Recommended papers:The stock insert being a tipped fountain pen nib allows one to use a wide variety of common and premium papers. For the Zebra G/Osprey EF Flexpert unit, some recommended papers to use include: HP Premium 32lb presentation paper, Rhodia, Vellum, and professional resume paper. We will be updating this section with more detailed writing samples and tests to provide a guide for what papers work best with this ink on different applicators.
When using Zebra g as a dip nib or in Flexpert, if you notice your Azure Main ink is bleeding/feathering, one trick is to dilute the ink. If you create a mixture of 50% distilled water and 50% ink, it can help reduce bleeding as shown by tests conducted on various papers using reservoir fitted Zebra g nib(please see writing samples above and FAQ section on the Azure Main).
Ammonia works well for flushing or cleaning this ink from Flexpert unit.

The Azure Main (to our knowledge) is one of the smallest production inks in the world with 2 cases manufactured for Osprey Pens in 2017. Since then, we have used this ink to reach over 100 schools in the USA. In 2018 and 2019, several bottles were gifted to schools in California, Arkansas, and other states through our CSR program. Even though this ink was made almost 2 years ago, we are still able to use it in 2019. As a testament to the quality of this grassroots product, we have never encountered one single occurrence of mold or spoilage. Despite the last remaining stock sitting in storage for 2 years, this ink works beautifully.
