Most of the products I have written about on The Ink Smudge have been paid for by me, without any rebate, credit and so on, the list below contains all of the products I have received either for free or for a discounted price, and why I received it. I’m going to link to the products, at the place I got them from when possible, and not link them at all if I can’t find the product at their site,

Everything will be listed here, no matter if I got “just because” or for the purpose of reviewing it. Why? Because it is the right thing to do.
