Hello, crafty friends! We are so thrilled to introduce Altenew’s NEW round dye inks! Say hello to our Trailblazing Fresh Dye Ink Pads!

The high-viscosity dye inks (slightly different from our existing dye ink) are rich and vibrant and will stamp perfectly alongside other Altenew inks in your collection. The modern and minimalist round ink cases feature a felt pad and were custom-designed with YOU – the crafter – in mind. All it takes is a simple twist to open the lid, and you’ll be ready for your next crafty project!

Trailblazing Fresh Dye Inks

Fun Fact!

“[Trailblazing] has a dual meaning since the color families (Blue Mountains, Frosted Foliage, Woodland Escape) make me think of a hiking trail. But it is also “trailblazing” since the round containers are innovative and not seen anywhere else.” – Jennifer Rzasa, Product Development Team

Altenew's Product Development Team collaborated with some amazing partners who spent two years creating a mold and getting the round case right. Our goal has always been to provide high-quality and one-of-a-kind paper crafting supplies to inspire YOUR creativity. With these redesigned dye inks, stamping is easier than ever. The water-based and highly-saturated round dye ink pads have everything you LOVED about our original Oval Ink Pads and MORE!

Easy Twist Lids!

Isn't it frustrating when you break a sweat just to open your ink pads? Have you ever attended a crafting event and realized you've got a loose ink pad in your bag? Say goodbye to these crafty mishaps! Our new round dye inks feature an easy twist lid with some markers that will help you “lock” the ink pad to avoid inky situations.

vicki430 November 15, 2022 - 1:31 PM

I just love how the colors coordinate! The full size pads aren’t in my budget at the moment, but I’m excited to create a wish list for Christmas after I try the minis! The browns are the most exciting to me, as they’re so beautiful!

Arlene Plastine November 15, 2022 - 1:36 PM

I love the colors offered and the new round shape is different. These will surely change the way I now store my inks.

Deb Kolar November 15, 2022 - 1:40 PM

Blue Hyacinth….the smaller round size will make it easier to stamp those tiny areas where you are wanting a different color from the rest of the stamp. yay!

Libby November 15, 2022 - 1:40 PM

Stunning colors as usual! What an innovation but so simple. A round ink pad with a screw-on lid. Brilliant! I don’t know how they will fit in current storage systems, but am sure that someone will have something creative very shortly. Kudos Altenew!

Susan A Logan November 15, 2022 - 1:41 PM

love the shape of the new inks and that the covers twist off and on.

1948maryMary Fuller November 15, 2022 - 1:41 PM

I love all the new colors. And the round shape is really different but would love to give it a whirl!! I am usually a red/purple person, but love all colors.

Susan Drago November 15, 2022 - 1:44 PM

Can’t wait to try out these new inks!

Dianne Yount November 15, 2022 - 1:52 PM

These look like very interesting inks! The thicker viscosity intrigues me, can’t wait to try it. Love the blues and greens!

sandramullenix November 15, 2022 - 1:54 PM

I commented when I first started the hop but I just now saw your question about the color selections and wanted to give you my two cents worth. These are the most brilliant colors I have seen in my 20 plus years of stamping. I am so in love with the blues especially. I am hoping the reds, yellows, purples and pinks will be as vibrant and I can’t wait to see what you come up next. Thank you.

Melissa B. November 15, 2022 - 1:55 PM

I love them all of them, however I love them all of the, the Woodland set caught my eye due to the peach hue. And who could forget the round locking lids?! You’ve outdone yourself Altenew!

hannalyo November 15, 2022 - 2:05 PM

I love the round locking lids – when I carry my inks somewhere I’m always searching for rubber bands so the inks don’t open in my bag. The colors look fabulous – I can’t wait to try them out!

LAURA CASSELMAN November 15, 2022 - 2:30 PM

I never had a problem with the other inks but these inks are outstanding! From the colors to the new design and more saturated formula…I can’t wait to try them.

Denise Soloko November 15, 2022 - 2:43 PM

I LOVE the look and the details of the new round Trailblazing Dye Inks.
I have the hardest time opening the small square ones for some reason.Once I get them open, I fumble with them when I’m using them.
Maybe it’s just me having these issues with the square shape, but I’m really looking forward to the new Trailblazing Dye Inks.

Sandy November 15, 2022 - 2:44 PM

I am quite impressed with the saturated formula and with the locking lids. I look forward to trying them, especially the beautiful Indigo blue.

Michele F November 15, 2022 - 2:48 PM

I love the idea of ‘twist off lids’ surely, they won’t dry out as others have a tendency to do! These premier colors are gorgeous!
Will you have a trade-in policy? lol Just kidding!

Laurie November 15, 2022 - 2:50 PM

Love inks and these look really yummy.

Krista K November 15, 2022 - 2:57 PM

Love the new design.

Anki Arvmyren November 15, 2022 - 3:06 PM

I think the new dye ink is the answer a lot ot of us have been waiting for. The coverage and the colors are outstanding. Can’t wait to get them home to me and start using them.

The color palette is lovely. You should create ink storage for them too!

Channelling Martha November 15, 2022 - 4:25 PM

I am always excited to see new colors but I really want to see how the new formulation compares to the old ink.

kathysgm November 15, 2022 - 4:26 PM

Beautiful vibrant colors….loved the tutorial by Jennifer & loved the creation of Nathalie in using all the colors in her spread.
