You’re right about spreadsheets and photos, it’s a great idea. But, that would bring its own complications when it comes to the before, during and after writing samples each step of the nib tuning process.

I’ve thought of a card system. I think that would work best. Each pen getting a large 6x8 card or two or three. That would allow me to sort pens by brand and model. Right now they appear in date order in the log books. Seems as though I’m too far into it now. I do have to make a photographic record of my collection for insurance purposes anyway. That may lead to a middle of the road solution and a nice adjunct to my log books.

Thanks for the input. Keep thinking

You can create multiple sheets in a spreadsheet, one for each brand and keep adding pic/scan to that particular sheet.

OTOH, you could have an individual spreadsheet for each brand with individual sheets in that spreadsheet dedicated to before, after, during etc. scan/pics.

It could be accessible anywhere and you could then make an informed decision when making a new purchase, on the spot.

 

You are still creating a spreadsheet whether card or digital, so why not go digital?

Pic/scan won't deteriorate with time but ink samples on cards probably will.

My collection has got so large that now I keep pens by brand and model in pen drawers or covered pen trays. Makes it easy to find what I’m looking for. To bring the chronological log books into line with will entail a lot of transposing, but it’s the way to go I’m sure.

Do it slow and steady.

Think of it as a digitizing project and detailed record keeping is part of the hobby.
