Love this ink

The ink is a great color and works fantastic with any pen. I can use it on the same page with black ink and still visually make out the difference.

Excellent service, great ink, beautiful and thoughtful packaging.

This is a beautiful shade of blue for me, and works really well with the Lamy 2000 I also bought through Goulet. I will be purchasing all of my writing supplies from Goulet going forward. The Diamine Oxford Blue is really lovely, but also dark enough to read easily; the bottle is also exquisite and is, itself, a work of art. Works really well and "wet" (but not too wet...) with the Lamy 2000 fountain pen. The loving and careful way everything I've purchased from Goulet is packaged speaks volumes of your love for the products you sell and your care and respect for your customers. Thanks so much to Goulet!Mary

Great Addition to my Blues

A great blue from Diamine. I really like the flow; makes my signature look quite nice.

A perfect "professional hue" of blue

I felt this ink was the exact shade of blue I was seeking, dark, not blackish, and yet still discernible as blue. I'd recommend it for f/m, m, broad or stub nibs, as I found it lent to a toothy paper feel on finer nibs. It seems to dry quickly and overall I am happy with the purchase. I always have one pen inked with this.

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

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.
