Default Memories Dye Ink Not Drying

For some reason, my Memories Dye Ink is now not drying - even if left overnight. I was hoping to avoid pulling out the heat gun for every card.

Any ideas as to why this may not be getting completely dry? When I color with colored pencils the black ink smudges.

Thank you!

Sounds as though it was over inked. What comes to mind is to take a paper towel (gloved hands advised) and remove some of the ink by lightly pressing the paper towel over the ink pad. Stamp an image every so often until the ink dries to your satisfaction.

If you tilt the ink pad, does ink dribble over the side? That would be a telltale sign that it was over inked.

Even though it was two weeks ago, it doesn't take much to re ink a pad. The key that when a reinker is used to reink the pad, squeeze just a few drops onto the pad. You might refer to the manufacturer for more information.

Happy to be of help.

Please keep me posted.

Sometimes the paper has a gloss on it which means this type of ink may not dry on it, or need to be heated. If this ink is not drying on ordinary cardstock or dp, and the ink pad is not over-inked, I would ask the store that sold you the product to find out what is wrong. It could be a faulty reinker, or it might be the wrong reinker for that pad.
