What is the difference between dye, pigment and hybrid ink?
Dye inks are water-based and literally dye your paper. The ink is soaked up by the paper or cardstock so they tend to dry fast. Pigment inks are made of tiny particles that will sit on top of your paper and will take a longer time to dry. They tend to be brighter, with a denser saturation of color and work well with dark colors of cardstock. They are also great for heat embossing since they stay wet longer. Hybrid inks are the best of the two ink types (dye and pigment) as they have properties of both inks. They also tend to be more translucent in their appearance. Hybrid inks are suitable for all skill levels of crafters due to their compatibility with multiple mediums and surfaces.
What are color families?
The Scrapbook.com Hybrid Inks are designed in color families. Each color family has four individual colors numbered 1 through 4 (1 being the lightest shade in the group and 4 being the darkest shade of the group). Color families are an extremely important aspect of layered stamping because each of the four colors coordinates together to achieve a dimensional, layered look. Every Hybrid Ink Pad has the color family name and the color family number clearly labeled on the lid along with the name of the ink pad and the ink shade. NOTE: The 1 color for some color families is designed to be an incredibly light whisper of a shade for that group.

Nice Halloween/Autumn Orange color. The color on the site is more true to the color than the one printed on the pad itself. My only wish is that it was a bit easier to hold onto as I like to hold the pad and dab the ink onto the stamp...the side lip is pretty 'low' so its easy to get ink on your fingers....then transfer to your project if not careful. For the price though, you can't beat it.
I was hesitant to buy a "Hybrid" ink pad because I had never even heard of one, let alone try one. The selection of colors lured me followed by the affordable price. I have to say, I was blown away when the ink pad arrived! The color was true to what was advertised and the quality and performance of the ink is fantastic. This ink pad works as well as any other dye based ink pad. This is not a distressed ink product, but if you are looking for a good ink pad for stamping and shading, this is a great product for the price.
