    Getting ink in CDN $$$

    Discussion started by religion - Nov 22, 2004

    Hey all,

    I dropped this question in the stores and boutiqes thread about a month ago, with no results. I used to buy all my ink off of bombing science.com, but they have recently stopped selling most of it online. I live in Vancouver and the only places I knew where to buy ink closed, Futuristic Flavor and FWUH. Im looking for Marsh,Garvey and Nero more specifically. Any online stores that sell and ship in Canada are cool. I've ordered this shit from the states, and after shipping and currency conversion, AND taxes on both sides, it seems borderline, not worth it.

    That thread isn't for graf stuff, it is for hipster shops. Try in the Yard.

    I wrote a big reply to this when it was new saying pretty much

    'just order for 4THW and show some support for the people behind the scenes'

    but I saw 4THW was having some downtime so I cancelled the post.

    4THW ran into a few snags while moving physical locations. I believe they'll be up early next week.

    MisterRaven,

    I'm not sure why they closed, but I think it may have had something to do with rent + local police pressure. I know all the American stores (including 4 the hard way) , and I think thats dope, but for the Canadian consumer, good ink has never been harder too come by. I recently e-mailed the head honcho @ bombing science and he says its trouble at the border. Anything with a flammable label gets rejected at the border. Heres the full real e-mail>>

    {my original e-mail}

    Are you guys going to get any more Nero in any time soon? its been a
    while.
    Also, you might be VERY interested in checking out www.grog-ink.com. You

    guys need to get more ink. I just spent $200 @ artprimo.com on a gallon
    of
    Marsh, it would be great if you guys sold Corio, Garvey, and Nero in the
    big
    bottles. Anyways, I'm always looking for GOOD ink (not just H2B or
    Montana
    inks) in Canadian dollars online. I used to only shop with you guys for
    ink!
    Whats going on?

    {the response}


    Hi,

    We had several problems with the customs for importing inks. A lot of
    our stock got seized by Canada Post because there is an inflammable sign
    on the bottles. We are looking for an alternative.
    Peace

    >> So, I don't mind supporting an American store with reasonable prices, but there seems to be a big gap open up here right now for an online store that lets Canadian customers pay in Canadian dollars. Bombing science sold out all the time, and now all they sell is that weak H2B and Montana ink. I would rather have Marsh and Garvey. So it seems the best price is at Art Primo.

    If you guys stock either of those inks at a similar price, I would be more than happy to support this website. There are probably a few other Canadian writers with the same problem as me. I use alot of ink, and for me, bucket and thinner dosen't do it.
