Congratulations 2015 Graduates!

All the years of hard work have finally paid off: a new round of students are about to experience the victory of graduation! If you’d like to share in the celebration by presenting your favorite graduate with a gift, we would heartily recommend the timeless writing instrument the fountain pen. Many modern students have never used a fountain pen but once they experience it, it becomes a writing tool that they treasure for a lifetime. As your graduate begins their career a fountain pen can add a touch of style and sophistication to their professional or creative image.

12 Reasons We Love to Write With Gray Fountain Pen Ink

Stormy Grey Fountain Pen Ink is the latest addition to J. Herbin’s 1670 Anniversary Ink collection. The deep coal gray (anthracite) color with flecks of gold was inspired by J. Herbin sailing the stormy seas, encountering dark and wild oceans. The fine golden flecks in the ink are meant to invoke both strikes of lightening across the water, and also its dark and mysterious depths.

Why would anyone want to write with grey ink when there’s plenty of blue and black ink to go around? We’d like to share 12 reasons why we love to write with grey fountain pen ink:
