Private Reserve Highlighter Ink

You may have heard that Pelikan is coming out with the m205 duo highlighter pen/ink combo. Well, Private Reserve has just revived an old formula of their own highlighter ink called Chartreuse. An old formula? That's right....PR had a highlighter ink years ago, but discontinued it because of a lack of interest in the writing community.


So why is Private Reserve reviving their Chartreuse ink? No doubt it's because of some of the interest in the Pelikan highlighter ink. PR had the formula already, they simply had to whip up a batch and make it! Apparently, it does some really cool stuff under blacklight as well, so you'll be seeing some real interesting pictures from me!

But the highlighter ink isn't limited to just these two brands. Noodler's also has a highlighter ink called Firefly. So to me it raises the question, can the writing community really absorb 3 (at least!) different brands of fountain pen highlighter ink? Time will tell.

I haven't tried PR Chartreuse myself, but I will be getting some in soon. I will also be expanding my ink offerings at GouletPens.com to carry Noodlers, which includes Firefly. And next month when the Pelikan m205 duo's come in, I'll have 3 different highlighter ink brands to compare for you. Fun stuff!

  1. Is Noodler's the only company that has made highlighter ink in a color not yellow?

  2. They're the only one's that I'm aware of that make several colors of highligher ink made for fountain pens. There are other companies that make inks intended for refillable highlighters (the felt-tip marker kind).

  9. The only ones I know are Noodler's (with the best selection, by far), PR with the Chartruese, and Pelikan, with their m205 duo highlighter: http://www.gouletpens.com/Pelikan_M205_Duo_Highlighter_Ink_p/p344879.htm


    The Pelikan ink is nice, but far more expensive than Noodler's or PR, not really worth the premium imho.
