Favorite Green

The color is like no other green and the ink itself is consistent and gorgeous to write with.

Smart and Sensible

A color that encapsulates the English countryside and the writing style of Jane Austen. It's a rich vintage shade that is suitable for the academic, and sensible for the work environment. It works well even on my cheapest paper (as pictured). I recommend if you want to feel like...-you're reading right beside Mary Bennet-you're reflecting on the past with Anne Elliot-you're critiquing theatricals with **** Price-you're writing a letter to Mr. Darcy-you're match-making with Emma.

Beautiful medium green

I bought this ink partially for the name and partially for the color, and I am very happy with it! The green is a very nice medium shade, with a lot of interesting shading . It's dark enough to be easily readable and classy, but it is very clearly green, which is what I was looking for. In my TWSBI Eco F, it flows well and has a nice line. It performs well on copy paper, although it loses the shading. When I dripped some water droplets on a sheet of Rhodia, you could still see a faint outline of the words, so it is not truly water-resistant but you could probably still re-construct your writing. I'm a lefty over-writer and haven't noticed any problems with smearing or dry time on Rhodia. I'm very pleased with this ink, as well as with Goulet's excellent packing and service.

want to experiment more

Aesthetically, i love the color. i'm new to fountain pen use and presume the eccentricities i'm experiencing are due (in part) to pen/nib and paper combations. for instance, it beads on certain paper and the flow isn't consistent on another paper type. the remedy for the inconsistent flow was writing more deliberately and slowly.

Bought this for my GF

She was already a user of the Jane Austen ink, so all that was needed was for it to be of a color consistent with what she already knew. She finds it to be a great ink for the workplace. She calls it my proper ink. ..

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.

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!
