I love this ink pad. It leaves a perfect impression on almost any surface. Actually, I have yet to find a surface that it does not work on. I love the smell as it is almost like candy. It does dry fairly quickly on the surface that you are stamping on. The one tip that I have found with this ink pad is related to stamping on transparencies. When you use this ink, generously ink your stamp and make sure to press straight down onto the transparency. Do this with a medium amount of pressure, or the stamp will wiggle and ruin your image. Have fun working with this ink, I know I sure do.
I absolutely LOVE the StazOn inks, the black especially. When it says that it will staz on... it seriously means it. This ink will stay on anything it touches, even your hands and clothes. :-) I use it to stamp and ink edges the most. If you stamp with this ink, it will stain. I use a baby wipe to get most of it off though. This is not a distressing ink and does not blend well. Tim Holtz inks are better if you want to blend. I cannot say enough good things about this ink though. I use it on most of my layouts and cards!
I own every color of the StazOn ink pads because they are the only ink that will stay on just about anything. I always (well, almost always) stamp away from my drawing table with this ink because it is so permanent and I tend to get ink everywhere when I stamp. Just love that I have more options with StazOn. If you only get one color get black and brown (okay, I couldn't decide which to recommend). I got the refill too; I don't ever want to run dry.

I have to say this is my top 10 favourite ink. The Staz-On black pad is the first thing I pack for crops! You can apply it to almost all surfaces (including acetate, transparencies and shrinky dink material). This solvent ink is crisp, opaque and thick. The raised ink pad allows you to ink stamps and edges of paper extremely easily. This ink dries quickly and you will never have it smear on slick or shiny surfaces. This is my number one black ink choice!
