Inkology: Celebrity Challenge!

Inkology: Celebrity Challenge!

Anderson Pens is proud to present Inkology: Celebrity Challenge! We’ve gathered eight well-known pen and ink enthusiasts (ourselves included) for a fun competition with Sailor Storia inks!

Inkology Celebrity Challenge

First, the inkologists:

Inkologist Participants

It’s no secret we love Sailor inks, and especially Sailor Storia inks! These vibrant shades can (and should) be mixed together to create a whole rainbow of colors! We have challenged each inkologist to create his or her own Sailor Storia ink mix.

The inkologists were only allowed to use 2 to 4 inks in their recipes. The finished recipes were sent to Anderson Pens Headquarters, re-created by the AP Team, and swabbed onto a Col-o-ring. Creating the inks was fun… but voting for the best ink is even “funner!”


Inkology: Celebrity Challenge! will launch on the Anderson Pens Instagram account (@andersonpens) on Monday, June 12, 2017. Here’s the schedule of match ups:

Inkology Challenge Bracket

Four Quater Final Matches will be played, two on Monday, two on Tuesday. Winners of the Quarter Final Matches will compete against each other in two Semi Finals, one on Wednesday, the other on Thursday. The two inks that emerge triumphant through the Quarter and Semi Final Matches will go Head to Head (or Drop to Drop, as it were) in the Championship Match on Friday.

The creator of each ink mix will not be revealed until the end of the competition. Ink mix names are as follows: Acrobat, Cirque de la Mer, Clown Car, Elephant Trunk, Hoodoo Voodoo, Night Balloon, Ringmaster, Unicycle

The winning inks are decided by YOUR votes in the comments on Instagram. Only votes on the Anderson Pens Instagram account will be counted. The Champion Ink will be announced on Monday, June 19.  We will then randomly select one winner to receive… (drum roll, please!)… all EIGHT Sailor Storia Inks AND one Col-o-ring!
