Hi Pen Fans!
It was about 2 months ago when we announced that the Menlo was coming to the Production Line and that the Pearlette was being phased out. We wanted to give our customers plenty of warning so that everyone that wanted a Production Line Pearlette would have a chance to pick one up before they are all gone.
As of yesterday, we have ceased manufacture of the Production Line Pearlette. Please note, however that we have not discontinued the Signature Line version of the Pearlette. So we can still make custom Pearlettes, but remember that the price of a custom Pearlette is higher than the Production Line version.
We still have a small amount of Production Line Pearlettes inventoried to ship to our retailers. But once those have been shipped, no more will leave our facility, and whatever our retailers have stocked will be the last of the Production Line Pearlette.
In the interest of making a clean transition and also for ease of our retailer inventory, we have lifted our normal fixed retail pricing and are allowing our retailers to discount the Pearlette.
This is the first time in our history that we’ve ever allowed an Edison Production Line pen to be discounted. There are no plans in the future to do this again. So if you’ve ever considered picking up a Pearlette, now is the time!
Again, this discontinuation is of the Production Line version of the Pearlette only. You can still order custom Signature Line versions directly from Edison.
If anyone has any questions, just reach out!
