fwiw Cult Pens has it listed as in stock. Yes, here we go, but not Royal Blue.


CultPens have Royal Blue - at least they did when I looked earlier this morning :-)

Not there now. Unless it is listed for everyone else, and the age-old battle between Devon and Cornwall has reached a new, highly selective, ink-deprivation stage...  :glare:  :D

How weird. When I look in the Ink Colour selection drop-down menu, there is Royal Blue, listed with all the other colours. Perhaps I'm hallucinating...... :-)

Ah I apologise. Grainweevil is right & I'm wrong. The "Email when in stock message" didn't show up on my phone.

Thank you for the great news! Would you know if either of the Midnight Blue or Deep Sea Green are document inks, like some of the other GvFC inks?

Quick swabs of the new blue & green inks. They're lovely - they have a soft, vintage feel & are very elegant.

I wanted to order 4 bottles from Appleboom, but apparently they only offer expedited  FedEx delivery, cost prohibitive................... 25 Euros for shipping 4 bottles.

 

I have sent an email to Graf Von Faber US asking when the new inks will be available at US Retailers..will post when I receive reply.

The Fedex delivery is only 3 euro's more expensive compared to regular post, so we choose to speed up the delivery by around 10 days for the 3 euro extra.

 

Unfortunately shipping to the USA is not so cheap...

Shipping anywhere internationally these days is never cheap. Comparatively, I don't think €25 is too bad actually. To ship 4 bottles of GvFC ink (which are some of the heaviest ink bottles) the other way, from US to Europe, would probably cost more. US postage is ridiculously expensive and is often prohibitive; even the basic USPS 1st class international is pricey.

Isn't Midnight Blue close to Kobe Kano-Cho #51?

Update:

 

Appelboom: I placed an order for 4 bottles of GVFC bottled inks after all. (including the 2 new ones - Deep Sea Green and Midnight Blue)   Joost Appleboom was very helpful and accommodating....and he found a less expensive alternative for shipping the 4 bottles to the USA...I AM VERY PLEASED and hope to purchase from Appelboom again in the  near future.  I am a firm believer in supporting people/businesses who go above and beyond....his communication was also very very prompt.

 

So for anyone in the USA who is interested in the NEW and NOT RELEASED (see below) in the USA bottled inks...I strongly suggest you contact Appelboom in the Netherlands...in fact I would contact Appelboom for any product you are looking to purchase. 

 

I also spoke with GVFC - USA today...the Retail rep had no idea...never heard of the new inks, and said the green I must be referring to is Moss Green...she then transferred me to someone else who never returned the call.

It didn't sound as though the new GVFC inks are being released in the USA anytime soon...really disappointing when a distributor's representative doesn't have a clue about Products.
