Did you know sells Ink Samples?

March 17, 2015

This is probably old news to many of you – but I just discovered you can order ink samples from They’ll send you 2ml samples of any ink they carry, for only $1.25 a vial.

Goulet Samples

I think it’s great marketing! Lets you do one or two test drawings, and I know I’ll be back to order a few bottles of the right colors.

I also bought a Noodler’s Creaper Flex and Konrad Brush Pen to try out. More on this when I get a chance to go doodling.

    Down the rabbit hole, Marc. The sample bottles are also a great way to carry refill ink. — Larry

    I am in the market for a new fountain pen that allows me to use ink in this way. My old fountain pen did not survive being shipped across the Atlantic. Thanks, therefore, for bringing my attention to this company. I await your review.

      Send them a note, they respond quickly and can answer just about any question you might have. I have even call them to speak to a real person again very helpful and knowledgeable.

    Waiting for your review on the brush pen and how it compares to the Kuretake No. 13.

    I love Goulet Pens! I learned of them a couple years ago from an Urban Sketcher discussion on flickr. They are a family business and have great customer service. I enjoy Brian’s video tutorials about using and caring for fountain pens. I agree with Larry and use the sample vials to carry extra ink.

    Looking forward to the reviews. Why yes, Goulet used to (don’t know if they still do) have a subscription service for sampling inks on a regular basis. Great way to try something new. I think they have the best price for Carbon ink also? Speaking of Noodlers..I’ve heard that some folks have successfully put Zebra G nibs into Noodlers pens (Ahab maybe??) by attaching the feed. Have not tried that, but I have been playing with the dip nibs you recommended. I confess that the blue pumpkin is a beautiful experience over the speedball.. Darn it Marc Holmes!! Down the rabbit hole indeed! ;)

    I have purchased ink and nibs from them. Their customer service people are the best, and very knowledgeable about fountain pens.

    I was introduced to the Goulet Pen Company by Brenda Swenson at SketchBook Skool. For you the fun is just beginning. I use Noodler’s Beaver ink in my Creaper. It’s water soluble & I use a brush pen with it. For general sketching i use the Noodler’s Ahab Flex with Noodler’s Black Bullet Proof ink. I now have a second Ahab to carry in my purse and a 3rd filled right now with Noodler’s Elysium. I sketch with my pens daily and have become a Noodler’s Nut! Enjoy. Oh yes, I love your book though I am just getting started with it.
