Default Inks: What is the difference?

What exactly is the difference between Stazon ink and India ink? I just purchased the Stampers' Sampler Take Ten issue, and saw India ink advertised and was wondering what this is. I want to purchase a black ink that would not bleed when I do watercoloring and was considering Stazon, but now I saw India and was wondering what the difference is. Thanks for your help!

Stazon is a trademark for a solvent ink product manufactured byTsukineko.
Their website describes it as:

StāzOn is our only solvent-based inkpad, designed for decorating non-porous surfaces such as glass, metal, shrink plastic, cellophane, aluminum foil, leather and acrylic. Thanks to its mild smell, StāzOn is much safer to use than other permanent inks. It’s also much easier to use since there is no need to re-ink the pad before each use. Inkers are available for all 10 colors to periodically rejuvenate dry edges. For everything from industrial projects to garden art, and home décor, StāzOn is sure to become a classic! StazOn Cleaner is specially formulated to clean and condition your stamps after use with StāzOn ink pads. Use StāzOn with our Sponge Daubers and Fantastix applicators for easy sponging techniques! For inkers, please go to Accessories section.


India ink is used in calligraphy, and the old fashioned stuff was made from carbon/lampblack. I think of it as an old fashioned lettering ink. I don't believe it is a name-brand, but a description of a type of old style ink.
