Default ink pads for PTI stamps

What is the best kind of ink pad to use with Papertrey stamps? I'm thinking of investing in some new pigment inks cuz my SU inks just don't work on these. I don't want SU craft ink tho, too pricey. Do the Momento inks works okay on these? I do have good luck with my black one, or should I go with pigment? I like the colors in the Dew Drops.

Memento inks work great with PTI stamps. So do Palette, Versafine, chalk inks, Vivid, CTMH, and I'm sure others will list some more options.
I mostly use Memento and Palette for clear stamps. HTH

I've had trouble with the chalk inks staining really bad. Otherwise, I really love chalk inks for rubber stamps,

For dye ink, I love Momento with PTI. But I recently found Amuse inks and they are just divine with PTI stamps. They are a pigment ink which I usually dislike, but these stamp wonderfully!

Someone on the PTI forum has a list of Amuse inks that match or coordinate with PTI colors.

HTH~

I use SU inks with PTI stamps with one caveat. If it's a stamp with a large surface area, I tend to only use Amuse, Fresh Ink, or Versamagic ink pads.

But I would definitely try your SU inks on your PTI stamps. I've seen some folks get really good results!

Memento inks work great with PTI; another favorite is Brilliance ink. I've also used, with great success, Versacolor (pigment) and Versamagic (chalk).

My favorite go to for clear stamps is Palette True black. It comes off so well that you can hardly tell you used the stamp. That being said...I have about all the inks mentioned for one reason or another.
blessings.

Thanks for all the info, ladies. I ordered both of the Momento 12 packs for myself for Christmas! I wish they had CS to match their ink! LOVE the colors!
