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.

Obvious. Obviously Brilliant! May 28, 2017
Reviewer: MrsDrG  
This is one of those things where I look at it and think "Obviously someone came up with this idea," because it's perfect. Good quality paper which can be swabbed and written on. Doesn't show off the best in all inks (read: sheen) but gives you the very best idea of what an ink will look like in day-to-day paper situations. Unless you work in heaven where everything is Tomoe River.

Such a great way to organize! May 20, 2017
Reviewer: Leslie from CA United States  
This is a simplistic and perfect design for keeping track of all the different inks you possess. The paper is nice and even allows for some great sheen to happen. The price is completely reasonable for what you get. I would highly recommend!
