To Shake Or Not To Shake

Recommended Posts

I don't like to fill up a pen on ink that's been sitting too long, but I don't shake it either. Instead, I invert it gently side to side a couple of times. This is how I was taught to mix body fluids in the clinical laboratory. That way, the formation of bubbles is avoided.

Ok, we've explored the shake/no shake, now how about the temperature? Do you warm your ink?


Not beyond room temp. Generally heat encourages things to grow, but I don't refrigerate my inks either.

With the new FPN rules, now I REALLY don't know what to put in my signature.
