The Skrip Well was intended as a way to get all of the ink out of a bottle. Bottles of Skrip were manufactured with a small glass “well” near the top of the bottle. When the ink level got low in the bottle, the ink could be manipulated inside of the capped bottle until it was in the well. Once there, it was more easily accessible for filling. This feature remained in Skrip bottles until 2002, proof of its functionality and popularity. Indeed, it was so popular, old Skrip bottles are still used for ink storage for the very purpose of getting maximum use out of a bottle of ink
