Black Calligraphy Ink

Black is the basic ink that all calligraphers need in their collection. Simple and classic it is a must have for practice and projects alike.

Did you know you can customise ink trio and make a saving?

This ink comes in a 15ml pot and is the perfect consistency for pointed pen calligraphy.

All inks are for use with a dip pen. After use, wipe round the edges to stop the ink drying and the lid sticking.

If you find the ink is too watery for the consistency that you like then leaving the lid off for a little bit will enable some of the water will evaporate. You can also add a touch of gum arabic to the ink to thicken it slightly.

We test all our inks with Nikko G nib. If you are using a different nib then the results may vary slightly but all pointed nibs should be fine with these inks.

This ink is for use with good quality practice papers or art papers, due to the water content it will bleed on low-quality papers such as printer paper.

Please note that the colours in photos can vary slightly between screens.

FANTASTIC customer service!

I love this brand of Black Calligraphy Ink for my dip pen and when I was caught out with very little in my stock to complete a project, I contacted The Calligraphy Store who posted me out more the same day. I can’t thank them enough for their fantastic customer service and quick responses. And the ink? Sublime deep black, perfect for dip pens!

Excellent Quality of Products

I was so pleased with my recent order From The Calligraphy Store. The selection of nibs has given me a great opportunity to explore different styles at an affordable price. The Modern Calligraphy and Hand Lettering book is beautiful to read and really informative too. I would highly recommend for anyone interested in improving their calligraphy or for beginners. My order arrived in good time and was beautifully packaged.



Lauren was so quick to respond to a query I had, and I received my item within 2 days. Lovely ink, will definitely be ordering more colours!
