HOW TO FILL AN INK PAD
Step 1: Shake your ink bottle well before filling your ink pad. This ensures that any pigment that may have settled is fully mixed. We recommend using the blank stamp pads to apply the ink (one for each color), then pat the surface of the stamp with it.
Step 2: Starting along the outer edge, squeeze a line of ink going along the perimeter of the pad. Repeat this process, going in ever smaller rectangles until the entire pad is covered with ink.
Step 3: Stop squeezing the ink bottle and use the tip to work the ink into the pad until it’s absorbed into the surface.
Store your ink pads upside down so the ink stays on the surface. Also, if it’s been awhile since you last used an ink pad, add additional ink to refresh the surface.
