Noodler's inks are known for their affordability, wide range of colors, and good performance on more absorbent papers that are not normally fountain pen friendly. They are also known for their distinctive label art, featuring unique drawings that often reflect their creator's strongly held political and economic ideals. Dedicated to keeping prices as low as possible, Noodler's uses simple bottles and packaging, with boxes made of recycled paper. All Noodler's inks are 100% made in the USA.
This ink is part of Noodler's Baystate series of intensely vivid inks, inspired by a 1940s recreation of inks used in colonial Boston.
- Water Resistant: This ink resists the effects of water. It may still smear, discolor, or run slightly if exposed to water, but anything written with it will remain legible.
- Forgery Resistant: This ink is resistant to lasers, alcohols, and solvents used by forgers and check-washers.
- Noodler's Baystate inks have a unique formulation and should not be mixed with any inks except other Baystate inks. Clean your pen thoroughly before and after using this ink, as any traces will react with other inks and potentially clog the pen. We do not recommend using these inks in vintage pens or in very valuable pens.
- This ink can stain plastic and other hard surfaces it comes in contact with. These stains can usually be removed by cleaning with a 10:1 solution of water and bleach.
- This ink may come in either a glass or plastic bottle and vary from the bottle pictured.
- Glass Noodler's ink bottles are filled to the brim with ink. If you receive this ink in a glass bottle, be careful when opening it to avoid spilling.
