Concept


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 Pigment-based Ink

インクスタンドの顔料インクについて

above : pigment type ink


To Enjoy our ink...

Most of the fountain inks are “dye-based” ink, which makes a good match on paper and easy for maintenance, yet it’s also known as water soluble ink and NOT fading-resistant. This is why we chose “pigment-based” ink, which enables your writings stay semi-permanently as it is water/light resistant. We produced our pigment ink with Turner Colour Works Ltd., which is one of the top paint manufacturers in Japan, and succeeded in producing “mixable” and “hardly-clogged” ink which we have at inkstand today.

Here are main features of pigment ink;
Water Resistant
It can be used to address postcards/envelopes since it is not water soluble after dries up. You can also use it as a line-draw for watercolor painting.

Light Resistant
Your writings will stay semi-permanently. Store in dark places to keep them a lot longer.
Bright color in bottle
Pigment color stands out in bottle, so it helps to recognize a color easily.

 

*NOTES;

* We don’t have any guarantee on the pens NOT sold at Kakimori or inkstand when any problem caused with our inks.
* Pigment ink is difficult to clean with water after dries up.
