In short words, I made this! :D

Making is a great hobby for me, and I find a great pleasure when someone enjoys using them :)

Dear KWZI - lovely blue ink.

 

I am going to be in Krakow in September. Is there a store in the city where I can buy this ink? Alternatively, is it on sale in Warsaw? (I have a colleague I can persuade to buy it for me and bring it to our next European meeting.)

Gorgeous ink!

I would love a group buy, but I don't live in the main places that you send to. Perhaps I could organise a group buy for Australia/NZ when we can see more of the inks

The post above should not be regarded as the absolute and undeniable truth and facts as it may contain the garbled mutterings of an overworked, stressed and nonsensical student who may or may not be on the brink of insanity.

That's a nice color, so yeah, I might be interested as well, depending on the price (the question I have would be what the cost of the shipping fees in particular would be, as well as exchange rates).

I emailed KWZI, hoping to get more samples and information of prices. If you have any problems with a large group buy, I can try to help, as I also live in Warsaw.

Okay, I never predicted that there would be such interest in this ink and I'm a bit unprepared  :blush: Before PenShow I made around 280-290 ml of each color, some of the ink was already sold there, and now the rest of it is already reserved. So I'm sorry that everyone else would have to wait a bit for this ink - production takes some time, at average 5-7 weeks I can speed up the process but 3-4 weeks, but this is a minimum to settle down the ink. 

I never made a chart with colors because I constantly add new ones and sometimes change existing ones - creating inks is a hobby for me and earlier sales were made either on pen meetings or after sample exchange. During this Easter I will try to prepare charts with inks - there is around 34 of them. 

Like with all waterproof or water resistant inks proper pen hygiene is a must - do not mix this ink with residues of older ink and everything is going to be alright. I also do not recommend using those inks with celuloid pens - dyes used in those inks have high affinity to cellulose, I never spotted any problems, but there should be no reason to risk. 

I have two types of bottles 60 ml for (5,8€/8$) and 30 ml (3,1€/4,3$) - I ship using standard service by Poczta Polska (quite reliable) inside Europe for shipping it would be around 6$ for up to four 60 ml bottles, to North America it would be up to 8$ for four 60 ml bottles. 

Because of coming Easter I will be absent for few days - I will post more information about inks on Wednesday (23.04). I hope that I gave answers for most of the questions for now. 


I have a lot of tape - and I won't hesitate to use it!

Kwzi, 

 

I will wait. Don't rush. Give us a way to contact you to check on completion dates.

 

Beautiful blue.

Thank you KWZI - you may have the beginnings of a whole new career :)

I will certainly keep an eye out for the availability of Blue #3.

Enjoy your holiday.

I asked him about acquiring the complete collection...I was channeling Saskia Manning.   :)  Maybe I should have started with the blues.

Yummy blue. Hey Amber, please add my name to the list for the Blue #3 30ml. Didn't quite understand the pricing for US. Looking forward to seeing the other colors.
