Cheap Cartridges From Ebay

Recommended Posts

I just bought this pack of 40 cartridges on ebay, has anyone here tried them? Are they any good? (To be honest I just bought them because I needed empty cartridges :) ). Thanks! This is the link to the ebay listing: http://www.ebay.com/itm/40-Fountain-Pen-Ink-Cartridge-Refills-ORANGE-GIFT-/230384913830?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item35a402cda6

I haven't tried those specifically but they sure are cheap so don't expect miracle, but if you want empty cartridges then why not.

I have used this vender several times. Good products and service. Bought varieties of ink catridges filled, and then refilled a couple. No problems.

You say you need empty cartridges. Are you not going to use the ink inside these?

I buy most of my carts from this vendor. Cheap, reliable and fast shipping. No problems so far.

 

The free gift is usually 12 carts in various colors.

I have bought from them over the years and been satisfied. Mostly I buy burgundy ink from them as that is not a color one often finds in cheap inks.

 

While buying cheap cartridges to get the empties sounds reasonable, I wonder if the cheap cartridges are made of cheap plastic. I have had lots of short international cartridges crack on me when I squeezed them to get ink flowing. That was a very rare event in 50+ years of squeezing Made in USA Sheaffer cartridges. Alas, I did not keep many records of which cartridges cracked.

I bought 25 cartridges, on two occasions. Expectations of the ink were low. I was not disappointed.

The ink is okay. I use the cartridges in several ways. I use them for International Standard pens, and for other pens, puncturing from the flat end.

Most international c/c pens are nails, so you have another option: holding the pen by its grip section over your writing surface, while keeping the heel of your palm on the paper, drop the pen on its point until a tiny dot of ink appears where it lands. This is what I do.

If anyone is still interested, I should be able to ship a good 300 cartridges for around 10$. I'll have to calculate that through, maybe it's a few cents more. If royal blue German drug store cartridges are enough for you, I can hook you up.

At the current exchange rate for the dollar it would barely work, yes. I'd have to figure out how to use PayPal though. It is a very tight calculation, so obviously I'd be happier with a tip on top. Larger amounts of cartridges would also work, but then shipping gets more expensive.700 cartridges would be a little bit cheaper per cartridge if I calculated that right, but not much.

I would have to take a look at how much these cartridges cost in the store now. They're more expensive online.

I can't guarantee anything, but I'm pretty sure that if 10$ is not enough, 15 is.
