Default ink pads..

No, you don't have to replace all those! I would just get a few colors to demo with..i think there are some ink pads that come with the kit!

I'll warn you though, once you start using the new ones, you will probably want them all. I have about 1/2 and 1/2, and I prefer the new ones by far. So I am going to slowly replace the old with new. It's just easier to talk up the new pads if your customers can actually see them, but I do use the old ones if that's all I have.

Default new pads

i do have about 3 of the new style pads...can't quite remember how i got them....i do like them better, but i can store the old ones easier...i use an old cassette tape holder, it has pull out drawers, and stores nicely. I know there are the spinner racks for the new pads, but I have heard they aren't too handy if you are traveling with them...so I would assume that's not good for a demo?!? any thoughts on this? thanks for the comments!

I'm a demo and I have some old style ink pads and some new style ink pads. I like the new style much better! But, I don't hesitate to bring the old style to a demonstration (so long as I also have the new ones to show). That way, I can show the customers just how much better the new style are! And since the old style ink pads are similar to many other brands of ink, I can also show how the SU ink pads are better.

As for replacing your old style ink pads - think how many stamps you could buy with that money!!!

I'm not a demo, but my preference in general is the older ones, mainly because they're easier to open and close. The new ones are such a hassle to close, but I like them when I need a bigger size or when I want to do direct to paper. No need to remove the lid. So they both have positives and negatives, IMO.

I demo with both styles and no one seems to mind at all. I do THO workshops so I actually prefer to use the old ones at the workshops because people aren't always careful.

I'm a new demo and new to SU so all my pads are new style. I LOVE them and i find that this is one of the biggest selling points in my workshops. People see the quality and dedication to best design that SU puts into their products. When I show the pads, I get a WOW every time! I alos love that I can just toss them in my "shoe boxes" for demos and there is no chance of it opening in transit.

That's a good point, SeattleStamper. I never thought about their ability to stay closed in transit. Can you tell I don't travel much? lol!

my upline has all the old and all the new...

she demo's w/ her new but carreies teh old ones to the party for the guest to use for their make n takes. This way "new" stampers that don't know how to clean them won't mess up her good pads!

I got a great portable cd carrier that holds all 48 pads in 4 sections - divided by color family. It zippers shut. Awesome...I'll have to see if I can find it. I think I got if for around $20 online.

I got started stamping after they changed the pads, so I've never used the old ones. I think I remember my upline telling me that some of the colors changed a bit, so you might want to check up on that.

I also have both styles. I really like the new ones better but it is a pain when you can't close a new one. I have almost all the colors in pad but I wish I would have been introduced to stampin spots in the beginning. I am just now buying all of them and I love them. Using them to demo normally gets lots of orders for them.

Default Proudly use old style pads...

When I'm asked why I have different styles of stamp pads people are very impressed that I am using pads from 1998, when I first purchased SU stuff!!! I have a mix, probably 1/2 and 1/2, but still use the old style...use em' to your advantage!
