Platinum Preppy Purple Cartridge

Hi there!

So... I've not done this before. I couldn't find a review for this ink and thought it would be a good ink for my first try. I apologize in advance for both my handwriting and any mistakes.

P.S. I am going to get this photo facing the correct direction if it kills me O.o

Great review, thanks. I agree that it's a bit of a "blah" colour and reinforces my lack of interest in Platinum inks even though I love their pens.

Yeah, too pink for me, too. I own one of these pens, and when the ink runs out (may take a long time), I will yank the nib/feed out and put other ink in it. I like the pens plenty well.

The term "violet" is WAY off for this one. I just got a "violet" platinum preppy with one of these cartridges included. This is more like "migraine magenta" than violet.

Thank you for the review. I'm with you about being surprised by the pinkish color of some of the purples. I think of purple as the color of Noodler's NAV and I am disappointed when I end up with a color that I would have loved had it been described (named) differently.

 

Keep doing the reviews please. :)

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

Thanks for your comments everybody :) I was surprised with how violently pink this "violet" ink was, but I love the pen regardless.

Shalom!

Has anyone found a bottle ink similar in color to the Preppy Violet?

I got my wife a Preppy as her first FP and she loved the color but now we want to convert it to an eyedropper.

Welcome aboard. Yes, I would say that Monteverde Violet, Organics Studios J.A. Violet or my favorite, Solferino (I think that one is R&K).
