Stationery Resources

I’ve seen multiple other bloggers share fountain pen resources, and I’ve decided to do something similar. I’ve always found it useful when there is a repository of good information somewhere.

To that end, I’ve created this page with links to sources I’ve found useful in the past, that I read sporadically, or that I currently subscribe to.

I’ve organized the links in each category by alphabetical order, although I have given preference to my own links and put them at the top of each grouping.

If you have a favorite stationery resource that isn’t listed below, send it it to me.

Swab Comparisons

NOTE: I’m providing these links because they are resources, but not all of them provide information about how/if they color adjust for true-to-life accuracy. Also, some colors are notoriously difficult to photograph (like reds) so it’s usually better to compare colors in a single photo.
