Pen Custimization Article



Recommended Posts

I came across this online article from a publication I was not familiar with (inside Hook) about Montegrappa offering pen customization options from their web site. Very strangely, the author who had some knowledge of fountain pens and collecting, made no mention of the many smaller pen manufacturers who have been doing this for some time. The piece made it made it sound like this was an entirely novel business concept. Perhaps it is for large pen companies (I have no idea how big Montegrappa is in comparison to other manufacturers) but it's not a new idea. I looked for a way to contact the author, but saw no easy method to do so. An odd and unfortunate omission in the article.

Montegrappa is not a small company

certainly not the size of Edison or Franklin Christof

and a very ancient company

for them I'm sure offering customization is a new concept

and I'm sure they would never have done it, had it not been computerized, viceversa they would never have been able to face the complications...

even now I think they offer customization on one pen only (and I'm not sure how effective it will be).

No doubt is very different to asking Ranga pens in India to make the section of your pen wider or use a different ebonite colour...

I doubt the author of the article knows anything about smaller pen companies that have been doing custom pens all along, so you're right there, but it is probably a different world.
