About

Because you are reading this, you are likely one of few in the world who understands the joy and connection that happens when pen meets paper. You know that the connection goes beyond what is physical, and extends to your inner thoughts, fears, dreams, and beyond. We are on the same page, which is why Ferris Wheel Press has one simple mission: to help everyone Fall in Love with Writing Again. We are so glad you've chosen to be a part of our mission! 

Following the successful introduction of our Brush Fountain Pen, we are now launching a collection of premium fountain pen inks that are the perfect desktop companion to any aspiring stationery lover. 

Ink deserves to be inspiring, from the moment you receive it, to when you draw it into your pen, it should remind you of the magic of writing.

So we created an inspiring set of fountain pen inks, carefully crafted in 3 distinct colours that will spur excitement, creativity, and a feeling of absolute joy every time you write!

Fall in Love with Writing Again with our suite of stationery products that are uniquely designed to speak to the hand, heart and mind.

To select your preferred ink and/or pen colours, you need to first select your backer reward level and complete your payment/contact details. 

When our Kickstarter campaign becomes fully funded (hooray!), we will be reaching out to each one of you at the end of the campaign for your preferred choices through a user-friendly survey. 

Our campaign needs to be fully backed/funded to move forward into production, so be sure to support us and share the news with your stationery loving friends to help us reach our funding goal! Write on!

Disclaimer: All images of ink bottles have been brightened for illustrative purposes only. The finished ink is darker in person.

Risks and challenges

Our mission is to help the world fall in love with writing again, and as a stationery company that has been in business for 9 years we are confident in our ability to deliver this product. Design, testing, and R&D all happens in our Toronto based studio where a team of 20 designers and craftsmen are working tirelessly to bring this project to life.

As we have created many products in the past, the only challenge we foresee is that of logistics and fulfilment in the event that our campaign is massively oversold. However, we have already prepared our partners for this scenario because we are that confident that you will love our product!
