Last day to enter the Easter Egg Hunt contest!

Last week we announced a contest for Ink Drop members to guess the colors in this month's drop. In case you missed it, here's the post with the details. The contest closes after today, so make your final pics and vote here today!



Here is the contest entry link!

We'll be announcing the mysterious colors tomorrow, as well as who the winners are for each bottle of ink :) We've been compiling some data on what everyone chose, and we'll have that posted up as well. We promise not to call you out by name, especially if you were waaaaaay off! ;) It's been really fun!

  1. Well, still no ink drop here, but that is probably good. Still supremely disappointed in you, just gobsmacked you'd do such a thing as un-identified samples. So disappointed.

  2. Thanks for reminding me to do this, Brian. I just submitted mine before daylight, my beloved coffee, and sans my color corrected monitor. I will be impressed with myself if I got one right. :) Are you revealing on the blog or during Write Time?

  3. Anon, I'm sorry international Ink Drops take so long to arrive. I'm struggling a little bit as to why you are so disappointed. By the time you will get your inks, you will already know what colors they are, so there will be almost no inconvenience to you at all. I hate to see you in such turmoil over this, but keep in mind, Ink Drop is an ever-evolving experiment and a first-of-its-kind program in the writing world. We are going to continue to innovate and try new things, and if that is something that is not appealing to you, it may be better for you just to order ink samples from our site. All that said, we won't be doing unlabeled samples for a while, if ever again, so your point is well made.

  4. We were going to reveal it during Write Time, but Nathan Tardiff from Noodler's will be joining us, and that will pretty much be the focus! I think I'll just post the colors tomorrow.

  7. Yup, I'll probably do two posts, one for Ink Drop, the other for Write Time. I haven't decided yet.

  10. Alright, alright, I want to keep things civil here. Anon is entitled to their opinion like anyone else, and their point has been made. Let's all keep lighthearted about all this :) It's just ink afterall!

  11. LOVE the innovation, the creativity, and the fun this pen-ink-paper community shares. Thanks to Brian and Rachel for such hard work in fostering the fun but especially for energizing this pen community! Now, if you'll excuse me, I have a few notes to write--Black Swan in Australian Roses is calling! :)

  12. Thank you so much! The passion of the fountain pen community is second-to-none ;) We love being a part of it, and we get a lot of energy from the excitement of other enthusiasts!

  13. It's not the ink that riles me about this post, it's that you and Rachel put heaps of effort into this in an effort to try give ink drop members a special bit of fun for easter AND you're providing prizes out of the goodness of your hearts. Even if people don't want to participate at all, the only impact on them is to wait a couple of weeks before knowing what their samples are.

    To post in this way smacks of insensitivity towards the effort you put into this. To do it anonymously just screams "troll" to me. In fact I wonder whether the poster is really an ink drop member at all.

    BTW, for the info of other potential international ink drop members, I'm in Australia, probably as far away as you can get from the Goulets. My inks come well within standard delivery times from the US - March inks arrived so quickly I was amazed. Even though April wasn't an "early arrival" month, I had plenty of time to put my entry in.

    Brian and Rachel, please don't be discouraged from trying new things in the future (and even from repeating this at some point - I think the majority of feedback to this has been positive).

    Brian, your response is so lovely and gentlemanly - just like you. You're a better person than I am :)

  14. Thank you for your compliments. We do always try to 'push the envelope', even though this entire concept of an ink sample club is in itself a novel idea. We don't want to sit back and congratulate ourselves on a job well done every month, we want to always push in innovate and try new ideas. So I don't think that we'll stop coming up with new themes and ideas, because it's just who we are.

    I'm glad that your inks arrived in plenty of time. I'm always sensitive to the fact that our international members must wait longer, sometimes much longer, to get their inks. It's always a fine balance between waiting long enough to reveal the colors for the month for our international members to still enjoy the surprise, and revealing them soon enough so that everyone may begin taking advantage of the 10% off full bottles for that month's inks.

    I'm glad you appreciate my courtesy, the last thing I want to do is seem 'hot-headed' on my own blog. I'm definitely not looking to be starting and putting out fires left and right around here, I just want to have fun with ink. :)
