Default ColorBox pad versus Versafine pad

Prithy gentle stampers, I would ask a word of advice. I have occasion to purchase a Versafine Ink Pad although I already own a ColorBox as methinks it may giveth better stamping quality than the ColorBox. Can any of you good folks verify this, mayhap from your own experience?
Be of good cheer and stamp well.
Stephanie

I use Versafine when I want a nice detailed image to stamp and will not be using Copics to color.

If you do buy a Versafine ink pad, pray tell us what you thinketh! (?)

Thank you kindly for sharing, o' Crafter 4 Life. I am encouraged to purchase this fine quality stamp pad and will indeed let you know how it stamps.

It's the best for detailed images! Is supposed to be waterproof too, but not for alcohol inks....I use it because the black produces such a crisp image. You won't regret this purchase.

I love my Verasafine and use it constantly. It works especially well with clear stamps, and also for detailed stamps.

I even use it when I am coloring a stamped image. I am a "careful colorer" lol, and don't go over the lines, just right up to them, so I seldom have any running or smears.

Also, the pad I have been using has lasted and lasted. I think you will be pleased with it.
