  1. Hello everyone, I went to the DC Pen show last weekend, and fell in love with a pen that I didn't know anything about. I've attached a few pictures to show the pen opened and closed with a full sized pen case and lined notebook paper for scale. (Sorry for the bad quality pics -- I had trouble getting them small enough to post!) This little acrylic Laban pocket pen caught my eye immediately, and even after walking through the whole show, I just kept going back to it. I have a weakness for pocket pens, and this one isn't too thin and feels very comfortable in my hand. It twists to post, so makes a sturdy full sized pen to write with. And it writes beautifully! It has a German fine steel nib that is smooth and consistent without being a gusher, so perfect for work, when I sometimes have to use less than ideal paper. I was a bit worried about the metal grip section, but because of the angle, my fingers don't slip on it. Also, despite the small size, it fits a normal sized converter. I have a few friends who enjoy their Laban pens, so even though I hadn't researched the company or pens much, I took the plunge and bought it. But I can't figure out the model name of the pen, since there's not a lot online about Laban. It's not a Expression, which is the only Laban pocket pen I see reviews for. Does anyone know the model name for this beautiful little pocket pen? I'd really love to be able to name my new favorite every day carry pen! Thanks!

    Dc Pen Show Release

    We're coinciding the release of our latest fountain pen with our first trip to the DC Pen Show. Our latest release in our Signature Series, the Vertex fountain pen will be available for purchase exclusively at the DC Pen Show August 3-5. This new release is a pocket fountain pen machined from U.S. made acrylic acetate. It is designed as an eyedropper but can also accept standard international cartridges. It features a non-standard grip section that widens to the width of the barrel and when machined out of translucent material provides an "ink window" that is visible with the cap on or off. The Vertex utilizes two o-rings in the section and barrel, one below the section threads in the barrel and the other at the base of the nib; these two o-rings eliminate the need for silicone grease to seal the grip section and barrel. A third o-ring in the cap provides for an airtight cap seal as well as a snap cap design. Designed with a torpedo shaped body, soft curves, a concave upper cap design; the features are comfortable and provide a unique look to a traditional design. The Vertex fountain pen retails for $120 dollars with a Bock polished steel nib, is available in Black or Green, with grip sections in Translucent Orange, Red, Blue, Amber, and Smoke. It comes with a custom fit, black with grey stitching Rickshaw Bagworks pen sleeve. The full production run expected release is late September 2018. For more information check out the pictures or our video introducing the pen.

    Fed Pens Blog/grand Re-Opening!

    https://federalistpens.com/blogs/news/the-federalist-pens-papers-19-new-site Here is the link to my latest blog- from my new Shopify Platform! A much better shopping experience! I am very pleased with this change! Even the "Back Office" at Shopify is a pleasant experience! a "One Man Pen Store" can run it! To minimize down time- I have also purchased the http://federalistpens.com URL- the old URL will also point to this site (as soon as DNS Servers allow it). I was actually reluctant to use that URL when I first started.. no disrespect to Hamilton! LOL! Visit the site- Read the Blog! More news in the coming days/weeks! Off to DC! (Same room as last year- first small ballroom on left!) Frank- "Federalist Frank"
  4. Nathan Tardif sent out a news release about his latest ink named "House Divided". The description sounds like a semi-permanent purplish ink with a blue component that washes away leaving behind a permanent red line. His announcement indicates it will be available for the DC Pen Show. I plan to attend Saturday and will be looking for a bottle.
  5. Happy Anniversary Fed Pens! It's been two years already since we started Federalist Pens! It's hard to believe that it has been that long already! I have come a long way since the forum days of selling vintage items to fund the hobby that I love! The hobby that I still share with you, even as a retailer! The support has been great, and we have acquired several great brands over the past year! For pen brands- we have added Bexley, Aurora, and Montegrappa to the family! In ink, we took a chance, and added Robert Oster Inks to the line up exactly a year ago this month! Robert asked me to carry the products last July thru social media, and I agreed to be the first US Dealer! We debuted them at last year's DC Pen Show! Now- Oster Signature Inks has 6 US Dealers, and 80 different colors! It sounds funny to say all this now, but Oster Inks were new to the pen community. Robert has accomplished all of his success in less than two years! We took on sponsorship opportunities this year as well! I have become a regular sponsor for the "Well Appointed Desk". Ana actually purchased the first Robert Oster bottle from me at last year's DC Show (she actually waited for me to unpack the Oster Products...), and she did the review of Robert Oster "Aqua" not too long afterward. Thanks to great reviews such as that, Oster Inks have really taken off! I also donated both an Aurora Pen (Inkdependence), and a Bexley Pen (The Pen Addict) for reviews. These pens were given away as my way of "Paying it Forward"! Look for more review/giveaways and sponsorship opportunities in the future! Of course, some brands have "come and gone" at Fed Pens. I try my best to keep my site and products as fresh and purposeful as possible. It was important to me to carry well-known and respected brands. This was vital when I first started selling products as a retailer. It still is important to make sure the products I carry are working for you! This is a very competitive business market, and this is very obvious at Pen Shows. We do work together, and "help" each other by sending customers to other dealers when we cannot help them (Well, I DO, ANYWAY...). Questions can vary at shows.. one of the more interesting questions my brother and I get is "Does the pen come with a box"? I am asked this question more than once at every show. I am shocked to see people surprised when I say "Yes"! We are authorized, professional, dealers selling you a brand new product that we represent- WHY WOULD YOU NOT GET A BOX?? Do not be a Sucker! When you deal with Federalist Pens (ME), you get: -The item you purchased -The box the product comes with -Paperwork and warranty from the manufacturer -Bonus of our choice (i.e. sample, brand ephemera, Fed Pens bag, product boutique bag, etc..) -Federalist Pens (MY) 30-Day no Hassle/Haggle Warranty! Full Refund or replacement! (Only exclusion to this is with NOS Vintage Products- cannot be replaced...) DC Supershow next month starts Year Three for Fed Pens! (We debuted at the 2015 Show!) Stay tuned for more great deals, new products, and my continued support of the Pen Community! Happy Shopping!Federalist Frank Anniversary Sale! www.federalistpensonline.com To celebrate- the site is programmed to give you an additional 10% Off at Checkout! There is no coupon needed- just spend $20 or more, and Checkout will apply the discount! You will save over 20% on most items ALL MONTH LONG! It is my way of thanking you for the rapid success we are having! Shop Now! Many items will not be this low again! Some of the brands I represent do not even allow a discount- this will be waived during this period! Checkout does not discriminate (well, it could if I programmed it that way)! Take advantage of seldom discounted brands, as well as "Pre-Orders" (See Below) There is more! Most pen items will be shipped to US residents FREE this month! US Shipping is waived on pens $25 or more this month! Enjoy reduced shipping on ink, paper, and accessories! Thank You for your loyalty, and business!Here's to Year Three 2017-2018! New Products!
