 Created in Massachusetts, U.S.A., by Nathan Tardif, Noodler’s Ink is the “smallest ink company in the world with the largest color selection.” Not only does Nathan make Noodler’s Ink 100% in the USA from cap to glass to ink, the labels are even printed with Noodler’s own formulas.

Providing archival quality, Noodler’s Inks are heralded by fountain pen enthusiasts for their variety and reliability. Noodler’s is quite economically focused (as you’ll find via the ink’s stories) and you’ll never find an ink cartridge pre-filled with Noodler’s ink. Straight from Noodler’s website: “Noodler’s refuses to manufacture ink cartridges due to the egregious economics these disposable bits of plastic form as an illusion of value until compared with the economics of the glass bottle.” Therefore, Noodler’s 3-ounce glass bottles stand proud and come filled to the brim so you get every penny’s worth of the ink you love!

Noodler’s Standard Inks

Noodler's Standard Inks (3 oz.)With a wide variety of colors from which to choose, Noodler’s Standard Inks are very saturated, giving you a rich, clean line as you write, and as an added bonus, there is less feathering and bleedthrough. Each ink has a high dye concentration (giving you that saturated color), yet with a neutral pH so they won’t affect your fountain pens. Nathan at Noodler’s aims to make all his inks the most economical on the market. He epitomizes that on the label as “the catfish symbolizes a southern sport that attempts to equalize the struggle between man and animal in the quest for a sense of fair play – and thus a fair price.”

Choose from Noodler’s Antietam, Army Green, Blue, Forest Green, Habanero, Midnight Blue, Navajo Turquoise, Purple, Red, and Standard Green.

Noodler’s Bernanke Inks

Noodler's Bernanke Inks (3 oz.)What drew us to Noodler’s (other than the brilliant variety of inks, of course) was Nathan’s animated nature toward ink creation. In our research, it’s quite obvious his passion for ink and politics leads to the creation of several of the best inks on the market – not simply for the ink, but for the story.  Noodler’s Bernanke Ink is a perfect example.

Created specifically for those who require a fast drying ink, such as left-handed writers and sketchers, it’s available in two colors – Bernanke Blue and Bernanke Black. The ink is directly named for Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke in reference to how quickly Bernanke prints new money (thus he must need such a fast-drying ink!).  Noodler’s Bernanke Ink has a dry time of .5 – 1.5 seconds, living up to its creator’s dream and the delight of fountain pen enthusiasts.
Noodler's Baystate Inks (3 oz.)

Noodler’s Baystate Inks

One specific heralded waterproof ink from Noodler’s is Baystate Blue, based on a classic colonial cobalt ink. Baystate Blue has a slightly more alkaline pH than other Noodler’s inks, but still produces an extremely saturated blue, appearing almost electric on paper.

Noodler’s aims to be the most economical ink on the market and provides not only archival quality with Baystate Blue, but also waterproof quality when dry. Just be careful not to get it on clothes or other items that may stain as it dries quickly!

Noodler’s Bulletproof Inks

Noodler's Bulletproof Inks (3 oz.)
Available in Noodler’s Black or No. 41 Brown, Noodler’s Bulletproof Inks are forgery-resistant, water-resistant, and everlasting. Their durability is a testament to Noodler’s special ink properties that continue to be refined with each batch. Noodler’s Bulletproof inks are free-flowing meaning both Noodler’s Black and No. 41 Brown put down a strong, steady line when writing, without feathering or bleedthrough.

Noodler’s No. 41 Brown is a rich and deeply saturated brown ink with warm tones (named for Senator Scott Brown of Massachusetts). And Noodler’s Black is a truly deep black, showing no shades of grey or the like. Just don’t mix either ink with conventional inks as the fraud-proof properties will be negated. And with such perfect inks to begin with, we’re sure these will both quickly become regulars in your ink supply.
