Inks Chris Bought in 2016

Ink Bottles

I asked my friend Chris to tell us what inks she bought in 2016. I love her lists, because they always contain such interesting things. On the one hand, we both love Caran d’Ache and Montblanc inks. So, we’re practically twins. But Chris has much broader ink interests than I do. Occasionally I will insert an Editor’s Note in her text, because silence is not my forte. But here’s Chris.)

I think I’ve bought a similar number of bottles to last year, but I’m not counting any inks that I received for free. Like last year, I bought some more inks that I intend to sell, so I haven’t included those either.

I still haven’t kept very good records of inks I have bought, but I’ve gone back through PayPal and credit card purchases to compile a list for the purposes of this post. I buy inks from quite a few sources so my new years resolution for 2017 will be to keep an accurate record. (Editor’s Note: Good idea. I think my resolution will be to “forget” half my 2017 purchases.)

  1. Chrissy, your ink list is amazing. Some of them I’m downright jealous on for sure…lol. I started out with one pen, thinking I might get one more. Now I have several. I started out with 3 bottles of ink, untried. Then an enabler sent me what she called an ink bomb. (bunch of samples) Well that ignited the ink craze. Now I can’t stop sampling. You have a few I always wanted, but they aren’t found easily. You also have some that I hope to try in the future. I enjoy your reviews, and try to see every one. I had a couple of paper enablers send me stuff too. Now I have a good supply of different fountain pen friendly paper. I listen to what people say about stuff, and make notes on things that interest me. Some of them end up on a wish list. Sounds to me like you did very well on your ink search for 2016!!!

    1. Thank you for your kind words. 🙂 I think I have a passion for looking for inks as well as buying them. Some are easier to find than others. 🙂
