okay, so I'm a few years behind the rest of you (this is nothing new Rolling Eyes ) and finally have some Promarkers . Have tried out a couple of different types of card and found which one works best (not the expensive stuff we bought from Inkylicious at the show Alison, doesn't like them one bit).

Have been stamping with Archival inks (because that's what I have, and I know Stazon won't be any good).... but my image is bleeding a bit once I have started colouring. Is this:

a/ me being impatient, wait for it to dry a bit longer, or
b/ change cardstock Tina, and buy (x), or
c/ something I hadn't thought of.....

No, I'm not putting my 'to do' list here, that would be far to organised, PLUS I would have to keep it up to date  Laughing

Have never used Archival inks Tina so cannot comment on them but I always use Memento ink to stamp an image for promarker colouring. Never have problem with that.

I always use impress ink when I stamp and that never bleeds (though the yellows do smudge the lines a little if done to quick). Sounds like the type of card may need changing.

Now I use a nice smooth card from the work which is 99p (it does still bleed a little!) but don't know if you have a works nearby.

I'm sure Ruth and Lorraine can point you to a website on where to get the card they use.

Memento or Impress inks are the best, although Archival should be OK. I'm sure I've used it sometimes.

It could be your card but it also could be because the pens are new. They are very wet and the ink flows very freely. I used a pen tonight that I'd only used once or twice and I had some bleeding too. You need to be VERY light handed with them...something else I had to learn, lol. Try a few more times before changing your card Tina.

If you do want to change, I use 'Personal Impressions Premier Quality Smooth White Card', it's cheap and available loads of places.

I have found that my pro-markers bleed through the card, so there is splodges of colour on the back, but my other pens don't.

They do bleed through the back Billie, it's if they bleed over the lines that's the problem.

Alcohol ink based pens do bleed through the back, although there is some
card that it doesn't go through - can't remember which, but if it's being used
as a topper no one is going to see it anyway.

No problem with bleeding through the back, I always mat my images. The problem I'm having is that the inked image itself is bleeding, no matter how carefully I colour. I have established that it's the ink; I used an inkjet printed downloaded image, coloured that in and it was fine. Have ordered a Memento ink pad, and some Neenah card (who on earth thought of that name, makes me think of sirens Crying Laughin ), so hopefully that will solve the problem.

I've had problems with inkjet printed images too Tina even giving them plenty of time to try. Used the Neenah card too and that was fine.
