Col-o-ring Ink Testing Book

With the combined efforts of The Well-Appointed Desk and Skylab Letterpress, they put their heads together to create THE PERFECT INK TESTING BOOK, The Col-o-ring.

Each book contains: 

• 2”x4” with die cut rounded corners 

• 100 sheets of 100lb/160gsm European paper from a 400-year-old mill 

• acid-free bright, natural white paper

• slightly toothy paper but not enough to catch even the sharpest dip nib 

• sturdy chipboard covers letterpress printed with a crisp application of "afterburner" black 

• handy split ring so pages can be removed, rearranged and reinserted as needed

Paper was rigorously tested to ensure that inks would not feather, bleed or show through. Inks can be tested with fountain pen, glass pen, dip pen, swabs or paintbrush on the front or back of the sheet.

Col-o-ring Ink testing books are printed, assembled and designed in Kansas City. Paper was sourced from a local distributor.

A very handy accessory! June 18, 2017
Reviewer: ChrisLJ from TROY, OH United States  
These will be great when I need to compare different brands or varieties of colors I have in bottles and sample vials. I haven't been able to use it much yet but so far I'm very pleased.

I'm using a fountain pen or glass dip pen to write the info, and a knife blade to slather on the swatch. If done right I can go from light to dark, and also show any shading or sheen. Not as good as high end paper but still quite nice, and also no show through on the heavy card stock. A great item.

My favorite ink cataloging June 5, 2017
Reviewer: Eli Anthony from Perry, FL United States  
Ink looks better than any other ink testing/cataloging method I've tried.

This, along with a "Currently Inked" notebook is all a man needs to keep track of and recall the brilliance of any ink that's ever passed through his grubby ink loving paws.
