Default EMPEROR Group Buy ** SHIPPED **

Thanks to my free Emperor bushing, I need to get me some Emperor kits!!! :D

Due to requests, I will close this as soon as we hit 100. This is due to possible delay in shipping and Chrismas order deadlines. Hope you understand.

We reached our goal (100+)!!! Discount is 25%!!!

I will email payment instruction and totals to everyone including their order as early as Friday. Please try to send payment ASAP so I can place the order by Monday if possible.

If mailing payment please let me know...I am not sure I can cover this due to the price per kit.

Thanks!
Dario :)





Please post here qty/finish if you are interested...I'll work with Nils with the discount depending on how many will sign up.

If you need bushing/drill bit, etc., post it too and we will see what we can do.

If it goes...
Shipping will be actual and will use USPS flat rate envelope if possible. I do take paypal (but add their charges to your bill ;)). Insurance will be optional.

Thanks!
====================
11/23
We are on and if everyone who posted will commit, we are guaranteed atleast 20% discount. Whether we can reach 25% is still up in the air. I will post prices based on 20% and 25%

GROUP BUY ENDS DEC. 1

Jr Gents are still in consideration. Against my better judgement I actually might do it. Please note what type (original/II), FP/RB, finish, tapered or screwed. If it gets too scary I may back off or do just 2 or so most wanted version of it.

I will make a list here and update it when I find time.

A favor...if you are not sure or changed your mind...please edit your post about what you want before I make the list. Thank you.
=====================
Those who expressed interest on Jr Gent/Jr Statesman...please indicate the following:

Version I or II (default is II)
Endcap Tapered or Threaded (default is tapered)
Finish (TN Gold, Platinum, etc.) (default will be TN Gold)
Rollerball or Fountainpen (default is RB)

Though default is there...substitutions may happen if you don't specify a feature...or it may not be ordered too :D[:p].
=====================
Here's what's available on Jr Gent/Jr. Statesman version 1 (availability subject to change). According to Nils discount is 30%.

10 of the Rhodium/22k Jr. Statesman Fountains
50 of the Rhodium/Black TN Jr. Statesman Rollerballs.
Plenty of the 10K Jr. Gents RB or Fountain with 10 or so smooth end caps and plenty of threaded end caps.
Plenty of the Titanium Jr. Gents RB or Fountain with both end caps.
Plenty of the Platinum Jr. Gents RB or Fountain but only with threaded end caps - no smooth.
=====================
Estimated delivery to me is Dec. 7 if I order Dec. 1
Due to holiday rush...I can't guarantee time of delivery to you...I can only say they will leave my hands in less than 2 days after I recieve them. Hope this is acceptable.
=====================

Jr Gents and Jr Statesman (versions I and II) are officially on. Order away!!!

BTW, spare tubes can also be ordered for Emperor

=====================

I'm increasing my interest by one RB to:

2 x 22K FPs
1 x 22K RB
1 x set of bushings

Also, a question: does CSUSA give you a mix and match discount? I.e. do you get 50-unit pricing only if you order 50 of one kind or can you mix 22K with black Ti and RB with FP to qualify?

I may be interested in a 22K FP. But would be more interested in the Jr. gent and Jr. Statesman Version 1. They still have a good bit left and I bet they would be willing to give another great discount. Of course this is after I just bought 10 of them yesterday.

Quick question before a committment...

What is the usual discount for these pens? I may be in for a few plus the large DB and bushings, but only if the discount makes it worth the severe beating I will be taking from the wife.

BTW, what does a pen sell for that costs you $50-$60 plus time to make? ($150 or so?)

Mikey, I can't answer for anyone else, but I have a formula entered in a speardsheet that I use to help me figure my prices. According to my spreadsheet, these should go for $175 to $200. I guess we'll see.

Stan,

I cannot commit on a discount. It will depend on how much we will order...last time they got 25% (I think)...but again I cannot guarantee that until I talk to Nils.

I would be interested in one 22k gold FP with drill bits and bushing.
Edit:
I will take two (2) 22kt gold FP Emperor and two (2) black titanium FP Emperor. Also one set of bushings and a set of drill bits.

Thanks for your work Dario, let me know the final price with shipping and how you want the payment sent.
