Ruth.

Where in North America have you found Quink Permanent Blue?... And do you mean bottles? or just carts?...

I despise washable blue.

BB is growing on me, but it's not BB, it's just "darker blue" and black, well,... it's black, meh.

 

But I've been wanting to try permanent quink blue... but all I've seen is vintage stuff. Is there a place we North American's can actually get current production permanent blue?

Not as far as I've been able to determine. :(  The last time I found either bottles or cartridges of (modern) Quink Permanent Blue was probably close to a decade ago at this point.  

I saw a bottle of Permanent Blue for sale on eBay a few years ago from a seller in the UK -- but apparently there was some law that prohibited either it to be shipped to the US or shipped out of the UK (forget which now).

@alexwi  It's called a magnifier reticle.  It fits in the bottom of a magnifier.  They come in a variety of patterns.  Mine is a holdover from my working days.

Thanks!

      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

      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.
