Our inks can be broken down into 4 main types:
THE ELEMENTS SERIES – our take on a collection of the essential colors of any writing ink collection. These inks makeup a set of ‘simple’ colors, tasked with coloring the basic spectrum of pure colors. These chemistry-themed inks were our first foray into the ink world, and have stuck with us ever since. Our first four colors ever made included Carbon Black, Mercury Red, Cobalt Blue, and Manganese Blue/Black. We expanded to include Uranium Green, Vanadium Violet, Arsenic Gray, Copper Turquoise, Sulfur Yellow, Nitrogen Vibrant Blue, and Lithium Violet. Our 2016 resurgence will include a selection of these previously available inks, along with some new members.
THE MASTERS of WRITING SERIES – these inks attempt to merge a famous writer from previous centuries with a color that brings them to mind. These inks are more unique hues that we made to fill gaps in the available ink world. This series paid homage with inks such as Jane Austen Violet, Jules Verne Nautilus Blue, Edgar Allan Poe Raven Red, L. Frank Baum Emerald Green, and many others. This line also included our renown Sepia Series, which included Foggy Bottom Red Sepia and Join or Die Green Sepia, two inks made to commemorate the DC and Philadelphia Pen show, respectively.
THE MASTERS of SCIENCE SERIES – these inks all were forays into unique ink properties. We offered the Darwin Ink Series that were all fast-drying inks, the Accident Blue pigmented ink, the Isaac Newton pigmented black ink, and the Gregor Mendel Chlorophyll-based ink.
THE VINTAGE INK SERIES – these inks were inspired by the Parker Vacumatic – my personal favorite pen. These pens are notoriously difficult to clean and fully empty. These inks are intended to be left in the pen for extended periods of time without the worry of damaging such pens. These inks have become some of our customers favorite inks for their unique colors and desired properties. For that reason, these inks will be our first reintroduced in June 2016.
