I am willing to trade hand drawn postcards for ink samples, although there is a limited number of postcards that I have. I am mainly looking for Sailor inks, although I am not picky so send me a message here with a list of inks you have to sample if interested and we can work something out. Thank you! =D

I'm pretty new here and think this is a great idea. Wondering about what you use to put the ink samples in? I have purchased many ink samples from Goulet Pen Company - is that an appropriate container for trading here? Or are you using something a bit larger than those vials? Because I have a few empty vials and would love to start trading ink samples. Thanks.


~ Cheryl >^..^<

My inks I'm willing to trade: Pelikan 4001 (Turquoise, Brilliant Brown, Brilliant Black), Noodler's (Lexington Gray, Polar Brown, Bulletproof Black), Private Reserve (Sepia, Purple Mojo), Cross (Blue), Parker Quink (Black), Robert Oster (Fire & Ice), De Atramentis (Archive Black, Document Violet), Callifolio (Violet), KWZ (Gummiberry), Pilot Iroshizuku (Syo-Ro), Diamine (Ancient Copper).

My pens: Waterman 52 (vintage flex), Waterman Expert (medium), Unknown brand pen with Bock nib, 3 TWSBI Eco (fine, medium, 1.1mm stub), 3 Pilot Metropolitan (fine, medium, 1.0 mm stub), Fountain Pen Revolution Guru (flex), 2 Cross (Century II fine, Classic Century fine), 2 Lamy Safari (fine, medium), Pilot Penmanship (extra fine), Platinum Carbon Desk Pen (extra fine), 2 Platinum Preppy (fine), Parker 25, 2 Noodler's nib creaper, Noodler's Ahab.

I use the Goulet vials.  They sell empty vials in packages of 10, and of course you can re-use the vials.

 

When mailing I enclose the vial in a small ziplock baggie, in case of leakage during shipment.  But the Goulet vials do seal very securely.

You can also buy cheaper vials of the same size as Goulet vials. The information is in the first post of this thread. People tend to trade between 2-5 mL of ink so the Goulet sized vials work nicely. When I mail samples, I wrap the lid with waterproof electrical tape to keep the samples from leaking. It's very effective.

I'm not interested in loaning inks, but I have a Waterman's Intense hardcore intense hardcore tough-as-nails gray.

 

If you could have the most gray-sheening ink on earth, you've found it. I literally see sheens of blue, purple, and even a bit of RED in the bottle. It might just be that the glass is performing chromatography, but to me, a well-behaved black ink SHOULD NOT show you colors of the rainbow.

This thread probably isnt the best place for these comments unless you're offering to trade samples? I'm sure people would be interested to talk about this in the ink forum though (Inks, Inc.)

(that being said, sheen's more about how the ink looks when dry instead of in liquid form, but it's intriguing that you see that many colors in it)


Inks (Always willing to trade samples, PM me!): Noodler's Rome Burning, Noodler's Henry Hudson Blue, , J. Herbin Poussiere de Lune, P.W. Akkerman Laan Van Nieuw Oost-Indigo, Chesterfield Antique Slate, Chesterfield Antique Shamrock, Chesterfield Antique Jade, Chesterfield Antique Orchid, Chesterfield Capri, De Atramentis Apricot, De Atramentis Alexander Hamilton, J. Herbin Rouge Hematite (sans gold), Organics Studio Willow Green, Sailor Storia Magic Purple, Sailor Tokiwa-Matsu, Diamine Eau De Nil, Franklin-Christoph Midnight Emerald, Franklin-Christoph Black Cherry

Hi. I'm looking to get a sample of Montblanc Lucky Orange.

I have LOTS of ink I can trade for, and I am definitely generous about sharing if there's more than one that you're interested in. Please PM if you can spare a little of the orange and let me know what you are looking for.

Noodler's Lexington Gray, Polar Brown, Bulletproof Black

I have nearly full bottles of inks I don't like.  I can see that this is a samplers marketplace.  But if anyone is interested in any of the following nearly-full bottles of ink, PM me and we'll work something out—inks, paper, notebooks, creative trades, whatever.

 

  • Private Reserve Plum
  • Private Reserve Invincible Blue
  • Sheaffer Skrip Red
  • Sheaffer Skrip Blue

I love the smell of fountain pen ink in the morning.

I currently have no inventory except for a couple Noodlers inks (Baystate Blue and Blue Ghost) but am looking to try numerous inks. What do you guys recommend as far as an ink exchange or ink trial program?

 

Have:

Noodlers Baystate Blue

Noodlers Blue Ghost

 

Want:

Some good blues and blacks that resist water and other inks, especially india inks.

Wild card (surprise me!)


If it isn't too bright for you, it isn't bright enough for me.
