Among this latest batch of new products, JetPens is happy to bring in Aurora fountain pens!

Shown above: Aurora Ipsilon Satin Fountain Pen - Fine Nib - Blue Body, also available in two other body colors.

Although these fountain pens may be new to a lot of people in the US, they have been around since 1919, the year the treaty of Versailles was signed at the end of World War I. Aurora means "the dawn" in Italian, and the company was born in an Italy marked by a post-war crisis, but bubbling with great hopes for recovery.

Shown above: Aurora Style Classic Fountain Pen - Fine Nib - Chrome Cap + Chrome Body, also available in two other finishes.

For almost one hundred years the name of Aurora has been synonymous with high quality, good taste and fine Italian craftsmanship. These pens are known for their stylish design aesthetic and consistent quality standards (not to mention, they are beautifully packaged!).

Shown above: Aurora Style Gemstones Fountain Pen - Fine Nib - Aquamarine Body, also available in two other body colors.

JetPens is proud to carry the Aurora brand of fountain pens and inks!

This week at JetPens we are releasing a ton of new products, a lot of which are new inks! In particular, we find the new Platinum Mix Free fountain pen ink line to be fascinating.

Platinum has created this line of inks with the idea of color mixing in mind. The inks are specially formulated with pure and balanced dyes that will not muddle up when mixed together! This allows you to create the ink color of your choice, and opens up endless possibilities. It's even possible to mix up to three different shades, though you can only mix these Mix Free inks with each other, and not any other ink type or brand.

The image below is an extended version of the 1:1 mixing ratio color chart included with every ink bottle:

The ink bottles themselves are sold individually, and can be used as solo inks as well. The Mixing Kit is the tool you need to start your own ink color creations though, and includes a 50 ml bottle of ink diluter liquid (for lightening your mixed ink shades), an empty 50 ml bottle (to store your newly created ink color), and two droppers to help you measure the exact Mix Free ink proportions that you need.

We're excited to carry this new Platinum Mix Free fountain pen ink here at JetPens!

Among this recent batch of new products, JetPens now carries the Stabilo Point 88 Fineliner marker pens!

Frequently requested at JetPens, these 0.4 mm size pens feature a smudge-proof, water-based ink that is available in 25 vibrant colors. The wide variety of colors and the convenient fine points of these pens make them perfect for artwork, writing, illustrations, and anything else you can use them for!

The tip is designed to be long-lasting and is encased in metal to extend the lifespan. This design feature also makes these pens suitable for ruler and stencil use.

They have a nice, slim hexagonal body that feels great in the hand when writing or drawing, reminiscent of a wooden colored pencil.

Here is our writing sample of all 25 colors available:

Add some color to your drawings by adding these great pens to your collection!

This year, JetPens has been trying to bring customers as many new products as possible. This latest new product release features a bunch of cool items, like the Pilot Vanishing Point fountain pens, Uni Signo 207 gel ink pens in 0.38 mm size, Alvin Draft-Matic drafting pencils and the Pilot Down Force ballpoint pens!

Some of our most frequently requested new products are the Uni Mitsubishi Pin Pens.

These drawing pens are highly economical and feature a water-proof and fade-proof pigment ink. There are black, blue and red pigment ink color versions, as well as an oil-based black ink version (which is great for more permanent application with your artwork).

They are similar to the Sakura Pigma Micron pens we already carry, though some feel that the Uni Mitsubishi Pin pens are of higher quality. Overall the fine points of these pens make them perfect for technical drawing or outlining work, and JetPens is happy to introduce the Pin Pens to our growing community!
