the place. This is the size for me from now on !!
I use these for anything I would use the standard sized ink pads for. They're great for edging paper, too.
The base conveniently holds one of the foam application pads making it easy to keep one dedicated for each color.
I love these colors and with the minis I was able to add to the colors I have for a very good price. My only problem with these is that the lids do not stay on as well as the larger ones. I do not have a craft room, so I keep all of my supplies in storage that is mobile. I found that as I moved the minis around while working with them they tended to come apart very easily. So while I love the ink I can see a need to improve on the packaging to make is up to part with its lager counterpart.
