I just thought I'd follow up on my order from Fountainfeder of two 80ml bottles of ink. One each, Skull and Roses, and November rain. Since these are both a bit hard to get, and hard to find (not at all in the US, as far as I know, and tried), I thought I'd briefly detail my experience:
Ordered: October 19th
9,20 Euro each
2,94 Euro tax (I'm assuming VAT)
4 Euro shipping. From Germany, to Portland, Oregon, USA. I didn't pay for tracking(a couple of Euro more), but maybe should have. I sort of forgot to add it at checkout, which is an option.
Shipped:October 20th, Standard Post, I believe. Can't remember if you can pay for faster post. Packed well, in bubble wrap and packing peanuts. Package did not go through a customs check, which always seems to add a week travel time.
German hazelnut chocolate treat included at no additional charge.
Arrived today at my PO box, in Oregon. To me, acceptable travel time, considering how hard it seems to get this ink, at least right now. Both of these are German-market exclusives.
Overall, a great transaction. Steffi was great with communication on Facebook, especially as I impatiently awaited the ink to arrive in Germany from the UK. She posted on her website, and on Facebook, when the ink had finally arrived and was available to buy.
FYI, as of this moment, both inks are available to buy. https://www.fountainfeder.eu/
For a first time buying experience, it was great. No a single negative thing, except me impatiently waiting for the ink to arrive!!
Hope this helps.
