Just what I was looking for

I wanted a white ink for my fountain pen and all the others are listed either specifically not for fountains or are iridescent and not visible on darker paper. This De Atramentis is perfect. I loaded it in a fountain with a medium nib and have had no issues. Grateful!


My favorite yet? But disappointed about the cost of shipping (I was under the impression it was free.)

The mystery of the missing

After joning for months new ink to start drawing again with my trusty Sailor fountain pen, imagine my surprise to open the box and find a thank you card sucker/ lollipop, and no ink. I laughed out loud. This the kind of mistake l make all the time. I'm angry or have any ill will. If you find an extra bottle around I would sure would to get it. however if the mystery of missing ink is never solved, sign me up for another bottle. As Tom Waits put it:' I'd rather have bottle in front of me than frontal lobotomy.'

Too transparent

I have two types of black paper material and some colored card stock. The ink goes down white but dries nearly clear, so it won't be replacing my white gel pens. I assume there are types of paper that work with the ink better. Big thanks to Goulet Pens for offering these samples

FAQ about Ink Samples

How do I fill my fountain pen from an ink sample vial? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

It depends on the fountain pen's filling mechanism.

Check out our blog post on How to Fill a Fountain Pen from an Ink Sample Vial.

How much writing can I do with 2ml of ink? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

It really depends on how big or small you write, and the nib size you’re using. We find that usually you can get 2 good fills for a typical converter with our Ink samples, or one good fill with a piston-filling pen. How much writing depends on you more than anything else, so we recommend experimenting with different nib sizes to find what works best for you. 

What is shading, sheening, or shimmering ink? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

Shading - A common (and often desired) result of a fountain pen ink pooling in certain parts of a letter when writing, so that the color and saturation of the ink appears different within a single letter or word. This characteristic cannot be achieved with ballpoint or rollerball pens and is a very appealing aspect of fountain pen use for those particularly drawn to all the pretty ink colors.

Sheen - Characteristic of a fountain pen ink where when ink pools another color can be seen on top of the ink, especially when looked at in different light angles using certain paper types. There is no way to guarantee an ink will sheen, but using a larger nib on a pen will help obtain sheening results in your writing.

Shimmering - Fountain pen ink that has small particles of glitter mixed in.

Is shimmering ink safe to use in fountain pens? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

Yes! Shimmering ink is a great way to add some flare to your writing. We have found that a larger nib will showcase more shimmering particles while writing, but you can use any nib size and shimmering ink. All the ink we sell is safe for use in fountain pens.

You can learn more in our blog: How to Write with Shimmering Ink.
