Giveaway: Col-o-ring Quirky Editions

I was planning to give these “quirky edition” Col-o-rings away at the D.C. Pen Show but I never found the perfect opportunity so I decided that the best way to do it was to offer them here on the blog. I have two (2) of these quirky editions available.  The only difference is the covers which are misprints but I thought they were pretty cool so I thought you all might like them. The books include the same 100 sheets of 100lb/160gsm as a regular  Col-o-ring.

CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED. Thanks to all who entered.

THE RULES: Leave a comment below and tell me what your favorite ink color is or the first color you will swatch.

FINE PRINT: All entries must be submitted by 10pm CST on Wednesday, August 16, 2017. All entries must be submitted at, not Twitter, Tumblr or Facebook, okay? Winner will be announced on Thursday. Winner will be selected by random number generator from entries that played by the rules (see above). Please include your REAL email address in the comment form so that I can contact you if you win. I will not save email addresses or sell them to anyone — pinky swear. If winner does not respond within 7 days, I will draw a new giveaway winner. Shipping via USPS first class is covered. Additional shipping options or insurance will have to be paid by the winner. We are generous but we’re not made of money. US addresses only please.

  1. My favorite ink color is Finetec gold. It is the first color that I started with and it is still my favorite.

  2. I’m torn between swatching Noodler’s BLUE NOSE BEAR and GENERAL OF THE ARMIES, or Diamine’s Eau de Nil…. but I feel the first swatch should be the high prince of radiant blues, Chivor Emerald, created by Napoleon’s ink maker, J. Herbin. Thanks so much.

  3. I have a passion for purples and I too have a sampler…but I think they would be best for showing off all my zentangle patterns…

    Thank you for the opportunity!

  4. My favorite green-leaning blue ink color is usagiya (by Sailor) #005 Setouchi Marine Blue. My favorite neutralized orange (slightly burnt-ish orange) ink color is Bung Box (by Sailor) Omaezaki no yu-yake. My favorite spring green ink color is Diamine Meadow. OK I’ll stop now. 😎
