Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Post Comment

UPDATE: We’re all out of ink! Thanks to all who participated, and check back next year for more…

In honor of St. Patrick’s Day–and the beautiful spring weather–I am pleased to announce our second annual J. Herbin Green and Orange ink giveaway!

Please write to us c/o the Contact Us form with your name, mailing address and first and second choices for ink colors. Your ink will be mailed to you before the end of the month.

You can see all the greens and orange here on the J. Herbin website.

We hope you enjoy them, and if you create any sketches, artwork or fun doodles, we would love to have a photo for this blog!

For the “white” in the Irish flag I will include a sample of Clairefontaine paper.

Growing up with the last name of “Doherty” everyone always expected us to have corned beef and cabbage on St. Patrick’s Day.  We didn’t. Since it was a holiday, my sister and I could pick out any meal we wanted. So every St. Patrick’s Day we had my mother make spaghetti and meatballs!

I was glad to hear that actor Malachy McCourt and his family celebrated the day with Italian food, too!   Read the whole story here.

Have a wonderful day!   Thank you for reading and being part of this community.

And thank you to Biffybeans for her beautiful photography!

  1. Thank you so much for my bottle of lierre sauvage, sent all the way from NYC to Devon, UK!!! I had promised myself that I would be good and finish up the cartridge in the “green” pen before .. but by lunchtime it was gone, the converter was fitted and the pen was filled ….

  2. I received my giveaway bottle of Lierre Sauvage late last week along with a nice little pocket-size Clairfontaine notebook. Thanks so much for the generous giveaway!

    On Monday I received a brand-new Lamy 2000 with EF nib via FedEx from Malaysia. Of course, I inked it with the new ink. So far I’m loving the combination.

  3. So did you have corned beef and cabbage on Columbus Day? 🙂

    Thanks very much to all at Exaclair for this wonderful opportunity to try an ink!
