A Nice Article from WCPO IN Cincinnati!

Posted by on Nov 18 2014

Hi Pen Fans!

A really nice article was recently published regarding fountain pens on the WCPO in Cincinnati website.

This article does a good job or outlining three Ohio-based businesses…  Appointments in Cincinnati, the Bexley Pen Company in Columbus, and (your’s truly) the Edison Pen Company in Milan.  Pretty neat that there’s so much happening with fountain pens in Ohio!

A Great Ohio Show!

Posted by on Nov 11 2014

Hi Pen Fans!

As usual, the Ohio Pen Show was wonderful!

I’ll attach a slideshow with  my photos below.

(If you can’t see this slideshow, click here.)

We are still pretty exhausted, and might not be working much today.  If you are expecting an email from me, I will respond today or tomorrow.  If you don’t hear from me by the end of the day on Wednesday, feel free to reach out.

Thanks!

Fountain Pen Day Special and Ohio Pen Show!

Posted by on Nov 05 2014

Hi Pen Fans!

Highlights from the video….

1.  Friday, November 7th is Fountain Pen Day!  We will be offering a free italic grind (stub, cursive italic, or crisp italic), valued at $40 with the purchase of any Current Inventory Pen.  Click here for the gallery showing these pens, or you can watch the video above to see them.  There is also a slideshow at the bottom of this post showing these pens.

2.  To take advantage of this offer, send me an email with your request on Fountain Pen Day between 12:00am and 11:59pm, EST.  Obviously, I might not be able to respond to emails sent outside of business hours and additionally, I’ll be busy at the Ohio Pen show.   However, as long as your email is in my inbox within those hours, we’ll honor the free grind.

3.  The Ohio Pen Show is also on Friday, the same day as Fountain Pen Day, and will continue until Sunday.  We hope to see you there!

4.  If you request a pen for the Fountain Pen Day Special that happened to sell at the Ohio Pen Show, fear not, we will either figure out an alternative pen, or we can remake the pen for you.

Happy Fountain Pen Day!  I hope to see you at the Ohio Show!

2014 LE Glenmont Finished!

Posted by on Oct 31 2014

Hi Pen Fans!

The 2014 LE Glenmont is finished, and heading out to the owners!

This was a larger project than what I anticipated, so it took us a little longer than the LE pen from last year.

I will attach a slideshow below that shows all photos from beginning to end. If you can’t see this slideshow, click here.

We managed to ship about 130 of the 170+ pens yesterday, so many of you have already received tracking information.  The rest of the pens will ship today.  If you bought the pen and you don’t have tracking information by Saturday, check your spam folder first.  If you still have no information at that time, then feel free to email us.

I’d like that thank everyone for participating!  We’ll do it again next year!

LE Glenmont Update #3

Posted by on Oct 20 2014

Hi Pen Fans!

The 2014 LE Glenmonts are moving along nicely.  See recent pics below, or the entire gallery of progress is here.

Just about all of the Pearlized Wine Pens are off the lathe, sanded and polished.

All of the Cumberland Pens are off the lathe, but not sanded and polished yet. That’s what we are working on now.

Then clip attachment, final assembly, final touchups, and nib work.

Right now, I’ll give a very rough estimated shipping date of after the Ohio Pen Show.  So probably before Thanksgiving.  But please don’t hold me to that, as unexpected things can happen.  In any case, I’ll keep the updates timely!

Thanks!

A Great Michigan Pen Show!

Posted by on Oct 19 2014

Hi Pen Fans!

As usual, our friends up in Michigan put on another excellent Michigan Pen Show!

While it’s not the largest show out there, it’s tons of fun, a bit more relaxed, and all the vendors are excellent.  At a show like this, myself and other vendors can usually take more time with each customer, which makes for a great experience all around.  And of course, you’ll still find all things vintage and modern, as you can see within my photos.

I’ll attach a slideshow of my photos from the show below!

Big thanks to our friends up north!

Posted by on Oct 16 2014

Hi Pen Fans!

We’ll be packing up today for the Michigan Pen Show!

If you haven’t attended, it’s a really nice intimate show and there are always plenty of excellent vendors in attendance.  You’ll find all things in modern as well as vintage pens.

We will be bringing our Current Inventory with us.  I’ll include a slideshow below that will show the pens that we’ll be bringing.

We hope to see you at the show!

Hi Pen Fans!

The 2014 LE Glenmonts are moving along nicely!

We have almost all of the Wine pens off of the lathe, and are currently sanding and polishing.

The Cumberland pens are still on the lathe.  However, some are off and have moved along to sanding and polishing!

A Website Facelift!

Posted by on Oct 06 2014

Hi Pen Fans!

If you are viewing this blog post on our website, then you’ll be seeing our new look!

If you are not on our site currently, feel free to head on over to www.edisonpen.com and  have a look!

I am very happy with the new appearance, but there’s still some minor formatting issues to take care of, which we’ll be working on over the next few days.  If you see any issues with the website, feel free to let us know, but we should be ironing out all of these small details in the next few days.

As a side note, the 2014 LE Glenmonts are coming together nicely!  I apologize for not having a more recent update, but during the time that we transitioned over to this new appearance, I couldn’t post anything or risk losing the content.  So expect to see a 2014 LE Glenmont update early this week!

Let me know what you think of the new look and have a great day!
