Today we have a pen case giveaway for two lucky readers of The Desk.
Pen Boutique generously sent us two pen cases to share with you. The first is the Yak Leather Premium 24-Pen Case, Black (Reg $80.00, Sale $49.99). As the name implies, this black buffalo leather case was designed to hold 24 of your most precious pens.
The case is divided into two sides, each with 12 pen loops. The loops themselves are interesting; they are double loops with leather loops on top and elastic loops underneath, to hold your pens securely in place.
The divider between the sides is removable (it is held in place by velcro) so this case can function either as a travel case or to display your pens. The case closes with a sturdy zipper, and there are even slots where you can lock the case closed with a small travel lock. Closed, the case measures 13″ x 9.25″ (32.5 cm x 23 cm).
In general I was impressed by this pen case. It seems sturdy and well made, and the leather is nice and soft. My only complaint is that the soft black velvet inside seems to attract lots of dust and fuzz – it was crazy difficult to photograph without all those little motes showing.
The second case we received from Pen Boutique is the Yak Leather Premium One Pen Pouch, Brown ($20.00). This is a brown leather case, with a classic look and a flap that folds over. It is perfect for holding a pen in your pocket with style. When closed the case is approximately 7″ x 1.5″ (17.5 cm x 3.75 cm).
This is a nice case as well and held most of my pens comfortably. My only complaint about this case is that it is somewhat stiff. This might be the point of the case (to provide a more rigid case for your pen), though I expect it the leather might break in and soften a bit over time.
TO ENTER: Leave a comment ON THIS POST ON THE BLOG and tell us which pen case you would like to win! Only one of each model is available so in drawing a winner, we will select the first name and they will win the pen case they have chosen. The second name selected will win the pen case they have chosen, assuming it is not the same model selected by winner #1. If they picked the same model, we will select another name until we have selected someone who has chosen a different pen case… and so on, until we have given away both cases. Make sense?
FINE PRINT: All entries must be submitted by 10pm CST on Sunday, April 29, 2018. All entries must be submitted at wellappointeddesk.com, not Twitter, Tumblr or Facebook, okay?

Please include your actual email address in the comment form so that I can contact you if you win. I will not save email addresses or sell them to anyone — pinky swear – just email you if you win.
