Purple (or violet) ink has long been one of the most popular alternative colours in our range. We have an enormous range of purple ink items, in just about about every category. Purple rollerballs, violet ballpoints, purple highlighter pens, violet markers, purple fountain pen ink, you name it. Purple ink is becoming a popular alternative to red for marking schoolwork - apparently it does less emotional damage to the sensitive little darlings than red (see also: green ink, and 'mad, world gone'). Purple ink is also used in hospital pharmacy departments; for making navigational chart corrections; and for colour-matching your purple prose. Aesthetic note: While purple and violet may mean completely different colours to an artist, designer or the casual aesthete, they are terms that are normally used interchangeably by pen companies. Hence purple here covers quite a spectrum, with some closer to magenta than purple, whilst others are pale violets.
