Scriptus Toronto 2014 Free Admission!



Recommended Posts

D Armstrong

We are thrilled to announce that admission to Scriptus 2014—only three months away—will be entirely free of charge!

 

The Scriptus team is committed to making the show as accessible as possible. While certain measures, such as wheelchair ramps and elevator access, are obvious requirements for an event like this, we feel that other factors also need to be considered. While economic woes are considered by many to be in the recent past, the reality is that charging admission to a pen & writing show will exclude some who want to attend.

 

Writing is a basic form of communication, and we are privileged to live in a part of the world where it is considered a basic ability. With this in mind, why shouldn’t it also be basic to have access to the finest writing tools?

 

At Scriptus we will have vendors from across North America with the best quality writing equipment, the finest stationery, the most vibrant inks, and the greatest excitement in sharing what they have to offer. And we are thrilled to welcome anyone interested; come join us, without exclusion.

 

Part of our mission statement—the one the show administration discusses in private—is that we consider event quality as more important than profit. Greater accessibility means more people, more interest, and a higher profile for pens and writing in Canada; all hallmarks of quality in a show like this. Additionally, the excellent venue provides full control over crowd flow, and the management of any possible crisis. We have the utmost confidence that this admissions policy will contribute to the show’s resounding success.

 

So put Sunday, November 2, 2014 on your calendar, and join us at Scriptus 2014, Toronto’s pen & writing show!

We're working on having a repairs table, so the answer is a qualified yes. We will announce when the arrangement is confirmed for sure.

 

I do nib work and other repairs, but will not be doing it at the show itself (running two booths and half the show, all at once, tends to crimp one's style a bit.) :gaah:

Great, thx! I have a large stub (a TWSBI 1.5mm nib unit) that I'd love ground into a smaller Cursive Italic. Is that the type of thing you can do outside of the show ?

Heh heh. I generally limit myself to re-aligning damaged tines, and smoothing (which is basically the same thing, just on a smaller scale). While I have done custom grinding, I generally avoid it like the plague, as there are a lot more factors involved than just the size and shape of the nib.

 

On the positive side, though, the fellow we are talking to specializes in custom grinding. We should have things firmed up soon with him.

So, who is getting excited for this? I'm going to shop (not exhibit) but I have some 'starter pens' I want to sell cheap (Jinhao, Noodlers, Monteverde etc), plus some bottles of ink to trade (Sailor Jentle Sky High anyone ?) , maybe I'll bring those and see what happens!
