Dearest Ladies and Gentlemen Members of our Fountain Pen Nut House on the digital prairie :D,

Posted Image

We would like to inform you all that our FPN inks are available for ordering again.

We will for now use an ordering procedure very similar to what we used to do, namely by sending a request by email to
FPN Ink Orders

Please put the words "FPN Ink Order" in the message header so we may easily separate ink orders from other questions.

So, how will the procedure work, you may ask?

1) Send in your request for inks, with an email, as above, to FPN Ink Orders with "FPN Ink Order" in the message header

2) In the message body please do indicate how many bottles of ink you would like to receive, of FPN Galileo Manuscript Brown (GMB), and/or of FPN Dumas Tulipe Noire (DTN), and/or of FPN Van Gogh Starry Night Blue (VGSN)

Please state it like this so it's easy for me to read over quickly.
For example:
(quantity - size - color)
1 -3oz blue
2 - 3oz tulipe
1 - 3oz brown


3) Also indicate how you would like it shipped, although we would prefer USPS, due to time constraints. Please add full shipping information to speed up the process as much as possible, i.e., your shipping address in full.

4) Next step will be that you will receive an invoice, with invoice number, for the inks you ordered, including shipping & handling costs

5) Pay the invoice amount to our PayPal account, which will be forwarded to you with the invoice, referencing the Invoice Number in the message title

6) We will do our utmost to ship your ink order on the first Saturday after payment, provided the order has been paid for on the Wednesday prior to the shipment date. We cannot guarantee this, however, as this is a volunteer undertaking, which happens to require a lot of time to do. However, as mentioned, we will do our utmost to get your order out on the Saturday after payment. First shipment is due on December, 8.

7) We will limit the number of shipments to one per week, because of time constraints.

Pricing of these inks is
$19.00 for a 3 oz. (+/- 90 ml) bottle of Galileo Manuscript Brown each, which is a permanent, bulletproof ink, and
$12.50 for a 3 oz. (+/- 90 ml) bottle of Dumas Tulipe Noire.
$19.00 for a 4.5 oz. (+/- 90 ml) bottle of Dumas Tulipe Noire, including 1 free Preppy pen and 1 free waterbrush squeeze pen.
$12.50 for a 3 oz. (+/- 90 ml) bottle of Van Gogh Starry Night Blue.

we onky havel 5 4.5 oz. bottles remaining. If there is enough demand for larger bottles, we will try and reorder 4.5 oz. eyedropper bottles for all colours. Just let us know.
We may also consider creating new inks, provided the sales go well enough :).

Current Stocks (as per December 9, 2012):
3 oz. bottles of FPN Galileo Manuscript Brown : 42 -27
3 oz. bottles of FPN Dumas Tulipe Noire : 46 -15
4.5 oz. bottles of FPN Dumas Tulipe Noire incl. 2 free pens : 5 0
3 oz. bottles of FPN Van Gogh Starry Night Blue : 147 -6

Note: More ink was ordered from Noodler's Inc. today, 2012-12-06. Stock is expected to arrive after Christmas.

Do note that all proceeds from these inks will go to support (hosting) of your favourite fountain pen website, and all work to get these inks to you is done by volunteers!

Anyway, enjoy your inks!

Warm regards,
The FPN Admin Team


P.S.: The person who volunteered for invoicing, handling, shipping and packing (which is quite the job), is someone most of you know already: watch_art, aka Shawn :D. Thanks, Shawn, much appreciated!! Hurray for Shawn!!!

Note: Updated instructions to please include full shipping address in ordering email.

Edited by wimg, 11 December 2012 - 01:11.
Updated the number of bottles still available

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,

I've placed a small order - I think - with a question about the shipping costs to the UK.

Ahhhh! Great news! Well done!

I must have missed the discussion of shipping charges...

How much to USPS one 3 oz bottle to Vancouver Canada? Another option for me.... how much to Point Roberts WA?

Thanks for all you efforts.

Shipping charges haven't been mentioned yet. We're going to give estimates so everybody has a rough idea - and then on an individual basis will weigh each box and give this info - and eventually will have estimates for several options (1 bottle, 2 bottles, so on) going to different countries -- and for the US as well.

Also - there will be no fudging on customs forms. If the cost was $58, then the customs form will say $58.

So don't ask.

I hope this isn't too much of a tangent, but is there any one place where we can see examples of these inks on paper? Swatches, writing examples?

If you look in the index of ink reviews here, the FPN Noodler's inks can be found under 'Noodler's, Exclusive to FPN'. There are several very good reviews for each.

Hope that helps!

I sent my e-mail in!

I'd love to have a 4.5oz bottle of the Galileo Manuscript Brown if there is enough interest to reorder the larger bottles.

I'm interested in the large bottles of Galileo, too.

Thanks for doing this, Shawn! An email has been sent.
