Noodler's inks are known for their affordability, wide range of colours, and good performance on more absorbent papers that are not normally fountain pen friendly. They are also known for their distinctive label art, featuring unique drawings that often reflect their creator's strongly held political and economic ideals. Dedicated to keeping prices as low as possible, Noodler's uses simple bottles and packaging, with boxes made of recycled paper. All Noodler's inks are 100% made in the USA.
- Glass Noodler's ink bottles are filled to the brim with ink. If you receive this ink in a glass bottle, be careful when opening it to avoid spilling.
- Because Noodler's inks are hand made in small batches, the colours can vary slightly from one bottle to another.
Midnight Blue is an excellent blue-black ink with great shading. It also performs admirably in regards to bleed through which is slight even on the worst paper. Words remain legible after being doused in water which is great for important notes and documents. Drying times aren't ideal- on Rhodia paper the ink takes several minutes to dry. Another issue with it is cleaning; the high saturation leads to tedious and lengthy cleanings. We highly recommend this ink for its great shading and slight water resistance.
