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
All five colors of the reformulated inks have been fully tested and approved. 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. Any

refills purchased after April 30, 2012, will contain the new formulated ink.
