I never received the ink either, and I also assumed it was just lost in transit.


Ditto... Someone in India post has a nice pile of Bril ink.

Ah well.

shipping of inks is not allowed... rather no liquid shipping is allowed... until and unless you make use of parcel method which is for big packs...

 

Not allowed to ship liquids out of the country? What's the reasoning behind that law? I'm assuming it's a law.

 

Is it legal to ship, for instance, powdered ink out of India?

I dont think it is a law. Shipping of certain items including liquids are classified as dangerous to handle by shipping companies and postal services.

mehandiratta, please do tell me if you will be giving away or selling Bril RB again. I remember commenting on one of your posts before on Facebook FPN-P long ago if you'd help arrange a shipment to the Philippines.

 

Daytone Blue-Black as well, actually.

Sheesh - I need to pay a little closer attention to what's going on.  I see blue ink giveaway and immediately jump on it.  Only now I see that this post was started in March!  No harm I guess.

Thank you! I checked Amazon.in and the 2x500ml order of Daytone is just Rs.200. If shipping is possible it's certainly a great deal since that is cheaper than the price of a 30ml refill bottle of Diamine locally. Let's make it happen :)

 

It's sad that international shipping from India is US$3 (at least on FPR) and sometimes free (eBay sellers) but only for non-liquids.
