Moppie - i accept trades of paper samples or stamps if there's an ink I have you are interested in. I think others are open to this as well - never hurts to ask.

These new posts reminded me that I got some vials recently (thanks KCat) and meant to post a note here.

I have the following:

Private Reserve: DC Supershow 2004, American Blue, Lake Placid Blue, Midnight Blues
Noodlers: Black, Ottoman Rose, La Couleur Royal
Waterman Florida Blue
Aurora Blue
Swishmix Glacier Blue
Lamy Blue Black (I found this ink very dry so it has a bit of soap added to it and now maybe it's too wet, but the color didn't change).

I've added a few new inks:
Yard-o-led Blue (according to Pendemonium this is the same as Diamine Royal Blue)
Swisher Emerald and Antigua Blue
Sheaffer Blue
Parker Quink Blue

I have a Miquelrius and Clairfontaine sprial notebooks, a small Rhodia pad and Southworth Fine Business 100% Cotton paper that I could send paper samples instead of ink.

I'm mostly looking to try Blue-Blacks, I'd like to find a good green and I always want to try any blue I haven't tried before. I'd like to try any of the Noodlers waterproof inks besides black.

In particular, I'd like to try Noodlers Blue, Ottoman Azure, Midnight Blue, Waterman Blue-black, Private Reserve Black Magic Blue, Sonic Blue, Spearmint, Sherwood Green, Emerald Green and anything else anyone finds particularly noteworthy.

This isn't very glamorous, but I have a bottle of Schaeffer black, brand new, that I will never use. I will trade it for anything except a black, anybrand and doesn't even have to be much in it just enough to try a new color would be fine by me.

Red - Waterman
Pink - Sheaffer Pink & Herbin Rose Cyclamen

I'm in the midst of ordering vials right now, so it will be a few days before I can officially trade. Looking forward to it! -Heidi :wub:


OH! I also have rhodia, clairefontaine, and miquelarius paper if people want paper samples instead of an ink vial - I think that's a great idea! Maybe I should just ask for that... PM or e-mail for my snail!

(Edit: updated again: April 18, 2006, 11:11 p.m. USA Pacific Time: I had thought my A. T. Cross ATX M was stolen because it hadn't come back from factory service in months and because other things had truly been stolen from the front of my apartment, but the pen came back from the factory today in a package that fit into my mailbox. Hooray! :D :bunny1: )

From bottles, I have
Levenger Cocoa,
Namiki/Pilot Black,
Noodler's Black,
Noodler's Blue-Black,

and Waterman Purple/Violet.

In cartridges, I have

I'm able to use all of those cartridge formats. I can use international short cartridges, too.

I'll consider other ink sample trades, too.
