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.
“This ink is a true black and the best dye ink that I've found. I was hesitant to buy this one because black is black, right? Wrong! It will stay black when watered down and it doesn't fade. It stays wet longer so you can even use it to emboss. I've used it on textured paper and it makes a great impression there, too, because it's so wet. I love this one and would highly recommend it.”
Create a burnt-edge look with Black Soot Distress Ink
“All of the Distress Inks are great and can be used to create vintage looking projects. For a burnt edge look, tear along your paper, ink edges with vintage photo paper ink using a blending tool, then use black soot along the very edge . . . it creates a nice burnt look.”
