About 10 days ago, the web site had a major issue when trying to purchase the items in your basket. This manifested itself as a time out when trying to finalise the transaction. As we do not
charge your card as part of the online process - only when we ship - there was no security risk, however, some people did fail to get their orders processed.
We finally tracked this down to a problem with printers on the system. Once this was cleared, the web site returned to normal.
If you did have a problem at that time, please try again - we are offering you two GREAT reasons to come back to us soon.
In this issueFather's Day Iwata Special
5% Discount on the Web Site
Web Site Redesign
New Arrivals, Blogs and Twitter
As part of our celebrations for Father's day (David has four kids so it's always a good day for him), we are offering a very special discount on everything Iwata up until 30th June.
What better Father's day gift than a new airbrush, or even a new airbrush/compressor combination. We have always offered a discount when you buy a compressor and an airbrush as a combination but it just got even better.
15% of all Iwata items including airbrushes, compressors and combination packs.Examples
Iwata Eclipse Airbrush - Recommended retail price £129.99 - now £110.49 - that's a saving of £19.50!
Iwata Sprint Jet Compressor - Recommended retail price £190.00 - now £161.50 - that's a saving of £28.50!
Both together when bought individually have a total RRP of £319.99 - our combination price is £242.91 - that's a saving of £77.08 and a massive 24% OFF!
FREE worldwide delivery still applies!
As of now, and valid until at least 31 July 2010, we are giving you a 5% discount off everything on the web site (except for Iwata items - see above). This discount is applied automatically. You will see your savings in the description of any item you browse. Needless to say, this is in addition to our already famous FREE Worldwide delivery*.
*(Sorry but anything totalling £6 or below is charged at £2 - this is because of the way that the UK Royal Mail charges for its small packets)
We have just released the first part of our re-designed web site. We hope that you like the clean new look. Over the next couple of days we will be rolling out all of the remaining pages so that the whole thing will be a better experience. Built in to the site is a feature that checks both the stock situation with us and with our suppliers. This means that if we don't have it and they do, we will confirm the availability. As we order almost daily, even if the item has to be supplied to us, it will still mean a fast delivery to you - and still FREE!
If we state that an item is out of stock then this is because neither we nor our wholesalers have the item. In that case if you place it on your order, we will ship it as soon as it becomes available.
Every week we update the site for all the newly released items. This is available from the New Arrivals link on the home page.
Twitter is a bit of a mystery to us but we have recently started to Tweet(!) news to our Twitter page.
