Make your color, Meet your color

Have you ever wondered why we have to choose from a limited number of pen colors, even though the world is full of color?.

Inkstand is built on the idea that everyone should have a color that truly represents them. Ink samples are prepared drop by drop, allowing you to mix your way towards the color that matches your mood perfectly..

With each drop, your personal ink adds to the joy of writing and expressing yourself on paper..

At Inkstand, we hope to share the enjoyment that comes from bringing a sense of color into your daily life.

Our ink is PIGMENT TYPE.

We have developed the ink together with a Japanese company, [Turner].
Pigment type ink is water resistant and light resistant.
Due to the the pigment components, it will be difficult to clean your pen completely after it dries out on the nib.
