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 am so happy with all the Distress Inks. The colors are beautiful and they each compliment the others in this line. They are unique dye inks in that stay wet long enough to emboss and they work wonderfully in direct to paper applications because they allow for blending. Worn Lipstick is a one of the first colors I reach for.”
“You can never go wrong with Tim Holtz distress inkpads. It's another one of the products that the possibilities are endless. I have used these inks for everything from card making to distressing wooden frames to go along with my photo layouts of older pictures.”
