can someone post a picture of what the vials look like?

 

I don't have a picture handy, but I think they're very similar to the "Peti-Vials" seen here:

I just received my first bag of vials from Dillon. Is there any advice regarding fitment of the vials' caps before dropping them in the post? Leave space, fill only part way, squeeze out air, & etc.?

 

Fred

 

I suggest not filling the vial to the brim, as a nib will displace some ink when a person fills their pen. 5 ml is a good amount. Definitely tape the lid. I use both scotch tape with electrical tape over it. Probably only the latter is necessary. I've received samples more than once with most of the ink being out of the vial due to caps that weren't taped.

 

Best, Ann

Hi,

 

To use the vials, you fill the vial with only 5 ML of ink. When you close them, make sure that the lid is flat on the top of the vial, if a side is sticking up or something, the vial will leak. These vials can be used without the tape, in fact, I recommend against using the tape because it may interfere with the threading and the compression seal in the cap.

 

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2043/2446872461_a20acd8da7.jpg

 

The left vial is correctly sealed, the right one is not sealed properly.

 

When sealing the vials fo the first time, screw the cap down, then push down the cap rim edges to seat the cap properly, then screw the cap down completely. Pushing on the cap rim to seat the cap is not always neccessary unless the cap does not seat properly when you screw on the cap the first time. The older vials (The first batch of 1000) that I distributed for 5¢ each did not have as tight a compression seal as all of the other vials I have sold (the other 3000 that I have sold).

 

When shipping samples, I recommend just an ordinary padded envelope. You do not need to wrap the vial in extra padding, the padding in the envelope is sufficient. Just fill the vial to 5 ml, label it, make sure it is sealed properly, toss it into the padded envelope, and post it.

 

Dillon

Stolen: Aurora Optima Demonstrator Red ends Medium nib. Serial number 1216 and Aurora 98 Cartridge/Converter Black bark finish (Archivi Storici) with gold cap. Reward if found. Please contact me if you have seen these pens.

Please send vial orders and other messages to fpninkvials funny-round-mark-thing gmail strange-mark-thing com. My shop is open once again if you need help with your pen.

Will someone with the name of "Jay" who emailed me through the email system provide me an email address? There was no email address provided, so I can't write back.

I've got my vials and I'm ready to go!

 

My first ink purchaces were inspired by the first FP site I read in detail, here. I bought the following, all from Private Reserve:

  • American Blue
  • Velvet Black
  • Blue Suede
  • Midnight Blues
  • Plumb
  • Sherwood Green
  • Dakoda Red

I've also ordered the FPN brown.

 

What do I want? Well, everything. I want to try different brands and colors. I'm not especially interested in blue and black, but in everything else. If you want to try these PR colors, let me know what you want to trade.

Well I have changed many of my inks, traded, used yadda, yadda.... So I figure it was time to update my list.

 

My colors range in the browns, reds, and grays. If you want something I have, just let me know what you have and we can go from there.

I am always looking for a little extra Zhivago, Gailieo Brown, and Gray Flannel of which I have a large sample, but just don't use enough to buy a bottle just yet.

I have

1. 3oz bottle of Noodler's Kiowa Brown - Used only a few times (like 2).

2. 3oz bottle of Noodler's Eel Black - dipped once and hated it.

 

I want to trade for Private Reserve in any brown/orange variety...

 

Note that I wish to trade bottle for bottle... none of this "sample" stuff! :-)

If you want to trade bottles, you can post a thread in the "Wanted To Trade: Pens, inks, etc" forum. This is a thread to trade ink samples.

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.
