Default white craft ink vs. Staz-on white

I saw a beautiful card in the gallery today. The person said they had used white craft ink on acetate and that it took forever to dry. Does the Staz-on dry that much faster? I don't know as I don't have any Staz-on inks. I love the acetate cards, but if the craft ink smears, I will hate making them!

Craft ink is a pigment ink for a porous surface. It will take forever to dry on acetate, because acetate is not a porous surface.

Stazon would be a better choice for acetate because it is solvent based and specifically made to work on non-porous surfaces (like acetate].

Thank you very much! I had no idea what the differences were!

The Stazon white dries very fast on acetate. You do have to reink that stamp pad often though because it also dries out fast and it is also very hard to clean the stamps. My stazon cleaner didn't clean it off the snow flake stamps completely and I used a brush.

Stazon does dry much faster. Luckygirl has it right. I made 40 aceate cards this year and was able to just keep on with the assembling line. Didn't have to stop to let them dry.

As far as for cleaning the stazon off I found this cleaner by papertrey that is AMAZING!!! It works. It's called Ultra clean. www.papertrey.com

Good luck

Oh good! I have some of this and haven't used it yet. Now I gotta go find something non-porous to stamp!
