BUT, if you want crisp, fine images don't get the new pads. I have found that the ink kind of spreads and that doesn't look so nice with sentiments or line images. But that's my fussy opinion.
That was the problem I had until I patted off some of the ink with a paper towel. And not all my pads needed it, some have been fine from the start. Might be worth a try for you.
