Hello From Massachusetts!



Recommended Posts

Hello.

My name is Tom and I've been reading up and collecting fountain pens for almost a year. Yes, the bug hit me and has me curious to learn more about the industry. I love how passionate and kind everyone is in the community. I'm opening an online store soon for pens and some stationery products which is why I re-created my account. Happy to be back!

Welcome home. Pull up a stump and set a spell.

 

JAR do you remember me? I think my name was dontommasino before and you gave me ideas on pens to purchase a while back.

Glad to be back!

Welcome !

 

Although it's a lot of reading, I think you might glean good market information here. What characteristics fountain pen people desire in writing paper ? What do "cheapskate" fountain pen people expect in writing paper ?

 

Good luck.

Welcome back to our little corner of the universe from a pen user in San Diego.

Hello and welcome to FPN, from Cape Town, South Africa.

To sit at one's table on a sunny morning, with four clear hours of uninterruptible security, plenty of nice white paper, and a [fountain] pen - that is true happiness!

Tom,

 

Welcome back to the FPN.

 

I, of course, adore pens, paper & ink. It " saddens " me to know that you plan to open an online shop for FPs & stationery supplies. I am as passionate about paper as I am pens. Therefore, I'll be " forced " to check out your site! Good luck with your new venture.

 

Enjoy your time here.

If your out-go is more than your income,

 

Then your up-keep.

 

May be your Down-falll!!!

Greetings and welcome!

 

:W2FPN:

...The history, culture and sophistication; the rich, aesthetic beauty; the indulgent, ritualistic sensations of unscrewing the cap and filling from a bottle of ink; the ambient scratch of the ink-stained nib on fine paper; A noble instrument, descendant from a line of ever-refined tools, and the luster of writing,
with a charge from over several millennia of continuing the art of recording man's life.

I feel the same way about paper. I'm still building up inventory, but can't wait to open next month. Hope to see you there!

      Not sure if this has been suggested already but would a setting for localized regions or chapters in FPN be helpful? I don't know if there is a way to find local FPN members who would be nearby. I don't know if we want to be discoverable but a setting to know how many members are in 25, 50, or a 100 miles of each other might be helpful. We can create a regions specific network like Craigslist where people could use that to connect with nearby members, conduct in person sales, arrange FPN meetups

      Hi again all, I forgot to tell y'all that I made the post about Sweden ink PIF. Most have probably found it long ago, but here's a link, anyway:

      I read your blog post and all the replies with much interest. I'm a FP user in Australia. Been part of this forum for years but rarely post. I did come across your ink sharing thread and considered participation. For me it's not lack of interest but lack of time to play around with FP and inks. I'd feel bad to put my hand up for the box and just have it sit until gosh knows when...   I also think that the FP community in Australia is smaller, and I wonder how many in the community are

      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.
