FPN INK UPDATE 10/11/11

Changing of the guard

The Ink sale is over, however if you sent an order prior to today the sale price will be honored.

The remainder of the stock is being transferred to the new ink person and he will also be getting a new case of the van Gogh Starry Night Blue.

There will be a new ordering system and information on that should be coming soon. Please do not send order until the new system is set up.

Thank you all for your patience.








This account is unmanaged.
Please direct questions and comments to FPN Admin email, or directly to admin Wim (wimg).
 
Thank you very much in advance.
 
Warm regards,
The FPN Admin Team

I love both of those inks. A 4.5oz size of each is sweet.
With the new FPN rules, now I REALLY don't know what to put in my signature.

In the body of the note you list starry night as the second 4.5 oz bottle instead of tulipe noire...if it is truly starry night I will take one but suspect it is a typo!

Sadly, the FPN store doesn't work on my computer, will there be an alternate way to order FPN ink? What are the 'other' colors hinted at above?!

Wondering,
Rusty

Hi Rusty,

Please reread the message: ordering of inks is via the old process, i.e., sending an email to the admin mail box with appropriate message title.

The 'other colors' refers to the two other ones we have available (GMB and DTN). Once Elaine has sold out all of her remaning stock, the new person will start selling these too.

HTH, warm regards, Wim

The current stock is being sold through the old method as shown above. I'm sure that when the inks are sold in the FPN Store they will an alternate method for those who can't use the store.

Sorry, the "other" colors refer to the Tulipe and the Brown, meaning that when I run out of each color they will be available at the usual price from the new distributor.

Thank you, Elaine, Wim. Yes, that's what I meant, when the original stock is gone and the new stock is being sold through the store. I hope you're right Elaine.

Blessings,
Rusty

How is Tulip Noire compared to Black Swan In Australian Roses? I still need a good purple, but I don't want to duplicate or near-duplicate BSAR, though I'm using that one up really fast.

I'd say it's a completely different color altogether.

Tulipe Noire and BSAR are similar colors, but very different performing inks. BSAR shading is more dramatic and of course, exhibits the "black swan" effect.

Yeah ... they sure look like two different colors in the scan to me, also.

Update 8/27/11 1:25 pm

If you got a shipping notice yesterday, those packages made it to the post office, but I don't know how the storm will affect delivery. Due to the coming storm the post office closed early today and I was unable to ship today's ink. The two people who received shipping notices today and the one Canadian person who did not will experience a delay. I hope to be able to get to the post office on Monday, but that depends on how much damage we get.

There are a few invoice that need to go out. Those and any others that arrive this weekend will be taken care of as long as we have power.
Inventory:

4.5 oz Bottles of Galileo Manuscript Brown = SOLD OUT
Remaining 4.5 oz Bottles of Dumas Tulipe Noire = 3
3 oz bottles of Brown = 29
3 oz bottles Tulipe = 41

I expect the next trip to the post office will be Monday, but may be longer depending on power.
