The perfect coral

I was in search of a good coral. This one exceeded my expectations because it is so vivid and juicy.

Lovely ink

I was quite pleasantly surprised with how this ink looks on paper. I'm currently using it in a Twsbi eco fine, and I love how it's not too vibrant, and has a light dusty tone to it. I'm still new to the fountain pen world, but I've been loving most of J. Herbin's inks so far ^^

Beautiful color

I am a fountain pen newbie and am loving the ability to sample different inks! Coral is one of my favorite colors especially this summer. I'm certainly no expect but this ink is an AMAZING color, seems to flow very nicely in my TWBI Eco, and the sample was just the right amount to fill the pen and give a pop of color to my summer journaling. Doesn't seem to feather or bleed through the paper I am currently using. Shipping was super quick. Really love the ability to get samples of all the inks that catch my eye. I will likely be getting a full bottle of this one!

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.
