I love this ink pad. It leaves a perfect impression on almost any surface. Actually, I have yet to find a surface that it does not work on. I love the smell as it is almost like candy. It does dry fairly quickly on the surface that you are stamping on. The one tip that I have found with this ink pad is related to stamping on transparencies. When you use this ink, generously ink your stamp and make sure to press straight down onto the transparency. Do this with a medium amount of pressure, or the stamp will wiggle and ruin your image. Have fun working with this ink, I know I sure do.
I have to say this is my top 10 favourite ink. The Staz-On black pad is the first thing I pack for crops! You can apply it to almost all surfaces (including acetate, transparencies and shrinky dink material). This solvent ink is crisp, opaque and thick. The raised ink pad allows you to ink stamps and edges of paper extremely easily. This ink dries quickly and you will never have it smear on slick or shiny surfaces. This is my number one black ink choice!
I love this ink so much! I use it for almost every lo I do! It is the best because it staz on (lol) everything! Also I love it because it dries so quickly....for me that is great because I have ruined many lo's because im in such a hurry to move on to the next part! Try it! You will love it too!
I own every color of the StazOn ink pads because they are the only ink that will stay on just about anything. I always (well, almost always) stamp away from my drawing table with this ink because it is so permanent and I tend to get ink everywhere when I stamp. Just love that I have more options with StazOn. If you only get one color get black and brown (okay, I couldn't decide which to recommend). I got the refill too; I don't ever want to run dry.

I really like the StazOn black ink, even though I'm a huge fan of browns. It sticks to everything so it lets me distress metal and give it an antique like look and I don't have to worry about it rubbing right off. The black color is a true black too... it doesn't give off a blueish hue like some other inkpads which is a HUGE plus... I always get bummed to get a new black ink pad only to find out it stamps with a blueish tone. No worries with that here!!!
