Rats. I really liked that one.

But thanks for the heads up, nonetheless.

ETA: Am I seeing things? Are there actually some *new* colors? Anyone know anything about these and what they're like?

Ditto on the Blue Merle. Have one bottle. OS had a nice touch with 'vintage-looking' inks but this was definitley a fave

While we can lambaste other manufacturers for making LE inks Tyler in one fell swoop has brought the whole company into the LE realm.

Don't worry though. I'm sure they'll appear on EBay $$$$$$ :)

Woot, I ordered Genghis Khan, Khaki, and Blue Crab. That'll get me all the sepias, and all the vintage inks that I know of.And the Genghis Khan is a red with a gold shimmer....!

 

Ruth, of the inks I researched, there were prior references in my web searches. For example, the white box set was available at the DC pen show, only to disappear. Other inks are mentioned on the OS site.

PS104: Oscar's Copper and Blue crab are vintage style inks.

 

Other FYI:

My Jane Austen fell apart after a couple months, so if you get that, you might want to use it fast. Santiago, Charles Darwin, and HMS Beagle are quick dry inks.... choose wisely.

I went and looked at the site to see the inks and saw the giveaway they're having for the Sailor pen. This is a bit of a sidetrack, but does it bug anyone else how so many giveaways now are restricted to only people on the social media sites? Not all of us are, and for good reasons. Yes, I know they're trying to use the contest entrants' social connections to widen their company's exposure, but how does it help them any to alienate the percentage of their clients that are excluded by such a requirement? This has become a very common tactic in the past couple of years. And yes, it affects my opinion of companies that do it.

 

Am I just being a grump or does it bother others?

What do you mean by "fell apart"? Did it separate? Have stuff go out of solution? Something else? I have a sample of it but hadn't gotten around to trying it in the influxes of "ooh shiny" over the past few months, and it just got pushed to the sidelines (although not to the extent of some samples of black inks, or Noodler's Empire Red -- which I've had even longer, I think).

Charles Darwin was one of the most frustrating inks I've ever used -- super black, and super fast drying, but spread and show through like nobody's business. Have not tried the other ones you mentioned.

Oh no! To be honest I love their bottles. I've bought three bottles just after looking at their bottles at the Philadelphia Pen Show.

It does bother me but those are their terms and if you don't like it then express it to them. I can't do anything for you.

 

As you said, it gets their brand better recognized and if you aren't part of it, you aren't part of it. It is neither right or wrong. You might have you're reasons to stay off of social media but there are many positives to is as well.

 

So, if you don't like social media, good for you. If you do like social media, good for you.

 

If Company A wants to expand their recognition, good for them. If Company A doesn't want to expand their recognition, good for them. I think this company wants to expand their recognition so good for them.

please note that I love the organics studio brand. I love the thought he put into every aspect of his inks. emily dickinson is my favorite ink. and who doesnt like cuttlefish?

 

ruth I think it had a chemical breakdown. the ink became very thin and also it stank terribly. I really liked it and was super disappointed when I went to use it again. however, the current ink on sale is likely a different batch so it may turn out differently.

Sailor and Itoya USA are generously donating the pen for the contest. It is as much about exposure for us as it is for them. I'm sorry you feel alienated by the contest (and was certainly not the intent), but there have been and will be contests in the future that utilize different channels. We have given away pens, ink, notebooks, etc., on our live podcast, we have had mail in giveaways for pens as well. There's always a risk someone will not like the requirements, and while we try to minimize that, we thought this particular idea might be fun.

Honestly G+ slipped my mind, since it is not as often used by folks. Absolutely!

What you could do is shoot them an email, tell them you don't participate in social media but would like to be included in the drawing for the pen if possible. Worst they can do is say no. And you might get included without having to sign up social media site x or y to enter.

I've done that before with other companies. Most times the companies I contacted were disinclined to do so. Brian's response is pretty plain that they are going to continue to be selective, so why face it again?

 

Multiple times the news has had stories about companies who have a pricing tier system, charging different prices for different customers, which is always criticized. I'm not certain how this is so different from that, in that some customers are given options that others aren't.

 

As to exposure, it wasn't posted here, nor can I find it on FPGeeks. How is it that social media is so much better for exposure?

 

There just seems to be a fad among companies for doing things like this. It's gotten bad lately. Which is why I asked if it annoyed others too.

well I am reluctant to say 'HAY GUYS I am obviously spamming my friends to get free stuff' so there is a limit to how much a company can get out of such a thing. doesnt bother me that much when companies ask, except when its facebookendofstory only or apple only, then I get offended.

 

ironically, I gotta thank linda for pointing it out for me. maybe they will do something with fountainpennetwork next time :D

Please everyone, back on target.

Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).

Well I'd wanted Nitrogen, and Boron. And the Midnight's Blue looks nice. Then they had 8 oz of Mark Twain. So now I have even more ink for the rest of my life. Thanks for letting us know!

      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

      If one wanted to do this, one could just use the "About Me" field which appears to be unlimited in size.  And if a bunch of people wanted to cooperate, the Member Title field (or signature) could be used to this end - "Ink Giver" (or some such) could be used by those with inks to give...  No software edits required.
    • Arkanabar
      I suppose the update issue could be mitigated.  One would post a link in signature, to the particular part of your profile where you list the inks that you're willing to post samples to others, gratis.  But looking at profiles, I suspect that would require an edit to the board's software, potentially a nontrivial task.
    • A Smug Dill
      I read your idea as getting willing givers to publicly register as members of a set of heterogenous servers, in a system in which a client would explicitly select an available server from a list, to which he/she will then send a request privately and asynchronously. Request handling in the system is unmanaged, and individual requests are handled by the targeted servers completely independently on each other. I think the model is fine, although there are some operational concerns you may want to
    • Daneaxe
      First thought on the method/system of ink sharing: Think the best way, to begin with, is to follow the way of the US thread: offer up a (small) list of inks you are willing to PIF, to whoever expresses interest. Write clearly in the "mission statement" how it works, with a tiny "quid pro quo" that even a struggling student can comply with, i.e. post your opinion and a writing sample, with option of a full review if desired.   So yours truly might say: "I'm offering up samples of D
