Since being founded in 1952, Tsukineko has always strived to be the leading manufacturer of high-quality inks and ink pads. In 1982, they introduced the very first water-based pigment ink pad which was met with widespread enthusiasm by the crafting industry. This pigment ink pad led to the development of the (at-the-time) revolutionary multi-color stamp which then led to the creation of a myriad of other inks and they haven't stopped developing since. Tsukineko is the established leader of innovative inks and ink pads, continually developing new products to meet the ever-changing needs of crafters all over the world responding to what their users ask for. VersaMark, the original watermark stamp pad, allows stampers to create various effects - from two toned to watermark to resist-all with a single inkpad. Brilliance and StazOn enables users to stamp on previously restricted surfaces, such as metal, plastics and vellum. And the list goes on!
