Happy New Year!  It's freezing here in NY today, with a foot of snow, and 15 degree weather, but the good news is that we are back.  I want to personally thank all of out supporters and just touch base with why we took a 6 month hiatus.   This business is a labor of love.  As gamers, and lovers of all things collectible, we turned our hobby into a business.  It worked out well...very well. However, the sheer amount of products we offered was too much, as some items sold out immediately, and the rest sat there collecting dust.  Managing all that inventory was a daunting task, and although we managed, it brought us to the point of exhaustion. The 80/20 rule says that you spend 80 percent of your time on 20 percent of your sales, or something to that effect.  That held true with our items, and so after carefully going through what "worked" and what didn't work, we brought back the proven popular items, and eliminated the shelf-warmers.  

You will notice the pricing is much more competitive, and as always we will offer the quick and secure shipping that we have always striven to give our customers.  We wish you and yours a prosperous new year, and may all your rolls be crits...

Hello, and welcome spring!  We have been hard at work here at DCC finding the most unique and interesting gaming supplies possible.  Our ceramic dice sets, dice coins and doublesix offerings have been an overwhelming, but exciting success with our customers.  

Important note to customers:  We will no longer have the "guest checkout" option on our site.  We realize this may not sit well for some, but when someone chooses this option, it limits our ability to help resolve issues (shipping, changes etc...) when they come up, because it only gives us limited information.   We want to serve our customers in the best way, and having an account helps make solving problems much quicker and easier for both us and the customer.  Thanks!

Hope everyone is having a wonderful summer.  We are busy over here at Dark Castle with all of the dice orders!  The response has been super-positive, and we appreciate all of the shares you have been providing us with on social media.  We will continue to find you the coolest dice around.  

Playing cards are still out best sellers, and the variety is staggering.  If you are considering buying cards, just pick one that fits your budget that looks attractive to you.  We put up plenty of pictures, but the experience is different when you have that deck in your hands.   It is a very tactile and visual experience.

Just a heads up, our 30% sale will be going to Sept. 15, so don't miss out!

As you may have noticed, we have added gaming dice from some of the biggest and best dice manufacturers in the business, including Chessex, Koplow Games, and Wiz Dice.  A custom design exclusive dice set with the Dark Castle Collectibles logo is in the works and should be available in a few weeks.  It is being produced by Chessex, and the prototypes look great.  We look forward to hearing your comments about what you want to see in our store!  Enjoy the summer weather (or the air conditioner!)

Big News!  We have changed our site name to DARK CASTLE COLLECTIBLES.  We are expanding the scope of our site, and now will be including collectible playing cards from top manufacturers such as Theory 11, Bicycle, Blue Crown and others.  We have been experimenting selling them on ebay this winter, and they have a very strong following.  These are not the cards grandpa played with.  They have new custom tuck boxes, faces and backs, and have very limited print runs.  We urge you to give these a try.  With attractive packaging, and sleek design, they are sure to please.  

We are also expanding our fantasy coin offerings, as out customers have been giving us an overwhelmingly positive response. Be on the lookout for more soon.

Summer is here!  With the coming of the summer so comes some great new product offerings.  We are proud to have been selected by Shire Post Mint to be an official distributor of their high-quality fantasy coins from George R.R. Martin's mega hit A Game of Thrones.  These are amazing coins, and really give one the feel of what actual coinage from the realms of Westeros would look, feel, and sound like. We have added onto the site gorgeous  high-quality Turquiose that we have found a dependable supplier for.  We tried these out on Ebay on a trial basis, and the were snapped up very quickly.  A fantasy coin section has also been added, as we have had many requests from gamers for high quality coins that they can use in their games to make them more authentic.  If you can think of anything that you would like to see us carry, just contact us, as many of you have done!  I actually do pick up the phone, and have had some wonderful conversations with likeminded fans of the product we carry.  I appreciate all of our loyal fan's enthusiasm and support for making our site a place for interesting items of limited production and high quality.  Look for a special  2nd anniversary coupon soon, if you are part of the mailing list.  Best wishes, and don't forget the sunscreen!

Happy new year to all!  We have made some changes, including a new phone number (1-631-909-7041) and a new PO Box for mailing payments, so please make note.

We have also restocked many items, and will continue to do so over the next few weeks. Chances are, if there was a product you liked that we sold out of, it will be in by the end of the month!  The copper nuggets are selling like wildfire, and we cannot keep them in stock. High-quality .9995 bismuth samples are currently being weighed and photographed. These will be priced and put on the site within the week.  They sell out every time. Bismuth is rarer than silver, and shows some really nice surfaces. 

We look forward to providing collectors and investors with the highest quality bullion available from the most reputable suppliers in the market.  The feedback from our customers has been overwhelmingly positive.  We truly appreciate the reviews you have been leaving us, as they have all been positive.  

Best wishes, and we look forward to 2014.

Phase 3 of our move is complete.  We are at our new  location, and everything is running smoothly.  Thank you for bearing with us during this hectic time.  We are glad to say it is behind us, and are looking forward to a promising new year.

We here at fullmetalbullion.com would like to thank all of our customers for your continued business, and wish you all a very happy and healthy holiday season.  We exist because of you, and we appreciate it.  In these uncertain times, it is both rewarding and reassuring to know that it is possible to relax and unwind with a great hobby without breaking the bank.  As always, we have no minimums and do not charge extra for not paying with a bank wire, (unlike 99% of our competition).

September 21, 2013

Phase one of our move is complete.  The business is up and running again.  We would like to say "thank you" to all who were so patient during this time.   We are at a temporary location while our new facility is being completed, but we have full capacity to fill orders.  We look forward to continuing our service and fulfilling all of your bullion needs (and wants!).

Summer is soon to be a memory, but there is much to look forward to.  We will be relocating  in about two weeks to make more room for our business.   At the time of the move, we will post a banner letting you know that we will take orders, but they will not be processed until a later date, most likely 10-14 days after receiving.   Thanks to you, our loyal customers, we need more room for our daily operations!  This company is growing, but you can always depend on us for personalized service.   I have been lucky enough to speak to many of you, and the feedback has been wonderful.  We love what we sell, and we are glad that we have found like-minded people that "get" why bullion collecting is so rewarding.   Being a collector (hoarder?) myself, I can appreciate that one can buy a nice looking bar or round and know exactly what they are getting.  Our original market for these items were collectors and investors, but the market and our customer base has expanded in ways that we did not even consider.  Teachers, professors and scientists have been buying the bullion for educational or research purposes because we provide rare elements at prices lower than the educational supply companies.  Jewelery makers have been incorporating the bullion into pieces that can be worn.   Home designers have been using the metals, mainly copper and brass to use as design elements in kitchens as backsplashes and countertop inlays.  Some use the bullion as barter for products, as they do not put much faith in the value of traditional currency and coin.  The creativity goes on and on.  And some are just like us,  simple collectors that appreciate the beauty and value of an element that you can hold in your hand.  What do you do with your bullion?  Drop us a line and let us know!

Many have inquired about a "job opening" based on an email sent to them allegedly from us via email.  This email is not from us, it is a phishing scam from some dishonest people and we advise that you do not respond to it.  Your spam filter should block it, but if it does not, we want you to be aware that this is a family run business and we are not currently hiring.  We are doing what we can on our end to rectify the situation.   Thanks for your understanding, and continued business!

I cannot believe that we are celebrating our one year anniversary!  We have had the pleasure of working with some wonderful customers, and cannot wait to share the celebration with everyone.  For the ENTIRE month of July, we are applying an automatic 10% off of all orders for every order, with no minimums and no exclusions!  It's just our way of thanking you for your business.

You may have noticed we have improved the quality of the pictures of the items on the site, and made descriptions more, well...descriptive.  

We have certainly grown this year in ways we didn't even plan for...we originally intended this site to be a place for bullion collectors and investors.  Never did we think that science teachers and designers would be interested in bullion products, and yet now they make up a large portion of our loyal customers.  

We will be appearing on a certain well known Travel Channel program soon as well, which we are extremely excited about.  We can't tell you the details (yet) but will let you know when we are allowed !

It has been a busy year, we are even moving soon because we need more space to operate.  It has also been a productive, rewarding, and educational year and we look forward to continuing to provide all with the best and unique quality bullion from around the globe.  

In short, thank you!

Spring has finally arrived after an extremely cold and snowy winter!  It is time for everyone to do some "spring cleaning" , including your friends here at fullmetalbullion.com, so we have slashed prices to make room for new items.  First-quality metal bullion, not seconds are on sale, so stock up now.  Most of the items on sale will not be restocked, so this is your last chance to get that bar or round you have been thinking about buying!  

On another note, we were recently the victim of an elaborate credit card scam, resulting in the loss of thousands of dollars.  These crimes were perpertrated by professional criminals who make a living off of such illicit behavior. As a result, gift card sales have been discontinued.  Local police were contacted, and FBI reports were filed on the individuals. We will not hesitate to persue those who try to ruin what we have worked so dilligently to create.

On a positive note, we were able to land on our feet, and although we did not recover any of our money, we are still able to bring you the best quality bullion available on the market, along with the best customer service around.  But of course, if you have bought from us, you know  that already!  If you haven't yet, give us a try...we aim to please!

Greetings, friends!  As you may have noticed, we have added many items to the site that we have received requests for from our customers.  They include mineral specimens, meteorites (super hot right now), semi-precious gemstones and historical items.  We hope you try 'em out, just please let us know what you think!   Our primary focus of course, is and always will be high-quality metal bullion bars and rounds, so don't worry...we haven't lost focus of our niche! We have also incorporated a little "social bribery" to our site in order to thank you with a 10% coupon code for liking us on Facebook, or subscribing to our mailing list.  We would also like to thank you for leaving reviews of our products on the site.  All have been 4 or 5 stars...thats what we aim for.  Stay tuned...a big restock on the mega-popular element coins coming within 2 weeks.  They sell out almost instantly.  Thanks, and stay warm!

Customer response to our site has been fantastic.  The items we sell are 100% geniune, and would certainly make unique gift items for the holidays.

***UPDATE***

Recently, we have had some issues processing credit card transactions through our processor, SecureNet.  We are happy to say that all issues are now resolved, and the system is again working perfectly.  Thanks for your patience.

The dog days of summer are upon us, and we at Full Metal Bullion, LLC have been hard at work preparing the site for the grand opening.  We have spent much time and effort stocking up the site with the  most interesting items.  Remember, not only are metal bars and round great gifts, they can be used as barter if the US currency becomes devalued.  A $100 bill can quite possibly one day be only worth the cotton fiber it is printed on.  A stock can be worth as little as the paper it its printed on.  However, metals will always have intrinsic value based on the scarcity and demand for that said metal.  And they just happen to look cool!   Enjoy the site.

-James

 

July 18, 2012

Hi all.  We are currently "ramping up" and anticipating the official GRAND OPENING of fullmetalbullion. com for AUGUST 1st, 2012.  We are just waiting for some technical items to be completed, as well as approval for securenet, our credit card processor.  Thanks for your patience and support.  As you can see, we are stocking up on some unique items.
