How do I keep my pen inks moist?

Keeping Pen Inks from Drying Out

Ion gel pen inks need to be kept sealed away from air, preferably in a desk organizer box or in your pen case. Make sure the caps on the ion gel ink pens are firmly in place between uses. Keep cartridge fountain pen ink refills stored in original packaging and tighten the caps on the fountain pen ink pots. India ink particularly dries out fast, so keep the cap screwed tight on the bottle. Also, particularly with fountain pens, clean your instrument regularly to keep pen inks moist.
