Default Ink Pads...Classic or Craft?

I was just wondering if you had to buy only one or the other...classic or craft ink, which would you choose? I am really starting to build my SU supplies and have been getting the classic, but wonder if I should try to get the craft set too. Do you have both? Oh the decisions! LOL

I use the classic much more than the craft. I think i have a couple craft more than 3 not more than 5. If you plan on using them for fabrics then they are a great item to have. But for basic card making and scrapping classic are the way to go. Also the craft take more time to dry and are stickier. If you plan on using on tiles my suggestion is the stazon. not as sticky but permanant and dry relatively quickly. Maybe if you have not tried the craft yet, ask your demo to let you try them if she has them. They are great but it it's a personal decision.


P.S. A lot of people use craft for cards and scrapping too. (just my personal prefrance not to)

I also like to use the classic pads for basic card making but I use craft pads on textured surfaces, like painted surfaces or fabric. My 6 & 11 yr old daughters seem to like the craft pads more because if they decide to emboss it gives them time to do it. They are still learning to visualize things before they start to make them. They were my demos best customers .... thats why I had to become a demo, to support thier habit.
