Levenger Ink Cartridges 16 Standard
Poem, The Ink is My Voice
The ink flows much as my blood,
flowing, coursing onto page,
creating poetry to give to the world.
This ink is so fine it leaves the tip
of the pen in a smooth line
adding body to my words,
giving shape to my inner most
Each color be it black, forest green,
regal, or claret, is stunning and clear
on the page. Clarity that often
skips my mind becomes clear
with the swipe of the pen.
Each cartridge sits carefully
tucked in a drawer, laying on a bed
of long forgotten velvet that once
belonged to my childhood wardrobe.
Somehow I think memories flow from
velvet to ink, then transform ideas
into beauty of color and pattern.
The call of ink to become the written word
beacons and cartridge replaced easily so
words are not stalled.
My voice is heard because of this ink, it sings,
preaches, digresses, implores.
My voice is magical in amethyst, coloring
page and imagination.

There is nothing quite like the joy of using a beautiful fountain pen, filled with excellent quality ink. Public schools may be giving up on cursive writing, but those of us who appreciate the art will not only enjoy the ability to read the Declaration of Independence, but will also be grateful for the gift of writing our own declarations - and invitations, and thank you notes, and personal letters.

Love these cartridges!
I have used these cartridges for years. I particularly love the fact that I can get my custom color -- cocoa. I just don't like black or blue ink. They're BORING!! Levenger is the only source for cocoa cartridges. Please, don't ever stop producing them!

The colors are vibrant. I have used several different colors and each color is beautiful and flows well. I have also bought generic inks from craft stores and they are not the high quality of Levenger's inks. Soon, I will try the bottled ink. I have yet to be displeased with a Levenger's product.

Cartridge ink refills
Have been using Levenger cartridge ink refills for my fountain pen purchased three years ago. Many colors have run through the nib and they are always very pure in tone. Recently purchased a Pilot Prera Demonstrator Fountain Pen and can't wait for those ink cartridges to arrive so that my journal thoughts put down on a daily basis will be bold, bright and clear to the reader. Thank you for always sending the refill cartridges minus the shipping and handling charges; that is really a big savings. Look forward to using Levenger for many years (and journals) to come!!

A catalog vignette years ago was the beginning of my flirtation with the concept of always writing with one particular color. When I married into the fortunate surname Green, one of the benefits was the obvious choice for my signature color. Forest is refined but vibrant and it is my ink for life! I love the effect of this deep hue on everything from quick notes jotted on scraps to meticulous efforts that will be treasured.

These cartridges are great in my Levenger TrueWriter fountain pens or my Chesterton Convertible Rollerball. Great color, never clog, writes all day long. Plus, you've got a bunch of colors to choose from, not just the traditional red, blue, or black.

New Pen, New Color, New Beginnings!
My fiancée and children gave me the lovely Teal "True Writer" as a graduation present when I finished my MBA this Spring. In addition, they included a box of the Teal cartridges. I love having both this beautiful, stylish pen and a coordinating ink for my Circa notebook, and for signing documents. Both the pen and the ink color are very unique, and I have received many comments and compliments on them. I am so very glad to have added this pen and ink to my repertoire!

Great selection of color and good quality!
So far i have tried and used 2 different colors of ink cartridges: cobalt blue and claret. Both are showing on paper pretty much like they do on the computer screen. I especially like the claret hue.
The ink in the cartridges is easy to attch into the pens I use, and ink flows easily after 2-3 good shakes. The flow is consistent enough even with fine nibs and it dries within a reasonable amount of time compared with other inks I use (Pelikan and Waterman mostly).
My only gripe is regarding price-to-quantity ratio: The price for cartridges is a little steep for what other cartridges sell for, and the cartridges are only 80-85% full of ink - less than most other (even generic) cartridges. I am however willing to put up with the price for the nice selection and cool colors in stock.

Love the inks; want wilder colors
I love my fountain pens and enjoy the amethyst, bahama blue, teal, and shiraz colors, but I would love to see more outre colors like magenta or orange/rust.
