How the Canadian Rail delays affect you: Eikon Standard & Premium Glove Update

February 27, 2020   |   By The Eikon Team


A rail yard somewhere in Canada...

We don't know about you, but around here we try hard not to spend too much time reading the news. It's nearly impossible though, to go anywhere and not hear about the bigger news stories happening in Canada. The Canada-wide railway delays have now come to an end after 18 days, and your Eikon Standard and Premium Gloves are currently caught in this traffic jam of epic proportions.

That's right, a massive container packed full of Eikon Gloves is sitting somewhere out there on the great Canadian railway, bound for Kingston, Ontario. Although we are working closely with our shipping company (thank you for taking our daily calls, texts and emails), we still don't know exactly when our shipment will reach us and hit our warehouse shelves. What we do know is that things are moving, and if they don't stop we should see your favourite gloves back in stock in the around the second week of March.

The tattoo supply business is just one of the many industries being impacted by the ongoing delays, and although this is out of almost everyone's control we want to thank you for your patience while we await the arrival of our shipment.

In the meantime, if you have any questions about suitable or similarly fitting gloves as a temporary alternative to either Eikon's Standard or Premium series gloves, please contact our Customer Service Team via chat, email or phone.

Eikon Device was started in 1994, working out of a small garage, manufacturing the first needle specifically designed to meet the needs of tattoo artists. That started an odyssey of research and development that has seen many advancements in tattoo equipment including four generations of Eikon meter/power supplies, the Tru-Spring Armature Bar system, Griffin Tubes, Hydra Needles, and Symbeos, Helix and Green Monster Machines.
