Default Your favorite white ink

Hi folks! I was wondering what the best white ink for general use may be. I have stazon, but the reinkining and cleaning is a bit off putting to me. I would like to keep that to use on my slick surfaces, but am thinking of buying an ink pad for my typical cardstock type surfaces. Anyone have a favorite crisp white ink? Thanks!

My favorite is Hero Arts, Unicorn. I've used it on colored cardstock and it leaves a really white, crisp image. It's a pigment ink, but doesn't take long to dry.

YES! Hero Arts Unicorn. Stamps on black and light, and everything in between.

Stampin Up Whisper White Craft Ink. It's my go to and you can get a bottle of refill ink to freshen your pad as needed. In my case it's not very often and I use it on a good 10 cards a week.

I like hero arts, but my ink pad is so juicy that my stamp yes over-inked. I've tried stamping it off on a scrap paper, but may have to do that another time or two. It does leave a nice white image, so I'll just have to play around with it a while.

I have generally had the best results using a Versamark/ clear embossing pad, and WOW! Opaque Bright White Embossing powder, which is available in Regular and Superfine Detail.
I also like the Hampton Arts White, and Studio G. I hate the white Staz-on with a passion, I'm afraid. As well as the other Opaque pastels they brought out. Those are pads I wish I'd never bothered with!

I watched a video on comparing white pads. Avery Elle pigment pad was theirs. I have tried Stazon and it is "meh" and the ink dries on the pad quickly (That might be why it included a reinker). I bought Stampin Ups and a reinker. I have not given it a try yet. Sounds Like Hero Arts will get my money next, Thanks for asking the question and thanks all for giving a prompt reply.

I agree, southgirl, I hate how the Staz-on pad needs reinking before every use. the other pastel colours are exactly the same.

Wow folks! Thanks for all these suggestions! The "fun stampers journey whipped cream" I haven't heard of. Can I buy it at my local Michaels or Hobby Lobby? The hero arts I think may be at my local store, but I'm not sure. Thanks again!!!!! -Angie

FSJ is direct sales, so you would need to contact a Journey Coach to purchase.
