We want you to be very happy with your ink. However, we cannot accept any bottle which has been opened. If your package arrives damaged in any way, please send us photos and dispose of the damaged package and we will send you a replacement or a refund. DO NOT return a broken or opened bottle.  


While our inks are pH neutral, we do not guarantee our inks in every pen. If you have a pen that is expensive or holds especial sentimental value, we recommend you only use inks that are approved by the manufacturer. This is especially true for vintage pens with natural rubber parts.

The Cephalopod Series of inks are water soluble, will stain organic materials like your skin or paper but not permanently and will not stain non-organic materials such as stainless steel, glass or tile. Spills are easy to clean with soap and water. However, if the spill surface is very porous, it may be difficult to clean. We recommend you fill your pen carefully on an appropriate surface.

Inks are not intended for human consumption. Please keep out of the reach of children.
