Come See Us at the SF Pen Show!

Col-o-ring SF

If you’ve been following our Instagram feed, you may have seen our special Col-o-ring edition that we created for the San Francisco Pen Show. The books will only be available in San Francisco and once they sell out, we will not reprint these covers. If you’re interested in this edition, be sure to grab one in SF or ask a friend to pick one up for you. They will sell for $10, just like the regular Col-o-ring books. We will also have our regular Col-o-ring Ink Testing Books, Col-o-dex cards, tabs and much, much more.

A couple weeks ago, after a successful St. Louis Pen Show adventure, Bob decided it would be worth it to trek out to SF and try to sell our wares on the west coast. So, thanks to the kindness and dedication of the Vanness team, we are hitching a ride out to SF in the PENMAN van.

Bob all packed for SF Pen Show

Bob, Mr. Well-Appointed Desk AKA Skylab Letterpress, we be riding shotgun with Mike Vanness on the cross-country trek. He’s all packed up and ready to head out. But it’s not just us on this epic trip….

Our good pal, Jessica Coles, the duchess of Esterbrook is also coming out to SF and she’ll be at the table right next to The Well-Appointed Desk! So, convenient! And what is a Vanness Pen Shop table without Lisa Vanness? And in a strange twist of fate, I am actually helping the Vanness table so Mr. Well-Appointed Desk is in charge of our table. And who is this other handsome fellow….? Might he also be making an appearance at the SF show?  Now you definitely won’t want to miss this event.

We are up to our eyeballs in ink, as usual.

And rumor has it that Mr. Vanness has expanded his legendary suit collection…. come to the SF Pen Show to see them for yourself! Best get a weekend pass to see them all.

  1. I met you last year at the SF Pen Show! You helped me pick out a few inks. Wish I could be there this year, but I’ve since moved to Chicago. Enjoy!
