Does anyone know which inks Diamine was producing in the 90s (red inks in partcular)? Novel research. I had a character writing in Syrah, but that's wrong. Inks from the 80s which were still being produced in the 90s would also be awesome, but honestly, any inks at all definitely produced in the period would be great to know.

If you could contact Phil Davies at Diamine, he could tell you.  I believe he has some interesting stories to tell about their old recipe cards.

That would be fascinating information.  Especially since Diamine is one of the older companies out there.

Could this be from the period of your interest?

Excuse me, are you interested in technology or in general who produced this ink? Maybe I did not understand your question a little, sorry !?

Alright, thanks. I'll give that a try.

Listing no longer available, so am unsure. Thanks, though.

Neither. I'm looking for information on inks produced by Diamine during that period. 

 

Thanks for all your responses. I wasn't sure I'd get anything at all.

Interesting to know, I am big a big fan of many Diamime inks. Were they more saturated then?
