We, Neal and Cassie Frank, would like to extend a very special thank you to all of our customers. February 6, 2015 will be the date for our 19th year in operation. From our humble beginnings in a 101 square foot store (closet) to our current location in Sanbusco Market Center and internet presence, it has been a great ride. We’re looking forward to serving pen lovers from around the world for another 19+ years.
We are getting ready to host our 20th Annual Santa Fe Pen Fair. This year’s Fair is scheduled for Saturday, March 7, 2015 and Sunday, March 8, 2015. We will have new manufacturers at this year’s event, as well as our old standbys.
The series of Hand Writing Seminars for children ages eight to 16 was a huge hit at last year’s event. In fact, so many adults also expressed interest that next year we will have a couple of hand writing seminars for adults! I’m working with Sherry Bishop as you read this to develop plans for this years Pen Fair.
The 2015 Santa Fe Edition XVII Pen is a collaboration between Santa Fe Pens and Italy's Delta Pen Co. There are only 40 fountain and 10 roller ball pens available. Each pen will be stamped XVII and numbered (xx/40 for FPs and xx/10 for RBs). This year's pen is hand-made in Italy and is created from a special celluloid rod stock that has not been used since 2002. Our Santa Fe Edition features a rich orange marble celluloid and contrasting deep blue veining. The pen is patterned on the Delta Journal model, and the pen will have the unique Fusion 18K and alloy nib available in EF, F, M, B and Stub sizes. This design creates a very comfortable platform for hours of effortless writing. This is our second collaboration with Delta and we’re both proud of the finished results. The fountain pen operates with either a converter or cartridge and the roller ball accepts the Standard International-sized Roller ball refills. The fountain pen price is $575 and the roller ball price is $425. Brown pen with Amber stone, Ice Blue pen with Denim Lapis stone, Kiwi pen with Jade stone, Purple pen with Amethyst stone, Red pen with Garnet stone and Santa Fe pen (brown matte finish) with Turquoise stone. The price is $69.95 each. Please click on our New Products tab or click on the “Retro 1951″ tab under “Pen Companies” on our home page for more information or to place an order!
