Galine F

Hello! My name is Galine and I am one half of “Pick n Mix Samples”. We are two colleagues who became friends through a love of fountain pens. We attended the Chester Pen Show, selling ink samples and were delighted to get good feedback. All our inks have been purchased from a variety of established online retailers, and we hope that having a sample will allow you to confidently purchase your next full bottle with these retailers.

We love to use these inks ourselves, and therefore, ensure that each sample that comes to you is entirely representative of the brand (this can be sometimes challenging with shimmer inks). We care for the bottles and do everything we can to ensure that there is no contaminant or mixing between inks.

Currently, we are selling inks that we use and love, so the ranges of inks are not complete. We did get very carried away with some of the new and exciting ink brands like Troublemaker and Dominant Industry and as such, we may not have the personal expertise of these inks, but there are plenty of reviewers online (such as mountain of ink) who will give a more thorough review than we ever could!

At the moment, all samples are being sold as 5ml. If you would like to purchase additional samples, please select "pick up" on the others, which will remove the postage charge.

You may choose up to 8 samples which will still be covered by the £1.05 postage charge.
