CONS
  • On the pricey side.
  • Purple inks can stain clear pens so be careful.
  • Medium show through. 

OVERALL
I am a fan of Montblanc inks. Although they are expensive, I find the colors beautiful, saturated, and they offer shading. They tend to be well-behaved and not too difficult to clean. Even the best purple will require a little more maintenance than a washable blue so I do take some care with this ink (and other purples), but I enjoy it quite a bit. It's expensive but 50 ml is decent.

IncoWriMo 2018 Get Ready to Write! @InCoWriMo

INCOWRIMO 2018!

IncoWriMo 2018 Get Ready to Write! 1

What is InCoWriMo?

Ink-a-what? InCoWriMo stands for International Correspondence Writing Month.

When is InCoWriMo?

February. It starts the first day of February and ends on the last day! Beat those winter blues with a month full of snail mail love!

Why InCoWriMo?

It's fun! Make use of those pens, papers, inks, stickers, and everything else you have that is snail mail-friendly! Share your colors

What do you do?

Write a letter, postcard, note, doodle, sketch, whatever you want - put it on a piece of paper, fill a notebook, soil a napkin - just write to one recipient every day for the entire month of February.

Can I write extra letters to catch up?

Absolutely. You can even write 28 letters on the last day if you wish, but it's more relaxing to do one a day.

Who do I write to?

You can write to anyone you want. Friends, family, your neighbor, your teacher, your significant other, your cat... it doesn't matter. The goal is to send out 28 letters. You can swap addresses with other pen lovers and snail mailers on InCoWriMo.org

Do my recipients have to write back?

It would be fun if your recipients are willing and able to reply to your InCoWriMo correspondence, but not everyone will be able to or wants to. Remember: your goal is to spread your snail mail love!

How do I write a letter?

If you're nervous, keep it simple. Who are you? What's your name? Share some of your likes and dislikes. What pen are you using? What ink are you using?
