Official Edison Group Buy - Progress Thread



Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone.

 

All should be covered in the video below.....

 

 

Highlights...

 

The final tally is 119 pens. 79 Beige Black Ebonite and 40 Cobalt Fleck Acrylic (give or take a few, we're still doing the final tally with a fine tooth comb).

 

Materials will be ordered today. Cobalt will probably be here first. If everything goes as planned, we will start on the Cobalt pens next week. Beige/Black ebonite comes from Germany, so sometimes this takes a couple of weeks or more to get to us, hopefully with no customs delays.

 

We will be posting video and photo updates here within this thread, so there will be no surprises as to when your pens will be ready to ship. Please give us a couple months, but if you are ever wondering what the timeline is like, just come to this thread. We will document the entire process.

 

So again, here's the Artist's Proofs....

So give us some time....you'll get to watch 119 of these pens being born right here!

The response has been great, thanks to everyone here on FPN for participating :) We're going to do our best to keep everyone updated too, and trust that we'll begin shipping pens as soon as they're good to go. We'll be keeping an eye on this thread for any questions, and you can always email me or Rachel for updates.

Thanks to all again. This is super exciting, and I am really glad the numbers worked out for both the ebonite and the acrylic. To Mr. Gray specifically, take your time. It'll be hard to be patient, but I think we can muster it (maybe?). Also, I do hope this stirs up a good amount of custom work for you.

 

Now to sit back and watch!

lovely! great!

I think this number is a perfect sign of how well regarded your work is. Congratulations!

 

On a sidenote: So German ebonite will be shipped overseas and then returned back here to me. Let's see if I can hassle with the duty - because it's just a reimport after some minor (errr, well) adjustment :roflmho:

Greetings,

Michael

So it's an exported import, or an import of an import, or something, eh?

The final tally is 119 pens. 79 Beige Black Ebonite and 40 Cobalt Fleck Acrylic (give or take a few, we're still doing the final tally with a fine tooth comb).

 

So ... it's not final then. Just mostly final. Got it. :P :D

 

Looking forward to the progress pics and vids.

Wow, that cobalt is really gorgeous laying there "in the rough"! Cannot wait to see that ebonite in a stack like that.

These are definitely going to be some cherished pens! :cloud9:

I am so tempted to use paint to draw a circle around a part of that acrylic and type MINE MINE MINE MINE with an arrow pointing to it.

Makes me want a blue stick.

 

+1 on that!

I knew I would wish I had taken the plunge for both when I saw the cobalt! I really dont want every pen I see, just the pretty ones!

      Not sure if this has been suggested already but would a setting for localized regions or chapters in FPN be helpful? I don't know if there is a way to find local FPN members who would be nearby. I don't know if we want to be discoverable but a setting to know how many members are in 25, 50, or a 100 miles of each other might be helpful. We can create a regions specific network like Craigslist where people could use that to connect with nearby members, conduct in person sales, arrange FPN meetups

      Hi again all, I forgot to tell y'all that I made the post about Sweden ink PIF. Most have probably found it long ago, but here's a link, anyway:

      I read your blog post and all the replies with much interest. I'm a FP user in Australia. Been part of this forum for years but rarely post. I did come across your ink sharing thread and considered participation. For me it's not lack of interest but lack of time to play around with FP and inks. I'd feel bad to put my hand up for the box and just have it sit until gosh knows when...   I also think that the FP community in Australia is smaller, and I wonder how many in the community are

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav
