We've returned from the wonderful Pen Round Up in Portland.

Great to catch up with old Portland area friends and meet some new ones, too. Thank you to all who stopped by the show to see us.

Today and tomorrow, we are catching up on shipping out your orders that arrived while we were away. We always work on the first in, first out principle meaning the orders received first will be shipped first.

Big batch going out today and if all goes smoothly the remainder will be shipped on Thursday. Appreciate your patience and your orders!

Inky Greetings will be going out to subscribers on Thursday at 8am CDT, so keep your eyes open for a fun issue that we hope you will not only enjoy, but find something to purchase as well.

Very sad to learn that Jim Gaston passed away this morning. 

Updated July 13, 2015

Jim was involved in so many productive and exciting things during his life, not the least of which was the fountain pen collecting community. Jim was there when I started collecting pens over 30 years ago and I know that many of you knew him well. Far bigger than his association with fountain pens was his involvement with his resort on the White River and endless lobbying to preserve and protect the natural resources of Arkansas. Thank you, Jim, for all you have done to make the world a better place, may you rest in peace.


Waterman Adverts

Vintage advertising is indeed spectacular, but I do believe Waterman had some of the most lovely designs of all the pen manufacturers back in the day. 
We have many for your to select from including five newly listed Waterman adverts for you today.
