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.
(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.
