Vintage Skrip differences?
Posted 26 July 2008 - 16:31
Also, I have some modern Skrip cartridges and a bottle of modern Skrip blue-black on the way. Is the new stuff considered washable or permanent?

I use Permanent Jet Black for check writing etc.
The washable colors are just that they wash off with soap and water.
The will significant lighten if not vanish from plain water on paper.
Hope that helps

Washable colors will just wash away completely in a short time.
I have only tested two of the new Skrip in cartridges (from Slovenia): red and blue. They both survived 52 days of direct sun. Exposed to the elements for 52 days, red washed away; blue remained legible as gray.
I would say that, in general, a permanent colored Skrip would be good to use wherever you want the ink to be legible for many years, like journals, family history, etc. The washable colors should be used for temporary writing, like rough drafts, editing, etc. Washable blue is really transient stuff; it will eventually fade away in a dark, dry place. I have not tried washable black.
Hope this helps.
