Fpn Inks, Continued ....

YEP! Thank you. I have Fibromyalgia and just before it rains, I really hurt. Thankfully, I live in the desert. I'm happy to report, I have all the shipping caught up!

:( Oh man, that sounds awful. I'm glad you live in a place where it's more manageable to deal with.

 

I received your excellently packaged shipment on the 24th all safe and sound. Galileo Manuscript Brown is a beautiful ink, and FPN is blessed to have it as their exclusive. :D Took me a while to post about it because I wanted to test it out on a few different papers before reporting back. So, I've made an imgur album of all the different papers (10 types) it's on, plus an intro where I also ramble about the initial paper I tried and the pen I used.

The tests on the other papers are at the bottom of the album. I didn't want to clog up the thread too much. Thank you again, amberleadavis!

GBD, I'm so glad you are enjoying the ink. I'm really pleased with it too. The VCV is a little more smudgy on the Tomoe River paper, but then it does sheen so that's cool too. We'd love to have your GMB review on the Reviews thread.

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

Sure! I wan't able to find a thread specifically for GMB reviews via a search for "Galileo". Is the thread named something else, or should I just start an individual thread for this mini review?

An individual one is fine, if not better than tagging on to an existing one. Please do use the Upload tab to upload pictures for the review, however. That way they will not get lost anywhere in the digital void outside of FPN ;).

Dear FPN fairies,

 

is there any chance that VCV will come back again some day?

 

I didn't appreciate the ink enough when I first got it, but now I do. This is the nicest red ink I've ever come across and I'd like to use it very often, but don't dare because the bottle will be empty soon if I do.

 

So, are there any plans to have another edition of this gorgeous ink? That'd make me happy.

I endeavour to be frank and truthful in what I write, show or otherwise present, when I relate my first-hand experiences that are not independently verifiable; and link to third-party content where I can, when I make a claim or refute a statement of fact in a thread. If there is something you can verify for yourself, I entreat you to do so, and judge for yourself what is right, correct for valid. I may be wrong, and my position or say-so is no more authoritative and carries no more weight than anyone else's here.

What a pity. Ach. Thank you for letting me know!

We are out of GMB and our current purchasing system isn't working. I'm feeling better now and can probably do some shipping.  I'll try and do an inventory and see what we have, but I know I have the big bottles of VCV.

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

      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
