The new pads include a defoamer to stop the inks from bubbling and they are a firmer fit around the lid. Also, they open like a compact, so they are really easy to operate and; they have little holes on the top and; corresponding feet on the bottom so you can stack them really neatly. They are also more of a square shape, but the ink pad itself is about the same size. One last thing, they have an extra black color sticker and; a spot for it on the inside, so you know which ink you're using when they're open! I'm so excited to get these!
Here are some pics comparing the current pads you have and the new ones coming June 1st:
As you can see they will stack much easier and take up much less space! Yeah!
***TIP: If your new ink pads are stiff to open and close, rub a wax tea light along the sides. So much easier to use especially if you have arthritic hands!
