I found this Apple Green ink to be very rich in color and true to the sample color shown with this product. The ink pad was nice and juicy, too. The ink was somewhat unpredictable in its transference from the stamps to the paper/card stock. Sometimes the coverage was good and other times it was very splotchy. I tested it with both photopolymer and red rubber stamps on a variety of papers and card stock. The results seemed to be pretty much equal between the photopolymer and the red rubber stamps.
The one true negative with this ink is that it is difficult to clean from the stamps. Vigorous cleaning using a baby wipe was not enough to remove all of the pigment or dye from the stamps. Even when I thought I had finally removed the ink, in subsequent stamping with the same stamps using other inks, the dye from the Apple Green ink tainted the stamped images. It would take multiple stampings with other inks to finally remove the last of the Apple Green ink. I do not have a dedicated stamp cleaner, so I cannot comment on how well a stamp cleaning product would work for removing the ink from the stamps.
