Another European Retailer for the Production Line!

Hi Pen Fans!

I’ve very please to announce that La Couronne du Comte from the Netherlands, is now carrying the Edison Production Line!

I’ve known the general manager, Dennis van der Graaf, for a bit now and I’ve also enjoyed following their social media campaigns.

A lot of the reasons for adding La Couronne du Comte to our retailers comes from my European customers telling me how wonderful of a business they run.  So between my relationship with Dennis and the word of my customers, I’m sure that the Edison Production Line will be in good hands over in the Netherlands!

You can see the Edison Line on their webstore by clicking here. 

Thanks!

Introducing a New Retailer Carrying the Production Line – Tim Girdler Pens!

Hi Pen Fans!

I’m very happy to introduce a new retailer that will be carrying our Production Line.

Here at Edison, we are typically a little picky about who carries our Production Pens, and there is no exception in our newest retailer – Tim Girdler of Tim Girdler Pens. (you can see Tim hard at work in the pic below).

I’ve known Tim from the Pen Show circuit for a while now, and we’ve done plenty of business in the past.  You couldn’t meet a nicer or more honest person!

Tim’s business has historically been focused on vintage pen resoration, as well as custom nib grinds and tuning.  When he began branching out to selling new pens, we figured that our businesses would compliment each other very well.

I encourage you to visit Tim’s site and have a look around.  Not only at the Edison Pens, but be sure to check out his custom grind and pen restoration services.  Tim spent a lot of time under the tutelage of Richard Binder.  You can rest assured of great work when you are in the hands of a protege of Richard’s!

You can visit this page to see the Edison Pens on his site.  And remember that having Tim as an Edison retailer gives you another option for a custom ground nib on your Edison Pen out the door!

Thanks!

Farewell, Encore!

Hi Pen Fans!

Edison and Goulet have come to a difficult decision regarding the Encore.  It will be discontinued.  Whatever inventory left is currently with the Goulet’s, and is being sold at a discount.  When these pens are gone, they are gone.

This was a bit of a difficult decision, as personally, the Encore is one of my favorite pens!  The LE Encore is still my daily writer, and has been for the last year!  Bottom line, the Encore was a fairly popular pen, but not as popular as the rest of the Production Line, and it didn’t sell with the volume required for us to keep it at a production pace. 

The lower demand had a lot to do with price.  The main driving factor behind this was the cast medallion in the finial.  Although I feel that it’s gorgeous, they aren’t cheap to manufacture, and this drove the retail price higher than any other Production Line Pen.

So this decision is probably best, and then we will move onto some other projects that will also be unique and appealing in the near future, so stay tuned!

Please visit the Goulet Website for more information as well as a video from the Goulets regarding this decision.

Price of the pen will be marked down from $165 to $145.  Click here to buy this pen before they are gone!

I’m proud to announce that there is a new international retailer carrying the Edison Production Line.

Edison Nouveau Encore Price Reduction…

Hi Pen Fans.

Just a quick blog post to make everyone aware of a price reduction on the Edison Nouveau Encore.

The price was $185.  Is it now $165.

Essentially, I was able to find a way to streamline the medallion manufacturing process.  The first batch was very labor intensive regarding casting and plating.  Since then, I’ve found ways to cut my cost and time without sacrificing the product. 

The Goulets and I discussed this, and came to the conclusion that a lower price is in order.  We also discussed what to do regarding customers who purchased the pen at the originial price.

We have decided to provide an Edison/Goulet refund for the difference to everyone who purchased the Encore at the original price.  So if you are an Encore owner, you should have already received Goulet Pen Company store credit via email.

Brian Goulet outlines the same topic in this blog post over at Ink Nouveau.

As a side note – the new Production Line Pen will be set to go this coming week!  Stay tuned!

Thanks!

Anderson Pens Now Carrying Edison!

Hi Pen Fans!

Just a quick update regarding the Production Line.

We are proud to announce that AndersonPens.net is now carrying the Production Line!  So the Collier and Hudson can now be purchased through the Andersons in addition to all of our other retailers.  The Collier can be seen here, and the Hudson here.

Make sure to check out their website linked above, or you can see their blog here.

Many of you have probably figured out that we at Edison choose our retailers carefully.  We like to sell our Production Line through "mom-and pop" retailers that embody the same values that we do towards customer service, and the Andersons are certainly no exception.

We’ve known Brian and Lisa for a long time now from the pen show circuit.  Click here to learn more about them.

The Andersons have been well known for their vintage pens, especially Esterbrooks, so if you are an Estie fan, make sure to give them a visit.  And if you want to hear a real amazing tale, ask them how the Esterbook line of pens actually led to their marriage!  Very cool story!

But of course, they do carry plenty of very nice modern pens, yours truly now included!  So be sure to visit their website and/or blog.

So the Edison Production Line is now carried by Goldspot Luxury Gifts, The Goulet Pen Company, ISellPens.com, Richard Binder, and we are proud to now add Anderson Pens to this list.  Click Here for links to each of their websites and purchasing information.

Side note – I realize that I mentioned that a new pen model would be coming this week!  Bear with me!  I should have this announcement ready tomorrow or Thursday!

Thanks,

Brian at Edison
