This sturdy ring-bound book features 100 sheets of 160g white paper and a heavy duty chipboard letter press cover and backing. This paper is resistant to bleed through and feathering, so your samples will look crisp and fresh. This will also leave you with a blemish-free back of each page for additional ink testing. The clip ring binding is removable, so you can add, remove, or rearrange samples.

The options for swabbing or testing your inks in this book are quite varied. You could choose to do writing samples as shown above. This will give you the chance to see how the ink performs in writing. Creating little drawings or sketches is a great way to test the ink out too. You could also do swabs of the ink using a cotton swab and use a dip pen to record the name of the ink. Maybe you even want to compare your inks, like the image below shows, so you can swab multiple colors side by side for a color comparison right in your book.

Whatever way you choose, the Col-O-Ring will keep your ink tests safe and organized.
