Brand new products are live on the site!



As usual, we're introducing a bunch of new goodies that are perfect for school or the office!

The Midori Clips and Pin Clips make their debut, and are a wonderful addition to the D-Clips paper clips we already carry.



We brought in some new roll-up pencil cases from Cplay, that have a stylish design and are made out of genuine leather. Other new cases at JetPens are from Lihit Lab, and are "Designed for Arrangement" as seen on the case badges. We love the compartments in these new pencil cases!



Other than the Tombow Olno pencils that were previewed in our last blog entry, we now carry the frequently requested Kaweco Al Sport mechanical pencil that are the perfect companion for your Kaweco AL Sport fountain pen!


These are only a few items out of our latest new product launch, make sure to check out all of the new arrivals here!

We decided to give all you JetPens viewers a little sneak preview of one of the new items that will be launched later this week.



The Tombow OLNO mechanical pencil features a unique design mechanism that actually lets you extend the lead by bending the body! "Olno" is a play on the Japanese word "oru", or to fold/bend, and we think that this new pencil from Tombow is perfectly named.





The pencil body can be bent in any direction, and the purpose of this feature is to allow the user to extend lead without having to adjust their hand grip much, if at all.

My own normal writing position pictured below:

I only have to reposition my thumb for support to bend the pencil body while still in hand:


The button at the top of the pencil is a standard clicker which can also extend lead. Underneath the button is a small eraser, which is designed to be a tiny hand held eraser. (Good for detail erasing perhaps?)



Available in eight different body colors, the Tombow Olno mechanical pencils will be live on the website by the end of the week. Stay tuned to our JetPens New Arrivals section!
