Did you know Stampin’ Up! has two sizes of ink pads? Along with the standard size ink pads, they also have Stampin’ Spots, in both Classic and Craft ink. They are about 1” square and come in sets of 10 for each Color Collection. Neutrals only have 8 in the Classic set, as there is no Classic ink in Very Vanilla and Whisper White. The spots are listed in the bottom half of the Color Collection pages (177-180) in the Idea Book & Catalog, under the Assortments heading and on page 202. Classic Spots are $19.95 (15.95 for Neutrals) and Craft Spots are $21.95.
Ink Pad / Ink Spot
Spots are a less expensive alternative for buying all of the colors. I have lots of customers who have purchased the spots to see which colors they use the most, then buy those colors in the full size pads. Some people buy the Spots so they can take them with to stamp away from home. They are much easier to transport than full size pads. I have a lot of the Craft Spots since we no longer carry the full size Craft pads in every color. I store them in a stamp box, which is great for keeping them together, storing them, transporting them and being able to see what I have.
