Back From Vacation!

Hi Pen Fans!

Well, our vacation was wonderful, and well needed!  We have our batteries recharged, and we're hitting the ground running today!

If you are expecting an email from me, I will say that I'm currently under a small mountain of emails!  I'm hoping to have all emails done today, but just in case, please allow until tomorrow if you are expecting an email from me.

Please remember that the 2014 Limited Edition Group Buy is just about ready to be announced.  Most likely, that project will be announced this week!

And the DC Pen Show is right around the corner!  We hope to see you there!

I'll attach a few vacation photos from our stay at the Grand Canyon below.

Hi Pen Fans!

We will be taking a much needed vacation for two weeks starting the 14th until the 25th.

We don't take a lot of vacations (and hardly ever two weeks), so it's definitely time to recharge!

I will finish up emails today and then I'll be doing my best to stay away from the computer until the week of the 28th.  So if I'm slow with emails, you'll know why.

Don't forget that the 2014 Limited Edition Group Buy will be announced upon our return, so stay tuned!

A Great Vacation! Back to Work!

Hi Pen Fans!

Our Disney Vacation was great!  I'll include a few photos below....

Our son had a blast!

I managed to get this shot out of pure luck!  During the fireworks show, Tinkerbell exits the castle on a wire and she is very well lit up.  I managed to capture her trip out of the castle, as well as a firework that shoots by her!



And look who we ran into!  The Goulet Pen Company as well as the Edison Pen Company happened to be vacationing the same week!  We had a nice breakfast together!  It really IS a small world!  :)

So we'll be back to work this week.  If you are expecting an email from me, I should be able to get through all emails tomorrow, Monday.

A Vacation!

Hi Pen Fans!

My family will be taking a nice vacation the week of March 3rd.

We are taking our son to Disney!  We can't wait!

And the way that Ohio has treated us this winter, it will be awfully nice to be in Florida for a week!

Usually with vacations, I still try to keep up with a few emails, but on this trip, I'm going to do something that I rarely ever do, and not look at emails at all.  I really need a vacation from my computer!

So I will not be fielding emails until we get back on the 10th.

Hopefully when we get back, spring will have arrived early in Ohio!  

Have a great week!

Back in Action!

Hi Pen Fans!

Well, we took a much needed break over the Holidays, and we're back to work today.  We're awfully blessed to have jobs that we really look forward to getting back to after a break!

So if you are expecting an email from me, you'll get it today.

On our plate for 2014 will include a new pen model with another pretty novel filling system.  We will be doing a Production Line Limited Edition at one point, a new material will be going to a Production Line pen, and remember that we'll always do a Signature Line Limited Edition in the late winter/early spring.  If some of you are wondering about a timeline for these new items, I really can't narrow this down, except for the Signature Line LE, which always happens roundabout March.  So stay tuned!  We will always be striving to bring out great new products!

I wanted to say thanks to all of you for a great 2013, and we look forward to an excellent 2014!

Wrapping Up For the Holidays!

Hi Pen Fans!

Just a quick note to make everyone aware that we will be wrapping things up today, and will be away from the shop until the New Year.

If you are expecting an email from me, you should hear from me today.  But after that, I'll be trying to stay away from emails to spend time with family.  However, I will take a look at emails from time to time, so if anyone has an urgent issue, I'll probably see it.

Everyone have a great Holiday Season!

Have a Great Thanksgiving!

Hi Pen Fans!

It's that time of year for us to give thanks!  Here at Edison we have a lot to be thankful for!  Our business has been growing since the whole crazy thing started!  When I lost my pharmaceutical job about 6-7 years ago, I would have never thought that I'd be running a successful fountain pen business today! 

Thanks for supporting our business!

My wife and I just celebrated our 10th anniversary last weekend.  My wife's parents celebrated their 40th anniversary in June, and my parents just celebrated their 50th anniversary a couple of weeks ago!  On top of that, everyone is healthy and happy! 

Our 8 year old is doing great in school, is awfully well-mannered, and is truly a blessing in our lives!

So again, thanks for supporting our business, and everyone have a great Thanksgiving!  Please take a moment this week to recall all that you have to be thankful for. 

Below is a nice family photo of some fun time after the Chicago Pen Show!

We will be working today and tomorrow, but then we'll be heading to my parents for Thanksgiving on Wednesday, so if I'm slow with emails this week, you'll know why.

A Crazy Weekend, and Leaving for Vacation....

Hi Pen Fans!

I'm sure that a lot of you are aware of the power outages that I mentioned late last week, which really put a damper on penmaking.

Our power was out from Thursday until Saturday.  Within that time, our sump pump backup failed, which flooded the basement, creating quite a hassle over the weekend. 

Everyone is fine and everything is back on track, but this will put me behind on a few pens.  I will contact the owners effected by this directly.

But the real reason for the blog post is to make everyone aware that we will be leaving the middle of this week for vacation, returning around the 26th.  We really only take one vacation each year where we actually travel, so we're going to try and detach from work.  If I am slow with emails, you'll know why.

And then stay tuned the week of the 29th.  That's when we'll launch this new filling system that I've been mentioning lately!
