March Ink Drop Reveal: Monarch Madness

Are you a member of our Ink Drop Club? It’s a monthly subscription to receive five curated inks picked by the Goulet Team! We choose a theme and base our ink selection off of it. It’s a great way to add to your ink collection without having to make a monthly order. The cost of shipping is bundled into the price, making it that much more of a deal. Additionally, Ink Drop members receive a discount on select items on the Ink Drop Members page. We did our own play on March Madness this month and we hope you enjoy it!

Since the Roman empire, the color purple has been associated with royalty. In ancient times, creating purple in pigments was no easy feat. Therefore, the price of dye was astronomical and only affordable to the very wealthy. That regal relationship has continued to this day. In this month’s Ink Drop, we invite you to write like a King or Queen with Monarch Madness!

You still have time to receive these five inks included in this month’s Ink Drop! Just place your order before April 1st, and you’ll have five regal inks headed your way. One thing to note about Noodler’s Kung Te-Cheng is that this ink can have some clogging tendencies. Some people choose to dedicate a specific pen just to use with this ink to help avoid this.

  • How did you get that much shading out of Kung Te-Cheng?
