Introducing the NEW FIRM FOAM PADS

I've had some questions about our New Firm Foam Ink Pads lately. What's different about them? Why are they better? How will it affect my stamping? I will start by saying that the image quality is a lot crisper and the coverage is wonderful. They don't require a lot of effort {pressure} for coverage like our old style pads. We have all trained our selves to apply pressure and tap tap tap, to make sure that our image is all ink'd up so the new firm foam pad  does take a bit to get use to at first trying to remember to use a lighter hand when inking our image. Here is some helpful info provided by SU! that will be able to answer those frequently asked questions I've been receiving. 

With the introduction of the 2012-2013 annual catalog, we have made a very big change to our Stampin’ Pads.

Introducing firm foam pads! They change your stamping experience for the better.
We know you’re going to love these new Stampin’ Pads—just look at all the exciting benefits listed below:
  • Provide better ink coverage for your stamps!
  • Light-tap stamping produces flawless images!
In addition, our new Stampin’ Pads
  • Create wonderfully solid images. The Firm Foam releases more ink onto your rubber stamp than the felt pads. When using the Firm Foam pad, your stamp will get an even, solid covering of ink that you may not have been able to achieve with the felt pads. Please note: if you are using the ink pad frequently you may need to re-ink your Firm Foam pad more often.
  • Have a crisply printed, glossy label on the top of the pad that is easier to read and that will not fade or chip off!
  • Come with color name labels in all four languages (English, Spanish, French, and German)--just choose your language, peel it off the back, and add it to the side of the pad for easy identification! 
  • Use the same patented flip-top case design that stores the inking surface upside down, so the pad surface stays moist!
  • Are available in all colors, including our exclusive In Colors!

Please note: Five ink colors have undergone formula changes to improve functionality and color stability with the new firm foam pads. These colors are
  • Basic Black
  • Basic Gray
  • Marina Mist
  • Perfect Plum
  • Tempting Turquoise
 While using the new ink formula in the old Stampin’ Pads is fine, we do not recommend using the old ink formula for these five colors in the new firm foam pads.
