Organics Studio was started in 2012 with help from the Fountain Pen Network and Bertram’s Inkwell. The founder of the operation, Tyler, was a sophomore at the University of Maryland studying biochemistry and organic chemistry.
His personal hobby soon merged with his interest in chemistry as he started a job at Bertram’s Inkwell in Rockville, MD.
After years of using fountain pens and experimenting with hundreds of inks, Tyler decided to try his hand at making inks. His original recipes were loosely based on a vintage Carter ink recipe, with a modernized ingredient list. Within a few months, he took his prototype inks to Bert for his feedback. Bert gave his seal of approval, and soon the inks were on the shelves at the now deceased White Flint Mall.
Tyler took to the Fountain Pen Network to get further feedback on his new lineup of inks, where their popularity grew quite quickly. By the end of 2012, the inks were widely available across the US and are now available in the UK with Grand Vision pens offering a huge range of their popular inks.
