Custom Pen Wrap By Pacific Coast Pen



Recommended Posts

Wanda aka PacificCoastPens made me this awesome wrap and I had to share. The pictures that I took didn't really do the wrap justice, so I'm posting the pictures that she send me. If you're in the market for a custom wrap, Wanda's your girl. I couldn't be happier with how it turned out. When I got the package I started giggling like the pen geek that I am.

This wrap is really nice :thumbup: How do you reach Wanda re ordering a wrap?

 

I sent her a PM. She responded very quickly.

 

Wanda's FPN name is PacificCoastPens.

 

I have several pen wraps from her, designed to hold pens up to the Danitrio Mikado size (BIG pens!). I've been extremely happy with my wraps.

 

The blue wrap here is my favorite, and it goes with me every day to work, full of pens. It may be a "standard" 6 pen wrap, but it holds my Danitrio Densho without a problem.

I have about 5 of Wanda's pen wraps. I use them all the time and they are absolutely the best. She's a lovely lady.

I've been using one of Wanda's pen wraps with outer denim just like the one in the picture in the original post (but a different interior) for about 18 months now, and it is perfect for my needs. My other pen cases now reside in storage boxes!

Here are a couple more data points on Wanda and her wraps/cases.

 

You've seen of course that there are some wraps from other makers that are very pretty and somewhat ornate. My contention is that some of these show better than they go. Most of them are made from material that When (not if) there's an inkcident they have to go to the dry cleaners. They also usually have those very pretty ties that well...tie that while they look very nice can be fiddly if one needs to get to a pen or store one quickly.

 

One of the areas where Wanda excels is her flexibility and versatility. If you can give her a little time, she can find both the interior and exterior fabrics to your liking and if necessary use such that can be machine or hand washed when they get ink soiled. Most of her wraps also come with Velcro holding straps that are quick and easy peasy to get in an out of.

 

This first wrap I had her make for FPNer Florence Nightingangel I specifically wanted one easy to get into and one that could be washed. Wanda handled that with no problem.

 

The second case I had her do for my Mother's Christmas present of a retrofitted (Hi Chris!) Esterbrook ballpoint. As you can see, I think she did a wonderful job matching the fabric and made it exactly to the size specs I gave her.

 

The fabrics she uses and her workmanship and customer service are amazing especially for the very reasonable prices she charges.

Gorgeous!

Thank you all for your kind comments.

 

I will be at the LA Pen Show in a couple weeks as a browser and pen buyer. I may consider having my own booth in the future. I will bring some premade wraps with me in case people bump into me and want to buy. I will have to do this in the parking lot and not the ballroom.

 

If you have any interest, you can PM me and I can arrange a meeting. I expect I will be there from opening to after lunch...or until my husband wears out. Maybe 4 hours in the morning. I will also be staying in the hotel Saturday pm.

 

By that time, I will have made some business cards. Otherwise, transactions can be done via FPN.

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav

      If one wanted to do this, one could just use the "About Me" field which appears to be unlimited in size.  And if a bunch of people wanted to cooperate, the Member Title field (or signature) could be used to this end - "Ink Giver" (or some such) could be used by those with inks to give...  No software edits required.
    • Arkanabar
      I suppose the update issue could be mitigated.  One would post a link in signature, to the particular part of your profile where you list the inks that you're willing to post samples to others, gratis.  But looking at profiles, I suspect that would require an edit to the board's software, potentially a nontrivial task.
    • A Smug Dill
      I read your idea as getting willing givers to publicly register as members of a set of heterogenous servers, in a system in which a client would explicitly select an available server from a list, to which he/she will then send a request privately and asynchronously. Request handling in the system is unmanaged, and individual requests are handled by the targeted servers completely independently on each other. I think the model is fine, although there are some operational concerns you may want to
    • Daneaxe
      First thought on the method/system of ink sharing: Think the best way, to begin with, is to follow the way of the US thread: offer up a (small) list of inks you are willing to PIF, to whoever expresses interest. Write clearly in the "mission statement" how it works, with a tiny "quid pro quo" that even a struggling student can comply with, i.e. post your opinion and a writing sample, with option of a full review if desired.   So yours truly might say: "I'm offering up samples of D
