Hello pen and ink lovers.
I have been wanting to try the Akkerman inks, but have been put off by not knowing which one to choose, the bottle size if I get it wrong and the postage cost. So I have come up with a cunning plan if some people will join me.
I would buy 30 bottles, to keep cost of postage as reasonable as is possible. http://www.vulpennen...AkkInkt000.html
When the bottles arrive I will split the bottles into 30 5ml samples and then I will send everyone one sample of each colour plus one empty super cool looking bottle.
Costs will be
bottle of ink £14.27
postage from Netherlands ?
syringe and vials for ink split £7
packing and postage from me to you £5
The costs will be refined in a little as time goes on. I am waiting to hear postage from Akkerman, then I can add that cost. I will be surprised if postage from the Netherlands puts it over £30 per person, but I could be wrong in that.
Please let me know any thoughts you have.
To join please send me a PM with your email address. Due to the financial risk I will post the name of anyone inconsiderate enough to say they will take part who then does not send payment when requested.
I must reiterate, to join send me a PM asking to join, but only if you are going to be committed to paying your share.
