Fountain Pen Ink and Cartridges
What is Noodler’s Ink?
Noodler’s Ink is a brand of fountain pen ink developed by pen collector Nathan Tardiff. Noodler’s is well-known by pen enthusiasts for offering inks in a wide variety of colors and characteristics and is made entirely in the USA – from ink to cap to glass bottle.
All Noodler’s Inks are color-rich, acid free Archival Quality inks; reacting with the cellulose in paper to form waterproof, solvent-proof, and uv-resistant marks.
Ink feathering resistance is also a priority for Noodler's. Which is why Noodler's Inks are formulated to minimize the feathering that normally occurs when writing on such materials as the newspaper crossword puzzle, most recycled smooth papers, and even card board and industrial brown paper, rice paper and tissue thin papers from the far east. With Noodler's Ink, feathering has been virtually eliminated.
Noodler’s Bulletproof Black Ink
Noodler’s Black Ink, in addition to being acid free, waterproof, and fade proof, is also fraud proof. It cannot be altered on a check or envelope by rain or bleach or ammonia. (Noodler’s even has a $1,000 reward for the first person that can safely remove Noodler's black ink from a security bank check, which has been unclaimed.)
Safe for Fountain Pens
Noodler’s is very proud of the qualities their inks provide. Some of these qualities relate to how Noodler’s inks interact with the mechanics of your pen. These inks are designed for use with any fountain pen – new or vintage. Any brand of ink can attack pen parts because all inks generally are corrosive agents. Noodler’s technology has lessened this factor to protect the value of your writing instruments.
It consists of over 97% water content, and can be rinsed or simply rubbed off lucite/celluloid/acrylic/ebonite pens. If dried in the bottle it can be reconstituted with tap water. One word of caution – if mixed with conventional ink the fraud proof ink WILL REVERT TO CONVENTIONAL INK and all those properties will be lost.
And in case you were wondering ... The catfish on the label symbolizes a sport that attempts to equalize the struggle between man and animal in the quest for a sense of fair play … and thus a fair price for Noodler's Inks.
