Resource: archival-quality (and beautiful) inks for fountain pen and rollerball
No, not Noodler Sink — Noodler’s Ink!
We are including this information for those of you choosing your materials and who like to use fountain pens. Noodler’s even makes a refillable rollerball pen! They have a wide range of colors and several categories of ink. Here’s an excerpt from their site:
“Many Noodler’s inks such as “eternal” and “bulletproof” inks are made with the ideal of reaching out as far into immortality as the written word permits us to reach — the only way to speak to future generations remains the written word durably made upon the page….” [noodlersink.com/noodlers-durable-ink-classification]
If you visit the site, check out their price comparison to disposable pens (you will be surprised). Green consumers might consider switching from plastic sticks….
Also, all Noodler’s inks are pH neutral so they will not contribute to corrosion in your favorite fountain pens, including that heirloom from your grandfather or grandmother.
Combine these inks with any archival-quality, acid-free, lignin-free writing paper and careful storage, and your ethical will or Lifespan Legacy should last many, many generations.
