This month’s Ink Drop was extra special. When we learned a few months ago that Terry Johnson, the creator of Private Reserve inks, had passed away, we wanted to do something special to honor his memory. He was one of the first to develop a line of boutique fountain pen inks in the US, and created many beautiful saturated ink colors inspired by his love for gemstones. Many of his colors were named after Fender guitar finishes, also another love of his. We’re big fans of many of these inks and wanted you to experience them too.

Normally we do 5 colors for Ink Drop, but we felt this theme deserved more. So we chose our 8 of our favorite Private Reserve ink colors to include: Avacado, Black Cherry, DC Supershow Blue, Ebony Blue, Orange Crush, Spearmint, Tanzanite, and Velvet Black. Some of these are in our daily rotation, and others are extremely popular among our customers. We hope you enjoy these!

There’s still time if you’d like to sign up to receive this month’s Ink Drop – just sign up anytime before the 14th to receive this special selection. Members get 10% off the full bottles of these colors, plus other great deals. We also offer prepaid subscriptions, which make great gifts!
