I agree - yes for me too. I previously only had the Stampin' Spots in the basic colors, so having allllll the colors in the new juicier pads has been amazing! No ink lines on my stamped image, no messing with the tiny spots to ink a large image, and consistent coloring across larger stamps. I have not bought the gray or black due to the warnings about inconsistencies, but have bought 3 full color families and only have had one so far that has been too juicy. The rest are great.
