Thanks for taking interest.
Could anyone help me out with ink stores in India? I would prefer the ones who give an option to order online. (Of course, I cannot travel all of India just for some ink bottles :/ )
I live in a small town & all that is available here is Camlin Blue & Red inks. If you are lucky, you may find Parker Quinky.
I'm looking for inkwells up to INR 500 but cannot find stores. I have been swarming the internet since last week but to no good.
I've been through pensavenvue.com, pensindia.com & of course snapdeal, flipkart, ebay and amazon. Here's what I've seen:
Pelikan inks (32/65ml base colors RGBY) : INR 200-400 : OUT OF STOCK
Diamine inks (30-60ml base colors RGY, blue available): INR 375-500: OUT OF STOCK
Waterman inks: Same, out of stock.
I mean, come on! All they've got of these brands are 850 & above! You name it! Lamy, Diamine, Waterman, J.herbin, etc.
Can't find varied colors in any local brands & I'm not going to use camlin.
I've tried to shop cross country but the shipping charges are more than the cost of product, obviously. :/
I currently use PILOT NAMIKI IROSHIZUKU - Ku-jaku Peacock Deep Turquoise Blue (50ml) & it cost me 1500 INR. I ordered it from engeika.com. If you buy the same thing from any of the Indian stores, you get it for 2500. Now, I can't afford 1500 for ever color and just for 50ml.
So, I'm looking for varied colors & a bit of quality at the same time. So, any suggestion regarding stores / places to buy would be helpful. Also, please let me know if there are any Indian brands who make good inks.
