I really wasn't sure about the new gold theme on the glass bottles, but must say the 30ml looks much better. And an all round huzzah for the demise of those finicky little grey name tags which must have driven Diamine mad putting them on, never mind the end user when they fell off...!
Well, I miss them. I store my ink bottles in a drawer, and being able to tell which bottle is which when seeing them from above was helpful. I don't have too many bottles, so it's not really a big problem, but having just two of the new bottles made me pick the wrong one 50% of the time (until I decided to put them in alphabetical order, which is practical for just two bottles). When the tags fall off a bit of sticky tape does the job, I think.
I'm usually a bit reluctant to accept changes, and I'm undecided about this. I'm thinking mainly of the 30 bottles, which are the only ones I've got with the new packaging. While the old design was perhaps too spartan, the new one is too flashy for my taste. At least the ink colour is shown in the label. Perhaps what I would have done, had I had the chance, is maintain the same label design, adding the name and making the labels in the same colour as the ink.
But anyway, it's not the packaging which makes me buy or not buy an ink.
I know this was an old thread, but it's not until recently I've got the new bottles.
