Robert Oster Inks

Robert Oster Signature Inks are handmade in Australia. The recyclable PET bottles are manufactured in Australia's first carbon-neutral plastics plant. The contents and packaging of my Inks are all nature-friendly and the colors a genuine inventory of the Australian palette. Robert Oster Signature originates from one of the most famous wine-producing regions of the world, the Coonawarra district of South Australia, an idyllic setting with great influence on the senses. There is my inspiration. It’s a joy to share it with you.

Beautiful Shading Ink

This is a lovely ink that has a subtle red shading. It is such an uplifting shade to journal with. Well behaved as well and fast drying.

Christy Scarafile (East Liverpool, US)
Beautiful creamy Teal!

This is an absolutely gorgeous color! I bought it to go in my TWSBI prussian green Eco and it matches perfectly. I really love this color and I was so touched by the story behind it that I had to get it. xo

Angus Ogilvy (Edinburgh, GB)
My new favourite ink

I absolutely love this ink. Everything I have ordered from Galen Leather has been top quality but I didn't expect to love this Sooty Shearwater ink as much as I do. What a beautiful way to be remembered.

Karin Webster (Tulsa, US)
Memorial Ink

This is such a beautiful color teal blue with a slight sheen of pink, in a generous size bottle! Very pleased with this color.

One of my favorites

I have yet to go wrong with a Galen Leather special edition ink. This ink is a beautiful turquoise blue ink that with shades well even with a fine nib.

Zeynep picked a wonderful ink.

Robert Oster makes some very well behaved inks and Zeynep liked a very pretty color. Yes, I like this ink!

Steve (San Marino, US)
Beautiful ink for a wonderful woman

This ink shades between teal green and a darker greenish blue on graphillo paper, flows very smooth and well behaved in the pen. The touching tribute behind it is the cherry on top.

Paul Loccisano
A beautiful ink

This is a wonderful colour - slightly more turquoise/green I thought than the test card, however, this may have just been on the tomoe river paper and pen I was using. The ink behaves well like most Robert Osters and is a pleasure to use. Beautiful.
