    Default What is your go to Holiday Ink?

    Iím curious to see what everyone uses during the holidays to sign cards and notes.

    Last year I used Lamy Pacific Blue which matched the cards pretty nicely, I thought.

    Two shimmering inks that I bought when Diamine first introduced the range in shops. I only use enough to write annual Christmas cards, less than 1/4 fill each in Pelikan M400 with broad nibs, so I'll never need to buy another bottle (unless they grow mold).

    Oh, you said ink! I thought you said "go to holiday drink", which is 3 fingers of Seagrams with 2 ice cubes. My bad. Don't have a favorite holiday "ink".
    "What are moon-letters?" asked the hobbit full of excitement. He loved maps, as I have told you before; and he also loved runes and letters, and cunning handwriting, though when he wrote himself it was a bit thin and spidery.

    I prefer a slightly darker green shimmer ink with gold particles for my holiday cards:

    So would I, but I'm reluctant to buy yet one more bottle! Hmm, perhaps I should add a few drops of brown or black.

    I keep intending to send Christmas cards but have yet to successfully do so. When it does happen, I will probably use J Herbin 1670 red and green inks (but I may look at Diamineís equivalents to see if I like the colors more).

    If I was going to use a dark red shimmer I would use Diamine Dragon Blood

    I filled my Sheaffer Targa with J. Herbin 1670 Rouge Hematite and it seemed to set inside the section. It took a lot of cleaning out. Maybe it was partly my fault and I left it in there for too long.
