De Atramentis inks are handmade by Dr. Franz-Josef Janssen in Germany. He started making inks in 1991 and has since created over 200 different inks. We carry several types of the De Atramentis inks. Here is a brief description of the inks we carry.
Standard / Regular inks - We carry several colors of the De Atramentis standard inks. These inks flow well through the fountain pens and perform great on quality paper. These are not waterproof inks. Most of the De Atramentis inks have very vibrant colors.
Document Inks - These are great inks to use when addressing envelopes or using your fountain pen on official documents. These inks are permanent and waterproof.
Historical Individual Inks - These are standard inks that Dr. Franz-Josef Janssen has matched color to person and labeled the bottle accordingly. These are great inks for people who are fans of authors, past presidents, and other historical figures.
Pearlescent Inks - These inks are very similar to a lot of the shimmer inks on the market in regard to the shiny glitter look. The main difference is Dr. Franz-Josef has perfected the metallic look to the ink when compared to other shimmer ink brands. The pearlescent inks have tiny particles suspended in the ink to give it the pearlescent look when you write with the ink. This ink flows well through the fountain pen and performs nicely on quality paper. These bottles of ink must be shaken well prior to drawing ink out of them. When the ink is in the pen, it helps to invert the pen several times prior to writing so the ink mixes prior to writing. The wider the nib and better quality of paper you use with these inks will make the pearlescent look come out more. As with all shimmer type inks, these inks require the fountain pen to be cleaned more often to ensure good ink flow. **Note** It is more difficult to take pictures of the pearlescent inks and show the true beauty of the ink. Some of our pictures show some of the inks with sheen and others without. This is due to the camera angle and lighting. All of these inks have a pearlescent sheen to them.
De Atramentis Inks will be shipped via the USPS First Class or you can upgrade shipping to priority mail for an additional charge. If the weight of the package exceeds first class limits, the inks will be shipped priority.
