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.
“if you want to stamp or distress in cocoa, you MUST have this ink pad. The color is saturated and really makes your stamping pop. I only use this one anymore, and it washes off my clear stamps without staining, no problem.”
“One of the very first techniques I learned in scrapbooking was inking and distressing. I use this ink all the to ink the edges of my paper. I also like to tear and curl the edges sometimes before I ink.”
“This is one of my favorite colors of the distress ink line. It's quite dark so it's not all-purpose but is a very rich color of dark brown. These ink pads are great because they dry quickly but can be used with a spray of water to get a nice look. There are so many ways to use this ink...best thing for inspiration is Tim Holtz's blog!”
