All Pennonia inks are created by hand using high quality ingredients, precise measurements and a pinch of passion for writing and inks in order to bring you, vivid, beautiful colors to write with.

Pennonia inks can also be customized with different color shimmer powders based on your preference. Each bottle is hand labelled using Clairfontaine Clairmail 60 g/m2 white paper and the bottles themselves are pharmaceutical grade amber glass bottles to protect the inks from UV light.The wide mouth of the bottle (4 cm) is excellent for filling any kind of fountain pens and reduces the changes of accidentally tipping them over when filling. All inks carefully packed into, simple yet beautiful boxes to keep them safe during transport right until they reach your shelves.
About the color:
Pennonia Fekete Sas (Black Eagle)
Named after the Black Eagle Palace of Nagyvárad (Oradea, RO). The old city center is a beautifully restored art piece and one of it’s crown jewels is the Black Eagle Palace. I spent three years in Oradea for my Bachelor of Arts degree and in that time I had the chance to see the main square many times both before and after restoration. If you are ever doing a tour of Transylvania be sure to stop in Oradea.
The palace, designed by Marcell Komor and Dezső Jakab, has become one of the most beautiful Art Nouveau buildings in Transylvania. The stained-glass window with the black eagle, which became the symbol of the city, was made in the Neumann workshop in Oradea.

Regarding shimmer powders: If you decide to add shimmer powder to your ink order please note that these inks may clog your pen or make it hard to clean. Only use shimmering inks if you are willing to accept the downsides that come with it. We recommend using dip pens or fountain pens that are easy to disassemble and clean thoroughly.
