Tired of throwing away empty fountain pen ink cartridges? Do you want more ink per fill than you’re getting with your converter? Here’s a guide to help you learn How to Refill Fountain Pen Ink Cartridges! It’s simple, easy, and reduces plastic waste! It also allows you to use other inks that may not be available in cartridge form for your pen.
How To Refill Fountain Pen Ink Cartridges
First things first, here’s what you’ll need. First, a clean empty ink cartridge. Then, your favorite bottle of ink. Most importantly, you need a blunt-tipped syringe to use in filling the cartridge.
The process used to Refill Fountain Pen Ink Cartridges utilizes very simple techniques:
- First and foremost, open your bottle of ink. Then, take your syringe and carefully fill it to, or just past, the 1ml mark. Most fountain pen ink cartridges can only hold 1ml of ink, however, there are some that can hold up to 2ml, like the Pelikan Edelstein Cartridges or Monteverde Magnum Cartridges.
- After filling your syringe, gently put the tip into the empty cartridge. Very carefully fill the cartridge, making sure to go slow. If you aren’t careful here, you can end up with a mess, or some seriously inky fingers!
- Unfortunately, ink cartridges, after they have been punctured, cannot be resealed, so you cannot store these cartridges for later use. So, take your favorite pen and load your newly refilled cartridge into it!
