Unlike India ink which is pigment-based, alcohol ink is dye-based, providing more versatility. Alcohol inks are generally acid-free, densely pigmented, and fast drying, which make it optimal for non-porous surfaces such as glass and metal surfaces. Other ideal surfaces include glossy cardstock, plastics, ceramics, stone or leather.
