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 Meggyes is a dark burgundy with excellent flow and a rich, strong color. The ink is saturated but can still offer shading properties. The name translates simply to Sour Cherry and I chose it because we had a huge sour cherry tree in the garden during my childhood. I always liked how beautiful the tree was when it was full of fruit, the colors ranging from vivid red all the way to an almost complete black. We used to hang the cherries on our ears and wore them as earrings. Ironically I never liked the taste of sour cherries.
“Meggy” refers to a type of cherry: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prunus_cerasus
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.
