Massdrop is great. I bought from them in the past - and funnily enough so many of their categories or interesting to me.
That said, I'd like to see even more fountain pens and leather stationery on Massdrop.

natsora said...

I love the deals that Massdrop gives us. I would love to see more pens available for us. And of course more giveaways!

brandon said...

I've ordered a number of items on Massdrop (including the recent m800/m805 drop). I've been glad to see the success of their fountain pen drops in hopes that it will encourage even more distributors to get on board. I think they've said they're trying to work it, but I would love to see an m1000 drop. I've been holding off on a purchase in hopes that they'll be able to offer a discount similar to what they've had on their other Pelikan drops.

Nicholas Dolce said...

I'm happy with where massdrop is at the moment and have been really pleased to see the explosion of pen-related things. I've enjoyed the articles that have been penned for the site and would enjoy more of them. Excellent idea.

Katie Peterson said...

What would you like to see on Massdrop?
- A little more variety would be good I suppose, I'm usually always able to find something interesting with them, so I guess just more of the same. :)
Are there any changes in particular you would like to see?

-Faster shipping times lol, that may just be wishful thinking though!

F. Aydemir said...

What would you like to see on Massdrop?

More variety, maybe more sports equipments, different brands for pens

Paula Hedlund said...

I have gotten several fountain pens and ink sets on Massdrop, so I love it. I would love to see more limited edition sets of pens and/or inks or colors that are exclusive to Massdrop.

Michael Kakish said...

What would you like to see on Massdrop?

- I would like to see a different process from start to finish. You have to wait for a poll to get enough votes, then wait for the drop to be arranged, then wait for the drop's on-sale period to end, and then wait for the drop to ship from the manufacturer to Massdrop and from Massdrop to you.

Chia-en Chang said...

I'm loving what I see on Massdrop at the moment, and I've taken advantage of some of their deals already. In terms of what I'd like to see...? Nothing in particular - it's built by the community of buyers based on interest and it's always fun and exciting to see what people are interested in spending their money on!

Widad Kaoud said...

I would love to see more variety on the items offered for drops.

Jackie Parkins said...

More variety would be great. Faster shipping would be wonderful, but probably unlikely.

Michelle T said...

I love Massdrop. Couldn't hurt to see more pens and ink though.

Songo said...

I think massdrop is great, maybe more variety on the brands.
thanks

Inkthebeginning said...

I would love to see more. More pens, more inks, and more paper products.

srokshin said...

Massdrop had some deals which finally made me get pens I'd been wanting - Falcon SEF, the Lamy 2000... More ink options (why insist on pushing the black edelstein with the drop, for instance?), and more pen options (the red resin falcon?) would be lovely.

Elizabeth Porter said...

Sketchbooks. And pens. :) (Always more of those... )

Sara Hassinger said...

I would like to see more paper options for one- Different brands and size combinations. I would also love to see more ink bundles with different brands- especially the 'pick your color' ones. Thank you for the giveaway!

Cope said...

I'm a member of Massdrop and with the exception of an ongoing, particularly-excruciating mechanical keyboard issue, I really like them!
I would like to see more fountain pens there, particularly in the $30 - $50 range as I'm still in the early stages of the addictio-- I mean hobby.
I'm not actually all that interested in more articles, as I already go to other places (like Gourmet Pens!) for my fill.

William Eagleburger said...

I would like to see more paper options. Particularly Tomoe River paper. Very few retailers sell this and hopefully if more would carry it, the price would come down. I have a small amount of this paper, but very reluctant to use it.

Brian Hoch said...

I'd like to see more journal and paper options. In my opinion you can never have enough different brands, types and sizes of paper.

millicent said...

I agree with the diversity of offerings comments. Even though I'm not in the market for the electronics and other categories, I do peruse them just to see what's going on. So I see that different drops are just reconfigurations of previous drops. In one sense, it is useful because it allows more folks to get exactly what they want. But in another, it limits who would be interested in MD. New members are needed to keep the project alive, since the veterans can only do so much (they will run out of money or have everything already).

J. F. Lewis said...

More fountain pens! :)

Miguel Oxamendi said...

Thanks for the contest. I would like to see a greater variety of offerings. I think a Massdrop phone app might be helpful.

Ben A said...

I've participated in a number of drops, but the types of things that get dropped have seemed repetitive lately. As much as it is nice to have a way to get mid-priced pens at a group buy rate, it'd be nice to see more variety in the products selected rather than just more Pilot Metro 2-packs.

Mike said...

As a participant in several drops, I'd like to see less limited availability within each drop. That is to say that too often, certain color/nib options are of such limited availability, they sell out instantly.

Josiah said...

I joined Massdrop recently. It has been fun looking at the different items. I enjoy the hobby section as well as the writing. I agree with other posters regarding the limited nature of some drops. It makes it more of a challenge when the options you are interested are instantly gone.

Carolyn said...

I think there is already a pretty good selection on Massdrop. Perhaps more paper?

The time variation in shipping items can be annoying, but I understand it as part of he process. The only way to change it would be for Massdrop to purchase up front, but that's not going to work (for so many reasons).

Davidson said...

Regarding what I'd like to see more of on Massdrop: more articles discussing the finer points of pens and watches, and while we're on the subject, more drops with watches would be nice!

Karen Y. said...

I already bought a Tactile Turn, and am pretty happy with that. I certainly hope to see more pens! I would really like to have a lightweight Maxmadco Bolt Action pen as my everyday writer, and will definitely snatch it on Massdrop if offered.

John Cook said...

Would be nice to see some higher end pens, too. Perhaps Omas or the like. Where a group buy could really influence pricing. It's an interesting site and I've turn quite a few folks on to it. Very addicting.

Yagan Kiely said...

Possible more organisation stationary. Haven't seen all that much. Honestly, I can barely think of anything. :/

Tim G said...

Would like to see more ink options from more manufacturers.

Matt Armstrong said...

I've been rather impressed over the last little while at the selection of pens. I would like to see more of the higher-end pen as well, from a wider variety of manufacturers. And if they can do a 5-pack drop of inks from De Atramentis, Akkerman, or Diamine, I'm SO in.

Ben Stambler said...

- I would like to see more inks in drops and would like to see more items dropping from the EU so there are no customs problems if you're outside the US.

Josephine Robertson said...

Already a member over there. But I'd like to see more fountain pens (duh), stationary, and more organizational tools.

Attila said...

I'm signed up, and always keep an eye on the drops, but I'm yet to actually buy something.
I'd love to see pen trays!

molossus said...

I am already a member of Massdrop. I'd like to see more single sheet papers--blocks of watercolor paper, etc.

Rust said...

Already a massdrop subscriber and enjoy the variety of products presented.

Marsie McLendon said...

I, too, think that Massdrop could do a better/different way of organizing their "drops"--as it is, there really is no way to know when or whether any given item is going to be "re-dropped" (or even "dropped" in the first place). That said, I would like to see the Levenger Signature Stub Nib fountain pen as well as the Pilot Vanishing Point and the Platinum 3776 fountain pens "re-dropped".

Melissa Leilani Larson said...

Most recently I purchased a Platinum 3776 Century through Massdrop, and it was a pretty good deal on a really nice pen. I've been intrigued by the multi-packs of ink, and would love to see a drop involving Diamine or D'Atramentis inks. Oh! Maybe one of the Diamine box sets? The anniversary set or the composers, for example.

Brent Acuff said...

Already a Massdrop user.

Not sure if this is a feature already, but I haven't spent a lot of time looking around. Is there a way to get notifications for a drop you are watching? Along the lines of Kickstarter where I get an email that the project is near its end, I'd like to get notified when a drop is closing up.

Susan J said...

You introduced me to Massdrop, Azizah, and I love it! My dream would be to be able to purchase a Sailor 1911 Black Luster fountain pen or a Wahl Eversharp Technik Black Aluminum fountain pen through Massdrop. Many thanks for your excellent blog!

Dale Thele said...

I signed up about a month ago, but haven't taken the time to see what Massdrop is all about.

Eric Aycock said...

I like the layout and how the site works, I think there is a pretty good variety of pens that show up, but I have only seen 2 drops with inks in the past month or so. So if more ink and accessories could be added that would be great. Giveaways are always nice as well :)

Andrea Kirkby said...

I'd just like to see an EU Massdrop or really clear labelling for EU deals. With US sourced items, by the time I've paid Customs duty and admin, I've lost the saving I made on Massdrop ... which seems silly if I'm buying a European pen like a Pelikan or a Lamy.

Abe said...

I haven't yet used Massdrop enough to suggest improvements, I'm just enjoying browsing for my first drop.

Kyle S said...

I started using Massdrop a little over a month ago, and I absolutely love the idea. The only thing I could see being improved is timing on orders. Being one of the first ten people to join or commit to a drop, you still have seven days for the votes to end, then the weeks to wait for the order to come in. If they could provide a rewards program for being part of the first 3, 5, 10, X people to join they could ship you an item from the previous drop, meaning hardcore Massdroppers could get their items sooner. You could also potentially see a rush for signing up in the beginning, instead of a trickle in over time, which could make orders more consistent in size.
Even if they keep doing what they are doing, Massdrop is going to be successful for years to come.

carlos2948 said...

I am seeing all the things that I want it is just timing and money. The process appears to be okay I just have not been able to buy yet. Thanks for the giveaway Azizah and Massdrop, very generous.

Zach24LA said...

I would like to see more mid-price-point pens!!! more pens!!

How about more by TWSBI, or Kaweco.

I am happy with the site otherwise. The waiting for the item part is hard, but i understand the mass-bundling process requires it.

Paloma said...

I haven't used Massdrop yet, but I would like to be able to see the price of items that have already ended their drops.

Lenaldo Rocha said...

I wish that writing stuff drops included shipping to Brazil. It's frustating to see nice offers and can't participate.

Carl said...

I would like to see more mid-price-point Fountain pens

Tim Draude said...

How about a more photography / video products

Tommy Tracy II said...

What would you like to see on Massdrop?

- I would like to see them re-run several fountain-pen related drops including the Steel Lamy 2000. They require 200 users to request a re-run, but that's a fairly high number. Maybe bring that down to 100.
- I would like them to bulk purchase Akkerman ink and have a drop for that.
- I would like to see a 5-bottle Diamine ink drop.

debraji said...

I signed up for Massdrop but haven't pulled the trigger on a drop yet.

Mahesh said...

I would like to see some Iroshizuku inks. In general it would be nice if the prices (including shipping) were less than Amazon.

Neil said...

I would like to see Pilot Vanishing Point pens and nib units, and Maruman Mnemosyne Notebooks.

Rob Johnston said...

What would you like to see on Massdrop?



Midori Traveller's Notebook or A5 fauxdori.

Gary Schafer said...

I would love to see more writing instruments, ink bundles, knives, leather gear, notebooks

Arthur Yae said...

I'd love to see some Caran d'Ache pens on Massdrop. It could also use more ink and leather goods.

Tuhin Baucus said...

What would you like to see on Massdrop?


I would especially like to see drops for Akkerman and Iroshizuku inks and an even greater availability of Pelikans (M405, M805, M2XX, etc.).

Aimee said...

I'd love to see some more Japanese pens that are only available in Japan! Sailors, Kawecos, etc.

Ken said...

What would you like to see on Massdrop? Perhaps more articles? Different items? Are there any changes in particular you would like to see?



I would love to see more shoe brands! I love Chevalier but I can't have every shoe from them. I would also love more made to order brand like Chevalier!

Margana said...

Midori bundles and some of the pens offered by YAFA Pen Co. Combination offerings of premium inks like Iroshizuku would always be of interest.

sharon888 said...

I'd like to see another Iroshizuku drop and one for Tomoe River paper.

Ellen said...

I am on Massdrop as ellenk. I would like to see more ink drops.

Julia van der Wyk said...

I am on Massdrop as squirl.

I don't have specific requests for another drop, they are doing just fine. :)

David Edwards said...

I'm already on Massdrop.

I would like to see more variety. They seem to cycle through the same products pretty frequently.

RisingBlaze said...

I'm already on Massdrop.

Honestly would love to see a wider variety of brands. Tends to be that the same brands [see Lamy] cycle through over and over again. Would love to see some brands like Kaweco or TWSBI or even just more Pilot products up on there.
Some more ink drops would be nice too.

Daniel said...

I would like to see Massdrop do a special edition pen with the Edison Pen Company!

Vincent said...

I'd like to see more articles on massdrop! I feel like the ones they've put up are pretty great intros to hobbies.

rdcalhoon said...

I am already on Massdrop.
I'd like to see some other notebooks, such as Apica.
And thanks for a chance at a great giveaway!

Adam Wolf said...

I would like to see cameras, lighting and pilot gentle inks.

John Meldorf said...

I enjoy Massdrop, but I'd like to see more and different groups of paper: say, 4 or 5 A6 journals from Apica, Life, Tsubambe, etc grouped together and sold as a bundled item.

Kak_arctic said...

I would like to see more varieties of items on Massdrop. I like the writing session on Massdrop and the EDC part also, I hope there would be more categories on Massdrop.


I know what drop Massdrop can offer depends on whether there's a way to get the retailers to cooperate, still I want to see more new items.


Also, it would be brilliant if there could be few links to articles/reviews about the item in the description of each drop.

Brandon Newell said...

Would live to see Ackerman inks and more pen storage options! Love the blog and massdrop!

Just Luck said...

I'd like to see more information on the products involved. A lot of the hobbies represented have active forums (writing, audiophile, etc) that I've gone to for years. When I first saw the site I said "Wow, Group Buy: The website." I got my Yamakasi monitor through one, keyboards, inks etc. I have no idea how you'd integrate some of the wealth of independent review and discussion that already exists or cultivate a new community, but it feels like an element of the site that is missing and attainable.

products: noble audio, more custom/feedback-driven-revisions a la massdrop edition 701's (community driven again), stuff that emphasizes smaller firm products (big companies can offer deep cuts due to brand inflation and mass-production savings, but custom house productions can offer another kind of value. You need a community to show the value beyond the __% off tag to the uninitiated). Maybe Noble Audio, Franklin-Christoph, or Edison don't have the markup to provide an eye catching price gouging or the brand power to draw substantial momentum without community encouragement. Limited runs are always nice and rewarding for an active community without requiring material loss for small businesses.



...i guess i still just want to see Group Buy: The Website

Austin Malone said...

I would like to see more articles, as well as some product videos of products rerun often or maybe links to some good quality reviews.

Gordon said...

I've just participated in a 'drop' for a Karas Kustoms Ink, and am really looking forward to seeing it arrive! I'd love to see Massdrop selling more midrange ($30-70) fountain pens, and I'd REALLY love to see them co-operating with TWSBI - not sure that's going to happen, though! Or how about something from the Edison Pen Company - that'd be spectacular!


I really appreacite the service Massdrop provide - especially as an international customer. Just a shame that some of their products are only available to the domestic (US) market...

Steve Froland said...

Love Massdrop as it is so far.
Would like to see better placement of items within categories. Possibly add an Outdoors category for some things I wouldn't consider as Everyday Carry.

Sandy H said...

I love their articles and explanations about the details of things and would like more of that.

Corey F. said...

What would you like to see on Massdrop?


- More stub and italic nib fountain pens
- More pen/paper/ink combo packages
- Keyport Slide 2.0

Joseph Reuben said...

I hope they can work with Pilot, a VP drop would be great again...

Kevin S. said...

Already a member. Would love to see more leather goods, something like Mitchell leather wallets or Journal covers.

adameastman1 said...

I would like to see a Lamy 2000 as well : )

Inner Prop said...

I just joined MassDrop. I'm hoping for Karas Kustoms Ink and Retro 51 FP.

I've never bought anything with a group before.

I don't really understand how the give away works and I love the Pelikan. Is there something I have to do on MassDrop to be entered?

reedrelay said...

Perhaps a bit more in the way of easier reruns, and some of the harder to find commercially inks, like Akkerman or Bung Box. Thanks for the giveaway!

Andy said...

I'd like TWSBI to discount... but that's not happening.

Stuart Martin said...

I think more selection would be nice. Lately I see the same drops over and over again. It is fine, because people still want those items but it gets old for someone who doesn't like it or already owns one.

Epichartou said...

Pens with nibs worked on by Nibmeisters and TWSBI pens!

Ian Hedley said...

What I'd really love, which might not be quite what you meant, is for an EU or UK version of Massdrop. Some of the prices are fantastic but by the time shipping and customs fees are added on (no fault of Massdrop, obviously) it pretty much cancels out any savings. Having said that, the last thing I need is another way of spending my money...

Steven said...

Twsbi products for sure! Several models with nice drops!

Michael-Bernhard Zita said...

I joined some Leverage Drops because the low shipping costs to Europe are great. I would love to see some Midori Drops and perhaps one day there is a warehouse in Europe and the "big" things have then great shippingcosts too...

P.Panagiotidis said...

More inks

sph33r said...

It seems like the same pens, ink, paper come up too often. I'd like to see some more variety.

folavril said...

I'd like italic nibs and italic pens.

Lisa Smith said...

What would you like to see on Massdrop? For pens, more nib options than the standard F-M. Thanks for the opportunity!!

Lisa Smith said...

What would you like to see on Massdrop? More options. I understand that's part of the deal, but more colors and more nib options besides F-M.

grum said...

The Pilot Vanishing Point

RobH said...

I'd like to see more posts and blogs on why/how different items are chosen, how they work into every day carry, and more information about what items might work well when purchased together.

diane M. said...

Well, pens of course, especially Pelikans. Unique journals/notebooks. And ink!

Mike Brown said...

Lower threshold for voting. Tons of people never look at the polls and several products would be high revenue enough to justify even a couple dozen purchases.
I'd personally like to see more all-in-one packages: Cross brand packages (instead of 5 Edelsteins, 3 J Herbins, etc. Do 1 J. Herbin, 1 Edelstein, and 1 Iroshizuku in a drop. Also, I've missed drops for products I wanted and that I voted on... Have better product notification, even vote/poll notifications. Maintain a list of products/manufacturers that will NOT participate so people quit asking for the products.
I would LOVE to see a fountain pen drop for something like a Falcon or 2000 where there is a pen tuning included (entire drop is passed through the shop of one of the noted tuners for various customizations). I mean a "Binderized" drop would be pretty huge!

Mehdi van den Bos said...

I would like to see three things on Massdrop - more Omas fountain pens, more tomoe river paper options, and more substantial Iroshizuku or Edelstein ink discounts

The Idle Expatter (Steve B) said...

More drops of items that aren't easily accessible at competitive prices through existing retail channels in-country. If I can already buy a product from the Goulets, I'm less likely to be interested in the added hassle of getting it from Massdrop, unless the discount is astonishing (which it generally hasn't been so far). But if they arranged, say, some BungBox, I'd be more interested.

Katy Rotman said...

I'd love to see more budget priced offers

Gary Linn said...

Would love to see Bung Box or Akkerman ink on Massdrop

Jay Karlson said...

The Pilot Custom 823. Oh, wait. It's already there and stalling in the 120's! Help!!

https://www.massdrop.com/vote/pilot-custom-823

I'd also like to see Whitelines come back. It's reversed graph paper with gray squares and white lines. That way the lines 'disappear' from what you're writing on.

http://whitelines.se/function/

Alex said...

What I would like are

- lower voting threshold
- a more regional focus for drops because sure it is more affordable, but by the time it gets here the Bureau of Customs would charge it way more expensive than it is.
- journals with quality papers from independent makers.

wijko said...

I would like to see Artus pens on Massdrop

Hallzzy said...

I would like to see Massdrop more accommodating to Canadians. Maybe cheaper shipping or a few drops in Canadian dollars would be nice since shipping and the exchange rate eats at the savings.

marybeth said...

I just registered but I would like to see more variety. There is a range from affordable to luxury but more items to select from would be great!

Apollymuffin said...

Akkerman Ink: Because it needs to be more widely available with how awesome it is ⊂༼ ◕_◕✿ ༽つ

ekatsanos said...

Pilot Namiki Custom Heritage 912 PO. After your review and my new Pilot Namiki Grance this is a next on the list

Thayer said...

I would like to see more "high end"offerings from Pelikan, Pilot, Omas, and Edison.

squishymochii said...

I would love to see them team up with some of the Japanese pen stores that have exclusive inks such as Kingdom Note and Sailor Kobe. I would also love to see Akkerman ink on the site.

Kaitlyn Willy said...

I second the Vanishing Point! Also, I would love to see maybe a set of diverse inks.

Ocie said...

How about the new Lamy Al-Star in Copper Orange? A massdrop on items in that price range will get more people interested, especially with fountain pens. If you are going to sell them a Lamy 2000, they will need to buy a Safari or an Al-Star for starters.

joepreiser said...

I missed out on the Pelican M800 offering so would like to see that one return. The Vanishing Point would also be a nice drop.

Vanny said...

I would like to see more middlepriced Fountain-pen and more japanese ones like the Kakuno or the Platinum 3776.
I also like to see more food stuff

Gentleman Stationer said...

I'd like to see more "Japan-only" fountain pens and ink, like Sailor Bung Box and Kobe Inks. Even if the price per item stayed about the same, it's the shipping that kills you and a group buys are the only way to avoid that.

Kasey Kagawa said...

What would you like to see on Massdrop?



I'd like to see more items that are unavailable or very hard to get in the US. Japanese inks and pens, Euro-only versions of pens, and more affordable leather/EDC items.

Jeanne said...

I am interested in all things fountain pen related. Pens, ink, paper, notebooks, accessories.

Patrick T said...

What would I like to change. I'd like more money to spend there! In all seriousness though, I think that the process from which the "drop" goes and when products arrive in consumers' hands could be smoothed out a bit. Some drops have been fantastic and very smooth. In one drop, the vendor only sent half of the order to Massdrop. Those went out to some people, while the rest of use waited. And, waited. And, waited some more. One other thing is how the discussion works for something that had dropped before. It seems a little weird at first to go to a discussion for a drop that has just gone up, only to see pages and pages of previous discussions. Overall, have been happy with the site.

ElaineB said...

Hi, I am already Massdrop. I would love to see higher end Japanese notebooks like Apica, Life, Tsubame and more Japanese fountain pens below $100.

dan said...

Already a member there, hope this post gets me into the drawing.
I'd like to see more middle tier pens. Something like a Platinum 3776, Sailor 1911, Namiki Falcon or Franklin Christoph Model 19 would be awesome. Actually a drop for one of those a month would be perfect!

Jessica W said...

More fountain-pen friendly paper drops! (Like Tomoe River please!)

Rachel S said...

More fountain pen, ink, and paper offerings in the under-$30 range. More office supply type things in general.


And craft/hobby stuff that isn't restricted to card games or quilting. Paint, sketch supplies...pencil sampler packs...there's only one website that I know of, pencils.com I think? that gives you the opportunity to try different palomino pencils without getting boxes of them. Why? I never want to buy a dozen of something I haven't tried once.

Bryan Button said...

It would be really interesting if they started offering EDC bundles, and more things focused on EDC. Their latest blog post kind of touches on this so maybe that what they are going to start doing more of, which would be great!

Charles Beckwith said...

I'm already a member of Massdrop and love the site. I would like to see more refill drops for larger pack sizes for some Uniball DX refills or some of the harder to find Schmidt refills. I have many hungry Karas Customs pens that need to be fed. Also, maybe some ink drops from Akkerman, Bung Box, or Sailor. Otherwise they are doing a great job.

Xina said...

I've love to see Tomoe River paper or notebooks, and some less expensive pens.

Michelle Leung said...

I'd like to see a mini iroshizuku bottles mass drop . Pls enter me :) I love Pelikan

Alex Pollatos said...

What would you like to see on Massdrop?
I would love to see more options for Lamy M63 and other rollerball refils in the future. If possible, I also think some Edison pens would be really cool to drop.

Ale-Alejandro said...

Definitely deals on different kinds of inks. Diamine would be amazing. Sailor Jentle inks too!

Greg Moore said...

I'm already on massdrop. change? time it takes to get something. like to see affordable pen related stuff (pens, paper, inks) that we can't usually get in the US.

John A said...

What would I like to see on Massdrop?


I'd love to see some pen combo sets, with, say a top roller ball pen AND a good entry level fountain pen. If I saw these it might be easier to convince friends to try fountain pens. I'm already a member of Massdrop and thanks for the giveaway!

Tas said...

Loving Massdrop. Always something new and often unexpected on offer. Thanks and keep up the good work.

Tristan_Noelmans said...

I like your idea of more articles on Massdrop.
Also would I love them to move to Europe so I don't have to pay import taxes when the value of the package is over 40 dollar.
Also: more Noodler inks!

Rick Paradiso said...

What would you like to see on Massdrop?
I'd love to see a Sailor 1911 Large or perhaps a Mont Blanc 149. Thanks!

Daniel Taub said...

Just keep bringing on the fountain pens, inks, notebooks and the like.

Steve said...

I'd like to see some Franklin-Christoph, Edison, Sailor, Sheaffer, and Waterman fountain pens... Oh, and more Faber-Castell/GvFC and Pelikan pens and inks. :-)

tani P. said...

Articles would be interesting! I love the concept of Massdrop, but often the stuff is pretty expensive. Maybe some less pricey that's still hard to get otherwise?

Holly said...

Not so much an addition to Massdrop, but I'd love to see a UK based option so we don't have to risk import duty on items shipped from the US. It's the only thing that's stopped me joining a drop before now.

Brad said...

Perhaps an offering from Visconti!

Stephen Ogden said...

Oooh ...

- Visconti
- Edison Pen Co.
- Kaweco
- OHTO
- Graf Von Faber Castell
- Field Notes
- Conklin All American
- Lamy 2000 3 color pen (yes sir)

Ed Hooton said...

I would love to see more paper deals.

I really like the idea behind MassDrop but I would like to see more reasonable shipping rates to Europe otherwise I will never be able to take advantage of its peculiarity.

I just made my first purchase through Massdrop and it is on its way. Yay! As an international member, I would like to see more of the things I am interested in being shipped from America, but I fully understand about the sometimes horrendous shipping costs.

What would you like to see on Massdrop?

I would like to see more fountain pens, pencils, art supplies and maybe interesting radios.

I would love to see a wider variety of items (brands, models, etc) available on Massdrop. Although I do appreciate having multiple opportunities to purchase something, I think the community would benefit from a bit more diversity.

I am already signed up for Mass Drop. I would love to see Edison Pens, Waterman, and paper (maybe a bundle)

On Massdrop? I would love to see some of the huge number of interesting Clairfontaine(/Rhodia) products that are not usually distributed in the US. You hit many of the usual items (which makes sense), but since you can gauge interest beforehand you may be able to negotiate the special orders better than any other possible seller. Of any way for us to get them, you are the best hope I think.

I would like to see more higher end fountain pens. I'm enjoying their audiophile drops - my other weakness besides pens and paper.

I would like to see more ink specials. Iroshizuku inks are $35.00/bottle and a deeply discounted set would be fantastic.

Eiren said...

I would like to see more inks and paper products, and leather pen cases on massdrop.
Adding more higher end pens from various companies such as waterman, pilot, and visconti would be awesome.

LisaC said...

I would like to see Massdrop do some Kaweco, a Visconti of some kind, and some freakin sweet Tomoe River paper

ZaphodBB said...

Would love to see some Rhodia and Midori..

I would love to see faster shipping times but I understand why it takes longer to have the items shipped through Massdrop.

Chuck Z said...

Massdrop offers some of the best prices for niche products such as fountain pens. An improvement I hope to see is faster processing and delivery times.

Reba said...

More Valdani threads in wide selection of colors in 8 and 12 weight.
Iroshizuku inks in a good selecton of colors in a group set at a savings.

Quality clothes and shoes for women.
Linens for bedroom.
Better deals on cotton quilting fabrics.

Hello gouuurmet peeeen (;))

! Love Massdrop, as they make me dream of beautifull pens & inks. i'm following every related drop, but did not buy anything yet. I'm still worried about returns - a ill-functionning nib, it happens - and the price for overseas shipping for inks & papers are very high.
So, what I'd like is that they come somewhere near me (France or western europa), so that I can buy with no worries & with decent shipping costs :)
Lucky americans... ;)

I would love to see an Akkerman ink drop! Some more in depth articles on pens/inks would also be nice, I'm always looking to learn more!

Jerricka Hill said...

I would like to see more variety within a drop. Rather than 5 of the same notebooks, why not 5 similar notebooks so you the chance to compare and see which one you like best? I would love to see a drop with different dot notebooks in the same size.

I'm a massdrop member and love the concept. I'd love to see articles and spotlights some of the products. I'm already a big fan of the site and wouldn't change much.

What would you like to see on Massdrop? I'm brand new to Massdrop, so I don't have a lot of experience, but I love trying lots of samples. Samples are always a great way to get to try, and really like product, before you buy. "Starter kits" for any type of product -- like men's toiletries, paper/pens/office supplies, etc. are a good bet.
