Another great giveaway is in the books! Here are the winners of the Kaweco Sneak Peek Giveaway
Kaweco Ballpoint Pens winner: Megan M.
Kaweco Fountain Pens winner: Diana B.
Congratulations to both of you! I will be sending you each an email with further details. Thank you to everyone who entered, and keep your eyes peeled for the new Kaweco barrel colors in our New Arrivals
section very soon.
Here's another sneak preview of one of the new products we're bringing in next week!
The Staedtler Triplus FineLiner Pens make the world a more colorful place with their superfine, metal-clad tips.
They have an ergonomically shaped triangular barrel, helping you add color your work with hours of fatigue-free writing.
Another great thing about these pens (besides the multiple colors available) is that they are tested "dry safe" and can be left uncapped for days without drying up! The pens are also "airplane-safe," as they prevent pen leakage while on board an aircraft by automatically equalizing pressure.
As another bonus feature, the Staedtler Triplus FineLiner box set converts into an easel-like pen stand, allowing you to easily access each color when you need to.
Keep an eye out on our New Arrivals
section for the Staedtler Triplus FineLiner pens along with more new products next week!
I often get asked the question “What is the best fountain pen for beginners”? When I answered it for the first time several years ago there was only one answer, and that answer hasn’t changed to this date: the Lamy Safari
It’s not often that a pen is this universally loved, and with good reason. Released initially in 1980, the Safari was aimed at a younger demographic, especially students. The bright ABS plastic body, molded grip, and unique clip design made it a huge success, and the design has remained essentially unchanged to this day.
What made this fountain pen great for students in 1980 makes it great for those just starting with fountain pens today - it is so easy to use! As seen in this video
, a simple twist of the barrel and the ink cartridge snaps in to place and you are ready to write. That is all there is to it, and for a beginning fountain pen user, that is all you need.
But what really makes this pen shine - and what makes it a JetPens Classic - is that it gives you options beyond the beginner level, all with the same fountain pen body. When you are ready to move past cartridge refills, all you need is the Lamy Fountain Pen Z 24 Converter
and a bottle of fountain pen ink
. We even have a tutorial
to help you use your converter for the first time.
The choices are truly endless. From barrel colors, to nib widths, to a rainbow of available inks, this is what makes the Lamy Safari a JetPens Classic.
