Default Stazon or Palette Noir?

Which inkpad would you recommend, Stazon Jet Black or Palette Noir? I understand both do not bleed, but how is one better than the other?

The Palette inks work better than Stazon if you like to use the oderless mineral spirits with Prismacolors. Since Stazon is solvent based, and OMS is a solvent, well, the Stazon just smears.

I like the Palette Noir better. It can be used much the same as Stazon, doesn't bleed, and it doesn't smell. I like the Stazon smell, but something tells me it can't be all that good to sniff solvent like that too much.

I think Noir is a truer black than stazon black. It's a fantastic ink.

Another yes vote for Palette Noir. I use it primarily when stamping an image to color in. I find it dries faster as well when stamped on glossier surfaces.

Another vote for Palette Noir here! And I've had my pad for about 3 years, and it's still going strong. Very good quality.

Love my palette noir! Just make sure it's completely dry before you watercolor or, like any wet ink, it'll smear. If I'm in a hurry I'll usually run my heat gun over it to be sure.

Palette Noir too! Since I got Palette Noir, I mostly just use my StazOn for tiles and for stamping the back of my EZ Mount.

Palette cleans off your stamps easier then staz on too. I don't use my staz on at all now, unless someone specifically asks for it on some images I stamp for them. Most are ok with palette, some just want staz on.

Great!! Can you find the Palette Noir inkpad at Michael's or Hobby Lobby? I would hate to pay for shipping online if I can find it locally. I don't see any at my scrapbook store.

Pallette noir if you are on paper. Stazon if you are on another surface.

Another vote for Palette Noir.. I have both.. switched to Palette Hybrid Noir, because Stazon was smearing when I used Gamsol. I've also just discovered that Stazon is smearing with Copic markers.. Palette does not. Here is where I found Palette.. plus they have refills.

Another vote for the Palette Noir!

I have tried them all, this is by far the best all round black ink!

I love the Pallete Noir too! I wonder if they have a cool brown shade of ink? Sometimes I like the outline in brown and then color it in.

they do have a great brown....burnt umber. I love that color and tend to use it as much as I use the black. I also love their charcoal which I just bought. A bit of a softer black. I am loving the Palette line of inks!

There was a clearance sale on a bunch of Palette Hybrid inkpads at the local scrapbook store, I didn't buy any because I was specifically looking for BLACK. I don't know if it's worth getting other colors? I usually use the SU! Classic ink pads

Palette Noir is AWESOME! You can also get it here, they're wonderful! As far as local stores, I've searched high and wide, with no luck. You won't regret it.

I love my Palette Noir! I use it anytime I need black ink, I still use my StayzOn with dominos and tiles but other than that it's the Palette pads for me

Oh, get them Wendy! The thing I love about palette is that I can stamp in pink or blue or purple and color it - no smudges! I'm working on collecting all of the spots. I only have the noir in the full sized pad.

Palette. You need Noir, Burnt Umber and Charcoal. The colors I don't know about but you definitely need those three neutrals.
