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.

I love this product line. I'm kind of new to stamping and sometimes I've not been happy with the outcome of some inks. This is what I've been looking for. The colors remain bright when they dry, and there is minimal bleed as well. For me, this is what I'm looking for - a nice, solid, colorful ink.
I received my Cyan Group purchase last night and just had to use them asap. Using my Tim Holtz Stamp Platform and the Beautiful Day stamp set by Altenew I was able to make a quick card for a coworker. I stamped each image twice to get a really crisp imprint.
For once I didn't have to dig through my inks to try to find a selection of ink that might go together, only for them to be a dud by the fourth stamp layer. The fact that each color is labeled 1-4 from lightest color to darkest in the group is a great time-saver when I'm in the grove and stamping several images at the same time.
I only have 3 of the Scrapbook.com ink groups so far and I'm absolutely going to buy more!
