The workplace often comes with certain rules and restrictions that make it difficult to express yourself. For example, shoes are often required. Bringing in exotic pets and blending smoothies at your desk may be frowned upon, too. Likewise, fountain pen enthusiasts may be discouraged or simply gun-shy about displaying vibrant, flashy inks during work hours. Fortunately, there are some inks that allow you to stay passionate about your pens — discretely — while on the clock. (Or in the case of Noodler’s X-Feather, still be able to write on super absorbent recycled paper and moleskin.)

The January Ink Drop features five such inks. Special thanks to Media Team member Sarah Mattozzi for bringing them to life in the below illustration.

Here is the Safe for Work reveal:
