What if I were to launch my own ink?

I’ve long desired to launch a physical, fountain-pen related product in addition to my videos.  Something you can use and enjoy.  Although it is tempting to launch a pen, that’s quite an elaborate process: design, production, etc..  Therefore, I was thinking of launching a fountain pen ink.  I am not a chemist, so I am definitely not going to be mixing all kinds of chemicals to concoct a writing fluid, but I have contacted a producer of fountain pen inks, and the initial response was enthusiastic.

However, before I pull the trigger on anything, I would love to get your input.  Given my family name, I would love to launch a brown ink – and I love well-shaded brown inks.  But I would love to hear what you are looking for in an ink.  Clearly, good behaviour, little feathering, and so on.  But what are you interested in colour-wise?  Light brown?  Dark brown?  What would you like to see?  What would make or break an SBREBROWN ink for you?  Please take a minute to give me your input below: I’d love to hear from you!

Many thanks in advance!
