Great selection to sample top inks

I'm very pleased with the set of colors so far. I haven't tried them all in my pens, but I'm excited to do so. I love that this is an option to sample small amounts of many ink colors and brands before investing in full bottles.

Skeptic turned zealot

I wasn't prepared to jump into the world of fountain pens and right off the bat purchase a large container of ink I couldn't be certain was something I liked. This sample set was recommended to me by a friend who also uses Goulet inks, and I was blown away with the richness of color, the ease of refilling my pens, the vast variance in ink choices (even in a small sample set like this), and the overall quality of the products. I'm definitely going to be purchasing some larger quantities of these inks and recommending them to literally anyone I know who is even remotely interested in fountain pens!

Nice selection of quality ink

Wanted a good, random selection of inks to get an idea on full bottles to add to my list.

FAQs about Ink Sample Package Sets

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.

Can I substitute a color in this set? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

We are unable to make substitutions in any of our ink sample sets.

What's your return policy for ink samples? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

We do not accept returns for ink that has been used. Otherwise, we accept returns on unused ink products for up to 30 days from purchase. You can read all our Return Policies here.
