To remove ink stains from leather and vinyl, put rubbing alcohol on a washcloth and blot the ink stain. The alcohol will need to sit on the ink stain for thirty minutes or so in order to dissolve the stain. After the alcohol has done its magic to remove the ink stain, blot the remaining ink stain with a clean wash cloth. If the stain is not removed on the first try-try, try again. To avoid any damage or drying out of the leather or vinyl, rinse the area with a solution of one quart of cool water mixed with a quarter cup of vinegar. Give a final rinse with plain water.

One thing you can do is to place the stained side on absorbent towels and wet the stained area. But be careful…you do not want to spread all over the fabric. Continue this till the towels stop getting stained. Let the fabric dry and then carefully sponge the permanent ink stain with a dry-cleaning solvent. Let it dry, and then rub the area with detergent and rinse thoroughly.
After that you could apply a very dilute solution of ammonia on the stain and let it soak. If the stain becomes lighter, rinse the fabric and repeat the process.

Isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol is really what is in the products that people have mentioned that works.

Change your backing sheet. The alcohol can easily carry the stain through the backing sheet/cloth to the fabric below.
Do quick blots. i.e. after you put the alcohol on blot repeatedly and quickly. I think this maximizes the efficiency of the capillary action which is lifting the stain. I had started with holding the blotting cloth on the stain for 30 seconds or so and the quick blot seemed more efficient.
