LA Pen Show and Quick Facility Tour!

Hi Pen Fans!

This weekend is the LA Pen Show! Have a look at the video below to see the pens that we’ll be bringing. If you can’t attend the show and see a pen that you like, feel free to email me to see if it’s still available after the show.

Additionally, it’s been a while since we’ve done some Behind-the-Scenes videos. Below I’ll give a quick tour of our new facility and new machines. I’ll be following up with a much more thorough video showing our processes and applications when things settle down after the show so stay tuned!

Hope to see you in LA!

Ohio Pen Show!

Hi Pen Fans!

We are packed and ready for a great weekend at the Ohio Pen Show!

We’ve been so busy preparing that I’m afraid that I didn’t have time to put together a video showing what we’ll be bringing, but our inventory is not far off from what we we brought to the Michigan Pen Show a couple of weeks ago. This video will give you a good idea as to the pens that we’ll have with a few exceptions.

We’ll be set up Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

We hope to see you there!

Michigan Pen Show!

Hi Pen Fans!

We will be attending the Michigan Pen Show this weekend!

See the video below for the inventory that we’ll be bringing. There are a lot of pens that we’ve made in some excellent new translucent materials.

If you see a pen in the video that you like but cannot attend the show, feel free to email me to inquire.

Stay tuned, as after the Michigan Pen Show, I’ll put together a blog post featuring these new materials that you see in the video.

Then in two weeks, we hope to see you at The Ohio Pen Show!

Stay tuned!

Back From Vacation, Can’t Make DC This Year! :(

Hi Pen Fans.

Just a quick note to make everyone aware that we’re back from vacation and well rested! I’m tackling my mountain of emails now, so if you are expecting a response from me, you’ll receive it today or tomorrow.

But the real reason for the post…this is a difficult decision, but we won’t be able to make the DC Pen Show this year.

Bottom line, a lot of you know that we’ve had new machinery arrive. I’ll try to keep this brief and not too technical, but these new machines don’t simply plug in and make pens! Besides rigging crews, tooling, setup, and a steep learning curve regarding operation, the biggest job is programming. These machines speak a different language than our old machines. So literally every program for every part for every pen has to be rewritten, proofed, tested, and then tweaked for fine tuning. This has proven to be a huge job. Much larger than I had expected. Right now, I’m about 20% done with the re-writing and re-programming process.

So this means that I’ve been doing consistently 10-12 hour days before vacation for about a month, and will continue to do so until I’m finished.

A pen show like DC typically takes 2-3 weeks of preparation in regards to inventory leading up to a very hectic weekend. Then we really don’t get back into our groove until about 1 week after the show.

So it just won’t be feasible this year for us. This is not an easy decision, as we truly enjoy seeing our clients live at the pen shows. Then even though the pen shows are very hectic and busy (especially DC) they are a ton of fun!

Once we are in full operation with the new machines, we’ll get things back to normal here.

Thanks!

Michigan Pen Show!

Hi Pen Fans!

We are packing now for the Michigan Pen Show! We should be set up by 3:00 today (Friday), and then we’ll be set up all day Saturday.

We’ll have a bit less than 200 pens with us, including some pretty phenomenal new materials that we’ve made into some Menlo Draw Fillers!

See the photo below to check out some of these new materials. As opposed to many of our previous translucent materials, most of these have a clear base material, rather than tinted. This really makes a pretty incredible appearance in my opinion! When these pens are filled with ink that’s sloshing around inside, they will look pretty amazing as the ink will show through better than typical!

We hope to see you at the show!

DC Pen Show!

Hi Pen Fans!

We are packed up and heading to DC for the Pen Show!

We’ll be bringing around 225 pens with us. This is not as much as we’d like to bring to a show like this, but considering our recent machine issues and delays, it’s not too shabby! Here’s a quick view of what our inventory will look like.

There will be plenty of Draw Fillers as well as some pretty amazing materials that we haven’t used before!

We’ll be set up from Friday morning until Sunday evening.

If you can’t make the show, I’ll be doing my best to keep updates on our Instagram, Facebook and Twitter accounts.

We hope to see you there!

Brian at Edison
