Hey there, crafters! Are you tired of the same old, dull inks that leave your cardmaking and paper crafting projects looking lackluster? Well, fear not! Our Fresh Dye Inks are here to revolutionize your creative endeavors. These vibrant and versatile inks are a game-changer in the world of crafting. So, grab your favorite crafting tools and let's dive into the wonderful world of Fresh Dye Inks!

What are dye inks?

First things first, what are dye inks? Dye inks are water-based inks that are perfect for stamping and creating vibrant, colorful designs. They're great for blending and layering, which makes them versatile and perfect for a wide range of projects.

What makes Altenew Fresh Dye Inks different from other dye inks on the market?

Well, for starters, the colors are absolutely stunning. They're bright, bold, and perfect for any project you can dream up. But that's not all – the ink pads themselves are unique. Our full-sized Fresh Dye Inks have a unique round shape that makes them easier to hold and use. The modern and minimalist round ink cases feature a felt pad and were custom-designed with YOU – the crafter – in mind.

Why round? Jen and Tasnim shared this during a Q&A: “It is something fresh that hasn’t been done before with inks. It looks cool and it feels good in the palm of your hands. We just love it!”

The felt pads are also raised, which means you can easily ink up even the largest stamps without getting ink all over your fingers. If you want something smaller and more budget-friendly, these are also available in Mini Cube Inks.

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.
