Van Dieman's Ink for Flywheel Fountain Pen Ink - Type Cabinet Green
Type Cabinet Green, one of three exclusive fountain pen inks produced for us by Van Dieman's Ink. Taking inspiration from around our store, we worked with Peter & Belinda from Van Dieman's Ink to create a small range of custom ink colours that reflect our aesthetic.
Type Cabinet Green is a lovely green ink, on the bluer side, with some wonderful shading. The colour is inspired by the type cabinet that takes pride of place in our letterpress studio. We purchased this cabinet from a local auction about a year before Flywheel came to be, when we were just becoming interested in letterpress printing and the drawers filled with lead type were used to create gift tags that we sold in our sister store, the Drill Hall Emporium. From there more equipment was purchased and we soon needed to open a shop to fit it all! While we don't often use lead type anymore, we have very fond memories associated with this cabinet, particularly creating our logo from the type in one of it's drawers, so it felt only right that an ink was created in honour of it.
