Papier Plume's Chicago Inks: 2018 Edition

Provided for review by Papier Plume!

**Okay, I put this post together before the Chicago Pen Show, and I forgot to hit the "Publish" button. I'm a dumb. Or maybe I was just too busy to think straight at the end of the semester. Anyway, enjoy!**

These two inks are made specially for the Chicago Pen Show this year. Last year, they used the ivy from Wrigley Field and the turquoise of Lake Michigan.This year, we've got the Bears and wine (inspired by this article).

I'm pretty sure that I like the burgundy a bit more than Da Blue, but both of these are pretty cool colors. Both of them are fairly well-behaved, but they do bleed a little bit on 20lb office papers. That's not unusual, but it's worth noting.

These are a part of a limited edition that will be made available at the Pen Show, and thereafter (while supplies last) on their website. Check them out below, and let me know which one you like best.
