Great bright pink ink that you can see. Almost looks like it glows on the page since it’s so bright!

My new favorite pink

My new favorite pink! I love the trueness of the color swatch on this pink, and it comes out like that on the page too! This is probably my new favorite pink ink!

Liked it so much I bought an entire bottle!

Liked the ink so much I ended up buying a whole bottle! Looks great in my Sailor Compass.

Lovely true pink

This was one of the first inks that I got when starting my fountain pen journey about 6 months ago and I'm not tired of it yet! This is actually the main ink I use everyday in a Kaweco sport medium nib pen, which you can see in the attached picture. I work from home so when I write it's for myself and I want it to be as fun as possible while still readable. This definitely fits the bill and I just bought a bottle. Something interesting about the ink is that when I refill my pen the ink looks a bit lighter and with more of a blue undertone, compared to when it's been in my pen longer (possibly oxidized or dried out a little?) and looks slightly darker and more red. The last line written in the picture shows what the fresh ink looks like. This doesn't bother me at all but I could see this bothering someone else. I don't think this ink would stain a demonstrator based on the sample container I had, but I haven't tested that to find out.

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.
