Where can I buy "ink in a pouch?"  I know that Toucan once sold ink in a pouch. Perhaps they still do.  Your thoughts, please.  C. S.

I don't recall whether the ink was for fountain pens, or for print machines.  However, I last saw such was from online store of  Anderson Pens.   What would be the advantage of ink in a "pouch" ?  It's been awhile.  Good luck.

I suspect that the advantage would be cheaper shipping charges, since it's lighter weight and probably less vulnerable to breakage than a bottle.  But of course then you'd have to have something to decant the ink into....

Maybe the idea is to buy the ink in a bottle to begin with, and then have less expensive bulk refills.

You can buy Callifolio inks from Vanness Pens. They come in 50ml pouches, very economical and their ink color variety is interesting and fabulous.

As mentioned, the Callifolio line is available in pouches from Vanness, but the Toucan inks you mentioned are not being sold in pouches anymore (to the best of my knowledge). I saw them most recently offered at Anderson Pens, but some time within the last year I believe the pouch versions were removed from the lineup, despite "Pouch Ink" remaining in their menu.


I'm also interested in hearing about any others, as I have plenty of empty bottles that could use some filling :)
