Dear Massdrop When are we going to see more BungBox ink. I am running out of Hatsukoi.! Kind Regards, PC
Super drop, I use three of the colors that are offered by Bungubox, I can’t wait for this drop to become to become active again
I just received my drop yesterday. I got Sapphire and Emerald. They included a little card explaining that these inks were designed after the owner used and fell in love with Parker Penman Sapphire And Emerald. While similar, these inks are different enough to warrant have both if you can. In my opinion there are no substitutes to any of these inks. Although Kobe 37 is close to Sapphire and Kobe 35 is close to Emerald, but they are not close enough.
These two inks do not sheen wildly like like some other Sailor made inks do, but they are vibrant and shade incredibly well. For sheening sailor inks: Vibrant Blue get: Sailor Souten, for a cool dusty-bright Blue with tons of gorgeous sheen get: Maruzen Eternal Blue and a nice dusty sheeninggreen get Sailor Epinard or Tokiwa Matsu.
While led I didn’t get other B.B. inks in this drop I do have most of their other inks and. They are all amazing in their own right, but Sapphire, Emerald, 4B and L’Amant are truly irreplaceable.
KWZ and Akkerman/Diamine also makes decent almost comparable inks and Pilot Iroshizuku make nice inks but none truly comparable to the aforementioned Sailor inks. Organic Studios sheening inks smudge everywhere to the point they are not useable other than for novelty. I own all of these and find my pens still have Sailor made inks 90% of the time. Worth the hype and price? Yes. I’m very glad I was able to get in on this drop.
At this moment there is a drop for a Diamine box set. 10 colors @30 ml, $10 less. Of course they are not so creatively named to the point you woul like to consume them orally.
4B is my favorite blue-black, and Piano Mahogany is my favorite brown. Also, Kaoru is incredibly nice and so creative with ink ideas - they have a cool new set of colors to match all the Tokyo subway lines, I am hoping they will do New York's CTA and San Francisco's MUNI some day. If you are in Tokyo (or Hamamatsu), definitely stop by one of their stores and say hello!

June Bride is not listed as either sold out or available in the choices. That’s the main one I’m interested in.

Hi, Sorry for the confusion. That color is not available on this drop. The image has been removed to avoid further confusion. Thank you for flagging.
Okay, I get that "Bungbox" is super fun to say out loud over and over again, but what exactly makes these inks so expensive?
JMadigan
A few things: 1. Sailor only sells these colors via the Bungubox store, so there is no real competition in sales (unless you want to substitute a similar ink, but that can be hard for some of those shades, since some of the better alternatives are from more harsh inks you wouldn't want to put in some pens), 2. Sailor inks are rising in price pretty fast over the last few years do to increased demand, so the special inks (like Bungubox, Kobe, etc.) are rising in price too, otherwise normal sailor inks would be more per ml, 3. ink collecting seems to really be taking off along with the sustained fountain pen revival, so demand for limited inks is growing really fast.
Why isn’t June bride available?

Are Bungbox inks any different than Sailor Inks?
Load 1 more comment
Thanks. If all that is different is the colors It's too high a price. I got some Sailor Inks on Ebay that were made for a shop in Kobe. The colors are very nice and they are no more expensive than Sailor Inks.

There are some Bungbox colors I really like (Sappire, 4B, and Sea come to mind) but similar can be found elsewhere. What sets these specific Bungbox inks apart is their sheen and good behavior (wet, low feathering, etc). I don't know if these positives are worth the price premium for most people though. I haven't tried any inks from the Kobe line but I hope to get some samples in the future (I'm trying to use more of my existing ink collection before getting more).
:( this deal is just ok.... vanness comes out to $86 which is $4 more expensive but shipping is fast And immediate.

Are you talking about Vanness in Little Rock? I guess I need to stop in there then.
Eq52515
Yep!
Not to complain too much, but there are only 4 committed at this point and 4B is gone. Either this is a reseller stocking up or the coveted colors are in too short a supply.
I missed it :(
Well the good colors are gone already, so much for this drop.
Tube808
Agreed. They must only get a couple bottles of the colors I want, or the first few people that order purchase large quantities leaving none for the rest of us. Ive tried ordering sea and piano mahogony for the past few bungubox drops without success. I'm about to just order elsewhere.
mulrich
Yah, I'm going to try vanesse for them from here on out. I suspect that people buy many and resell on eBay.
Why the ink comes not in Bungbox original bottle? That is a Sailor ink bottle.
Tofig
Not really. My understanding is that there was a problem obtaining the bottles from the manufacturer that is associated with custom made inks for Japanese stores. Since the ink manufacturer is the same one for Sailor, these are the bottles that are available. It is not in the control of the store or ink manufacturer.
Tofig
This has been the Bungubox bottle for a while now, which is unfortunate. These are great inks but the bottle is a huge pain and not usable with large nibs. I end up having to directly fill a converter or use a smaller pen. Unfortunately this means I don't use the ink with lots of my collection.
I just joined the drop. My CC has already been charged. That is ok I guess, but I thought as more people joined the lower the price became. Am I missing something here?

If your credit card company has pended a charge, that means that it hasn't paid Massdrop yet. That's just a way for the seller to put a hold on those funds until they actually charge you. Most commonly done in restaurants. They give you a bill, you give them your credit card. They put through a pending item to the credit card company for the amount of the bill plus an estimated tip of 20%. When you write in the tip, they reverse the pended charge and put in the actual total.

I once joined a drop and they didn't try to run my card until after the drop ended. Unfortunately, between the time I placed the order and when the drop closed my card was stolen and I was issued a new card. MD wasnt able to then run the card so my order was canceled. I'm not sure if this is a new process, or if this would have prevented my order from being canceled, but if so I would say this is an improvement even if it needs better communication.

Ummm ... not the best of deals. I wish colour selection was expanded and better price and shipping costs.
it-man
If you can find a better deal on bungbox ink please share.
tskiller
I decided to purchase sailor inks ... got most colours. i really don't see significat difference in colour, just price between the two.
Quibble over prices as you wish, but SPP is the greatest ink ever. Or if it's not, Sapphire is.
Terrible deal. $81.74 for two bottles and wait months to get them? This is a savings of $2.13 per bottle for CONUS residents. Massdrop your BungBox deals were much better previously. Why the large shipping increase? It was free before.
mandrbeck
Agree get the better colors from vaness pens for same price. massdrop is becoming less and less useful and more of a time waster
The color selection is too limited this is just leftovers
Allenl
Yep; There aren't that many people in the drop but all the colors I'm interested in are gone. Vanness it is.

Re: shipping, I have no issue with DHLs part. The previous transaction transitioned from DHL to USPS smoothly (although it took DHL longer to get the package to USPS than it would have taken for USPS to deliver from NJ). This last shipment however was not a smooth handover. DHL handed over the package to USPS on Saturday but it wasn't until Wednesday that it left the transition point for me to get the package on Thursday. Even taking into account the public holiday on Monday that is a bit sad on USPS' part.
skye
I wouldn't blame USPS so fast. For me, DHL tracking was horrible. For the past two packages, there was essentially no tracking on DHL's side, so I had no idea where the packages were until USPS got them. One of them even still showed departed origin facility when I received it from USPS. The other one just changed to delivered from departed origin facility after delivery.
Any way you could get more of the Tipsy in stock for option 1?
Is this drop more expensive?...Or perhaps I am just losing memory?
dholik8503
From my memory, maybe a couple bucks at most? I think it's around this price, though.
ZALHERA
This is the same price as last time. I checked my transactions and I paid $73.99 last time. I really like this ink, so I'll probably join this drop too (in a few days...won't do it now).

My order shipped 5 days ago ... so to speak. It seems unable to get out of New Jersey. Pretty sorry performance on the part of DHL and/or the USPS.
Addendum: 4 hours after sending the above, USPS tracking says the package is at my post office and to be delivered tomorrow. I'm sure glad .... Nah! That's magical thinking!
dms525
I've seen this before, sometimes things don't get updated very fast on the USPS side of things. DHL/UPS/FedEx is a lot better in some regards.
I recently had something shipped about 2 days ago. For the first day it said it was picked up, but not in transit. Next day, it's at a nearby postoffice and ready to be delivered (with something like 10 updates suddenly showing up). I really don't like it when USPS does this.
Awaiting delivery! While the group's order is on its way to our warehouse in New Jersey now, we've just learned that a minor clearance delay has prevented the shipment from arriving as early as originally anticipated. Rest assured, we've prioritized this shipment with our receiving team and will work to have individual packages turned around as quickly as possible once delivered.
Expect another update from us on 8/25 or sooner if something comes up.
If you have any questions, please visit our Help Center (https://massdrop.com/helpcenter).
The vendor informed us that the second batch of the group's order was picked up and is on its way to our warehouse in New Jersey. Based on the tracking provided, the order is scheduled to arrive on 8/19.
We understand that the additional wait time is undesirable. If you would prefer to cancel your order, please contact Community Support using the “Contact Support” button in your transactions page (http://massdrop.com/transactions).
You can expect an update from us on 8/21 or sooner if something comes up.

So how will the vendor's first shipment be handled? Will it remain at the MD warehouse until the second shipment arrives or will it be allocated to the drop participants as much as possible?
millicent
@millicent : If your order is completed by the first shipment your order will ship. So yes the first batch will be used to allocate as many participants as possible :)
The vendor informed us that the first portion of the group's order has been picked up and is on the way to our warehouse. Based on tracking provided this batch should be arriving late next week. Due to the large nature of the group's order and the preparation necessary to ensure safe transit the vendor split the shipments up and is sending them as soon as they are ready for transit!
The vendor is currently working on preparing the second batch for shipment. Based on current estimates this batch should be shipping by the middle of the coming week. We will make sure to update the group with the shipping schedule as soon as this batch is on its way.
You can expect an update from us on 8/11 or sooner if something comes up.
