All about the ink
As a stamper myself, I dreamed of solid and true colors that popped on my paper as well as color coordination that is a snap. We tested and played with different ink formulations to make sure it could meet all the challenges...and Catherine Pooler ink was born!  We arrived at an ink formula that was multi-purpose, achieving results previously requiring multiple or specialty products.

Color made easy

Color made easy

CP Inks collections are formulated to help crafters easily create perfectly coordinated projects with matching saturations and tones.

Embossing Powder

Solid, Smooth Images

With our foam pads, two or three LOVE TAPS are all you need to get full coverage on your stamp that transfers beautifully to your paper.

Water reactive 

Water Reactive

CP dye inks are water-reactive, making them great for ever-popular water splotching and flicking techniques.

Color made easy

Blending is easy

CP Inks stay wet for a few seconds, so you have time to ink blend beautiful backgrounds with your colored ink pads.

How to use and care for your dye inks

All about Catherine Pooler Inks

Catherine Pooler foam ink pads release ink very easily making them perfect for stamping, ink blending and direct-to-paper techniques.

Ink Refills

Our foam ink pads transfer ink easily and we recommend purchasing ink refills so you’re never caught with a dry pad.

Midnight Ink Best Practices

Our archival Midnight Ink is waterproof and permanent. Use a stamp cleaner immediately after stamping for best results in removing the ink.

Metallic Inks

Our Pigment Metallic Inks are slow-drying, archival, fade-resistant and acid-free. Use clear embossing powder or spray fixative for improved permanence.

Metallic Inks

Add bling to your projects with our Metallic Pigment Inks! Our Metallic Inks are thick and rich in color, and they stamp crisp images and sentiments that shimmer as they catch the light.

Pigment inks are slow-drying, archival, fade-resistant and acid-free. Dry time depends on the surface used—inks will dry faster and be more permanent on more porous surfaces. Use clear embossing powder or spray fixative for improved permanence.
