Default Brilliance Ink Pad Question

Currently using stazon to stamp on color tile/coasters. I read where one should use Brilliance ink. Is there a reason why using Brilliance would be better over another product?

I use Brilliance inks because they clean off my stamps easily. I hate the way Stazon stains my stamps so I quit using it.

My personal experience is that Stazon is much better to use. Brilliance inks fade with heat and time. My mom made tile coasters with Brilliance, but after putting a hot cup of tea on it several times, the color looked faded and washed out. Stazon images haven't had that problem.

IMHO, stained stamps are just a sign of well-loved stamps . However, I do use the Stazon cleaner, which works beautifully.

I prefer Stazon - I'm with pbft - a stained stamp is a loved stamp!!! I used to get upset if someone got ink on my stamps and then I wondered why? They work just as well with some lovin' spots on them!
