2ml sample of Noodler's Blue Ghost fountain pen ink, in a labeled plastic vial. This is an invisible ink that can only be seen under UV light.

Note: As this ink is virtually transparent, you may be able to see some particles that would be indistinguishable within opaque inks. We’re told that these particles are normal with this ink.

Very fun ink

This ink makes me smile every time I use it. A friend of mine and I discussed invisible inks, so I surprised her by writing an entire letter to her in this ink and sent her a UV light so she could read it! Works great. I can't really address flow because I used it with a dip pen.

I feel like a spy

I bought this ink simply to feel like a child again and pretend to be a spy. This ink works great, I had no issues with it in my TWSBI Eco and it was bright under a black light. Very nice ink.

Shows others there's nothing to see here

It's probably growing up in the height of the blacklight section of stores like Spencer's and covering my bedroom walls with as many uv posters as possible to live in a purple dark room through high-school, and using anything with fluorescent ink to make non-uv posters also glow in the blacklight. I have clearly never grown out of this phase, nor do I plan to. I use this ink in porous point pens like refilled papermate flair (lightest shades well flushed of original color work best) to get the best coverage so you don't have to be right up on it to see clearly. Instead of a basic blacklight or uv flashlight I prefer using a uv gel polish curing led light for fingernails. This blue ghost can also be added to lighter shades of non-uv reactive inks to get them to react under blacklight also. Loving uv reactive colors as much as I do it would be the bomb-dot-com to have a sampler collection of just the different uv reactive colors all together.

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.
