Hi FPN Members,
We are now working on creating a new brand of fountain pens for isellpens. These will be some very classy resin pens well under $100.00. Some manufacturing will be out of the USA and not in China .
I would love some feedback for a brand name. What would you think of brand iSellpens or Pen-King?
Or a better name as any suggestions are welcomed. Also what do you think of pens with nothing on them without a brand?
I appreciate and thank you for any feedback you can provide me.
Todd & Theresa
Do you have some photos of your flagship prototypes? You can use what they look like as inspiration Not trying to get a sneak peek at the said goods hehe.

JeanManuel makes a very good point about international appeal. That can be a real challenge, so I like JeanManuel's suggestion of choosing a name tied to Arizona. It would appeal both to Yanks and also to people from other cultures who are familiar with:
- westerns (90% of the world's pop.?),
- native American culture,
- and so on.
Arizona is a uniqe place, and is widely known. Plus, the number of options for model names is almost endless. Say you went with Arizona Pens or The Arizona Pen Co. . Building on what others have suggested, You could have the:
Arizona Red Rock,
Ax. Burro ( if you do a miniature),
Arizona Branding Iron
And on,..and on

I rather like Nussbaum Pens, Arizona Pens, and Mesa Pens, myself (except that the last makes me think of my Konrad in Red Mesa Tortoise). I don't particularly like the cutsie ones; I think you want to have something more distinguished sounding (something with some gravitas, but not pretentious either). Copper State Pens is also good.

- The Write Pen (from the Write Pen Company
- Just Write Pens (from the Just Write Pen Company)
- Write Now
- AZ Writer (AZ Writer Pen Company).
I could go on for a while but, I think I will stop the "pun"ishment!
You could have a contest and a special prize for the name selected. Please note, all previous suggestions should be considered as an officail entry. It already has the date and time stamp
P.S. Good Luck Todd & Theresa

Phoenix is also good ... but you have to make sure to get the beak right or he might look a bit too much like a Pelikan!
Too many pens, too little time!

Since Scottsdale is near the Phoenix Mountains Preserves, how about Phoenix Pens? A Phoenix is a nice logo, too.
I actually like Phoenix as the brand name, without the Pens. Multiple associations and you can go classy, playful, or a combination of the two. And it would allow for a beautiful logo on the pen - I am one who does not like unmarked pens for one reason only: how to refer to that wonderful pen you find in your possession years later? I have too many mysteries in my collection! And you could have the phoenix both beautiful and understated, for example as a cap jewel. (But then I'm partial to birds).

I sing to your volcanoes, to your meadows and flowers, that are like mementos of the greatest of my loves;
If I am to die away from you, may they say I am sleeping, and bring me back home.
