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. Thanks for doing the give-away Ana. What color? Probably some new inks I plan on sampling from then next InkFlight.

  2. Love these quirky Col-r-ings! My favorite ink color…Diamine Meadow. Such a lovely crisp green. Thanks for the opportunity!

  3. Purple is my favorite color and i have several purple inks that will be the first colors I swatch.

  4. My favorite color at the moment is Pelikan Edelstein Aquamarine. It would be fun to see what it looks like on a Col-o-ring.

  5. My favorite colors are deep red, dark green and deep blue. Thanks for the chance to start swatching!

  6. Cool giveaway! First ink I’d swatch is Noodler’s Texas Bluebonnet, which I think is currently exclusive to Dromgoule’s in Houston.

  7. I don’t have much experience with ink colors so for now I must say Pelikan 4001 Royal Blue is very nice.

  8. You nailed it in your picture – Monteverde Olivine ink. That’s what I use for signing legal documents. (Lamy Safari 1.5mm nib)

  9. My favorite ink (right now) is Iroshizuku Ku-jaku, but I’m looking forward to swatching my new bottles of Noodler’s Liberty’s Elysium and KWZ Honey.

  10. Thank you for the givewaway! The first ink I will swatch will be Robert Oster Fire & Ice, because I am obsessed with its shading right now.

  11. My favorite color(s) is split between Parker Penman Emerald Green which has been my preferred signature and personal note ink since it came out in the early 90’s. Fortunately I was able to buy a half a dozen bottles of it shortly after it was discontinued around 2001 and one or two more since but I am sadly down to my last bottle and quarter unless I find some more at a reasonable price. My favorite everyday writing ink is old school Waterman IG Blue-Black which I have using since I was in the Third grade when I learned how to write cursive using a fountain pen many years ago. The first color I would swatch woul be the bottle of Organic Studio Thoreau Walden Pond I just ordered.

  12. I think I’ll swab Emerald of Chivor first. It’s one of my favorites though I’m still pretty new to fountain pens.

  13. My favourite ink is PI Tsutsuji
    I’ll probably swatch the inks I get at the SF Pen Show first. ^_^

  14. If I have to pick only 1 favorite ink, then Diamine Majestic Blue is the one, right now! Thanks for the giveaway!

  15. Hi Ana, my current favorite ink color is, AND my first swatch would be Sailor Jentle Ultramarine. I have been wanting to try out your Col-o-rings!! Fingers crossed
