Hello everyone! My name is Máté (Hungarian for Matthew) and not long ago (~1 year ago) I started my online fountain pen shop as a hobby/side project next to my day job (I'm a teacher :D). Last week I signed a deal with DHL and I'm finally able to ship things around the world at a reasonable (previously it was 65 euros for any non-EU packages) price instead of limiting it to the EU.

 

To celebrate this new partnership I decided to have a sale. I would immensely appreciate it if you could leave me feedback of any kind (either here in PM, comment or through e-mail) so that I can try to improve things. At the moment I'm mainly interested in what you guys think of prices (for items and shipping), what made you decide to make a purchase or vice versa, what stopped you from making a purchase etc. but as I said all feedback is welcome. Thank you!

My apologies for not being able to filter the products on sale. I'm in talks with a programmer to help me improve the site.

 

Notable things on sale:

Colorverse Nebula Note (Tomoe River), Cross inks, Faber Castell e-motion, M805 Blue Dunes, M815 Metal Striped, Pilot Decimo, Iroshizuku

Hi Máté

 

Good Luck with this venture, I had a quick look and you have some nice things including a Colorverse notebook I haven't seen available from UK stationers and your own inks which are very reasonably priced. I did look into ordering these from you but it was still 18 euros for delivery to UK - much better than the 65 you mention in your post but still a little much for a notepad and some ink. I find DHL expensive but I know you have to have some sort of shipping process that suits your site. All the best.

Hey! Thanks, I really appreciate the feedback especially since it's confirming one of the things I suspected! I'll keep thinking of ways to reduce the shipping price! :D
