Limited Release Batch
Continuing our efforts to give the masses what they ask for, we went in search of a U.S. company that produces fountain pen ink. There are even fewer U.S. fountain pen ink manufacturers then there are U.S. pen manufacturers. Luckily for us, we already had a great relationship with one of those companies, Papier Plume. They turned their ink making prowess to the task and provided us with two custom inks made to our specifications.
Our first custom ink is a warm blue that shades nice and dark. When swabbed it ranges from steel blue to a dark, denim blue. We landed on a flower that can be found throughout the Sonoran Desert, the desert Canterbury bell. Our idea with the inks was to pull from Arizona flora, fauna, and locales with the names, and the Canterbury bell really spoke to us. In a pen, the blue is nice and dark with some shading, a great pick for every day use. This ink is not waterproof though it is water resistant.
