As you can see from the news the COVID-19 situation in Europe is worsening. Also in Finland our government has taken harder measures to control the spread of the virus. Some of our foreign customers have asked us if ordering from us is any longer possible as Finland has closed its borders.
The closing of the borders concerns people's free movement only, so it does not affect freight. We can still supply orders normally to Finland as well as to other countries. In some countries internal emergency actions ordered by authorities (such as curfew) might delay deliveries. There are major regional differences between countries.
Stay safe, stay healthy!

We take the COVID-19 coronavirus seriously and we take the situation into account in many ways in our operations. In addition to our small work community and remote location, we also take extra good care of hygiene and prevent anyone from visiting our warehouse. We are able to ship orders within the normal time frame, but it is best to be prepared for delays of a few days in deliveries.
We understand the struggle our clients go through in this severe situation and from our part we do our best to serve you as well as we can.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us.
We wish you well. Be safe.

Because of coronavirus situation Posti has disabled all cash on delivery services from the packages delivered straight to the customer. This means cash on delivery is not available in Posti Express 14-, Posti Express 9- and Koti 21- packages.
Other changes caused by coronavirus are that we are at the moment out of stock with face masks. Also the great demand of hand disinfectants has led manufacturers to struggle with deliveries. Products, such as Desinfektol, are still available but might soon be out of stock for short period of time due to high demand. EasyCleaning –hand disinfectant will soon be sold out and at the moment it seems we will get more next time in June. Replacing products by other manufacturers are coming in stock during next week.
The restrictions in mobility of labour and goods in manufacturing countries have caused delays in both manufacturing process and deliveries. For now we have been able to keep the availability of main products but in case the situation changes we will inform our customers here in our news feed.
Here are some estimated arrival times for novelties and pre-order goods.
- Bishop Wand -shipment 2-3 weeks
- FK Irons LightningBolt 2-3 weeks
- FK Irons Flux 2-3 weeks
- Cheyenne Sol Nova Unlimited 2-3 weeks
- Bishop Da Vinci Cartridge 2.0 in May

During monitoring project of tattoo and permanent inks, the supervising authority of Sweden has discovered defects in several ink batches. Inks from one of these batches were also in our stock. We will be contacting all customers who purchased ink from this batch from us directly today, but we also ask that you please check the production batch number in case you have this product in use. If you find any bottles of ink from this batch in your possession or are using it we ask you to stop using the ink and contact the supplier you bought the ink from so they can perform the product recall measures required.

The Posti strike has ended and parcels will start moving as usual and all operations will resume little by little. Some small delays may still be present during the aftermath of the strike in the coming days.
25th of November 2019
In addition to the Posti strike the other strikes started by other unions in support of this strike have a significant impact on the mobility of Posti parcels in Finland. Delays are generally about 1-2 business days with Posti Express parcels even in bigger cities. In less populated areas delays can be considerably longer. In basic Posti parcels, delays are long throughout the country because some of the pick-up points are down. We therefore recommend that you use Matkahuolto or DHL for domestic shipments.
With shipments to other countries, Express shipments (DHL and TNT / Fedex) operate normally, Economy shipments will take an extra 1-2 business days to arrive due to the strike. EMS shipments to Russia may be delayed by several business days.
7th of November 2019
According latest news there will be a large strike in Posti, company that takes care of Finnish postal services. The strike will mainly concern distribution of letters and newspapers, but most likely will delay package deliveries also. Delivery times may be extended because of this. As it stands the strike should not affect the delivery times of other companies providing logistic services. We highly recommend choosing Matkahuolto or DHL as delivery method for orders inside Finland. The strike does not affect DHL and TNT/Fedex deliveries sent abroad from Finland.
6th of November 2019
Effects of a possible Post and Logistics Union (PAU) strike on deliveries to Finland 11.11. - 24.11.
Posti delivery, handling and transportation will be on strike from November 11th to November 24th, unless agreement is reached with the employer in collective bargaining. During this time, we recommend using other shipping methods, such as Matkahuolto and DHL or TNT/FedEx.
It is advisable to prepare for a strike by ordering critical, important products before the strike begins (11.11.) and in larger quantities than usual. Replenishment orders during a strike should be made taking into account possible longer than usual multi-day delivery time.
If the collective action measures expand and the transport unions start subsidy strikes, delivery times for other delivery methods will also decline. In this case, we will do our best to arrange substitute delivery where possible.
We will get more detailed information on the actual extent of the strike on 7.11. and we'll update the information here at that point.

Changes to Matkahuolto services are coming at the turn of the month.
- Matkahuolto will change its Cash on Delivery policy, it will no longer be possible to choose Cash on Delivery as the payment method with Matkahuolto Express Parcel door-to-door delivery. Cash on Delivery payment continues to work normally with Matkahuolto Bus Parcels and Matkahuolto Near Parcels.
The Cash on Delivery service provided by Posti also remains unchanged, so COD payments can only be paid by card in door-to-door deliveries like before and with orders received from a Posti pick-up point in cash or by card.
- In the future, Matkahuolto's arrival notifications will only come via e-mail and text message, Matkahuolto will no longer call you before delivery.
The changes will take effect on April 1, 2019, but we will remove the ability to use Cash on Delivery payment from the affected delivery methods a couple of days ahead of time so that the orders sent before this will be delivered when the service is still unchanged.

Important notification concerning package freight during December: The resources of freight companies are overloaded due to great increase in package traffic during Christmas season, and therefore minor delays in shipments can occure.
In Finland small Posti and Matkahuolto pick-up points and Smart post parcel services are not available at all times, because of the storage problems. In cases like these Posti delivers the package to the nearest bigger pick-up point, and they have also set up new Pop-Up pick up points as well to manage the parcel traffic volumes. This can be the case with Matkahuolto also. During the season we recommend to choose delivery to the destination or to some bigger Matkahuolto and Posti offices, to avoid all inconvenience and delays.
We finally received TatSoul shipment, so Wrath Vortex and Nexus disposable tubes are again available!
Added on 19th of November 2017

- Bishop Fantom machines will arrive in about 7 days. Also these pre-orders can be then delivered.
All of these three shipments are on their way, and if no unpleasant surprises occur these timetables should stand.

We are about to take Klarna payment options in our payment selection. This feature has been our customers wish for a long time, as Klarna is easy to use for both private customers and companies also. We are still on testing period with Klarna, but customers are able to use it completely normally. Payment option with Klarna is invoice with 14 days net, of which we charge 1,8% billing fee. There are no other charges in this form of payment. There is also option to pay in installments. We do not charge anything from this option, but Klarna will charge installment fee according to valid price list of given time. Line of credit is 2000€ during this testing period, but after few months the credit limit will be raised up to 5000€. During testing period Klarna is available for our customers in Finland and Germany, and very soon also in Austria.
Another great reform in our webshop will happen in near future, when we will update in ePages Enterprice-version. This should improve the website performance significantly and we will be able to add some useful features for our customers use. Layout will be also updated but visual changes will happen later. For now we have decided to invest in performance and usability of which we have received some negative feedback from our clients. We believe this update will improve the webshop and make it easier to use. This will also allow other currencies to be used so that in future we can offer Klarna as payment option in countries like Sweden, Denmark and Norway.

Crazy machine deals in SALE folder under Helsinki Ink Leftover Crazy Deals -header!
Inkjecta news; because of great demand, the producer has had some difficulties to provide machines for the market fast enough. This is why they have decided to make new model of the popular Elite machine. New machine is made of carbon fiber and titanium, and that makes it even lighter and faster to produce. We will receive small patch of these new machines during next week. Differences compared to usual Elite model are; Titanium lock nut, carbon fiber frame and improved CAM. All other features and performance are the same. Elite Titan is more expensive to produce, but will be sold with the same price as Elite. This is possible as some of the Torsion drive bars, that are included in Elite version, are not included with Elite Titan version. We will get the normal Elite version in stock in future, but delivery time is long. The order we made in last October, will be in our stock in about June/July 2017.
We have had lots of queries about FK irons Xion, and it will be in stock in June. The producer will give global date of publication to the product, and it can be bought from us on the same day. More information about the product will be given as soon as it is provided by the producer.
Ink Machines Scorpion machine is coming, but the date of publication is still unknown.
