In 2021 I spent five months of studio production on a 50 sq ft heavily stamped textile. Just two of these inkpads were enough for that project. Because my main medium as an artist is stamping and typewriting on fabric, I’ve had occasion to use industrial ink and inkpads for some projects. I think the yellow owl pad are a lot easier to use and less expensive than industrial options, and a good product for most folks. That’s why I use yellow owl inkpads in my workshops about mark making on fabric. It’s even decently wash fast if the fabric is turned into a garment.
These are the brightest pigments of any stamp pad I've tried! I use them and recommend them to all my customers who buy stamps from me. They work really well even on grainy wood. I've also made designs on shirts with them (on cotton) and the imprint has been long lasting. Could not recommend these more. Skip the art store - get these!

My previous fabric ink pad from a different brand was running out, and I’d heard good reviews of YOW pads from a friend on Instagram. I print my own hand carved stamps. You’ll see in my photo that the top print is my old pad and the bottom print is the YOW ink pad. Both prints were done on prewashed white cotton fabric, both were heat set and both were washed vigorously with soap and water water before pressing. The pad is very juicy with ink so I gently pressed it on my stamp 5 times to evenly distribute the ink. The image is crisp and lovely. Absolutely no ink washed out.
I’ve tried MANY inkpads and none compare to YOW’s pads. They are super saturated, extra inky, and they LAST. I must’ve used my last inkpad for a solid year or so before it was done.
