The Writing Desk Ink Sample Service

Choose from the links below to display fountain pen ink samples grouped by colour.
Each sample bottle contains approximately 2.5ml of ink so you can try the ink without having to buy a whole bottle. To fill your pen, either use one of our syringe kits or draw some ink into the converter from your pen. Note that orders of ink samples may take up to 7 working days. Please be aware that some leakage can occur from sample bottles sent via air-mail (includes Scotland and Northern Ireland) due to air pressure changes.

There are currently 445 bottled fountain pen inks in our sample catalogue.

Note that colour representation cannot be truly accurate due to variations in scanning, the reproduction on your own computer system and variations in pen characteristics. If your pen is a wet writer, the colour will appear much darker and vice-versa.
