Papier Plume Midnight Blue

Papier Plume is s stationery shop situated in the heart of the French Quarter in New Orleans. The company began its business in 2001 however the shop was opened in 2007. From what I see on google maps the shop looks quite nice.

Some time ago the company started to offer fountain pen inks. They’re supposed to be hand poured and bottled right in the shop. The inks are water based and described as french inks (imported? anyone knows french private label maker?). At the moment the inks are available in 15 colors and are sold in three bottles: small (15 ml), medium (30 ml), big (50 ml):

Midnight Blue isn’t a typical blue-black I expected. It’s better and more complex. Kind of Evening Blue? It has nice flow and offers some water resistance. Drying time is reasonable.

  1. Now this is a nice blue-black!

    Your Magnetic Blue looks much different than mine… I obtained a sample a couple of months ago and it came out very dark, almost black on Tomoe River and Col-o-ring paper. I think I like yours better.

  2. Huh, I always liked Oxford paper but only now I see that inks shade on it crazily, as compared to even tomoe river…
