Mercian posted a topic in PelikanI was looking through eBay listings for the Pelikan Pura recently, and I have found sellers in the US, Poland, and Germany who are listing the Pura in colours that I have not seen before. I have only ever seen the Pura listed in Blue/Silver, Aluminium/Silver, and Black/Silver. The 'new' colours listed by the sellers on eBay are still all two-tone with 'silver' (polished aluminium). They are Bordeaux (red), Petrol (teal), Forest Green, Anthracite (a matte-finish black?), and Mocha (light brown). To me, the photographs used in the listings do make the pens look like 'official' releases in new colours, but when I looked on Pelikan's website I could not find any mention of them, and none of the UK pen stores I know list them either. So, do any of you know anything about these 'new colours'? Are they official Pelikan models in new colours? Or something else? My thanks to you in advance for your answers. Slàinte, M.
Intensity posted a topic in Inky ThoughtsSailor's announcement on Instagram, showing the three new multi-hue inks that are intended to show different colors on different paper types: https://www.instagram.com/p/CDSgzycpOqB/ Using Google Translate: "What a new color in the 100-color fountain pen ink series! Three new colors of "Fountain Pen Bottle Ink Ink Studio Dye 20ml" will go on sale on Saturday, August 22, 2020 ⚓ New colors are "224", "252" and "280". All of these are mysterious color inks whose color changes depending on the paper on which they are written. Along with this, the three colors of "531", "543", and "864" will be out of the standard, but we are planning to make-to-order sales at the sailor shop (https://sailorshop.jp/). Please wait for a while for this information." Ink colors #531, #543, and #864 will be phased out. Based on the comments in the Instagram post, the three paper types shown from top to bottom are: wood-free/high quality paper, bank paper, and "yupo" paper (coated?)
Hello All! I figured the fountain pen network was a good place to ask this question. So, here goes. I'm a writer who still likes to draft my works by hand. Naturally, a fountain pen is a good tool for someone who writes so much. However, I found that I don't need to have a bunch of bottles of ink lying around, since I'm really only partial to black or blue. To that end, I decided to try my hand at making my own ink. I felt that it would be more economical and leave me with fewer bottles (as i could reuse the same one). I am in the process of perfecting my formula for ink that can be stored in powder form and then mixed with water as it's needed. I only intended to make this for myself, but then I wondered if I'm not the only one who'd like the convenience. So my question (finally) is this: Is it worth trying to market a powdered ink, in your opinion? In other words, do you ink experts think there's a market for it? All responses are welcome. I just really want the input. Thanks!!
