Make your color, Meet your color

Have you ever wondered why we have to choose from limited colors for a pen, although the world is full of different colors? This is how inkstand was started.

We help you to find the “color of the moment”. Mix inks drop by drop, and try again and again.
In the process, you will meet the color matches your feeling of the moment.
It may be a new discovery for you or an apposite image to the one in your mind.

Your color colors your daily life.
It brings the joy of writing and expressing yourself.
How wonderful your feeling of the moment lasts semi-permanently on the paper.

We hope to deliver the pleasure of using a sense of color to as many people as we can at inkstand.

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.
