Ranger was founded in 1929 and originally manufactured an exclusive line of commercial ink products for the U.S. banking industry. In 1979, Ranger developed the first art stamp pads in unique, vibrant colors. Until 1998, Ranger¹s primary business was private label products for stamp manufacturers. Ranger then began marketing product lines of its own beginning with inks and eventually developing embossing powders. With a continuous focus on innovation, successful lines such as the Adirondack® and Distress™ family of products, Perfect Pearls™ pigment powders and Melt Art® products have become popular worldwide.
“I used this to emboss slender, bare trees on a darker background for a beautiful card for fall. I layered unembossed, pale (second stamping to remove some ink) bare trees behind these using Brilliance ink in beige to give some depth to the scene.”
“I am now undecided about this one and another one....but I think I like the "antique" look that this one seems to promise. I think this is a better choice for me....either way I know whichever I choose will be good since it;s Tim Holtz.”
“I was looking for unique colors to emboss with, and found it with this colloction! There are many beautiful, muted shades, and can be layered with other stamp colors underneath. Works well with a bold stamp, distress look doesn't show with detailed stamps. I have all the colors!”
“They give an aged worn look after heat embossing and rubbing lightly. Great look for the vintage appearance so popular now.
They work well on alphabet stamping that has heavier lines. I have found that too much of the powder rubs away on letters with very fine lines.”
