Diamine Shimmer Inks - 12 New Colors coming November 2016

Diamine Shimmer Inks

12 new colors arriving mid-November 2016


 

Diamine announced 12 new Shimmer ink colors for 2016. Each color is rated with the Pantone color code. The new colors have glitter particles (either silver or gold colored) that will glitter in sunlight or bright indoor light. These inks were tested by Diamine for several years before released to the marketplace. The Diamine Shimmer inks will give smooth, consistent ink feed. They are not waterproof, but that makes it easy to clean your pen when you're done with a Shimmer ink color.

Like other glitter style inks, you do have to shake the bottle (or filled pen) regularly to produce an even glitter effect.

The swatches shown above are from the Diamine 2016 announcement. As soon as we get the first bottles, we'll add our own actual ink samples. The expected arrival date is mid November, 2016.

 

Pantone Color Code

What is a Pantone color code? Pantone is a color-matching system designed for the print industry, known as the Pantone Matching System (PMS).  The idea behind the PMS color system is that it allows designers to color match specific colors when a job is produced, regardless of the equipment used to produce the color. (Read more about Pantone at Wikipedia.)
