Ink Drop Reveal: October 2010

 

Link to YouTube for iPhones and full-screen viewing.

Here they are, the colors for October's Ink Drop! The these is Autumn Leaves, to get that feeling of all of the changing red, orange, and brown leaf colors. After having very bright and vibrant (and somewhat unusable!) colors in September's drop, we went for much more earthy, practical, and usable ink colors for October.


Diamine Syrah
Diamine Pumpkin
Private Reserve Orange Crush
Noodler's Red
Noodler's Beaver
Pelikan Edelstein!!



Wait, 6 inks? You got it! There is a lot of buzz around the release of Pelikan's new Edelstein ink line, and everyone is curious to see what the ink is like. But at $20 a bottle, it's a pretty expensive test! So we've included a 6th 'bonus' ink this month of a randomly selected Pelikan Edelstein ink.


In addition to the sample, we included swabs of all 7 Edelstein colors for each member. Aaaaand an Ink Drop sticker!


I will be doing reviews of this month's colors here over the next couple of weeks, as well as dedicating my Write Time at 9 live video broadcast to this month's colors on October 19th at 9pm Eastern US time.

Members get 10% off of full bottles of the 5 main colors, but not the Edelstein bonus colors (sorry!).

There is a lot of great stuff in October's Ink Drop, and all for $10. Can you believe it? It's still not too late to sign up if you haven't already. Just head over to the Ink Drop signup page by October 14th, and you'll get all this great stuff....wait past the 14th and you'll miss October's Drop!

  1. You announced the names of the October mailing but why in the world didn't the video show swabs and a brief writing sample? Sure, most names (except Syrah) get you in the color ballpark but why force readers/viewers to then go to Swab Shop and/or FPN to sort out the color nuances when you could have already had the swabs available for instant use in the video?

    And then while you were at it, you could have taken a picture (like was done for the seven Edelstein inks) and included inline with the blog text for those who didn't have time to watch the video.

  2. Shoot, you're right! Ach...you'll have to forgive me, I made that video at about 2am this morning. It's the first Ink Drop video I made, so next time I will definitely have to include swabs and pictures, that's a great suggestion.

    I did edit the post to include swabs, so thanks for that suggestion.

    The thing you'll have to keep in mind here is this whoooole process is very new, so I'm learning as I go here. Thanks for the suggestions, I'll work to make this improvements ongoing!

  4. Okay, there we go. I just edited the video to put swabs in there. It as a lot of work, but now it'll hopefully be a little more useful!

  6. Brian as a first time customer, I have found the October Ink Drop exceptional! I haven't been home this evening so the trials will have to wait until tomorrow. I am really especially excited about the oranges - including the Mandarin!

    Thanks again!
