We know very well that the arrival of Lamy Al-Star special edition fountain pens is one of the busiest and most exciting days of the year around Goulet HQ. We definitely love to see the excitement that you have for these pens, too. That's why we regret that, due to some weather-related shipping delays that are out of our hands, we don't expect the Lamy Special Edition CopperOrange and Black Al-Star to arrive until Wednesday, March 18. We'll also be receiving the ink and cartridges with that shipment.
We really appreciate your patience. And we have some good news: we ordered a very large shipment of these pens so we will not sell out right away. As luck would have it, because we ordered up so much, our shipment came via freight truck which takes longer to arrive to us than our normal Lamy shipments. Typically they come by standard Fedex truck, but this one will come in a 53' 18-wheeler and we didn't know that until they'd already shipped it. This is the first Lamy freight shipment we've ever received in our 4 years of selling Lamy. That's actually the hold up, our pens have been sitting in Dallas, TX due to icy conditions there. So even though it's 73 degrees where we are in Virginia, the pens are delayed due to crazy weather across the country. We're all slapping our foreheads and shaking our fists in the air, but there's really not anything we can do right now except wait for them to arrive.
If you're reading this wondering what all the fuss is about with this Al-Star, then take a peak at our CopperOrange blog or the video below.
Remember, if you want to know the moment that these pens are available, you can sign up for an email notification for the CopperOrange and Black Al-Star. Thanks again for your understanding.
