Oops... this post was supposed to go live last month and I just noticed it was hidden for some reason! We are proud to announce that our 2019 Leather Roll-up Pouches are now in stock and feature a higher quality leather grain and reinforced strap. It took a change of manufacturing partners and ponying up some extra coinage but the results are well worth the effort and expense... but don't worry we are not going up a penny on the price. At $35 these pen rolls are more of a bargain than ever.
The last few months we have been working on perfecting a manual adjustment to reduce the amount of pressure required to flex our FPR flex nibs. This half-moon cutout from the shoulders of these nibs was inspired by various "ease my flex" experiments on www.FountainPenNetwork.com. Each of these new "Ultra Flex" nibs has been manually ground and polished so as to reduce flex resistance while maintaining the integrity of the nib against tine springing. Check them out!!!
Here at FPR we are always working to add new affordable products to our line up. We recently added FPR Ink and we are working on offering a line of pens fitted with our larger #6 nibs. We would love to hear from you about what types of products you would like to see added to the site. Think "what types of fountain pen related products would I like to get at a more affordable price" and let us know. We will see what we can do!
On March 22nd we will be merging our US and International operations in order to cut costs and keep prices low. Consolidating to a single distribution location out of Texas will allow us to streamline our operation and provide more consistent customer service. We are passing the savings on to our customers by lowering our international shipping rates to $9 and offering the same low prices on all our products. And don't worry, all your favorite FPR products will still be available for US and global distribution... just give us a week or two to get a few remaining products switched...
We are happy to announce the launch of our US sales site. This will help our US customers get their products much faster! Right now we can only offer a limited selection of products but will be steadily adding new products to the site over the next few months.
