If you want to stamp pigment ink on glossy paper, you must heat-set it with an embossing gun for it to dry. Because pigment ink stays wet for so long, it's perfect for Heat Embossing!
One way or another, how do you keep stamp ink from smearing?
If you are currently using a "pigment" ink you will need to use a clear embossing powder, heated with a heat gun, to keep it from smearing OR use the versa mark pad and black embossing powder for a glossy and permanent finish.
In addition to that, how do you dry stamp ink on glossy paper? Pigment ink won't dry on glossy paper and other non-absorbent surfaces, so it must be heat set onto materials with this type of finish. Heat set tool is great. Pigment ink is a thick and creamy ink that is typically more opaque.
In spite of everything, what are the best ink pads?
A simple way to clean rubber stamps is by using a spray bottle with luke warm water. You don't need to add soap to the water as long as you are using a water-soluble ink such as Color Box, Versa Mark, Versa Magic or Brilliance stamp pads. Spritz water onto the rubber portion of the stamp and dab with a paper towel.
