In 2019 I worked with the team at Diamine, whose packaging I'd been designing since their 150th anniversary inks, to create the world's first inknovative advent calendar that contained only ink, and it sold out almost immediately. It's returned for a fifth year - in dashing black, silver and gold this time, with 25 brand new inks.

(Beware; I'm not done with the ink puns.)


Behind every door is a 12ml bottle of ink, a different colour for every day. Some are sheening inks, some are metallic, some shimmer, some standard and the wonder of scented and chameleon inks. This year, those are joined by Extreme Sheens and Star Brights. I have seen a few with my own eyeballs, and they are exquisite.


And unlike other advent calendars which always end on 24th, this one includes a larger bottle of ink specially for Christmas Day.


Every calendar ordered comes with a little extra gift that will further satisfy your ink cravings. The packaging is illustrated by me, and the whole thing is designed, made, assembled and packaged in the UK.


This years's colours are rumoured to inklude:

Wilted Rose, Noble Fir, Grotto, Lemon & Lime, Vibe, Cosmic Glow, Cranberry, Nutmeg, Good Tidings, Tundra, Wishing Tree, Pine Needle, Baltic Breeze, Forest Gateau, Fruit Cocktail, Icy Lilac, Potpourri, Marley, Lullaby, Sleigh Ride, Salted Caramel, Winterberry, Mint Twist, Chilly Nights and Snow Globe


Limited stock - pre-order now for delivery in October. Purchase guarantees you a calendar and free gift.
