cant you guys just buy straight from BB I mean they do ship internationally...

You can but it cost a lot more.  Vanness is the quickest and easiest way to get them at a reasonable price.  I love Sailor inks so much and they have a great selection.

For a REALLY nice color you should see their "FRESH ORANGES OF LAKE HAMANA" but I gotta say I loaded up a new calligraphy 1.4 pen  that arrived this morning & their NOSTALGIA is mighty fine as well!  I haven't met a Bung Box color that I don't like & if you think the Vanness price is expensive compare the offers for the same ink @ Amazon.  The price there is $35.55 with $22.08 shipping.  (With Vanness offering free shipping over $35.00 order I think it is a "steal!"

 

That came in on Saturday.. my friend Kathy ordered 3 BB ins from Vanness (the Oranges was for me.)  PenJockey and I fiddled about with it on Sunday.  I haven't inked it up yet, but I stole PenJockey's Twsbi (m) and filled out a contrast color for a review sheet. He had Sweet Potato in it.

Bung Box inks are available at Vanness?  Who knew?

But YOWZA!  The prices!   :yikes:   I thought Iroshihzuku inks were pricy....

Thanks for the review, though -- that's a nice color.

I'm very pleased with Vanness. I've ordered about 5 bottles from them. They arrive promptly, except one which USPS delayed and not them.

 

The prices are on a par with what I paid for Cigar buying it directly in Japan + shipping to here.  There is also the peace of mind knowing the ink already survived the puddle jump to the States.

 

Also, I have to confess... I love their teeny tiny Rhodias and ink journals :D

Very nice. THank you.


Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).

No it doesn't.   I regularly buy straight from Japan because shipping charges USA/Canada are too ridiculous for words. 

 

My last batch of BungBox cost me $29/bottle Canadian... shipping included.    That's Canadian dollar... equivalent to $24/bottles USD.

 

 

Unless for some unknown reason BungBox shipping charges to US are totally different than Canada..  :P

Any recommendations for a comparable color at a lower pricepoint? Diamine Meadow? Other?
