I too got my shipping confirmation today, so expect the package to reach my remailer soon - of course then they still have to ship the goodies to me... but I'm not in a great big hurry - just got a package of seven new to me inks from India...

I remember that pen - when I first discovered XFP I bought, among other things, a set of them, in five colors. Some I still have, others made friends and family presents. Nice enough pens.

I ordered my ink about 2 weeks ago and was starting to get a little irked about how long it was taking so I checked back onto this thread and saw that they were back-logged. I tried to be patient so as not to inundate them with questions since it had been posted here. Low and behold a few days later I had a shipping confirmation, and then today, two days later, I had the package in my mailbox! I went a little crazy with the ink stock-up and my 6 100 ml bottles all arrived with no issue. They also sent a letter and bling pen as apology which definitely made up for any minor delay. I'm glad their delay was because they had too much business. 

 

I always appreciate when a company adds something, or even just acknowledges any delay, so thank you xfountain pens I'll definitely be back in a decade when I run out of all that ink I bought!

Got my package yesterday --all three 100ml bottles arrived safe and sound, and I got the "bling pen" and an apology as well. Great service for good products, and I will gladly buy from them again.

Didn't get a chance to do anything other than open the box yesterday, so now I'm actually up 30 minutes early this morning so I can ink up some pens with my purchases!

Got my order yesterday as well--the free pen is a nice gesture, as is the letter explaining the fulfillment delay.  I immediately inked the pen up with Night Sapphire (= Diamine blue-black?) and it's a very nice ink.  I plan to fill another pen with it this evening.  The nalgene bottles that they now use are handy for travel and an improvement over the squat, round glass jars they had when they first started selling Chesterfield ink. 

 

Interesting approach this company has taken in arranging to market Diamine and De Atramentis ink under their own brands (Chesterfield and Architekt respectively).

It was a 3-day sale that ended on May 29th.   :(

 

Sign up for their e-mailing list to get their e-mail notifications.  They don't send out many e-mails - just a couple each year for their sales.

 

Also, their sale prices are usually automatically applied or the e-mail would provide codes - moreso the former than the latter.

Yes, the sale being over is very sad, hopefully another event is not too far off like their letter hinted?
