Diamine inks are some of the best inks out there at a great price! I love orange ink that pops off the page. This ink is bright and rich. Flows beautifully and is one of my favorite oranges. Thank you!!

Diamine Sunset

This is a very nice ink, flows well. Goulet Pens service is spot on, with minimal wait for my package.

Great Color

Good ink and a great color. A typical representative of Diamine ink quality. For best results, use good paper. Will get some blead-through on cheap paper.

A really nice orange ink

I'm ordinarily not the world's biggest fan of orange, but the pictures of the ink swabs here intrigued me. I do quite like this orange ink! It's got a little red to it. It writes smoothly and dries pretty quickly, I think. I can't speak too much to things like shading. But I like the color, and I'm happy with the way it writes in my orange Shark pen.

A very pleasing dark orange

Generally, I'm not a fan of orange inks, I do have Iroshizuku Yu-yake, but I bought this one because it seemed a good balance between red and orange. Right now I have this in an Aurora 88 Minerali demonstrator with orange accents. This seems to be a wet-flowing ink and because it's darker, shading is there but it's subtle. All in all, this is just a normal fountain pen ink suitable for daily use but not for archive/permanent use, with a better color than most. Good enough for me.

FAQs about Bottled Ink

Which pens can accept this ink? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

Any of these fountain pens will work with bottled ink. Typically, as long as the pen can be filled with a converter, has a built-in filling mechanism like a piston, or can be eyedropper-filled, it can accept bottled ink.

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.

My ink smells funny, is it safe to use? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

Generally yes! Ink does not smell good- it usually has a chemical smell, along with other scents such as sulfur, rubber, chemicals or even paint. However, as long as you’re not seeing anything floating in the ink, it should be safe to use.

It’s cold and my ink froze; is it safe to use? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

Yes, frozen ink will not hurt your pen (after it’s thawed of course!) The issue with ink freezing is primarily a concern because certain glass bottles could break as the water-based ink expands, and then you’d have a mess!

What is your return policy for bottled ink? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B
