When artists want dark, bold pen strokes that last, they turn to PigmaÃ‚Â® GraphicÃ¢â€žÂ¢ and archival PigmaÃ‚Â® ink. The three large pen nibs are designed to meet the specific needs of illustrators, cartoonists, and manga artists by enabling a broad range of illustration techniques. The 1mm bullet nib is ideal for shading, texturing or filling in large areas. The 2mm and 3mm level chisel nibs can make both thin and thick lines to achieve stylized strokes and creative lettering.
Sakura Color Products invented and patented Pigma ink in 1982. This special formulation of pigment-based ink molecules is more chemically complex and 100 times larger than dye molecules. This makes Pigma ink less susceptible to UV rays, chemical degradation, and pollution from contact with oils and other chemicals. Pigma ink has become the standard for what is defined as reliable, permanent, archival quality ink.
