This latest release of new products is BIG! Among the dozens of new items at JetPens are the bottled LAMY T52 Fountain Pen Inks.

The LAMY T52 ink is a beautiful pigment ink line that is safe for fountain pen use. It has a basin inside the bottle, which is meant to assist with filling when the ink level is low. It also comes with a roll of blotter tape that can be used to clean the pen after filling, or to blot writing!

LAMY is known for their excellent quality standards, and this ink certainly upholds that reputation!
