I've never used LAMY inks before and I was pleasantly surprised when I discovered LAMY Turquoise. Smooth, wet, gorgeous color. I will be purchasing a full bottle!

Lives up to the hype

Lamy Inks appear to be hit and miss. The blue is pretty bad, the black is more than serviceable and the Dark Lilac was a gift from the heavens. Lamy Turquoise (or Pacific as it is apparently being rebranded) is a superb ink. Great colour, behaves well, and is a joy to write with. I can't and dont want to say more. If you want a blue turquoise that will knock your socks off... get it. It's cheap, it's everywhere and it's about to get even more popular.

Beautiful blue color

I just inked up my new Prera with this ink and it is blue like the Caribbean sea. It is bright but deep and makes me smile. A beautiful color!

Beautiful, bright, and cheerful!

I was looking for a bright, cheerful turquoise to use for color therapy when the winter blahs hit...and this one is perfect! It's bright but legible, with clear, lovely shading from medium aqua to a bright, true blue. It may not be the most professional-looking or businesslike choice for correspondence, but I smile every time I see it, so I'd say it's perfect for what I wanted.

Bright turquoise

the turquoise is bright and lighter than let say navajo turquise - more on the blue side than green. flows well and shades good.

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.
