PROS 

  • Bottle is easy to fill from.
  • I love this color! Obviously subjective, but I think it's a really nice shade. The last one was a pink magenta, and this is definitely purple. 
  • Bottle is tinted to save your ink from UV exposure. It also comes in a box, making it easy to stack.
  • Easy to store on your shelf in the box.
  • Well-behaved. 
  • Looks beautiful in heavy applications - rich and saturated.

CONS

  • Each bottle is wrapped in plastic wrap. I realize this is likely to prevent leaking but it feels wasteful to me.
  • If you use this in a very wet application, it can take a long time to dry and remain a little smudgy. 
  • KWZI inks have a particular smell - some describe it as vanilla. Myself, I do not like it at all. I suffer the smell for the joy of their colors. Fortunately, the smell does not linger on the page, but I feel I must warn you in the event that you find smelly inks off-putting. 

OVERALL

Another KWZI hit - I love this color. A great purple that shows some shading, not super saturated and dark, and just a pleasant shade. 





I received this item/these items free of charge for the purposes of this review. I was not compensated monetarily for my review. Everything you've read here is my own opinion.

Field Trip @PaperPlusCloth in Toronto, Ontario

I recently attended my first calligraphy workshop at Paper Plus Cloth in Toronto - you can see the video here if you are interested! The shop itself is adorable, dangerous, and perfectly perfect! The workshop itself was an excellent learning opportunity and Candace and I headed a few stores down to pick up a coffee. It was early, ok? So please enjoy some photos of this shop you must visit and the coffee shop! Let's start with the food. Then you can feast your eyeballs on stationery, notebooks, washi tape, Traveler's Notebooks goodies, and more!
