Inkstand Post is a personalised ink creation service based on an exchange of letters.
The process begins with you sending us a colour hint that inspires you, such as a photograph or magazine clipping. We’ll reimagine and mix your colour, one drop at a time, and arrange its delivery to you.
Capture your thoughts or a message to someone special with your own unique inks, made just for you.
We hope you’ll find the perfect colours to bring your feelings to life.

Inkstand Post will take a short break while we prepare for a relaunch. The last day for orders is 31 July 2023.
We will be relaunching the service in Autumn. Watch this space!

How Post works

A photograph, magazine clipping or words that are special to you… Enclose the inspiration for your colour in a letter to us.

How to send your colour hint


Receive your colour options

From your colour, we’ll prepare and present three colour options just for you.


Order your selected colour

Once you’ve found your favourite colour, place an order via our online shop. Simply access the order page and enter your order number. For a gift, you’ll have the additional option of ordering your ink together with a pen.
