Confused about inks? We had an inkling.
The huge variety of ink pads on the market is very confusing to stampers, scrapbookers and crafters. Often it’s the same ink in a different box with a different name. Stewart Superior is stamping out the confusion by focusing on several multipurpose, multi-surface premium quality inks. By making our inks work on more surfaces for more purposes it’s much simpler to find the right ink for the right project!
Since Stewart Superior’s ink pads are more versatile - you get more value for your money. Instead of buying an ink pad just for embossing - you can also use it on fabrics, wood, leather, clay, shrink plastic and more. Don't be afraid to experiment and try our inks for different purposes and surfaces. The creativity and resourcefulness of our customers has lead to many great techniques and new applications for our products!
