Once Upon a Design

In the latest special edition ink series, the friendly animal cast of Ferris Wheel Press find themselves on a journey all the way to Japan, where they visit the home of Ginza Tsutaya Books in their award-winning building, the GINZA SIX.

In this collection, we start by appreciating the modern architectural elements of GINZA SIX, which also houses 13 of the most renowned luxury fashion brands in the world. We then venture into the stunning Tsutaya Books store, where our Canadian animal friends explore the wood and brass-clad stationery floor. Finally, we find ourselves arriving at one of Tsutaya Books’ signature display cases, which showcase writing instruments, stationery treasures, and precious objects from all over the world. Discover all the details of their incredible shop through our latest Curious Collaborations Series ink collection.

We have had a lot of luck ordering with Ferris Wheel Press. Not only are the colours cool and ink writes very well, but they have amazing customer service. We ordered this ink during a sale around Christmas or New Years, and unfortunately when it shipped it got damaged. Upon receiving the damaged product, customer service was really easy to work with in getting the item replaced, and communicating on the timing of it to avoid further breakage during the next cold spell that was forecasted. Now that we have the replacement ink, it's a great addition to our growing collection!


My experience with ordering from the website was very pleasant. I loved looking each day to see what the deal of the day was and had fun browsing. I was a bit disappointed that so many products were sold out and fear that I will not be able to get some of the more stunning inks that I saw.
The Inks are amazing....all of the ones I purchased are wonderful. I plan on using them to not only write a letter or two, but want to incorporate them into my card making and watercolour painting. I am so happy that we met Ferris!

Customer service is absolutely appalling. I was sent a wrong pen and have been inquiring for a month now, all I ever get is stuff like "we will check with our team" and no follow-up.
