Available exclusively through North American retailers, Sailor's new USA 50 State Ink Series will introduce a specially themed ink for each state in the union. Each 20 ml bottle is specially packaged with a design featuring the outline of the state being featured.


The series kicks off with a deep blue for California, inspired by the waters of the Pacific Ocean, and with a rich purple for Colorado, inspired by that state's official flower, the columbine. Our first shipment is expected to arrive this week - each bottle is $25.00.

Interesting.  But not cheap....

I'm not all that wild about the first two offerings (I have a lot of similar purples already) and I'll hold off on California until I see some comparisons with other inks in that range (I'm hoping that it will be a replacement for MB Leo Tolstoy, but on my screen it looks a little too green for my taste).

Wondering what they will do for PA (where I live) and NYS (where I'm originally from)....

Thanks for the heads up, though.  I'll be curious as to how Sailor will depict the other 48 states.

$25 for 20ml of ink ?...   some of the current ink pricing is absolutely crazy...


I simply refuse to participate in the ridiculously high priced inks...


Too many reasonably priced alternative inks to purchase.

"specially themed ink for each state in the union".



Doesn't sound to me like new colors, just new packaging.


Polite pass...

I like the idea of this but the price is insane.

Unless, they can really nail Nevada, I'm not interested.

Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).
