Here Are The Fountain Pen Inks I've Accumulated Since Last October (And Yes, I Know I Have A Problem)

A Friendly Reminder
We just wanted to send out a reminder that we'll be hosting our monthly Arizona Pen Meet Up, Saturday March 11th, from 4-7 pm at the Karas Pen Co facility (126 S. Country Club Dr. Mesa, AZ 85210). We'll have complimentary beverages and snacks available. Our pens will be on display for anyone to try out. We'll have the shop open for casual walk-thrus. We'll be happy to answer any questions you may have about our brand but also about pens and ink in general. Paul will be available for discussion on vintage fountain pen and pen repair if necessary. We look forward to hosting you this weekend. We still have a few of the Knox Series pens for those of you that wanted an up close and personal look at them, and we can explain the process a bit better that goes into creating them. We'll also have the Hix Design collaboration on display for people to try out and handle.
We've been wanting to offer notebooks for quite some time now, but we couldn't find a brand with good quality, fountain pen friendly paper that was reasonably priced. On a recent trip to Oregon, we discovered a brand named PENTALIC that meets our requirements. We hope they meet yours!
Here are a few writing samples, showing how the paper performs with both vintage flex and modern wide-and-wet stubs. In our opinion, just the right balance between no-bleeding and a level of absorbency that works well with all the nibs we've tried.
Their Traveler Pocket Journals are available in three sizes, feature heavy 74 lb (120 GSM) paper, and secures with an elastic strap. They come in ruled and grid paper in addition to their plain "sketch" notebooks.
Discounted, introductory pricing will end July 31st, so don't delay.
6x4 Inch Grid
6x4 Inch Ruled
6x4 Inch Sketch (Plain) -- Sale price $7.95
8x6 Inch Sketch (Plain) -- Sale price $11.95

We're so pleased to be offering the Pentalic fountain-pen-friendly journals, that we are including one of the 4x3 inch mini-journals as a gift with every Ranga or PSP-Ranga pen purchased. (GIVEAWAY ENDS JULY 31, 2015.)
*****It’s April, and that means it’s time to start buying those postcards again to raise money for some graduating seniors going in to college. The applications have been coming in quickly here as it gets closer to the April 4 deadline.
