Today is 1670 D-day!

If you’ve been waiting for a chance to get the new improved wax capped J. Herbin 1670 ink, J. Herbin 100ml bottles, large black lined Habanas, or large black lined Webbies v3.0, then set aside some time today (7/29/10) to visit GouletPens.com!

At 12pm EST on 7/29/10 we’re going to make these products live and available for purchase. The 1670 inks are expected to disappear fast as we have once again been limited in our stock (as I’m sure all US retailers will be). Because of such limited quantities, there will only be one bottle allowed per person. Here are some tips if you want to have the best chance of getting it:

  • Save regular products in your shopping cart ahead of time. Whatever regularly offered items you’d like to also purchase in conjunction with your special items you should save in your shopping cart ahead of time. This way, as soon as the special items are listed you can add them to your cart and check out as quickly as possible. If you add a 1670 ink first, then dilly-dally around the site for a while before checking out, someone else could check out before you and snatch up the last bottle and you’ll be out of luck. Items in your shopping cart are not reserved for you, it’s all about when you check out. Only a completed order will guarantee your purchase!
  • Make sure you or someone can be ready at 12pm EST. Set aside time a little before 12pm EST to load your items into your cart and check out. You want to make sure you’re ready so your laptop battery isn’t dead, or your power is out, or whatever. If you are somehow unavailable to purchase your order at that time, you may want to consider arranging with someone else to complete your purchase during that time. I expect some things, especially the 1670 ink, to go very fast, and waiting an hour might make you miss out!
  • Be patient with me! I’m a one man show….my wife is wonderful and is able to help when she isn’t working her full-time job and watching our 6-month old son. Most often though, I’m on my own for all of the email correspondence, my handwritten notes, blog, videos, and packing and shipping orders. I pride myself on almost always getting out orders placed within 24 hours, but I’m being realistic about this weekend. I’m fully expecting an influx of orders on Thursday, and I can only ship out so many orders a day. It may take me a few days to get to everyone, but I’m making it my goal to have everything out by Monday.

It’s going to be a very busy time for Rachel and I, but we’ll do our best to keep up! On top of it all, my normal help (my mother!) is unavailable to help this weekend, so it’ll be me, Rachel, and Joseph fending for ourselves!

Best of luck to everyone today, and I’m sorry in advance if you aren’t able to get what you wanted. With such limited stock there are bound to be disappointments, so we’re trying to offer the ink in the fairest way possible for everyone. This is all a bit of an experiment, so we’ll see how it goes!

  • Wow, I love those giant Herbin bottles! 😉

  • They definitely solve the 'shallow bottom' problem of the 30ml bottles!

  • There must be many, many customers lined up outside the virtual door to need such elaborate planning — Goulet Pens must be thriving. Congratulations Brian and family!

  • How long did the 1670 last?

  • Check out tomorrow's post, the speed of the ink sale will be the hot topic!
