Limited Edition Group Buy Will be After DC!

Hi Pen Fans.

Just a quick note to make everyone aware that we will need to delay the 2014 LE Group Buy. My apologies!

We underestimated what we could accomplish post-vacation and pre-DC Pen Show.

We are currently sandwiched in between all of the catch up work that has to happen after our vacation, and all of the prep-work that goes into the DC Pen Show.

So the 2014 LE Group Buy will be announced after the DC Pen Show, which is the week of the 11th.

Stay tuned!

Edison Donating a Pen to Benefit Typhoon Haiyan/Yolanda Victims

Hi Pen Fans!

I've been following a lot of the terrible events in the Phillipines lately, and I was very moved by a gesture made by Leigh Reyes, who is a fountain pen fanatic, and resident of the Phillipines.

First off, Leigh is fine, as is her family and friends, but we can't say the same for a lot of others in her homeland.

Leigh is a fountain pen collector, and a pretty amazing artist!  I highly recommend checking our her blog, and well as some of her truly amazing art that she does with fountain pens.  Some great examples of her work are below...

Keeping the Art of Handwriting Alive

Strange Overtones - A Calligraphic Tribute

Writing on Water

I saw Leigh's blog post this weekend where she is announcing that she is taking some of her nicer pens, and auctioning them to benefit Typhoon Haiyan/Yolanda victims.  The proceeds of these auctions will go directly to the Phillipine Red Cross.

You can see her blog post with the pens that she is auctioning here.

We at Edison decided that participating in this benefit would be a good idea, so we are donating a Menlo Pump Filler in Striated Blue/Gold with a steel nib of the recipient's choice valued at $350 for Leigh to include in her auction.  Pics are below.

So please go visit Leigh's page where the auction is being hosted, and see if there are any pens over there that appeal to you (there really are some nice pens that she's parting with!).  Right now, the Edison Menlo is set at $89 with no reserve!

I'll quote Leigh directly from an email that she sent me earlier this evening... "Today’s headline in the Inquirer says 'Millions still hungry' and the Red Cross is in the best position to help."

Please consider bidding to benefit the typhoon victims!

Thanks!

2013 Limited Edition Morgan - an Acrylic Poll, and Then We are Ready!

Hi Pen Fans.

The results of the materials poll yielded Briar Swirl as the clear ebonite winner, so Briar Swirl will be the ebonite material for the 2013 LE Morgan.

However, the acrylic choice is not clear.  The poll required that people vote for both materials, which led to inaccurate acrylic results.  Besides, right now, there's a dead tie.

So we are going to do a quick poll just for the acrylics.  This poll will close on Thursday, 9:00 am EST.

Then we'll go to a purchasing period, then start manufacturing.

So if you plan on participating in the 2013 LE Morgan, please visit this link to cast your vote for the acrylic.

2013 Limited Edition Morgan Group Buy!

Hi Pen Fans!

Well, it's time for the 2013 Edison Limited Edition Group Buy Pen!  This year, we will be offering a Morgan in ebonite and also acrylic.

For those of you who regret not participating in last year's 2012 Pearl LE Group Buy, please remember that we only offer one Group Buy Pen each year direct from Edison, so this will be your only chance to get a Signature Line Pen direct (valued at $250 retail) at a significant discount until 2014.  Exact price is yet to be determined, but anticipate between $175 and $195.

I'll include photos of some of the offerings, but the entire process will be handled over at the Fountain Pen Network.  You can see all details over there.

So if you would like to participate in this year's group buy pen....

Please click here to see all details and participate in choosing what materials will be used.

After we have materials decided, we'll have a buying period.  Then we'll start manufacturing!

Thanks!

Beaumont Pneumatic Giveaway!

Hi Pen Fans!

In the past, I've never been shy about my praise for the Fountain Pen Geeks.

They've been around a relatively short time period, but in that time period, they have become (in my opinion) the best Fountain Pen Blog out there.  Awesome Reviews, Inkcyclopedia, Podcasts, Fountain Pen TV, and Pen Show Coverage only scratches the surface of the features and content over there. 

If you don't already, I recommend adding them to your blog reader, iTunes podcasts, or simply bookmark them (and I usually don't go out of my way to promote any pen blogs).

So when the "Geeks" asked me to donate a pen for their February Giveaway, I was more than happy to oblige!

Please visit this link to check out all the details.....but essentially, they will have a write-in giveaway that has a deadline of February 28th.

And the lucky winner will receive any Beaumont Pneumatic that is Currently Inventoried at the time of the drawing.

Thanks!

Brian at Edison
